Tuckpointing is a method of pointing brickwork designed to make the bricks look neater and straighter. Tuckpointing is usually done for cosmetic reasons. Tuckpointing, sometimes called “pointing” is done by using two contrasting colors of mortar in the mortar joints of brickwork, one colour matching the bricks themselves, to give an impression that very fine joints have been made.
We have over 50 years of experience in our tuckpointing services. Whether a small repair, or a large job, we have the background in all types of brickwork to provide superior tuckpointing. We use high quality mortar for all our tuckpointing work, to ensures that our work will last a long time and look professional while being weather resistant.
