Tuckpointing in Chicago | Prime Masonry Contractors
Prime Masonry’s qualified masonry contractors can restore your masonry to its original splendor with skilled tuckpointing in Chicago. Tuckpointing is the method of repairing masonry and brickwork when the bricks’ mortar starts to wear and fall out. There are several reasons for this. The building’s age is a significant factor; sun and harsh Chicago weather conditions also play a role in deteriorating mortar. If your masonry is compromised, it can lead to interior damage of your building as water and moisture can seep through your facade and damage the foundation and internal structure. Qualified contractors from Prime Masonry can assess the damage and give you an idea of how much masonry restoration is needed to save your exterior masonry. Tuckpointing is the art of matching the new mortars with the same color and style of the original material. This is then tucked carefully in-between the masonry brickwork to look authentic as it looked years before.
