The restoration and maintenance of decaying mortar and brick produces a spectacular aesthetic quality and gives buildings a stunning, majestic appearance. A brief explanation of Tuckpointing follows which should answer any questions you may have about the purpose and form of this craft.

Tuckpointing Steps

Preservations of a Traditional Craft

Tuckpointing began in the 18th Century as a means to simulate the tight, geometric joins seen in the elegant finish of gauged brickwork. A coloured mortar that matches the existing bricks is used to fill and smooth the joints between bricks. Then, a thin fillet of white lime mortar is inserted in the joins, which sharply defines the bricks and gives the clean, angular appearance of gauged bricks. Beckwith Tuckpointers are passionately committed to using only the traditional methods and tools approved by English Heritage.
