How Tuck Pointing Works
Tuck pointing, or pointing, was developed in England during the 18th century and continues to provide the best option for clean lines and joints between bricks. The process entails using two different colors of mortar in the joints of the brickwork to match the color of the brick and create a clean look for the walls of your home.
Accentuate the Brickwork for Your Home or Office!
If the brickwork of your home or office could use a cleaner look, tuck pointing is one option. Using a fine fillet of white material such as pipeclay or putty, we can push that into the joints of the masonry and cut it to create an aesthetically pleasing high contrast between the bricks. It creates tight, solid lines and accentuates the color of the bricks.
In the event that repairs are being made, the color of your current mortar and brick can be matched, restoring it to its original quality and presentation. It is not all about looks though, as tuck pointing fills the gaps and voids that leave your walls open to water damage and structural damage over time.
Here are some ways to tell if you could benefit from tuck pointing services:
- Cracks and voids in the masonry of your wall
- Crumbling mortar or edging
- Uneven brick work or shifts in the clean lines of your wall
These issues, although they may seem small, can lead to larger problems down the road. Tuck pointing services can provide a solid solution, and when you choose Joneson Roofing for your tuck pointing needs, you gain the advantage of professional and expeditious workmanship.
