What is Tuckpointing? A restoration procedure which can be used on old and deteriorating brick or stonework where the mortar joints are unstable and crumbling, tuckpointing can be extremely beneficial. The aesthetic appearance of walls can be enhanced with this approach, giving the impression that they are in much better condition than they really are, and giving an illusion of perfectly-formed brickwork.

First of all, the crumbling, old mortar is raked out and removed, and this is then replaced with a new coloured mortar which matches the colour of the wall. Then to give the appearance that the joints are even and neat, where in fact the joints are actually wide and irregular in width, a thin contrasting line of (usually lighter) mortar is applied.

Once done, tuck-pointing can be quite effective, and can dramatically enhance the overall appearance of a wall without the requirement for disruptive renovations, in particular when seen from afar.
