Tuck-pointing and removing old signage. We ground out the old brick mortar joints, sandblasted and removed all the old painted signage, pointed and cleaned this solid brick masonry building on the north side of Chicago. To make this repair look great we matched the color and properties of the mortar first on a test panel and used 4″ grinders to cut all mortar joints back 3/8″, then wd re-filled the joints with our special blend mortar. The wall looks like new!
This old Chicago home was hit by a big tree branch that fell due to severe winds. We will make this damaged masonry pretty again! Special care is needed to match the properties and color of the mortar and to match the brick that was destroyed. Several hairline cracks are noticed so the structural integrity of these walls will need to be inspected.
