Now the dusty work will begin as the old mortar is taken out by raking and cleaning out the joints. This painstaking process takes time because the joints need to have all the dust, old mortar and debris removed so as to supply a good bonding area for the new mortar to be applied to.

Tuck Pointing Hartley Wintney

Tuckpointing is a procedure for repointing old and dilapidated brickwork where the mortar is crumbling and unstable. It is a technique which is employed to aesthetically augment the appearance of walls to give the illusion that they are in perfect condition.

All of the crumbling, old mortar is raked out and replaced with a new colour-matched mortar which is identical to the colour of the brick or stone out of which the wall is made. A narrow contrasting strip of (usually lighter) mortar is then inserted to make it appear like the joints are tidy and neat, where in fact the joints are in fact wide and irregular in width.

The outcome of tuck-pointing can be quite striking, particularly when seen from afar, and can dramatically enhance the overall look of a wall without the requirement for disruptive refurbishments. You should also be able to get tuckpointing done in Mattingley, Hook, Dipley, Riseley, Eversley, Yateley, Heckfield, Hazeley, Hartfordbridge, Nately Scures, Rotherwick, Stratfield Saye, Hazeley Heath, Hound Green, and in Hartley Wintney itself.
