TUCKPOINTING

Tuckpointing

To prevent water damage to masonry work, tuckpointing is necessary. Most masonry damage is a result of worn mortar joints: as the mortar is worn away, water and contaminants are able to seep in, causing further damage to the mortar and bricks. Tuckpointing is the process of repairing this damage.

Think of tuckpointing like filling a dental cavity. If left untreated, the tooth decay worsens and grows. By filling this cavity, further decay is prevented and the tooth is no longer able to be compromised. Tuckpointing is similar to filling ‘cavities’ in the mortar of masonry work.

Masonry is quite durable, but not impervious. Tuckpointing is required at least every twenty-five years to protect bricks from water damage. Some signs that you may need tuckpointing include the appearance of cracks and holes in the mortar, or what looks like a white substance on its surface.

Effective tuckpointing requires the work of experienced professionals. At best, a clumsy tuckpointing job will make your masonry look uneven and ugly; at worst it could lead to further damage by leaving unwanted cracks in the mortar. Don’t do it alone.

    review rating 5  I just had a complete roof replacement done by Matt Zielinski and his team following an unfortunate lightning strike. It was a pleasure to work with Matt. He was prompt, professional, knowledgeable and trustworthy. He did everything he promised and went the extra mile to make sure my property and home were taken care of during the process. The team he sent to do the work was also prompt, careful and cleaned up each evening before leaving. They arrived early and stayed late to complete a week long project. I will highly recommend Matt and his team to my family, friends and associates.

    review rating 5  After numerous attempts to get our roof issues resolved, we were so fortunate to stumble upon the Lifetime Roofing team. They knew just by looking at our home what needed to be done. We are so pleased with their expertise, experience and professionalism, particularly with an old South City house. Shout out to Doug and Chris for dealing with me! You made a not so fun event easy.....thank you so much
