One of the most common questions we get is how long tuckpointing takes. As with many other restoration projects, the size of the building and the state of the existing mortar play a significant role. Here’s an overview of the basic tuckpointing Chicago process and the factors that influence how long it takes.
ON-SITE VISUAL INSPECTION
An on-site visual inspection of your building is the first step in determining how long tuck tuckpointing Chicago will take. This assists us in determining the extent of the deterioration.
OLD MORTAR REMOVAL
The first step in the tuckpointing process is to remove the old crumbling mortar from identified areas.
MORTAR CLEANING AND FILLING
After removing the old mortar, we thoroughly clean the area to ensure that no old bits of mortar or mortar dust prevent the new mortar from adhering to the brick. Finally, the process of filling new mortar is completed.
