Tuckpointing Croxley Green

Exactly What is Tuckpointing? A restoration method that can be used on old and battered brickwork where the mortar joints are crumbling and unstable, tuckpointing (or tuck-pointing) can be very beneficial. The cosmetic look of walls can be enhanced with this technique, giving the impression that they are in much better condition than they actually are, and giving an illusion of perfectly-formed brickwork.

Firstly, the crumbling, old mortar is raked out, and this is then replaced with a new colour-matched mortar mixture which replicates the colour of the brick or stone in the wall. A narrow contrasting line of mortar is then applied to give the impression that the joints are tidy and neat, where in fact the joints may be irregular in width.

In particular when viewed from a distance, the outcome of tuckpointing can be quite impressive, and without doing any major works, can substantially enhance the overall appearance of a wall.
