What Is Tuckpointing And How Is It Beneficial?
Tuckpointing is a method of repairing damaged mortar joints in aging masonry walls. The tuckpointing process involves removing damaged mortar and filling any missing mortar in to spaces where the original mortar has fallen out, cracked, become damaged, or otherwise deteriorated. During the process, the color of the new mortar is matched as closely as possible with the color of the original mortar. Though a tedious process, tuckpointing offers many benefits for masonry walls showing significant damage and wear in their existing mortar.
