We are your local experts when it comes to building maintenance. One traditional repointing method we use is Tuck Pointing.
The process involves a lime coloured mortar that matches the bed joints and the existing brickwork.
It is often used to disguise inferior brickwork and give the grand illusion of gauged brickwork.

Tuck Pointing Professionals
This is a highly skilled and refined craft and is rarely used on new constructions.
This was historically reserved for grand façades as it was known as the ‘Roll Royce’ of pointing. Tuck pointing was historically applied to Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian brickwork were inferior and non-inferior bricks had been used. As a rule, if the façade had Tuck & Lime pointing applied and is in need of re-pointing then this should always be replicated both historically in style and material. Blast Restore Ltd has 40 years of experience in brick restoration, façade and brick cleaning, façade restoration, paint removal and Tuck & Lime pointing.
Lime pointing offers quite a few advantages over cement based mortar that should never be used on historic brickwork.
Lime is softer and microporous unlike cement, allowing for moisture to evaporate ‘breathe’ from the joints in your brick or stonework, whilst also allowing the masonry to move with thermal expansion thus being the best choice for historic masonry and used throughout conservation and approved by English Heritage.
Lime pointing reduces damage to brick and stone masonry, the most common being spalling, lime pointing prevents high moisture levels and soluble salts building up that can lead to penetrating damp. Again lime pointing should be carried out by an experienced professional. Existing pointing must be raked out sufficiently, normally twice the depth of the brick joint size as a rule. Lime putty must be prepared in a way to reduce shrinking and great aftercare must also be applied during the curing stages.
