Tuckpointing Chicago is a process of eliminating old, crumbling mortar and replacing it with more durable mortar. Typically, the new mortar is color-matched to the bricks and stones used in the original. The gaps are then filled and smoothed over. Tuckpointing Chicago can bring your home or business back to its former glory, adding a sense of history to an older building and improving its overall appearance.
Is it time to replace your chimney? Tuckpointing is the best way to ensure that your masonry will last for years. Rather than leaving flimsy mortar joints, tuckpointing involves removing and replacing the existing mortar with a new mortar mixture. Don’t risk having more damage occur by letting time pass. The sooner we take care of the damage, the longer it will hold up and look great!
