Brick buildings in the Somerville MA area give the city a look of elegance and class. Their classic charm makes them very appealing. However, over time, the mortar between the bricks may wear off, making the structure look very unattractive and structurally weak. Tuckpointing is the solution against such damages. At N&P Masonry we specialize in tuckpointing masonry services to restore buildings, homes, structures and walls in Somerville MA.
Tuckpointing is the process of refilling and repairing those worn off parts of the wall. This process helps reinstate the structural stability of the building.

At N&P Masonry, we offer two main types of tuckpointing services:
If the brick masonry has undergone severe wear and tear and the entire wall requires treatment, solid tuck pointing is the best solution. On the other hand, if specific problems – such as an open hole in the wall and cracked or damaged sections – need to be addressed, spot tuckpointing is recommended.
