The Importance of Tuckpointing

Comtrea Tuckpointing (2)

Over time, the mortar in brick joints naturally cracks and deteriorates leaving mortar joints weakened and open.  This not only detracts from the aesthetics of your building, but it detracts from the structural integrity of it as well.   Staat Inc., takes great care in repairing your building when tuckpointing repairs are needed.  We follow all the necessary procedures, cutting no corners, bringing you the highest quality of work; prepping all joints, rinsing them of excess dust, reinstalling mortar of the appropriate type and color, tooling the mortar to give it the perfect appearance, and finally chemically cleaning the tuckpointing with the appropriate product to give it a fresh, bright appearance.
