What is Tuckpointing?
While brick can last centuries, mortar tends to deteriorate over time, only having a lifespan of around 25-30 years. This means the material must be maintained, or your brick structure will eventually weaken and crumble. Tuckpointing is the process of removing the old, deteriorated mortar joints and filling in the gaps between the brickwork with new mortar. This preserves the structural integrity of the building without actually having to replace any bricks. If you want to maintain the value and appearance of your brick building, tuckpointing is the best way to do so.
