Water Sealing For Porous and Above Grade Building Surfaces

Water Sealing

Chicago Tuckpointing has over 25 years of experience water sealing and protecting all types of porous and above grade building surfaces. The sealant Chicago Tuckpointing applies is a transparent breathable layer that offers excellent protection against the freeze and thaw cycles, efflorescence, mold, wind driven rain and acid rain. Manufacturer specifications recommend re-applying a new layer of sealant every 10 years. Before applying a water sealant Chicago Tuckpointing will do a full assessment of the area that needs sealing. It’s important to replace any loose mortar and cracked bricks before applying a water sealant to any masonry surface. This is to insure that there is a solid base for the sealant to be applied.
