Tuckpointing is the replacement of mortar that is old, damaged or has been depreciated over time. Brick, stone, and other masonry elements may last a lifetime, but the mortar has a shorter lifespan. Mortar is a paste that adheres these products together and once damaged must be replaced to prevent further deterioration to a building. Proper tuckpointing is crucial in the business of masonry restoration and the highly-skilled craftsmen at Advanced Masonry Restoration have had over 50 years to perfect this process. Each craftsman is trained through the Bricklayers & Allied Craftworkers training center apprenticeship program; offering the highest quality education in the masonry trowel trades.
