Tuckpointing is a special technique used in masonry repair to restore deteriorated mortar joints that plagued rock structures. With time mortar can become compromised due to age-related wear, the outdoor elements, and weathering, leading to cracks, crumbling, or otherwise weakened areas of your home. With tuckpointing, the damage is alleviated to restore full function and beauty to the rock.

Tuckpointing rock begins with assessing the level of deterioration and detecting areas of concern to plan an effective tuckpointing solution that remedies the damage for a fresh and functional new look. Our comprehensive approach leaves no stone unturned, ensuring every component of the tuckpointing service is handled with the utmost care and diligence for lasting results.
The Tuckpointing Process
Following a meticulous tuckpointing process, our tuckpointing services include the following key steps:
- Assess the damage

- Apply the new mortar and tool it until it’s compact

A derivative of traditional rock-and-mortar tuckpointing, cement tuckpointing uses a similar process, with the difference being we apply a cement-based mortar rather than the usual lime-based mortar. Cement tuckpointing boasts incredible durability and is an excellent option for homes exposed to harsh weather conditions and increased exposure to the elements.
When To Pursue Tuckpointing
The frequency in which you should pursue tuckpointing services will depend on several factors, such as the quality of the initial installation, how much exposure the mortar has to harsh elements and inclement weather, and how well your mortar is maintained. To ensure your mortar is in good shape, we recommend having your mortar inspected and examined for signs of deterioration.
How Long Does Tuckpointing Take to Cure?
Tuckpointing cure time varies as the weather, thickness of the joints, and the type of mortar selected all play a role. On average, tuckpointing takes between 24 to 48 hours to cure, but over the course of a couple of weeks, the mortar will continue setting and strengthening. To facilitate the curing process, the area should be protected from moisture.
The Benefits of Tuckpointing
Tuckpointing is a vital part of masonry maintenance, boasting a wealth of benefits, including the following:
- Enhance the structural integrity of your masonry
