Expert Tuckpointing Services for Building Restoration

Tuckpointing strengthens the integrity of a brick structure by refilling cracked or damaged joints. The brick tuckpointing process will enhance the visual appeal of your brick structure while avoiding extensive repairs, which are usually needed for exposure to environmental elements.

A common misconception is that tuckpointing and brick pointing are the same, but they are incredibly different. Tuckpointing brick is a proactive solution to prevent moisture and mold damage in exposed mortar joints. Brick pointing involves installing new brick and filling the mortar joints during construction. The commonality between these two restoration services is that they safeguard your building against environmental damage.

Our Approach to Structural Preservation

SRS works closely with brick building owners to ensure the best outcome for their commercial tuckpointing needs. Once we recognize that brick tuckpointing is necessary for your building, we will find the underlying cause of the damage and work diligently to fix the problem. Brick tuckpointing is an easy process for expert masons that includes:

  1. Removing damaged mortar from the brick building.
  2. Matching the new mortar to the current brick, cutting thin strips down the middle of the joints.
  3. Blending the final coat or mortar to match the original and fill the grooves.

Mid-Atlantic Tuckpointing

Brick tuckpointing commonly occurs every 25 to 30 years. However, specific locations may require frequent brick building restoration. Structural Restoration Services, Inc. serves the Mid-Atlantic region, which was home to the first settlers and the buildings they constructed — therefore, these brick buildings need regular repairs.

Along with natural aging, this region’s humidity, snow and rain play an instrumental part in weathering brick, resulting in the need for tuckpointing to preserve the structure and prevent damage.
