Spot Pointing


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
    the joints
  • 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
