The process of repairing a mortar joint in a brick wall is traditionally called “tuckpointing.” The term comes from the process of tucking mortar into the damaged mortar joint with the point of a trowel called a “pointing trowel.” Tuckpointing is a critical maintenance task and keeps water from entering the brick wall cavity. If water is allowed to get past the mortar and into the wall, brick failure may occur such as cracking or spalling (popping off of the brick face).
Mortar color matching is our specialty, although we cannot guarantee 100% color match we come very close as this is critical to completing a job that doesn’t look botched or patched up.
We do both solid tuckpointing, which would include tuckpointing a whole wall or structure. As well as spot tuckpointing, in which case we just fill in spots as needed.
