We offer tuck pointing services for brick homes. There are times when you will need to have the mortar between bricks replaced to keep your home safe from the elements. Although the process of tuckpointing can require a lot of time, it is often necessary extremely important because mortar joints strongly influence the longevity of your brick exterior. While the bricks on your home may last hundreds of years, the mortar itself may only last 25 years. It's for this reason that mortar joints often need to be redone. Tuck-pointing (also called repointing) will help your walls resist water penetration and can also improve the aesthetic aspect of your home and increase the actual value too.
