Both Brick Tuckpointing and Re-pointing are slow tedious tasks, requiring the attention to detail of a craftsman.

What’s the best brick tuckpointing or brick repointing solution for your home?

Many Tuckpointing companies offer “cookie cutter” solutions. They’ll use the same process  for your brickwork restoration as their last project and the one before that. 

At Heritage Brickwork Restorations, we recognise that every brick home comes with its own individual colours, condition issues and potential for massive aesthetic change, based on which Brick Tuckpointing or Repointing restoration techniques are employed.

Bearing in mind that brickwork occupies the largest surface area of your home, getting your Brick Tuckpointing and/or Repointing “right” is critical to the finished look of your home.

Using our 30+ years of experience in Brickwork Restorations to heritage homes in Newcastle, we’ll offer you more options on how best to restore your brickwork to take the presentation of your home to the next level.

“When you see a Newcastle home with beautiful brick Tuckpointing or Repointing, chances are the brickwork was repaired and restored by the craftsmen at Heritage Brickwork Restorations.”

Heritage Brickwork Restorations was started over 30 years ago by renowned Tuckpointer Gunther Vergens.
