At Olsen Tuckpointing Company, we are proud to have more than 50 years of experience in assisting customers throughout the Barrington and Chicagoland area with cleaning their buildings.

If you are in need of new masonry cleaning, restoration cleaning, tuckpointing or other masonry services for your home, office or industrial property, contact Olsen Tuckpointing Company right away.

Our team can help provide you with masonry cleaning for:

  • New brick, stone, or blockwork - After bricks are laid, mortar from joints is often smeared onto other bricks and can create a messy appearance. Similarly, when brick is patched or replaced, or after extensive tuckpointing or chimney repairs, bricks will require cleaning.
  • Old brick or stonework - Older chimneys and buildings can accumulate dirt, algae, oxidized paint from siding, or even staining from the environment. All of these factors can make the brick or stone look dirty. Our team will professionally clean the outside of the building, restoring the masonry to its original glory.
  • Pressure washing - Dirt, plant growth (such as algae, ivy, or mold) can make anything from brick walls to paver patios, decks or sidewalks look dingy and dirty. Pressure washing can bring new life to old brickwork or concrete and make your home look new, restored, and beautiful.

A Skilled Team for Any Type of Masonry Cleaning

It is crucial to choose to work with a team of seasoned professionals with knowledge of various cleaning agents and pressure washing techniques. More importantly, your technicians should understand the unique effects that each cleaning agent or technique has on different types of brick, stone and mortar. At Olsen Tuckpointing Company, we take immense pride in offering our clients with the most thorough, pristine, and long-lasting results possible. This means that we pay meticulous attention to the important details that others may oversee or fail to notice.

If chemicals are used, it is important to cover copper awnings, be aware of and thoroughly rinse windows and doors, ground vegetation or landscaping, and so on. We keep an eye on weather conditions, especially wind, to ensure the safest application of chemicals. Further, different masonry and mortar combinations respond dissimilarly to certain chemical cleaning agents, so it will be mandatory that your team has extensive experience with a wide range of surfaces. At Olsen Tuckpointing Company, our technicians work directly with brick manufacturers to obtain the latest masonry cleaning specifications and we only use appropriate cleaning agents.
