Des Plaines, Il Tuckpointing Description
We have been offering Des Plaines residents and businesses our professional tuckpointing services since 1987. Tuckpointing is a brick, stone, mortar, and concrete repair process in which these areas are grinded down to remove loose dirt and debris to make space for the installation of new materials in their place. During the tuckpointing process new mortar and concrete is installed in the necessary areas and fills in the cracks and depleted spots around damaged mortar, brick, concrete, and stone areas. Tuckpointing will improve the external appearance of brick, stone, mortar, and concrete and it will also structurally strengthen these materials by improving the bonds along their joint lines. Homes and businesses in Des Plaines are frequently constructed with these materials and tuckpointing projects help make sure that these properties remain in the best shape possible.

Des Plaines, Il 60016 60018 – Tuckpointing – Before
This is a tuckpointing project we completed on a wall in the Des Plaines, Il area. This beautiful red brick and white mortar wall had been originally very well built however over the years normal use, natural weathering, and water and ice melting and run off has worn away the mortar around the bricks right around the concrete steps. In order to fill in these missing mortar areas a tuckpointing project will be necessary. In order to complete our tuckpointing process we will first have to grind out all of the old mortar and debris to make space in order to apply new mortar. In order to give these bricks a consistent look we will perform the tuckpointing procedure on this entire brick wall on this Des Plaines area home.
Des Plaines, Il 60016 60018 – Tuckpointing – After
This is the completed Des Plaines are tuckpointing project that we completed. We secured the surrounding steps to prevent any staining or damage and we have finished grinding away all of the loose mortar in preparation for the tuckpointing work. In this photo we see the contrast between the tuckpointed and non-tuckpointed areas. The area on the bottom has gone through the tuckpointing process and new mortar has been fully installed and shaped around all of the existing bricks. We see that the new mortar is smooth and evenly applied and has a nice grey look. The bricks on the top still have to be completed but once we finish tuckpointing that area and let the new mortar dry this Des Plaines area brick wall will have a great, fresh new look.

This is another tuckpointing project that we completed in the Des Plaines area. The bricks on the left have been grinded down and we are currently applying new mortar to complete the tuckpointing process. The bricks and whiter mortar on the right have already gone through the tuckpointing process and the new mortar has already set and hardened. We see that the areas which have already been tuckpointed have a strong, smooth, consistent appearance and that the new mortar has cemented around the surrounding bricks very well. We are currently finishing up the tuckpointing process and once we are done this entire Des Plaines area brick wall will have a great new look and far stronger bonds.

This is another tuckpointing project that we completed in the Des Plaines area. The brick wall on this beautiful home had started to develop some cracks along certain brick and mortar joint lines and needed to go through a tuckpointing project. We were hired to tuckpoint the specific spots to prevent further damage. We started by grinding away all of the excess mortar and debris and then applied new mortar to complete the tuckpointing procedure. Tuckpointing this Des Plaines area brick wall helped prevent further damage, got rid of any unsightly cracks, and strengthened all the brick bonds on this wall.
