Stewart Roofing Company provides tuckpointing services with expert craftsmanship for both residential and commercial properties. Tuckpointing is a critical maintenance task that keeps water from entering the brick wall cavity. If water is allowed to get past the mortar and into the wall, brick failure such as cracking or spalling (popping off of the brick face) may occur.
WHY IS TUCKPOINTING IMPORTANT?
Over time, the mortar in brick joints can naturally crack and deteriorate, leaving mortar joints weakened and open. This not only detracts from the aesthetics of your property but also from the structural integrity as well. The process of repairing a mortar joint in a brick wall is 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.”
