Tuckpointing and Brick Repair

Tuckpointing is a method used to replace mortar bond that has eroded over time. Mortar is a mixture of lime or cement with a combination of both sand and water. It plays a vital role in construction by acting as a bonding agent between bricks, blocks or stones. Mortar seals any irregular gaps between your masonry units to keep the elements out of your home. Mortar can also be used for decorative purposes, by adding colours or patterns in masonry walls.
