Bringing your brickwork back to life
Tuckpointing is a specialised form of brick restoration. In a method of using two contrasting colours of mortar in the joints between brickwork, it achieves an artificial impression that very fine joints have been made. Tuckpointing hides all of the bricks imperfections, it is aesthetically pleasing and it adds value to your home.
Brick repointing is the process of repairing and replacing the old mortar which has been damaged over time due to Australia’s harsh weather conditions. With our dust extraction system we remove the original mortar and inject new mortar with our mortar injection system to suit the clients needs. All new mortar is colour matched to the original and finished with a flush, round joint, raked or struck finish and then hand acid washed to complete the transformation. We also specialise in crack repairs.
