Crumbling mortar on exterior brickwork makes your home look dated and reduces your curb appeal. One of the easiest ways to give it a facelift is through our Omaha tuckpointing and damaged mortar repair services. Tuckpointing is the process of removing the old, damaged mortar from your bricks and replacing it with a mortar that closely matches the color of the bricks themselves. Then, narrow lines of putty in a contrasting color are embedded down the centers of the new mortar joints. These narrow lines, also called fillets, look much sleeker than older, more traditional mortar lines which tend to be very wide. It’s an easy, cost-effective way to make your home look younger!
JM Caulking’s Omaha Tuckpointing Services
Our Omaha tuckpointing services team has experience carrying out their duties on even some of the most damaged, corroded homes. We’ll start by completing an inspection which will show us the severity of the deterioration. Then, we’ll carefully remove all the damaged mortar and choose a color that’s a near-exact match for your current brick color. Using specialized tools, we’ll then refill the areas we cleared with the matching color and add fillets between each of the bricks for a sleek finish.
Quickly Update Your Home
Tuck pointing services do more for Omaha homeowners than just improve their aesthetic. Tuck pointing also reinforces your current masonry work. This helps to prevent moisture from seeping into your walls and causing interior water damage, prevents mold and mildew growth, and offers a much more affordable option than replacing the current brick.
