How to Get a No Pressure, No Hassle Tuckpointing Job Done Right

Getting work done on your home can be frustrating. Depending on your needs, you may be facing expensive quotes from companies you’re apprehensive about. When it comes to tuckpointing, you want to find a company that will get the job done right without causing too much stress and strain on your life.

Tuckpointing is a technique used in masonry to repair or refinish the brickwork on your home or structures around your property. It’s essential for the integrity of the building and adds an aesthetic charm that creates that special “wow-factor” of many brick buildings. While brick can last for decades, mortar can’t. Over time, the mortar between your bricks deteriorates and starts to look old, crumble, and eventually creates instability for your home’s structural support. Tuckpointing renews the mortar and creates a sturdy, beautiful finish that will keep your building looking new. However, the problem arises when it’s time to find masonries to make the necessary repairs. There are a lot of companies that claim they are the best, but many fall short. Rather than waste your time and breath trying to find a good masonry, there are a few things you can do to get a no pressure, no hassle tuckpointing job done right.

Steps to Finding the Right Masonry Contractor

The first step is making sure that you make the time to communicate with your masonry contractor. Try and be flexible, as scheduling can sometimes be a little crazy, but try not to avoid this step. When you make the time to communicate your wants and needs directly, you’ll go into a job with a better understanding of the costs, procedures, and overall timeline. If you absolutely can’t meet your masonry contractor in person, find a company like Chicago Tuckpointing Inc. who will work with you over the phone or online. Sometimes, going through the process of a meet and greet isn’t possible and instead of dealing with a company that insists on signing paperwork before giving you estimates, it’s best to find a company willing to work with you.

To make your life easier, we want to ensure the best possible job with the lowest amount of risk. If you’re curious about the cost for your tuckpointing job, give us a call. We’d be happy to talk about your needs and see how we can accommodate you. You can also fill out the contact form on our website. During this process, be prepared to have your project needs or wants listed and specified along with any pictures of damage. If you’re ready to get started with a walk through, let us know when the best time to come by is and we can have it professionally inspected prior to starting any major work. When taking the pictures, make sure to do so in high-resolution and include any areas that need work along with the surrounding site. This allows us to familiarize ourselves with any repairs that will need to be done along with your property.

After you’ve submitted your information and gotten in contact with us, you’re welcome to sit back and relax. One of our masonry professionals will get in contact with you and provide a proposal for any work that needs to be done or projects described in your form or email.
