Tuckpointing

Tuckpointing is the process of grinding out the old deteriorated mortar and replacing it with new mortar. Experience and craftsmanship are needed to insure materials match in color, consistency, aggregate size and mortar strength. Our employees are highly trained and experienced at this process and use specialized tools and equipment to safely remove the mortar without damage to the adjacent brick or stone.

John Doe

Business Owner

I chose to go with Affordable Tuckpointing Pros for the following reasons: they seemed to be the most knowledgeable, they certainly were among the most affordable, and they gave me the impression that they wanted the job more than anyone else.Knowledge – Of all the companies that came to look at my home, Affordable Tuckpointing Pros was the only one that addressed the fact that my chimney was not properly lined.  Actually, it was the ATP estimator that alerted me that my home had this problem; estimators from other companies never mentioned it.

When I asked others about the issue, I was told, “Sorry, we don’t do that chimney liners.”  My modest brick ranch was built in 1947 and has had little work done to it over the years.  The chimney was as it was originally constructed and was open to the elements.  Because of this, my chimney was slowly deteriorating on the inside.  ATP installed the proper size stainless steel chimney liner.  The draw of the gases from my gas furnace and hot water heater is now much stronger.  Rain and snow are no longer coming in.  And, during the winter, the warm vented air will no longer be condensing inside my chimney and causing unwanted moisture inside my chimney.Affordability – Yes, they live up to their name.  I got six written quotes and the range was surprisingly wide; ATP’s price fell in middle of the range.  When I took into consideration their knowledge about the chimney flue issue, I viewed ATP’s price as a bargain.

I learned long ago to beware of low-ball prices, but I’ve also learned that paying a higher price doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll be getting better or more.Customer Satisfaction – Unfortunately, a week or so later, upon closer examination, I spotted a few joints that I felt weren’t done properly.  The spots in question were minor and cosmetic.  I made one call and ATP responded quickly and corrected those minor problems to my complete satisfaction.Don’t take the word of a stranger on the internet.  Call around and get a bunch or quotes.  But, do yourself a favor and call Affordable Tuckpointing Pros first.  When you start contacting other companies, you’ll quickly see for yourself just how knowledgeable and thorough they are, as well as how reasonably priced they are, too.
