Tuckpointing repairs the worn out mortar between the bricks of your house. It is the restoration aspect of the masonry trade. Beware!! Not every masonry company is specialized in tuckpointing so you need to make sure you hire someone (like Davis Masonry) who is an expert so you get the best results! Some of the reasons you will need tuckpointing will be when you have recess joints.
These areas where the mortar is crumbling or turning into dust and the joints are recessed. This may not be a structural issue yet however, you are going to want to fill those as preventative maintenance so you do not have water sitting in the recesses. The other things you want to note are stress cracks. These are very common above windows, below windows, and above doors. They look like steps going up the wall. Normally, these stress cracks go through the mortar but occasionally it does go through the brick. In this case, you will have to get the bricks removed and replaced.
