Tuckpointing Corfe Mullen

What Exactly is Tuckpointing? Tuck pointing is a procedure for repointing old and weathered brickwork where the mortar joints are crumbling and unstable. To give the impression that they are in good shape, it is an approach which is used to cosmetically accentuate the appearance of walls.

First of all, the old, crumbling mortar is raked out, and this is then replaced with a new colour-matched mortar mixture which replicates the colour of the stone or brick in the wall. A narrow contrasting line of (usually lighter) mortar is then "tucked" in to give the perception that the joints are even and neat, where in fact the joints are in fact wide and irregular.

In particular when observed from afar, the impact of tuck-pointing can be quite remarkable, and without undertaking any disruptive refurbishments, can vastly improve the overall appearance of a wall. You can also get tuckpointing done in Hillbutts, Oakley, Wimborne Minster, Ashington, Shapwick, Beacon Hill, Creekmoor, Canford Heath, Waterloo, Broadstone, Upton, Lytchett Minster, Lytchett Matravers, Sturminster Marshall, and and of course in Corfe Mullen.
