Residential tuckpointing

Tuckpointing is a technique used to fill joints in masonry. This technique is used especially in brickworks to improve water penetration resistance. It is considered as one of the most effective and permanent way to decrease water entry into brickwork. In this way, the mortar joints and the materials used can have a lifespan of more than 25 years depending on the exposure conditions.

Tuckpointing is the repair and replacement of mortar between broken brick or stone walls and issues like this can lead to large looses of heat. Cracks, gaps, and crumbling mortar are signs that tuckpointing is needed. Paying close attention to detail, Interservice always delivers the best workmanship possible.

Commercial tuckpointing


When you hear the words commercial tuckpointing, it’s simply referring to the professional process that’s used to perform tuckpointing on an old or deteriorating building. This can be anything from homes to office buildings, old churches to factories. Regardless of the building, if it has brick that shows signs of wear and tear, it will need commercial tuckpointing.

The problem is that commercial tuckpointing is a meticulous job that shouldn’t be tackled as a DIY project on the weekend. It requires a lot of experience, skill, and patience. The process involves going in and scraping out any old, unsound mortar and replacing it with new mortar. This reinforces the integrity of a building and also helps increase the overall aesthetics.
