“Tuck-pointing,” sometimes referred to as “repointing” is the removal and replacement of mortar that has deteriorated over time. Mortar is often the victim of all the stress and strains of changing weather conditions, including sunlight, snow, wind, driving rain and frost. Mortar plays a crucial role in protecting the brickwork. Over time mortar breaks down leaving the bricks in your wall without the structural stabilization they need. This allows water to enter your home which leads to damage both inside and outside of the home.
