Tuckpointing is where two contrasting colours of mortar are used in brickwork to give the impression of fine joints.
One colour will match the bricks and the other colour will be a contrasting colour (such as white or black). This contrasting colour will create a fine joint which gives an impression of perfectly gauged brickwork. In order to achieve this, the original mortar is removed before applying the two new mortars.
HOW MUCH IS IT? HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
Tuckpointing is the best way to restore a heritage building by replacing the old mortar which as deteriorated and decayed. We replacing it with new mortar, giving your house or building a fresh new look and restore it to its original integrity that increases its longevity. The cost of Tuckpoinging is measured and estimated usually by:
- The square meter of brick work
- Access to the location such as heights or safety requiremetns
- Any specific requirements such as window casings and features
- Type of Tuck pointing required.
