Now the dusty work begins as the old mortar is removed by raking and cleaning out the joints. This is a time consuming stage and entails the grinding or chipping away of old mortar and brushing away any loose debris and dust to provide a clean surface for the application of new mortar. Any doors and windows will be paid extra care by the repointers to avoid any disturbances of the frames or having too much mortar applied which can lead to problems with their closing and opening.

When the joints are clean, the brickwork should be damped down to help stop the new mortar from drying out too rapidly and subsequently cracking.

Tuckpointing Hunstanton

Tuck pointing is a method of repointing old and battered brickwork where the mortar joints are unstable and crumbling. The aesthetic look of walls can be improved with this approach, giving the illusion that they are in far better condition than they really are, and giving the impression of perfectly-formed brickwork.

This process involves raking out the old, crumbling mortar and replacing it with a new mortar mix which is colour-blended with the brick or stone that constitutes the wall. Then to make it appear like the joints are even and neat, where in fact the joints are actually wide and irregular in width, a narrow contrasting strip of lighter mortar is "tucked" in.

Without the requirement for any disruptive renovations, the outcome of tuckpointing can be quite spectacular, particularly when seen from a distance, and can dramatically enhance the overall appearance of a wall. You should also be able to get tuckpointing done in North Creake, Shernborne, Dersingham, Great Bircham, Docking, Burnham Market, Sedgeford, Heacham, Thornham, Ringstead, Burnham Deepdale, Syderstone, Snettisham, Ingoldisthorpe, and in Hunstanton itself.
