At Olsen Tuckpointing Company, we are proud to have more than 55 years of experience in providing high quality tuckpointing services with exceptional results to all of our clients in the Chicagoland area. Because tuckpointing is typically done on an as-needed basis (sometimes only a portion of a wall of a chimney will need repair), it is critical to:

  • Match the preexisting mortar color and joint style
  • Match any brick or stone needing replacement
  • Remove or grind out all deteriorated mortar to a sufficient depth, typically about 1/2 inch or 1 inch deep

Tuckpointing is the process of removing old, deteriorated mortar from between bricks, stone, or block and replacing it with new mortar. In some cases, individual bricks or stones are damaged or cracked and are replaced. Tuckpointing can also function to prevent leaking or additional damage to the bricks. Additional masonry restoration services include: brickwork, brick staining, brick patching or restoration cleaning.

For most of our clients, mortar joints and bricks can crack as a result of:

  • Normal wear-and-tear
  • Freezing and thawing conditions found in Illinois
  • Settling of the structure
  • Constant weather exposure

Jeremiah came to our home to give us an estimate on replacing the sill under our front door. Joe did the replacement on Monday, and went the extra mile to make sure the job was done correctly. He did a fabulous job replacing the sill and doing the caulking across the entire front stoop. During thee process of removing the old sill, he discovered that he could see into the basement and called the office to have someone bring some brick to the house. He bricked the area that was exposed before replacing the sill. This attention to detail was very much appreciated. Top notch company with skilled employees, and would use the again.

Nice job guys!!! Part of what makes a good company great is ...

I had Olsen repair a brick wall leaking through to an inside ceiling and change my rowlock brick sills to stone. From start to finish I was extremely satisfied. Jeremiah came out right away and inspected the wall, offered his opinion and options. He was very knowledgeable and thorough with his explanation and answers to my questions. I was kept informed about the start date and there were no delays. Joe and the others did an excellent job taking down a portion of the wall, replacing the through wall flashing, rebuilding the wall and replacing the sills. The attention to detail really showed how much pride they take in their work. The flashing under all the sills was replaced as well as drip edge installed. Then the clean up and waterproofing of the wall. Water testing was done in the end to be sure we wouldn't have any other issues. I would recommend Olsen Tuckpointing Company to anyone who needs some work done without hesitation. Nice job guys!!! Part of what makes a good company great is good communication and yours was great.
