Lake Bluff, Il 60044 – Tuckpointing – Before

This is a tuckpointing project that we completed on a brick wall in the Lake Bluff, Il 60044 area. This brick wall was a great aesthetic addition to this Lake Bluff area home however over the years natural wear and tear and weather had led to the development of several cracks and holes along the mortar and joint lines. These Lake Bluff area homeowners hired us to complete a tuckpointing project to bring this brick wall back up to its full potential. As always we will begin our tuckpointing project by first grinding down the surrounding mortar and debris to remove all of the damaged materials and to make space for new mortar. We will then then apply new mortar as part of the tuckpointing process to seal up any holes or cracks. We see that this area has an ample amount of damage and our tuckpointing process will easily fix all of these spots.

We can see that the damaged areas and the mortar cracks and gaps have been completed removed due to the grinding. We applied a generous amount of mortar during the tuckpointing process to ensure that every hole has been sealed and we have smoothed and washed the area to give it an even and consistent appearance. Parts of the mortar are still drying however we can see that the tuckpointing has removed all of the unsightly damage that was present on this wall and it has also strengthened all the brick and mortar joints by adding a new layer of bonding between the bricks. This Lake Bluff area tuckpointing project was a great success in accomplishing the task of re-beautifying and repairing this brick wall and is a great example of our general Lake Bluff tuckpointing services.
