Just like any exterior building product exposed to the elements, brick and masonry are subject to weathering. From building settlement to acids in the rain to freezing and thawing, your building may require some maintenance over the years. Tuckpointing can help address deterioration or cracked mortar joints. Tuckpointing consists of grinding, cleaning, and filling in mortar around the bricks. This is necessary when the mortar weakens and starts to fallout loosening the bricks. It is important to repair the masonry to ensure the integrity of the wall systems and building. A new application of mortar can also provide water resistance, prevent air drafts and provide a fresh new look.
