When you need mortar repair call Affordable Tuckpointing Pros. Mortar is the material that binds brick and stone. Years of weathering often cause mortar joints to deteriorate. When water is absorbed into mortar, it can freeze during the winter months expanding within the mortar and causing it to crumble. This allows brick and stone to loosen and crack.
TUCKPOINTING is the process of grinding out the old deteriorated mortar and replacing it with new mortar. This tuckpointing procedure is often needed at 25-year cycles but can also be used to address specific problem areas or cracks.
