Everything has an art to it, and construction and restoration projects are no exception. In the world of construction and restoration, tuckpointing service is not a new art but is becoming increasingly popular for its significant effect on brick surfaces. Tuckpointing is a fairly simple process that can add beauty to a home’s bricks at a relatively low cost. The process does require some training to master the right colors and joints, but overall the work is quite easy to do.
Match up the shapes
To match the mortar color, a tuckpointing technician adds dyes and pigments to new mortar. This creates a hyper-realistic look. During the matching process, the technician will spend as much time as necessary to find the right color mortar. This is the most important step in tuckpointing because it creates a base for crisp lines.
Contrast is a great way to make something stand out
Tuckpointing involves applying a continuous strip of contrasting mortar, which runs over the joints between bricks or stone slabs. Coursing mortar joints are often used on brick walls, but can also be used on floors. When this step is done well, the lines created by contrasting mortar should appear even and regular.
