Tuckpointing Godstone

What is Tuck Pointing? Where stone and brickwork is old or weathered, tuck pointing is a procedure for repointing unstable and crumbling mortar. It is an approach that's employed to aesthetically improve the look of walls to give the illusion that they are in perfect condition.

The crumbling, old mortar is raked out and replaced with a new mix that's colour-matched to the stone or brick in the wall. Then a narrow line of lighter mortar which is contrasting in colour is "tucked" in, giving the impression that the formerly wide and untidy joints are neat and even.

In particular when seen from afar, the effect of tuck-pointing can be quite impressive, and without doing any disruptive renovations, can substantially enhance the overall appearance of a wall. (Tags: Tuckpointing Godstone, Tuckpointing Mortar Godstone, Tuck-Pointing Godstone).
