Tuck-pointing restores the masonry mortar joints between your bricks to prevent water intrusion or structural compromise while also improving the overall integrity and value of your chimney. Essentially, tuck-pointing is the removal and replacement of mortar between stone, block, or brick. Our team will replace your existing, deteriorated mortar, with new mortar to match the original texture and color as closely as possible. When done proficiently, tuck-pointing will provide your chimney with a strong joint that will be able to resist water damage. This will in turn, extend the life of your chimney, and help you avoid future chimney repairs.
At BM International, we have extensive experience with tuck-pointing chimney structures in historic buildings, where centuries of water and excessive heat have combined to complete serious damage on the integrity of the brick.
