BRUNO CONSTRUCTION Tuckpointing & Masonry Specialists
We recommend grinding out masonry joints prior to tuckpointing in order to prolong the life of the tuckpointing. Typically to a depth of 3/4".
Grinding can be done using mechanical grinders.
BRUNO CONSTRUCTION Tuckpointing and Masonry always recommends grinding to be done on high rises in order to prolong the life of the tuckpointing. It is a process to place a scaffold stage on a tall building. Once the stage is there we recommend you take advantage of it and do as many repairs as possible. Dust must be controlled while grinding is done. Vacuums connected to mechanical grinders is recommended.
BRUNO CONSTRUCTION recommends grinding to be done on apartment buildings and condominium buildings. Grinding allows more mortar to be placed, which can prolong the life of the tuckpointing. The owners and tenants of buildings will appreciate that work will not need to be done as often on a building.
