Masonry Repair And Restoration Specialists
Limestone Repair and Restoration is a delicate thing. Mortar has changed drastically in the last 100 years. The way a contractor approaches each job is a big deal. Not only can a repair be an eye sore because of using the wrong mortar. Mortar content can also damage your units and devalue your structure.
SIGNS OF A PROBLEM
Although most people refer to tuckpointing when talking about filling recessed or missing mortar joints, the correct term is repointing.
Things you should know about repointing
Repointing should be done when the mortar has recessed more than 1/8 ” or where mortar has cracks in it. Mortar health plays a very large roll in keeping water out. Water saturation causes masonry units to break down and decay . Spalling also is a very common result of water infiltration or saturation. These repairs can become very expensive.
