St. Louis Masonry
St. Louis, of course, is a baseball town at heart. However, without question St. Louis is a masonry town as well! Brick or stone is found on most buildings to some extent. Within the city limits, most building’s complete structures are brick and stone. There is no denying it’s beauty, elegance, and charm. Take a drive around St. Louis and it is wonderfully obvious.
In addition to it’s aesthetic amazement, masonry is known for it’s permanence and durability. However, as is everything, masonry is another prisoner of time, and will be subject to deterioration – specifically at the mortar joints. The method to repair these damaged and worn mortar joints is called repointing, more commonly now referred to as tuckpointing.
What Is Tuckpointing?
The process of tuckpointing, very simply stated, involves using a grinder to grind or a hammer to chisel the mortar joints to a correct depth, then filling the joints with the appropriate mortar. This is a skilled process, and should be performed by skilled St. Louis tuckpointing professionals to avoid further damage to your home or building. Many factors from incorrect technique can inflict immediate aesthetic ruin on the masonry structure, others can limit the lifespan of the work performed, and others can even slowly damage the masonry units and structures themselves, resulting in more extensive work in the future.
