Our Tuckpointing Work Can Restore Your Masonry Chimney

 

Is your masonry chimney in sad shape? The good news is you may not need to fork out the money for a full rebuild. The team here at Black Moose Chimney & Stove specializes in masonry repairs and may be able to restore the look, safety, and structural strength of your chimney with our expert tuckpointing work.

What Is Tuckpointing & When Is It Needed?

When masonry joints are riddled with holes or cracks, or when the mortar is receding or crumbling, our experts can carefully remove the mortar and pack new mortar in its place. This is known as tuckpointing or repointing.

Before beginning the tuckpointing process, our team will consider the time your home was built and the makeup of your existing mortar and brick. Once we’ve carefully matched the new mortar in texture, color, and strength, we’ll use specialized tools to remove the damaged mortar. Next, we’ll carefully pack the joints with fresh mortar, being sure to protect the brick and provide a smooth, strong, clean surface.

Why Trust Tuckpointing To The Experts?

Tuckpointing should restore the look and strength of your masonry chimney, but not all tuckpointing work achieves that goal. Masonry composition has changed over the years, and if the new mortar isn’t matched to the existing mortar, the results will compromise the strength of the entire structure. You could also end up with mortar that doesn’t seamlessly blend with the color of your existing mortar, making your repairs more of an eye sore than a solution.
