Our Retaining Wall Service Process

Step 1:

When tuckpointing, the first step is always to take out the existing mortar joints to a depth of about an inch. We usually use an angle grinder to do this, since it is less time consuming than using a hammer and chisel.

Step 2:

Using a masonry brush, we remove the dust and debris from the ground-out mortar joints. If the dust is too thick, we use a high-pressure air nozzle to do the job.

Step 3:

Once the ground-out mortar joints are already clean, we mix the new mortar to make sure it matches the existing color of the brick.

Step 4:

Once the mortar is ready, we begin to fill the joints with the new mortar. In doing this, we start with the horizontal joints first.

Step 5:

After applying the mortar to the joints, we smooth it to achieve a flat-looking surface. Depending on your request, we may also give it a slightly indented look.

Step 6:

When the new mortar starts to harden, we use a straightedge and a tuckpointing tool to make straight lines in the center of the joints. To make it look neat, we make sure that the lines we make are as straight as possible.

Tuckpointing FAQs (click to expand)

Tuckpointing is a masonry pointing style that involves using two different colors of mortar to change the appearance of mortar joints. Its process includes removing a part of the deteriorated mortar, filling the joints with new mortar, and then applying a thin line of putty in a contrasting color right down the center of the joint.

Tuckpointing presents a range of aesthetic and functional benefits. While its most common use is to cosmetically enhance the appearance of masonry, it also help keep worn bricks from deteriorating.

While tuckpointing and repointing are often used interchangeably as they both involve adding new mortar joints to a brick structure, they are two different methods. Repointing refers to the actual process of taking out damaged mortar joints and renewing them. Unlike repointing that is usually done for damage control, tuckpointing is more of a cosmetic process, a style that involves the use of two different colors of mortar to alter the appearance of mortar joints.

Tuckpointing usually lasts for 25 to 30 years, depending on the region where you live. If you live in an area with heavy rainfall and high humidity levels, you may need to tuckpoint more often.
