What Is Tuckpointing & When Do I Need It?

Do you know those cracks in the mortar that sits between the brick of your fireplace or chimney? How about the holes, discoloration, gaps, and receding joints? This type of masonry damage can occur as a result of weather, age, house-settling, and other factors. However,  the real concern is not just the awful look of deteriorating masonry, but the danger of it.

Mortar joints are designed to be packed tight and to strengthen the fireplace and chimney by protecting the brick from all the pressure. When damage occurs to the joints, the entire structure is weakened and unnecessary pressure is placed on the brickwork. Not only that, but damaged mortar joints are susceptible to leaks, which can cause damage to your home. If you notice this type of damage on your brick fireplace or chimney, ask the Sootmaster about tuckpointing.

Tuckpointing is sometimes called repointing or simply, pointing.  What it describes is the very delicate practice of grinding out old mortar joints and tucking fresh mortar into these joints.

When we’re called to perform tuckpointing work, we assess the age of the house and the location to determine the original mortar. Next, we match the new and original mortar to ensure a secure and pleasing end result. Once the damaged mortar is ground out, we use our tools and techniques to leave your chimney stronger than before.
