Tuckpointing Chicago buildings with craftsmanship and care is the foundation of our business. While brick can last 100 years, mortar lasts just 20-30 years, depending on exposure to the elements. If your building has deteriorated mortar joints, tuckpointing will help maintain the integrity of the wall system and keep water from deteriorating the brick as well. Our tuckpointing process involves scraping out the old mortar to a depth of 1/2″ or 3/8”, removing dust and debris from the joint, carefully selecting mortar, packing mortar into the joints, tooling of the joints and spraying the surface with water to ensure proper curing. Shamrock Tuckpointing, based in the South suburbs, has been tuckpointing Chicago commercial and residential buildings for more than 30 years. Also known as “pointing” and “repointing,” tuckpointing becomes necessary when the mortar becomes loose, threatening the stability of the structure. •Insured and Bonded •30+ Years in Business •A+ Rated Better Business Bureau •Serving Chicago and Suburbs
