TUCKPOINTING SERVICES IN TORONTO AND THE GREATER TORONTO AREA
At Bricktown Masonry, we offer tuckpointing services throughout Toronto and the Greater Toronto Area. We provide a finished product that not only looks good, but is functional to the structural integrity of any brick wall. There is no project too big or too small we can't handle. Whether it's replacing the mortar of an exterior wall or the restoration of a chimney, our company has experience doing it all. Contact us today to learn more about our tuckpointing services.
First, our team removes the existing mortar to ensure any new mortar applied between the joints has a strong bond. If damaged mortar is left behind, the structural integrity of the new mortar is compromised as it's bonding onto loose material and not the bricks themselves.
Once the affected area is cleared, we then begin to colour match the existing mortar with the new mortar. This will allow for a seamless tuckpointing process where you won't even be able to notice the difference between the original mortar and the repaired area.
When the correct mortar is selected, our crew of tuckpointing experts will begin filling in the joints until all the mortar is replaced. With our customer satisfaction guarantee, you'll be left with an excellent final results.
GOOD TO KNOW
HOW TO KNOW WHEN IT'S TIME FOR TUCKPOINTING
Figuring out if you need tuckpointing is easy if you know what to look for. All you need to do is look at your mortar joints around the different areas of a brick structure. If you find that any mortar has cracks, holes, is crumbling or is severely stained, it could indicate that it's time for tuckpointing.
CRACKED MORTAR JOINTS
Cracked mortar joints are the early signs of the wall's structural integrity being compromised. Although not in critical need of repair, you should solve the issue before it gets worse leading to a more costly repair.
BRICK REPAIRS OR MISSING MORTAR
If mortar is missing, then the structural integrity has completely been compromised and you should have your walls repaired immediately. Missing mortar also makes your house vulnerable to pests such as termites, spiders and other insects.
STAINS / DISCOLOURATION
Stains and discolouration could be the sign of water entering from a different location which is not easily visible and creating damage. With the right tools and expertise, the source of the water can be found which is oftentimes a compromised mortar joint. A quick tuckpointing repair can solve the issue to avoid any long-term damage.
