Brick Pointing

HK Builders is Queens’ premiere home renovations and construction contractor. We offer a wide range of construction services for both commercial and residential properties all across New York and beyond, including brick pointing. Brick pointing, often known as tuckpointing, is an important process when it comes to repairing and restoring the mortar joints in a property’s brickwork. Over time, mortar joints can degrade due to weathering, age, and other factors. This can cause water and air to penetrate into your property, causing further damage, and affecting your property’s overall brickwork. This can damage your property’s overall aesthetic, and the structural integrity, while also increasing your utility bills.

How Does Brick Pointing Work?
The process of brick pointing involves removing the damaged or degraded mortar from the joints and replacing it with new mortar that is carefully matched to the existing mortar in color and texture. This process requires skill and precision to ensure that the new mortar is applied in a uniform manner and that the final product has a seamless appearance.

Benefits of Brick Pointing
For many properties, especially older ones, masonry work can degrade over time. And one of the primary benefits of brick pointing is that it can extend the life of a brick structure. When mortar joints are cracked or missing, water can penetrate the bricks and cause them to deteriorate over time – causing leaks, heating issues and more. By repairing these joints, we can prevent further damage and keep the structure in good condition for years to come.

Brick pointing also offers a lot of aesthetic benefits for a residential or commercial property. Over time, the mortar joints between bricks can become discolored, making the building look old and worn. Brick pointing allows us to give your property a fresh, clean look that will make it more attractive to potential buyers or tenants.
