Northfield, Il Tuckpointing Photos
Northfield, Il 60063 – Tuckpointing – Before
Here is a brick wall in the Northfield, Il area where we had completed a tuckpointing project. This brick wall was in good structural shape however much of the original mortar along the bottom had washed out over the years due to natural erosion and weathering. We were hired to complete a tuckpointing project to fill in the missing mortar. We can see that the middle area is in particularly bad shape by the dark lines around the brick indicating that there is no mortar in between these areas. Our tuckpointing project will address these trouble spots and fill in the necessary mortar to make sure that this brick wall stays in great shape for several more years.
Northfield, Il 60063 – Tuckpointing – During
This is our Northfield area tuckpointing project as seen in several stages of completion. The left most layers had not yet received any tuckpointing and are completely bare and un-repaired. The middle area of the bottom has had an initial layer or mortar applied to it however it has not yet been shaped, smoothed, or cleaned off. The bottom right area closest to the photo taker has gone through the entire tuckpointing process. We can see evidence of the tuckpointing work by the fresh, thicker and darker mortar joints between the bricks and by the clean and uniform finish that we achieved by shaping and removing all of the excess mortar. When our tuckpointing project is complete the remaining areas along the bottom will all match this bottom right area as we work our way to the left first applying mortar and then smoothing it out.

In this photo our tuckpointing specialist is applying the initial coating of mortar to the final area of this Northfield area brick wall. We can see that the lower few right-hand courses of bricks have already had mortar applied to them as evidenced by the thicker coloring around their joint lines whereas the most of the courses on the left still barely have any mortar at all. To complete our tuckpointing project we will go through and apply the initial mortar to all of these remaining areas and will then clean up the area by shaping and removing any excess mortar.

This is another tuckpointing project that we completed in the Northfield, Il area. We can see on the left that this beautiful decorative brick wall is starting to deteriorate as evidenced by large vertical crack as well as the depleted and uneven mortar surrounding the bricks. In order to repair this brick wall we were hired to complete a tuckpointing project. We started by grinding down the remaining old debris and mortar and then applied and shaped new mortar. After washing away excess mortar our tuckpointing project was completed. We can see the results of our tuckpointing in the photo on the right. All of the cracks on this brick wall have been filled in and there is now a smooth and consistent layer of mortar keeping this entire area together.

Our Northfield area clients were very pleased with our work and this area should stay in great shape for years to come.
