Tuck pointing is the process of removing and replacing the mortar mortar between stones, blocks, or bricks.
Deteriorated brickwork weakens the chimneys integrity and allows cold drafts, water, and insects to invade your home. Solution is Tuck Pointing.

Our crews of masons are able to closely match the mortar that exists on your chimney and will carefully replace crumbling, deteriorating mortar. In addition to a visual inspection, we might also employ metal scrapers and low pressure sprayers to help determine the amount of damage. We will work carefully and meticulously to make sure that the work we are doing won’t cause any new gaps or cracks.
Mortar joints and bricks can crack as a result of:
Settling of the structure
