Ask Us About Tuckpointing
Tuckpointing is a process of repairing mortar between masonry by replacing it with matching grout for structural & visual preservation of older buildings.
Tuckpointing is needed when the mortar joints deteriorate, crack, or show gaps due to age, weather, or water is leaking into the house from the chimney. Other signs include visible cracks or gaps in the mortar, crumbling or flaking mortar, or water stains on interior walls. Prompt repair is necessary to prevent further damage to the structure and maintain its integrity.
Tuckpointing costs vary based on project size, masonry material, and location. The mean cost of a full brick chimney restoration is $3500. Get a quote from Twisted Brick for an accurate estimate.
The lifespan of tuckpointing varies from 25+ years depending on the quality of work, materials used, and weather exposure. Regular maintenance can help prolong its lifespan.
The perfect time to get your chimney tuckpointing done is right before your roof is replaced or repaired. That way your old roof is in the construction zone, not your brand-new, clean roof.
