We have been in business as a family and working in the Northern Chicagoland area as well as the Northern and Western Suburbs and North Shore area since 1987.
Zbigniew Sterczynski or “Ziggy” and Filip Pindral are the owners of our firm, however three generations of our family help manage and work full-time in our business.
Our firm was started by Zbigniew Sterczynski and his son-in-law Robert Pindral in 1987. Robert and Zbigniew moved our family here from Poland the year before in order to start their new business here in the States. In Poland Zbigniew worked as a building engineer and also owned his own successful construction company while Robert did mechanical and electrical work. Robert’s technical know-how perfectly complemented Zbigniew’s experience running his own businesses and over the years the two of them as well as the rest of our family worked together to build a now growing and very successful business.
We are licensed and bonded and our entire firm including all of our workers are insured. We are also legally incorporated in the state of Illinois as Delta C. Construction Inc. and registered with Angie’s List, HomeAdvisor, and the Better Business Bureau. Delta C. Tuckpointing and Delta Tuckpointing are the division names we use to refer to this branch our of services.

Even though repointing and tuckpointing are words often used interchangeably, their results differ aesthetically. Repointing involves only the removal of old mortar joints and replacement with fresh mortar, without the applying contrasting colors in the center. This often results in a wavy appearance in the new mortar joints, instead of attractive illusion provided by tuckpointing.
Although bricks may last up to a century, mortar joints have life spans of only approximately 25 to 30 years. Considered the weakest spots of a brick or stone wall, mortars must be replaced once they begin to show signs of deterioration. If you observe water passing through missing mortar joints, get it checked by a masonry professional in order to to prevent potential moisture damage to the masonry. Your mortar joints might need repair if you can scratch off powdered residue from their surface.
Yes, in many cases we can create it, especially if you can share a clear picture with us to be sure.
Many repairs will take a day or even less and do not require you to be home nor to change your daily schedule. Nevertheless, large jobs will clearly take a bit longer and we will provide a timeline during the estimate process.
