Tuckpointing Service in Schaumburg
As a building material, bricks tend to have a very long shelf life. However, whether you live in a home made of brick or have a brick porch, foundation, or chimney, there will come a time when the mortar between them starts to deteriorate.
When mortar deteriorates, it results in instability of the brick structure. Bricks in a home can come loose and fall out. Moss and mold can move into cracks and empty spaces. Chimneys and steps can collapse causing irreparable harm. If you are experiencing these types of issues with your home's brickwork, give us a call. We'll walk the exterior of your home and locate any areas where mortar is missing or powdering. And we'll provide you with a quote for tuckpointing.
What is tuckpointing? It's an odd-sounding term but simply the process of tucking new mortar between the joints in bricks with the point of a specialized trowel. Besides the obvious repairs that tuckpointing provides, it also adds an aesthetically-pleasing look to bricks by using two colors of mortar. The first one blends with the color of the brick to essentially hide a portion of the mortar. The second uses a contrasting color to create the appearance of a very thin line of mortar.
When you need tuckpointing in Schaumburg, it is important to call a professional. Our expert masons will create the proper mix of mortar so that it maintains the correct adhesive strength. They'll soak your brickwork so the new mortar will not seep into the old brickwork.
