Spot Pointing is performed when less than 50% of the joints are deteriorated. Spot Pointing is the re-pointing of a selected deteriorated mortar joint in an existing masonry wall. Typically the wall is brick, stone, or block.
When should you Re-tuckpoint?
- When you rake your fingers across the joints and mortar falls out.
- If the joint is already a quarter or more deep
- If you clearly have water damage inside or if water is soaking into
- When masonry is spalling off or popping out in places
- If mortar is has been put over old mortar at improper depth and is
falling (Joint Pinned Over)
- Appearance is poor and you want to enhance it
