Owning a historic home is the dream of many homeowners. Unfortunately, an aging brick home will require maintenance from time to time. For example, while the life expectancy of the brick in your home is well over 100 years, the life of the mortar joints holding those brick together is only around 25 years. This is why we specialize in Tuckpointing.
“Tuckpointing,” sometime referred to as “repointing” is the removal and replacement of mortar that has broken down over time. By tuckpointing the mortar joints, we can help you to ensure the long term integrity of your brick home. Tuckpointing has an added benefit of being one of the most effective and permanent ways of decreasing water entry into brickwork. This is because the most primary means of water entry into a brick home is through debonded, cracked or deteriorated mortar joints.
