Tuckpointing is the process of repairing the mortar joints in brick or stone walls. Tuckpointing involves removing the old mortar to a fillable depth and replacing it with new mortar. Tuckpointing is labor intensive and varies in price, depending on the scale of the project.
Tuckpointing needs to be done when mortar begins to deteriorate. Over time, mortar becomes porous and chalky and can begin to crumble. If you can scrape powdery residue from the mortar joints with a sharp object, it may be time to tuckpoint your brickwork. Weakened or crumbling mortar allows moisture to get behind the stone or brickwork, causing damage to the surface behind it or the stonework to crumble.
Tuckpointing can save you money. If tuckpointing is done before real damage occurs to the stone or brick wall, it can save you from complete replacement. It is too late to tuckpoint if the stone or bricks are loose.
