Tuckpointing Ringwood

What is Tuck Pointing? Tuckpointing (or tuck-pointing) is a method of repointing old and dilapidated brickwork where the mortar is unstable and crumbling. It is a technique that's used to aesthetically improve the appearance of walls to give the impression that they are in perfect condition.

Firstly, the old, crumbling mortar is raked out and removed, and this is then replaced with a new colour-matched mortar mixture which replicates the colour of the brick or stone in the wall. Next, a narrow, contrasting strip of mortar is applied, to make it seem like the joints are neat and tidy, where they previously looked like they were irregular in width.

The outcome of tuckpointing can be quite eye-catching, especially when viewed from afar, and can dramatically improve the overall appearance of a wall without the need for disruptive renovations. (Tags: Tuckpointing Ringwood, Tuck-Pointing Ringwood, Tuck Pointing Mortar Ringwood).
