Mortar that has decayed or broken down exposes the brick in the masonry to develop cracks and wide gaps. These can cause significant leaks and water damage problems and reduce the lasting of masonry construction. However, if the mortar can be maintained through repointing or tuckpointing, the bricks in the masonry can last for quite long. The process of removing and replacing damaged mortar joints on brickwork is known as repointing. Tuckpointing is similar, but it isn’t always done for damage control. An important distinction to make is that tuckpointing, by definition, is a technique that uses two different colours of mortar to change the appearance of mortar joints. Due to our wet conditions and rainy climate, tuckpointing is critical for maintaining strong brickwork in Seattle. We can safely cut out, repair, and repoint all types of deteriorating masonry, restoring it to its former glory. Please contact us for a free estimate.
A fireplace is a beautiful addition to the appearance of the house. But the chimney is out of sight and thus often out of mind. Many property owners are often unaware that the masonry on their chimney will need to be repaired at some point.Weather conditions can be severe, causing mortar joints between masonry to deteriorate. Excess moisture can enter the chimney system and cause additional problems as the mortar deteriorates. If the chimney is not repaired, it may eventually begin to lean or collapse. Our chimney professionals at BrickSmith Masonry will answer all questions about your chimney and repair them if required.
Masonry is often considered permanent but that is also subject to deterioration, especially the mortar joints. Tuckpointing is the process of removing deteriorated mortar joints from a crumbling masonry wall and replacing it with new mortar to maintain its physical integrity.
