Skokie, Il 60076 60077 – Tuckpointing Project 1
Here is a tuckpointing project that we completed in the Skokie, Il area. The mortar on this home was aging and had started to crumble and fall off, causing leaks, drafts, cracks and other problems for these homeowners. We were hired to repair these bricks. We began the tuckpointing process by grinding down the existing bricks and mortar and we can see the deep grooves and indents around the yet untuckpointed bricks on the left side of the picture. Our professional tuckpointing workman is working in the middle of the photo applying new mortar along the previously grinded joint lines. This is what the tuckpointing process consists of. On the right we see already tuckpointed bricks with new, thick mortar around them. The new mortar will still be prepped before completion and any loose debris will wash off completing the tuckpointing process on this brick wall.
Skokie, Il 60076 60077 – Tuckpointing Project 2
This is another tuckpointing project that we completed in the Skokie, Il area. This large brick wall’s mortar had eroded away through weathering and needed to be replaced by tuckpointing. Once again we ground the old mortar down to expose and gain access to the bare bricks themselves (as seen in the very thinly mortared bricks in the top and left-hand areas of the photograph) and then applied new mortar along these joint lines (as in the bottom and right-hand areas). Grinding down the old mortar removed all damage and debris from the brick wall and gave us a “blank slate” upon which to install new healthy mortar. At the moment the new mortar is still drying and settling in, however after it is cleaned and washed the excess mortar will run off and this brick wall with be structurally sound and will have a consistent, healthy, and well-maintained appearance.

Here we are working approximately 15 feet off the ground around two windows. This project required extra care and caution to ensure the safety of our professionals as well as the safety of the windows and other features of this home.
