Tuckpointing Chandler's Ford

Where stone and brickwork is old or battered, tuck pointing is a process for repointing unstable and crumbling mortar. It is an approach that is employed to cosmetically accentuate the appearance of walls to give the illusion that they're in perfect condition.

This practice involves raking out the crumbling, old mortar and replacing it with a mortar mixture that is colour-blended with the stone or brick that makes up the wall. Next, a contrasting, narrow strip of (usually lighter) mortar is applied, to make it seem like the joints are neat and even, where they previously appreared to be wide and irregular in width.

Avoiding the need for any disruptive renovations, tuckpointing can dramatically enhance the overall appearance of a wall, and can be rather impressive, particularly when observed from a distance. You can also get tuckpointing done in Compton, Eastleigh, Bishopstoke, Brambridge, Fishers Pond, Otterbourne, Highbridge, North Baddesley, Horton Heath, Braishfield, Colden Common, Hursley, Ampfield, Chilworth, Lordswood, Twyford, Romsey, and in Chandler's Ford itself.
