    It is certainly a privilege when you have a brick wall or chimney in your house. A brick structure provides a strong fortification to any house or building, but this does not mean that they don’t need some TLC. Just like any other parts of your house, your brick structure needs maintenance. It will come a time that your wall will suffer damages because of the factors such as outdoor conditions, rainfall and extreme heat.

    It is true that bricks can withstand outdoor elements for a hundred years or even more. However, the mortar joints that bind the entire structure are prone to wear and tear. Within 25 years of its construction, damage may show because of outdoor conditions, like rainwater absorbing through the mortar or moisture causing the rock masonry to crumble are common to brick structures.

    We have it all covered here at Tuckpointing Sydney.

    Warning Signs for Repairs

    Listed below are some of the things that you need to look out for. When any of these shows, seek the advice of professional brick pointers.

    You must keep in mind that only some parts of a brick structure require repointing or tuckpointing. Corollary to this, the colour of the new mortar must match the original mortar joints. Failure to do so will leave the two bricks looking mismatched, and this can be an awful sight to you and to passers-by.

    With this said, it is important that you also use the appropriate type of mortar. In choosing the quality of the mortar for the restoration, it needs to be of the same strength or a little less strong than the original mortar. Otherwise, it will not allow the mortar to stick to the structure. Comparing the quality of mortar is best left to a professional brick pointer like Tuckpointing Sydney.

    FAQs

    Tuckpointing is needed to preserve the structural strength and aesthetics of your house or building. It is important to keep in mind that tuckpointing is only needed every 25-30 years depending on where you live and on what the weather conditions are in a year. Structures built in areas with heavy rainfall, high humidity, and other harsh outdoor conditions may need tuckpointing more often.
    Tuckpointing works by filling the gaps between mortar and brick on masonry chimneys and walls. To do this, a colour-coordinated paint of the mortar is applied to match the brick, producing the illusion of fine joints on the wall.
    For as long as the temperature is between 40 and 90 degrees Fahrenheit within 24 hours to 72 hours, it is okay to perform tuckpointing.
    This is a job fit for the experts as when the deteriorated mortar in the joints between the bricks is replaced. It is more than a simple repaint job so brick pointers like Tuckpointing Sydney are needed.
    Before answering this, recall how the wall or chimney was installed. You must make sure that the proper mix of cement or sand is observed. If done right, tuckpointing can last for about 30 years.

    To contrast it with repointing, homeowners creates a clearer illusion. The reason behind this is that the mortar matches the colour of the bricks, making the entire wall look as if it was recently built.

    Repointing, on the other hand, has a softer illusion on the new mortar joints, but the corners of the bricks won’t be shaped into squares, and the mortar joints highlight the discrepancies more obviously.

    Our professionals at Tuckpointing Sydney are always ready to take on any challenge. Moreover, they specialise in brick sealing, repairs and repointing using quality products and employing modern techniques to repair or replace structural damage to brickwork.
