Wilmette, Il 60091 – Tuckpointing Project 1
This is a tuckpointing project that we completed on the side of a house in the Wilmette, Il 60061 area. We can see in the photo on the left that the existing brick wall looks coarse and uneven due the the lack of mortar in between the existing bricks. This is not only an aesthetic problem but deficiencies in mortar often lead to cracks and leaks and tuckpointing is necessary to prevent these issues. These Wilmette, Il area homeowners hired us to tuckpoint this home in order to address all of these issues. We began our tuckpointing project by carefully setting up scaffolding in the surrounding area and then grinded down any of the remaining old mortar or debris. We then installed a new, thick layer of mortar in a color selected by the homeowners before we began our project. As our mortar dried we completed the tuckpointing work by smoothing and shaping it. The top right photo shows the final result of our tuckpointing work. These Wilmette, Il area homeowners were very happy with our work and this area will stay in great shape for many years to come.
