Masonry Grand Rapids proudly provides tuckpointing repair services for customers in West Michigan. Tuckpointing is a process that involves removing deteriorated mortar from brick and stone joints. We then refill the joint with new mortar that has a color that matches the existing mortar. A thin line of putty is then added in a contrasting color. This will create an upgraded look and you'll have the peace of mind knowing you have well-maintained joints in between the bricks. We offer fast and affordable tuckpointing services for customers in Grand Rapids. Tuckpointing can be done on almost any brick construction and should be maintained in order to keep the integrity of the structure. Feel Free to email or call us today for more info or to schedule a free consultation.
What is Tuckpointing
Tuckpointing is a service that removes damaged mortar from brick and replaces it with new mortar. Our team will rout out the old mortar between the bricks to a standardized depth. We then fill it in with new mortar that matches the color of your bricks. Next, we will cut a thin strip down the middle of the new mortar. Finally, we install a thin layer of mortar in a contrasting color. The process will create the illusion of perfectly straight and uniform bricklaying. It is a cost-efficient way to protect and beautify any brick structure. Our expert team of masons is available for tuckpointing.
Benefits of Tuckpointing
Why should you consider tuckpointing for your brick walls or masonry? Your brick or stone will last a lifetime. Unfortunately, the mortar in between doesn’t last as long. Weather exposure and time will deteriorate any type of mortar. Tuckpointing will rebuild the mortar joints and help waterproof your bricks. It will also dramatically improve the look of your brick walls, fireplaces, and chimneys. Our team has years of experience tuckpointing and will ensure your brick will look amazing and last for years after our services. Don’t hesitate to give us a call if you need tuckpointing services.
