Repointing / Tuckpointing / Mortar Joint Repair

The National Park Service’s Preservation Brief #2, titled Repointing Mortar Joints in Historic Masonry Buildings, defines Repointing, also known simply as "pointing“ or – somewhat inaccurately – "tuck pointing", as the process of removing deteriorated mortar from the joints of a masonry wall and replacing it with new mortar.”

At Mid-Continental we consider “Repointing” an art, and possibly the most important aspect of our trade.  We develop craft-workers around their ability to become a “Pointer”.  Their training involves understanding not only the “How”, but the “Why” and “When” of repointing.  As they develop this skill set, they then learn the arts associated with our trade.
