Tuckpointing..

Anyone know a good tuckpointing company?

  • Jen Baron JBaron

    I've personally used several times and also referred to many happy clients "Walter Grzebieniak Building Maintenance Inc" Call Greg Grzebieniak direct on his cell at 708-308-3577. He is the son who now runs this over 85 year family business. They do excellent work, very reliable and reasonable. Truly one of the best companies out there!

  • I second Stan Guzik. Rebuilt 2 parapet walls and tuckpointed our 3 flat. He’s been in the business a long time and did an awesome job. Some cheaper contractors will just slap mortar over the old mortar which looks nice for a year but doesn’t last. A proper tuckpointing job...

    I second Stan Guzik. Rebuilt 2 parapet walls and tuckpointed our 3 flat. He’s been in the business a long time and did an awesome job. Some cheaper contractors will just slap mortar over the old mortar which looks nice for a year but doesn’t last. A proper tuckpointing job involves grinding out the old mortar and replacing it. Also if you have an old home, make sure they use type o mortar as it’s the closest type to the original mortar meant for common brick. If they use the pre mixed type n or s mortar, it can damage the brick because it’s compression strength is too strong. Look for evidence of moisture getting into brick (efflorescence or cracks) around the roof, gutters, chimney, and windows and correct them as this can damage the brick. Get at least 3 estimates and references as well if possible. Good luck.
