With brick homes, tuckpointing becomes a maintenance procedure when mortar joints have cracked, eroded and weathered. The damage can be due to changing temperatures, chronic water saturation from wind-driven rain, defects in the roof system, and deicing salts. Usually all mortar begins to decay long before the brick itself. Defective mortar joints allow water to infiltrate the wall cavities, which can cause interior damage to your property. American Highland Roofing & Construction can help you repair these joints with a process that will not only ensure a watertight seal, but greatly improve the curb appeal of your home.
The process includes grinding, tuck-pointing with color-matched mortar of your choice, and full replacement of damaged brick.
