Masonry units are held together by mortar joints. Unfortunately, these mortar joints are susceptible to excessive moisture, which makes them weak and damaged over time. It is essential to do repointing or tuck-pointing from time to time. Repointing or tuck-pointing, in simple words, is the process of replacing damaged mortar with new mortar with the primary purpose of enhancing the life of a structure. If you are planning to get repointing done, you must choose to work with a professional with experience in brick, stone, concrete, and all other kinds of mortar construction. Tuck-pointing is a tricky task that requires skill and expertise, and a minor flaw can lead to significant issues at a later stage.

Why Brickworks Property Restoration?

When done improperly, repointing can lead to cracking, spalling, and having the surrounding masonry quickly deteriorate.  At Brickworks, we want to ensure your structure holds its integrity.  We accomplish this by taking special care in determining the correct repair and the appropriate mortar composition before we begin your property restoration project.
