Tuckpointing

We do our best to match the colour and style of the existing mortar 

We needed tuck pointing on the chimney and parts of the house. I found Rene on Home Stars and called him. We set up a time and he showed up at that time. We discussed scope of work and the next day we had a very reasonable quote. We had received some other quotes which were quite outrageous. We scheduled a date but because of the extreme rainy weather, the date had to be pushed back several times. However, Rene was very good in stay in touch regarding this. Finally Rene and Joe were able to do the work. They came on time, set right up and worked steady. When job was finished they cleaned up. My husband and I are very happy with the job and we would definitely hire Rene again in the future for any other brick type work.

How Tuckpointing Works

Tuckpointing, or repointing, refers to the process of repairing mortar joints in stone or brick masonry walls by grinding or chipping out the old mortar to a certain depth and then filling in with new mortar. Tuckpointing is labor-intensive.
When a house settles it causes stress cracks, which usually appear above or below windows and doors. When mortar is in a weakened condition, it causes moisture to break down the stone or brick masonry wall and possibly cause moisture problems behind it. It also keeps pests and critters out, as well as prevent your warm air in the winter and cool air in the summer from escaping, helping save you money on energy costs.
Additionally, I take care to match, to the best of my ability, the colour of the new mortar I install to your existing home so it doesn’t stand out. Because of this process, no job is identical in their preparation and the mixture I use is always custom to your home.
