Tuck Pointing is the most elaborate of the forms of brick restoration. Tuck pointing is the process of utilising two contrasting colours of mortar within the mortar joints in order to create the visual effect that very fine joints have been made. The signature white pin stripe of a tuck pointed heritage home creates that luxe effect that many home owners are seeking. Want to know more or discuss if a tuck point is right for your home?

Over time weathering and decay can cause small voids to form in the mortar joints between bricks or other masonry units. These voids can allow the entrance of water within the brick wall which in turn can cause further damage to the integrity of the structure. Brick pointing or Repointing is the process in which a brick mason removes a percentage of the existing mortar before renewing the pointing by replacing it with new mortar.

Stone pointing is the oldest of the masonry trades and with stone being a prominent design feature on the exterior of many houses in Newcastle and Sydney it is key to us that our Stone mason's work is completed with a level of integrity that compliments this ancient art. Stone pointing follows the same principals of brick pointing or repointing. Over time weathering and decay can cause small voids to form in the mortar joints between each unit of stone. This unfortunately can damage the integrity of the structure through the entrance of water within the voids. Stone pointing is the process of removing a portion of the preexisting mortar before repointing the joints to not only enhance the structures integrity but also the overall appeal of the stonework. This service, especially when paired with Tuck Pointing, can enhance a building's renovation through adding architectural integrity to the exterior facade.
