Dangers Of Crumbling Brickwork

Having your brick repaired isn’t just beneficial for cosmetic reasons. It’s also necessary for ensuring your home and family stay safer year after year. When things start to crumble, the structure of your entire fireplace becomes compromised, and if things start to collapse, your home and family could be put at some serious risks.

Along with this, using a fireplace that’s breaking down isn’t safe. It increases the risk of experiencing a house fire or gas leaks, both of which could end up being fatal. When it comes to the safety of loved ones, it’s not worth putting off necessary repairs. Count on us to get the job done right so that you can rest easier day after day.

More About Tuckpointing

When we come across damaged, cracked, and crumbling brickwork and mortar, we typically suggest our tuckpointing services to the homeowner. Tuckpointing is the process of removing the old mortar and replacing it with new mortar, ensuring your masonry holds strong for years to come. This practice helps to reinforce your structure. Once we’re done, you’ll be happier than ever with how great your chimney looks!

Many hear about tuckpointing and think it’s a job they can tackle on their own, but we strongly advise against this. We work on many chimneys that were originally built decades ago and matching the old mortar to the new can be a tricky and time-consuming process. If the colors are even slightly off, your results will look sloppy and unpolished.

Our team has the training necessary to ensure everything looks seamless when the job is complete. You won’t have to worry about mortar on your brickwork or unmatched pieces scattered throughout the structure. We’ll work hard from start to finish, giving you the long-lasting and great-looking results you deserve!
