Tuckpointing is a type of masonry construction that helps to seal the joints in brick and stone walls, as well as to improve their aesthetic appeal.

The first thing you need to know before getting tuckpointing for your home is that there are two different types of tuckpointing techniques.
There’s dry-tuckpointing, where the mortar is applied directly onto existing brick or stone, and wet-tuckpointed, which involves using a chemical mixture instead.
We typically recommend you use dry-tucking if possible because it can be done very quickly with minimal cleanup work required afterward. When you wet tuck point , however, the process takes twice as long since both hands have to be constantly moistened so they don’t stick together while applying the grout.
In addition, tuckpointing can also be used to fix minor cracks in your walls. If the cracks are more than a quarter of an inch wide, you’ll need to get them fixed by a professional before doing any tuckpointing work.
