WHAT IS TUCKPOINTING AND WHY IS IT NEEDED?
Tuckpointing is a process in which you repair the brick by first removing the existing mortar from the damaged joint and then “tuck” the new mortar into the joint. It is a specialized skill and should only be performed by experienced and knowledgeable masonry professionals.
Tuckpointing becomes necessary when mortar develops cracks and holes. These voids come from various causes such as the entrance of water into hairline cracks, which during the winter can freeze and expand, widening the hole. Tuckpointing can prevent further damage to the surrounding brick as well as prevent leaking into your house.
