At Humes Masonry Solutions, Your Home is Important to Us
At Humes Masonry Solutions, we know the importance of a beautiful home. A well-maintained home exterior increases your curb appeal and adds to the value of your house and neighborhood. More importantly, when you take care of its exterior, you create the warm and welcoming atmosphere that your home, and your family, deserve.
Maintain Your Home with Residential Tuckpointing
Your St. Louis brick home has probably been standing strong for decades, maybe even centuries. Part of the beauty of brick is its durability. But over time, the mortar between those beautiful bricks begins to erode. Ice, driving rain, burrowing insects, plant growth, fluctuation in temperatures–any of these can damage mortar, causing it to crack and crumble. This can become an aesthetic problem very quickly. But even more importantly, as the mortar joints crumble, they leave gaps between the bricks and allow moisture and burrowing insects into your home. Over time, the bricks around the damaged mortar, as well as your interior walls, will begin to deteriorate, creating a much larger and more expensive problem. At Humes Masonry Solutions, we will help you prevent those larger problems by maintaining your brick exterior with our expert tuckpointing services.
Why Choose Humes Masonry Solutions for Tuckpointing Your Home?
Tuckpointing is a specialized skill. It is easy to do it incorrectly. Some general contractors or handyman services might be able to fill the gaps in your mortar, but if they do not use the correct tools, techniques or materials, the appearance of your home will suffer. If the job is done without the precision it requires, it might actually harm the exterior of your home, furthering the damage to your bricks and costing you more time and money. You need a tuckpointing specialist if you want a mortar repair that will last.
