How Expensive Is A Tuck Pointing Job?

Masonry areas which are exposed to harsh weather sometimes need to be tuck pointed. This can be the case for chimneys, outside brick walls, veneers, patios or other similar parts of a building or a house.

In short, the mortar between the brick can get damaged and therefore needs to be removed and replaced. But in order for this technique to be considered tuck pointing and not re-pointing, the mortar needs to have the same color as the bricks. After that, a thin line is being cut in the middle of the newly added mortar, and this line is filled with mortar with a contrasting color to the brick structure.

The prices for tuck pointing may vary, as they depend on a large number of factors. The average price is that of $5 to $25 per square foot. As an example, an area which is 8 feet high and 40 feet long can cost somewhere over $1,600.

The variations in price largely depend on the labor involved. Tuck pointing materials are rather inexpensive. In case you are located in a region where construction jobs are generally more expensive, then tuck pointing may also cost you more than in other areas. The best option is to call New England Masonry and Restoration for pricing and the different options that are available to you.
