Tuckpointing Is A Job For The Pros!
Over time, the masonry of your chimney can take quite a beating, inside and outside, especially here in Portland. The inside of your chimney is constantly exposed to high heat and corrosive byproducts, while the outside is consistently fighting off heat, cold and moisture. Although proper construction goes a long way, proper maintenance is crucial to the longevity of your chimney system. Even still, repairs are sometimes needed.

Is There A Leak Contributing To Your Masonry Damage?
Many times, water is to blame for masonry corrosion. If you haven’t had your system inspected recently, or you notice vegetation, moisture or other signs of water penetration (brick discoloration, spalling, etc.), it’s important that you have your system thoroughly and professionally inspected ASAP. Having repairs made without addressing weak areas or leaks will leave you needing even more repairs down the line.
Tuckpoint Work Shouldn’t Be Noticeable
Tuckpointing refers to the delicate process of removing damaged or decaying mortar and replacing it with fresh materials. When it comes to this specific job, the gap between good work and bad work is huge. Tuckpointing requires a lot of knowledge and skill – but in order to last, it also demands the use of appropriate materials, expert tools and professional techniques. The technician must understand the history of masonry and match the materials and techniques used in the original chimney construction — or he could end up doing more harm than good. Tuckpointing should strengthen and refresh your masonry, but when done improperly, it can do quite the opposite.
