Commercial Tuckpointing Tuckpointing is the process of grinding out the old or damaged mortar at least an 1″ deep or more before replacing with new. This allows enough space for the new mortar to bond properly. After the joints are ground out, we apply new mortar. We don’t cut corners with this process because the new mortar will not bond properly, and will eventually fall out within a few years. Tuckpointing properly is very important for the longevity of your home. Force Masonry prides itself on using best practices and will be the honest choice you can count on when it comes to tuckpointing!.
