Oakland County, MI – CTV3 Enterprises CEO Casey Thebolt is well known for his general masonry skills. He has performed countless chimney repair, porch repair, and brick repair jobs over a period spanning two decades. While addressing a landlord association recently, a member asked the question: what is tuckpointing?

“Tuckpointing  is the technical terminology under the general field of masonry that refers to a specialized method of repairing brick or mortar. Under normal circumstances either the brick or mortar can deteriorate or even be damaged. A tuckpointing expert, such as those at CTV3 Enterprises will remove the damaged or deteriorated materials with a diamond-wheeled blade, and then brush away, or sometimes vacuum, the residue until the surface to be repaired is perfectly clean,” Thebolt explained.

“The mortar can be dyed to match the color of the original mixture. Often this is painstaking work and takes considerable time. The texture also has to be matched perfectly in order to blend in. There are several ratings given to different types of mortar including types m, n, and s. It is absolutely essential that a tuckpointing specialist determine which type was initially used so that the new mortar will have proper adhesion characteristics and bond properly,” he added.

When tuckpointing is performed by an experienced specialist, it will be impossible for a layman to distinguish between the old and the new mortar. Furthermore, the new mortar will add extra protection as a water-tight barrier and will last for decades.
