How Chimney Tuckpointing Can Save Your Fireplace
The cause of most chimney structure failure is in the deterioration of the mortar holding the bricks together. Masonry Waterproofing, and Drainage Masters can remove the damaged mortar and provide chimney tuckpointing that improves both the look and function of your fireplace.
What is chimney tuckpointing?
Chimney tuckpointing is the process of removing cracked, chipped, and faulty mortar between bricks and replacing with new, fresh material. Not only will your chimney look like original, but you can avoid the extreme costs associated with a total rebuild. Tuckpointing catches the mortar problems before the bricks get loose and threaten the integrity of the chimney structure.

What’s the difference between chimney rebuilding and tuckpointing?
It depends on your chimney’s structural integrity and how much mortar is missing. Rebuilding the chimney will require removal of all bricks and mortar and replacing with bricks that are salvageable, or a mix of new ones. Tuckpointing directly addresses the problems with the mortar. Technicians with Masonry Masters can handle either project and have your chimney looking and working great in no time.
Chimney Tuckpointing Cost
The cost for tuckpointing a chimney varies depending mainly on the extent of the area and damage repairs needed. No matter how extensive the area is, the cost is more affordable than a complete rebuild. Our experts with Masonry Waterproofing, and Drainage Masters can give you an estimate of the projected cost.
Chimney Repointing Improves Aesthetics and Performance
Discolored, chipped, cracked, and missing mortar can make your chimney look terrible and aged. Chimney repointing breathes new life into the looks of your fireplace. Loose and missing mortar also subjects the chimney and interior of your home to possible water intrusion and further damage. Chimney repointing will help keep your fireplace protected from the elements and working correctly.
