Tuckpointing

Tuckpointing is replacing the exterior layer of mortar between masonry units that has weathered or cracked.  Tuckpointing is necessary to strengthen a masonry wall and prevent water infiltration. Tuckpointing should be consider building maintenance.  

Grinding

Grinding is done in order to remove the defective mortar from a joint. Grinding should be done  to provide more room for new mortar to be put into the joint.  We recommend a 3/4" depth.  

Lintel Replacement

Lintels are the piece of steel directly above a window or door opening on a masonry wall.  Lintels need to be replaced due to rusting and bending, which causes the lintel to fail.  When there are step cracks at the corner of windows or the steel is bending, then these are sure signs the lintels need to be replaced.
