Now the messy work begins as the old, crumbling mortar is taken out by raking and scraping out the joints. This painstaking process takes time because the joints need to have all the dust, debris and old mortar removed in order to supply a good bonding area for the application of new mortar.

The process involves removing the old, crumbling mortar and replacing it with a new mortar mix that is colour-matched to the stone or brick that constitutes the wall. Then to make it look like the joints are tidy and neat, where in fact the joints are actually wide and irregular, a narrow contrasting strip of mortar is "tucked" in.

Avoiding the need for any disruptive renovations, tuckpointing can dramatically enhance the overall appearance of a wall, and can be rather eye-catching, particularly when seen from a distance. You can also get tuckpointing done in Penwortham Lane, Bamber Bridge, New Longton, Whitestake, Whittle-le-Woods, Leyland, Midge Hall, Buckshaw Village, Tardy Gate, Clayton-le-Woods, Farington Moss, Howick Cross, and in Farington, Lancashire.
