Have you started to notice loose bricks on your facade?

Perhaps you’ve had to dislodge a bee hive from in between cracks on your home. If so, then know it’s time to act to fix the problem now rather than waiting any longer. Regular brick maintenance and tuckpointing will ensure you won’t have to contend with major structural problems or expensive water damage. Not sure how tuckpointing works? No worries –– we’ve got you covered here:

What is Tuckpointing?

Tuckpointing is a practice developed around two hundred years ago that extends brick durability and circumvents the need to constantly replace loose bricks. Since bricks will last a very long time, but the mortar that holds them together won’t, tuckpointing was developed to replace mortar along the joints to maintain structural security without ruining the appearance of a building.

Can I Do it Myself?

Yes, you can. However, it’s worth noting that tuckpointing is an intricate operation, and you’ll be able to tell the difference between an amateur effort at masonry and a professional’s work.
