Tuck Pointing is the process in which the joints between brick and stone are repaired. The joints are cut out, flushed with water, and then filled with new mortar. We always match existing mortar as close as possible.
Loose or spalling brick, cracks in a chimney crown, and joints that are defective are just some of the issues that On Point can repair to have your chimney ready for winter. We also install animal/rain guards and stainless steel liners. Keep your chimney safe and ready to keep your home warm and cozy during the cold months.
In some cases, brick and/or stone can become brittle, they then can crack and break. Brick and/or stone replacement is then needed. The brick or stone is cut out and replaced with a new brick or stone, matching the existing as close as possible. New mortar is used also matching the existing.
We clean all types of masonry structures. We first wet down the surface with high pressure water to remove any loose debris. Then we apply an environmentally safe masonry surface cleaner, and scrub the area with soft bristle brushes. It is then rinsed with high pressure water. In most cases we then seal the masonry with the appropriate sealant.
Driveways and sidewalks are one area that end up collecting dirt and stains. Pressure washing removes loose debris, dirt, rust, stains, mildew, and many other substances that can cause these surfaces to become dull and dirty. Concrete will become brighter and clean, brick and stone will look new again. Pressure washing is an ideal way to restore many masonry surfaces that have become unsightly.
We replace caulking in many different areas. We cut out the existing caulking, clean the area, and install backarod where needed; then replace with new Sonneborn NP1™
matching the existing as close as possible. Sonneborn NP1™ is a one-component, high-performance, elastomeric polyurethane sealant with a high movement capacity. It requires no mixing and typically requires no priming to bond to many materials, including concrete and masonry.
These are just a few examples of the services we offer. We are a family owned and operated business with over 65 years of experience. We have highly trained masonry restoration specialists and master masons, so you can be confident that your project is in good hands!
