Get Smooth, Streamlined Results With Our Repointing (Tuckpointing) Services
There’s no denying the timeless aesthetic that brickwork offers a home. It’s a design that never goes out of style, and its long-lasting durability ensures you can enjoy it for decades to come. That is… if it’s properly taken care of. Brick looks great if it’s well-maintained, but masonry that’s crumbling with flaking mortar joints? Well, that’s more of an eyesore.
But there’s good news if this is the situation for your Cincinnati home – we’re here to help.
Why Invest in Chimney Repointing?
Repointing (or tuckpointing) dates back to England in the late 18th century. It was the process of filling in and smoothing out the gaps and holes in a homeowner’s mortar joints, so that the structure looked square and finished – rather than worn and torn apart.
Nowadays, we do something similar. Our method is to dig the damaged mortar joints out to about a ¾-inch depth, then fill it with new mortar that’s dyed to match the old.
Now, the dyeing process is what really sets the amateurs apart from the professionals. If raw and undyed mortar is used, it will be far too white and won’t look good. On this same note, if the new mortar doesn’t match up with the old very well, this will lead to unsightly results too. Finding a complementary color range takes time, practice, and patience, but it’s a job we’ve done numerous times and are well-equipped for.
Getting the composition just right is imperative too, as the mortar joints play a significant role in keeping water out of your bricks. Needless to say, trusting an experienced tech is a must. If you need repointing services in Cincinnati, there’s only one team to call – that’s us.
