If you have a fireplace and chimney, as you probably know, you have a beautiful design feature which increases the value and appeal of your home and provides opportunities for enjoyable moments by a cozy fire.  But did you know that all masonry chimneys need repair at some point?  The mortar joints become damaged due to harsh weather conditions, particularly excessive amounts of water

Tuckpointing | Chimneys Services

5″ Diamond tuck-pointing blade

This is the first step in the tuck-pointing process. This blade is designed to be used on brick joints, the blade is normally a 1/2″ thick to grind the total joint in one pass.

Water Treatment

This final step in the prepping process is key, for the fact that neither a brush nor  high PSI air will completely remove all leftover dust molecules from the grinding process. This step is commonly missed with many masons. Our outlook on this is every step matters for proper adhesion. When water pressure is applied it completely clears the surface area of the brick joints, by opening up all the surface pours to ensure proper adhesion. A great analogy of skipping this step is like sticking a piece of tape on a dusty floor before using it.

Masonry Jointer

Using a tuck-pointing tool you scribe across mortar joints and smooth surface to give the mortar joints the proper seal.

High PSI Air Blower

This is the second step in our tuckpointing process. As you can imagine after cutting through mortar with a diamond blade grinder, it leaves a drastic amount of fluffy textured mortar dust. After this process roughly 70% of the dust debris is removed, theirs still a good amount of dust clinging to the open pours created by the diamond blade. So we move on to our next step in the prepping process

Grout bag application

After mixing type s mortar to the proper consistency, we start the mortar application by putting mortar into grout bag. After filling the grout bag we slowly fill the voids we created with the diamond blade grinder, being sure to some what over fill voids to ensure after we scribe the joints there will be plenty of mortar between brick joints.

Clean and Brush

When all steps are finished and mortar is at the proper moisture content level we make a few passes horizontally as well as vertically with a coarse concrete brush to knock down all small leftover peaces clinging to brick.

“Highly recommend Guardian Chimney Solutions – I called them on a Monday afternoon concerning a smell coming from my fireplace and they were here by Tuesday. As a new home owner, were knowledgeable and wonderful to deal with. They took the time to explain everything. Definitely will be using them if there are any other issues!.”

Rich Harman


“Showed up on time for both estimating and doing the work. Estimate was very clear and thorough. (And less expensive than the “other guy”.) Work was done in a timely manner, everyone was polite, and they cleaned up afterwards. Every company should be this good. Kudos!.”
