Tuck Pointing

Also known as tuck pointing, tuckpointing, pointing, repointing, spot pointing, and brick chimney repair.

Every 15 or so year the mortar joints between the bricks may began to crack and loosen. Our tuck pointing services can repair the problem. Tuck pointing restores the masonry mortar joints between your bricks to eliminate water intrusion, prevent structural compromise, and restores the integrity & aesthetic value of your chimney.

Tuck pointing can be defined as the removal and replacement of mortar between stone, block, or brick. Absolute Home Improvements will replace the existing failing mortar with new mortar to match the original masonry texture and color as closely as possible. Once mortar has been placed within the joint, it is then tooled. When done properly, tuck pointing will provide a strong, water-resistant joint that will extend the life of your masonry chimney and prevent future brick chimney repair needs.

Penetrating moisture weakens the mortar that bonds the masonry units together; it also promotes premature deterioration of your brick causing brick chimney repair & tuck pointing needs. When moisture finds its way into a defect on the brick and freezes, it will cause the brick face tospall (fall off), deflect, or displace. Once this happens, your brick is rendered useless, as it offers no structural support to the masonry structure.
