Tuckpointing

What is Tuckpointing?

Tuckpointing is a mortar joint repair process in masonry construction. It is the process of removing the deteriorated mortar joints from the masonry and cutting them to a uniform depth and filing with a fresh mortar mix. Tuckpointing is not only performed on old joints, but also for improper joints of new walls.

· This process allows you to keep the existing material and base without having to remove and replace.

· Historical brick homes or exterior brick walls are so easing to the eyes. However, every brick building requires much care and attention because they age or deteriorate over time; thus, it requires maintenance or repair. However, tuckpointing is one of the most effective ways to ensure that every exterior brick structure remains timelessly beautiful.

How Tuck Pointing is done:

Step 1

First, assessing where the damaged mortar should be done. And then, prepare the needed equipment like ladders or scaffolding to make sure you reach the area safely.

Step 2

And then, start by removing a depth of at least one inch in the mortar joints. Some masons do the process of joint removal by using a hammer and chisel or with a 4″ angle grinder. However, there are also different ways to do this.

Step 3

After that, there will be debris and dust from the ground-out mortar joints, which you will brush off using a masonry brush. But if you have a high-pressure nozzle with you, that will do too.

Step 4

As suggested by the mortar manufacturer, create a mortar mix in a wheelbarrow with clean water. And make sure that it matches your brick color. This might be a complicated process because it requires blending with mortar pigment, which is sometimes a struggle to achieve the exact match. Getting the precise ratio of pigment to mortar would help!

Step 5

Next is filling up every joint with mortar. Start filling wet mortar with the horizontal joints, and make sure you are using the right tool for the size of the joints.

Step 6

The next step would be allowing the mortar to cure first. Let it sit rather for about 30 minutes for the curing process. Loose mortar must be brushed out from the joint. It is also recommended to keep the area with moisture, either by covering it with plastic sheeting or misting it with water for 3 days.

Step 7

After the construction has been completed, you may apply a masonry cleaner to remove residual haze. And then, you may proceed to apply a sealer on it; however, it is not necessary.

Ram was very responsive, and gave us an excellent rate for our masonry job. His people did fantastic work, and everything was completed on-time. I will definitely contact Ram again next time I need work done.

Highly recommend this contractor. I normally hate hiring contractors, but Ram was very knowledgeable, super courteous, and he gave me a fair price for my concrete job—and importantly, he didn’t oversell it. He was prompt and remained in contact from beginning to end of the job and his crew was professional and thorough. I would definitely call on Ram again should I need more such work done in the future.

The managers were friendly and knowledgeable and, while there was a little confusion early on (the source of my leak ended up being more complicated than expected), they did excellent work and got it all done much more quickly than expected. My house is waterproofed and everything is clean, dry, and back to the way it should be.

What an AMAZING job on my patio!!! My neighbors are now wanting them to build their patios. Ram was such a gentleman and so awesome to work with. He made so many accommodations for me, from timing, design change, and exchanging my stone to get the job done. I couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome. Their pricing was the best out of all the contractors that I looked at. You can’t go wrong. Also, the patio came out much better than I would have ever imagined. I highly recommend them for your home needs.

I had a retaining wall and new fence installed and I could not be happier with the quality of work and the customer service. From working with Ram who worked with me on the estimate to Gary who oversaw the project, they were top-notch professionals. They did everything they said they would do with the highest standard of quality and kept in touch with me through the entire process
