Tuckpointing Dayton OH is a form of repairing the mortar that is between the bricks.  If you take a look at your home or commercial building that has bricks, you can see small cracks and clevises that are leaving openings where water can leak in and damage the structure.  If you have this happening, then you need a masonry contractor that specializes in this form of brick repair.  We call this brick tuckpointing.

Tuckpointing reinforces the structure that has been exposed to the elements. When mortar that is between the bricks starts to crumble don’t delay in getting if repaired.  If your home exterior brick is starting to crumble,  call your local masonry contractor.
