Tuckpointing is a great way to repair damage to a masonry surface. The largest problem with Tuckpointing is getting it done right. One way is that after grinding the joints, it must be washed out. If not , dust from the grinding will keep the new masonry from adhearing.
We had to come Chicago for some equipment and decided to stop at the shore. Beautiful day!! Chicago does have a lot to offer. It was extremely busy there because that week there was a event that took up about 5 city blocks at the park. It's amazing that they can have some type of order with that many people in one location.
We are rebuilding a chimney in Havana, Illinois this week. I stopped in a local hardware store and they are closing soon. It's sad to see local hardware stores closing. A lot of the large home improvement stores have sure affected smaller stores. But for anyone that owns a small hardware store, thanks for stay open!!!

The chimney that was done today needed to be rebuilt. Most of the time when maintenance is done on a regular basis either just a few brick need to be replaced or tuckpointing. But when the needed time is taken and also the experience that we offer, a rebuild can be done right. With this particular chimney, the limestone between the brick and concrete cap was able to be reset and also the top concrete was able to stay and it needed to be resurfaced. Becauce of the experience we bring to each job, chimney repairs like this one can be done right and steps are taken to lower cost by only fixing what needs to be done and exactly how to do it.
