What is tuckpointing?

Tuckpointing is a specialist technique combining two contrasting mortar colours, creating an effect of fine joint lines between bricks. This method of placing white lines on top of a darker base mortar was applied in the 1900s to cover up unevenly shaped bricks. However, with more precise brick production, thanks to advancements in industrial technology, tuckpointing is now used as an aesthetic finish.

Professional. Reliable. Reasonable. Nikolai and Ashley were skilled, generous with knowledge and advice and worked to a high standard. They showed up on time and were easy to deal with. They diagnosed a long standing wall crack problem, replaced a rusted out lintel and repaired sections of a house wall for me and also advised about and repaired sections of a brick boundary wall around my 1930s residence. Their quotes were also competitive. Highly recommend.

Ashley and his team worked on the side wall of my old post war home in October 2023. The render had been bubbling and coming off for a while due to the weather and bricks were crumbling. The plan was to strip the render and tidy up for the new render. I don't know anything about this work but I could not fault them. It looks so beautiful seeing the red brick underneath. Ashley was lovely and easy to deal with, the work was completed below expected price in the end and it was all cleaned up with no mess. They could have continued to charge me the full price in the quote, I would have been none the wiser but testament to his honesty he reduced the price. I cannot recommend these guys more highly. Please consider them for any jobs. I'm planning on using Ashley again to tuck point and repair the front of my home.

Tuckpointing FAQ's

Rendered tuckpointing is applied over existing brickwork, offering the same effect as traditional tuckpointing. This method is utilised when the existing brickwork requires repairs or damage has been sustained. Rendered tuckpointing is also a more budget-friendly option compared to conventional tuckpointing.

You can apply tuckpointing to any brickwork, including walls, archways, fireplaces, and chimneys. Its application is not limited to restoration work on heritage buildings. Mid-century or contemporary architecture can benefit from its ability to enhance or add a timeless charm. If the brickwork on your property needs a fresh face, let us help you lift it with this precise federation-era technique, bringing the fine craftsmanship of yesteryear to today.

Tuckpointing and repointing are essential masonry maintenance techniques, but they involve different functions and distinct procedures. Repointing focuses on restoring the structural integrity of a brick wall by removing deteriorated mortar and replacing it with new mortar that matches the original in composition, colour, and texture. The primary goal is to strengthen the masonry and prevent water infiltration.

On the other hand, tuckpointing aims to enhance both the structure and the visual appearance of a brick wall. This technique involves filling the joints with a mortar that matches the bricks and then overlaying a thin line of contrasting mortar to create the illusion of perfectly aligned joints. While both methods involve removing and replacing old mortar, tuckpointing is generally more labour-intensive and costly due to its focus on aesthetic detail and structural reinforcement.

Yes, repointing is generally less expensive than tuckpointing due to the differences in labour and skill required for each technique. Repointing focuses solely on restoring the structural integrity of a brick wall by replacing old, deteriorated mortar, making it a relatively straightforward process. In contrast, tuckpointing involves additional steps, including applying a layer of mortar that matches the brick colour and a thin line of contrasting mortar for aesthetic appeal. This makes tuckpointing more labour-intensive and meticulous and, therefore, typically more costly.
