Grinding and tuckpointing your building in Cambridge MA gives you many benefits, including making the structure water tight, safe and even improves the look of the building. There are many different colors the joints may be. The colors range from, white to gray and yellow to red, and everything in between. We can always give you our recommendation as to what color to chose, but the final decision is always the clients. This is why prior to tuckpointing we always recommend to have the joints ground out to a certain depth, usually 3/4″ deep. During the grinding of the joints a lot of dust is produced, but not to worry, we always use special vacuums connected to our grinders that collect almost all the dust in order to prevent as much of a nuisance for you and your neighbors as possible.
Brick can last for centuries. This is just one of the reasons this building material is so beloved. But its natural durability doesn’t mean that brick doesn’t need some upkeep along the way to keep it performing well. After all, age isn’t the only thing working against brick. Fire, water, improper construction, and poor maintenance can also be to blame for deteriorating brick and mortar.
Repointing will fix the problem. This is the process of removing old mortar so we may replace it with new mortar. Do you have a brick chimney? Chimneys may need repointing too. Given its role in removing carbon monoxide from your home when you use your fireplace, it’s absolutely vital for this job to be done correctly. Our work with mortar often falls under the category of “tuckpointing,” which is essentially the practice of making brick and mortar look great.
Repointing or Tuck pointing Solutions in Cambridge MA
In Cambridge Massachusetts, masonry is found on nearly all homes and buildings to some extent. Masonry is often thought of as permanent and ever lasting, but over time will be subject to deterioration especially at the mortar joints. The method of repairing worn or damaged mortar joints is called repointing, and often referred to as tuck pointing.
This is done by grinding out the mortar joints with a grinder or chiseling them out with a hammer and chisel. The mortar joints are then filled with the appropriate mortar. Repointing brickwork is a job that needs skill in order to be performed correctly or it will not look very appealing. At Rod’s Masonry of Cambridge, we use specialty grinders that maintain a 95% dust free cutting of the mortar joints.
