Tuckpointing
Service
Akron, OH

Tuckpointing’s goal is to give the impression that the joints are in good condition by using two contrasting mortar colors in the joints between the bricks. Before applying new joints, the old ones must be removed to provide a clean layer. In most cases, well-built masonry walls require tuckpointing even every 15-20 years (due to weather conditions in Akron).

Why Need Tuckpointing?

Solid bricks and solid mortar will improve the look of your home by eliminating leaks, sketches and temperature loss, saving you money in the future.
Bricks, stones and ash blocks can loosen as the mortar begins to weaken and sprinkle.
When this happens, some kind of wall repair will be required to ensure structural security.

Knowing When to Get Tuckpointing

A well-built lasts 10-20 years before showing any visible signs of deterioration.

Contacting licensed masonry contractors at Akron Brick Repair is extremely important for evaluating the condition of your building.

Our expert technicians will arrive with the appropriate tools and note the information required when the stretching mark is required:

  • Crumbling of joints (when you rake your finger from the joints and when the mortar falls)
  • Mortar piles up or explodes on the ground
  • Misalignment of joints
  • Missing or loose mortar joints
  • Water damage and leakage in the interior of your home
  • Wall curvature

Slag and Discrete Surface Concrete Blocks Tuckpointing

In Akron buildings, masonry walls can include an average number of hairline cracks around blocks. Often inexperienced contractors will say that hairline cracks are nothing to worry about. However, in reality, small cracks are worse than large cracks, because hairline cracks absorb water.

To prevent the development of any such crucial cracks on your expensive walls of concrete blocks, homeowners should seek professional tuckpointing at the right time. Waterproofing structure prevents water from entering the floor, window, wood boards, power outlets, and connecting boxes. If the water enters, it will flow along a smooth surface like a pipe.

We recommend constantly searching for watermarks (dark mold around walls and ceiling corners) in cabinets, laundries, and low basement areas.

Areas, where beams and columns enter the supporting outer walls, are usually the first area affected. Because water can be absorbed by the wooden joints of the building’s wall.
Akron Brick Repair contractors repair slag block wall leaks and can fix all split-faced concrete blocks by finding the most effective tuckpointing, waterproofing and sealing coating solutions.

Chimney Tuckpointing

Chimneys are usually the most air-exposed part of houses.

The chimneys are higher than other parts of the house and are exposed to all weather conditions (i.e. excessive sun, wind and heavy rain, snow, and ice).

All of these play an important role in the rapid deterioration of chimney masonry structures.

When water enters from the brick or stone in the chimney, it damages the interior walls (drywall/ plaster, paint, and wood veneers) costly. Most homeowners don’t realize they need tuckpointing until they notice the water inlet of their chimneys.
