Repointing or tuckpointing is a smart investment for anyone who might be having problems with their mortar flaking or crumbling. Throughout this process, the sweep will remove the old, damaged mortar, then put new mortar in. This is a time-consuming and intricate process, and it is important that the materials of the old mortar match up appropriately with the new. This ensures the color stays consistent, and that the structural integrity of the system will not be compromised.
When it comes to keeping water away from your brickwork and mortar, having a well-built crown is a must. Unfortunately, if it is worn down, it will not be able to function as efficiently, and you will likely notice water damage throughout your system before you know it. Our team is trained to repair, restore, or rebuild your crown, as necessary. Contact us today, so we can help you. Come fall, you won’t need to worry about a thing!
