The joints are now raked out to take away the old, crumbling mortar and clean the spaces between the bricks. This is a time consuming stage and involves the grinding or chipping away of old mortar and brushing away all the dust and loose debris to provide a good platform onto which to apply the new mortar. Any doors and windows will be paid extra care by the repointers to avoid any excess applications of mortar or distortions of the frames which could cause problems in their closing and opening.

One thing that must be avoided is the new mortar drying out too rapidly, and this can be averted by dampening down the brickwork.

Tuck Pointing Haddenham

What is Tuckpointing? Tuckpointing (or tuck-pointing) is a procedure for repointing old and weathered brick or stonework where the mortar is crumbling and unstable. It's an approach that is used to aesthetically improve the look of walls to give the illusion that they're in good shape.

The old, crumbling mortar will be raked out and replaced with a new mixture that is colour-matched to the stone or brick in the wall. Then to make it appear like the joints are neat and tidy, where in fact the joints are actually irregular in width, a narrow contrasting line of mortar is "tucked" in.

Avoiding the requirement for any disruptive renovations, tuckpointing can dramatically enhance the visual appearance of a wall, and can be rather effective, especially when seen from afar.
