The process for weatherproofing masonry includes the repair of defective mortar joints between the masonry units. This process is commonly referred to as tuckpointing/repointing, where the defective mortar is partially removed to make room for the new mortar that is tooled to a weathertight condition.
Repointing and selective repointing of masonry structures is the primary scope of most masonry repair and restoration projects. At Mid-Continental Restoration we take great pride in our training programs that teach not only the how, but also the why of all restoration techniques, including the art of repointing masonry.
