Brick Pointing ​​Philadelphia: Preserving Your Home

brick repointing

When it comes to maintaining the beauty and longevity of your home, paying attention to its foundational elements is crucial. Brick pointing, a process often referred to as tuckpointing, plays a role in ensuring the structural integrity of your brickwork.

Brick Pointing Explained

Brick pointing is the careful process of repairing and renewing the mortar joints between bricks. Over time, weathering, moisture, and the natural settling of a house can cause mortar to deteriorate.

Gaps and cracks can be a result of the deterioration. Gaps and cracks can compromise the stability of the entire house and can allow water to seep in. Resulting in potential damage to interior walls.

Damaged mortar is replaced with new mortar, fixing the structure and restoring the brickwork’s original look.

What are the Benefits?

Enhanced Structural Integrity

The brick pointing process refreshes the mortar joints between bricks, which may have weakened due to weathering and time. By carefully removing the old mortar and adding new, brick pointing secures the bricks in position while also preventing water damage.

Consistent maintenance of brick pointing can extend a building’s lifespan and contribute significantly to its long-term stability and safety.

Water Ingress Prevention

Mortar joints act as a barrier against water infiltration. Damaged mortar can allow moisture to penetrate, leading to water-related problems such as mold, mildew, and even structural decay. Brick pointing effectively seals off vulnerable points, safeguarding your home from water-related damage.

Aesthetic Restoration

Beyond the functional advantages, brick pointing improves the visual appearance of your property. Crumbling mortar joints can give your home a neglected appearance.

Maintaining the appearance of your home is not only visually pleasing but also retains the resale value. Performing the brick pointing process allows you to revive your home.

Brick Pointing Philadelphia Cost

The cost of brick pointing in Philadelphia can vary based on several factors. Brick repointing average cost factors include the size, extent of damage, ease of access to the area, and mortar used.

Homeowners can expect to invest between $8 and $12 per square foot which are the average project cost for the masonry restoration. Masons charge an average cost to repoint for more extensive repairs around $25 per square foot.

Choosing the Right Contractor

Selecting a reputable brick restoration contractor for your Philadelphia home is essential to ensure the success of your brick pointing project.

glass block installation

Glass blocks are masonry elements made of thick glass. Essentially, these pieces are see-through bricks. Although they are clear, they still maintain a level of privacy while allowing light into the property.

masonry cleaning

Untended stonework accumulates dirt and grime just like most materials. When we talk about outdoor masonry, stone and brickwork are definitely exposed to the elements. Apart from dirt, this exposure may lead to rot, deterioration, and expensive repairs.

Considering the potential expenses of getting new masonry installed, maintenance may be the best alternative. Masonry cleaning involves deep cleaning processes to remove any unwanted materials that gather on stone or brickwork.

Super Restoration LLC offers safe and effective masonry cleaning services. Whether a client needs help removing dirt, mold, or algae, we have the proper solutions that restore masonry to its former glory.

starbolt installation

Star bolts help keep brick buildings from swaying. Particularly, old brick buildings are at the greatest risk of crumbling. Essentially, star bolts are like washers that fasten the large rods going through the entire structure. These rods anchor the building in place. However, they risk moving and slipping out of place. Thus, star-shaped bolts keep them from doing so.

Should our client need our star bolt installation services for historical sites made of brick, we are ready to deliver what they need. Experts at Super Restoration LLC have professional masons who can keep a site’s historical significance intact.

Additionally, our experts can easily apply the same expertise in securing a regular brick building’s durability with star bolts. Consider discussing the benefits of installing star bolts for your project with an expert before proceeding.

chimneys -repair & build

Repairing and rebuilding chimneys are tough jobs that require a lot of precise, expert masonry. Chimneys face several potential issues, including common cracks due to aging, water damage from faulty waterproofing, spalling concrete from the changing weather, and creosote buildup from overusing a fireplace without proper maintenance.

Despite the range of problems chimneys face, no issue too much for a professional stonemason to handle. Call one from Super Restoration LLC today. With years of experience in the masonry industry, our team of professionals is prepared to face nearly any chimney issue requiring repairs or rebuilding.

basement proofing & sealants

Sealing the walls of a basement is an important practice, especially since the basement serves as a building or home’s foundation. Plus, people tend to stay away from basements since they treat them as storage areas, meaning many homeowners find the problem when there’s already significant damage.

Coating the walls with correct sealants is similar to waterproofing, in the sense that it also prevents moisture from collecting. Basement walls are exposed to underground water. Thus, any home or commercial building owner needs to take the proper precautions against this water finding its way into the basement through unsealed walls.

Professional masons have the right equipment and tools to coat basement walls effectively. Unlike waterproofing and damping outdoor masonry materials, indoor walls can survive with lighter materials waterproofing materials.


Live in an area prone to heavy showers and rainstorms? If so, then waterproofing and damp proofing are vital services to ensure a property’s structural integrity. These practices involve protective treatments that masons apply to bricks and stones to repel as much water as they can.

Masonry materials treated with waterproofing protect a home or building against moisture. Likewise, the structure has a significant defense against indoor floods and the proliferation of molds or mildew. So, waterproofed buildings improve their overall safety factor.

Contact our seasoned waterproofing experts at Super Restoration LLC. We can stain nearly any masonry material with the right sealant or coating to ensure stonework remains as protective as it is decorative. We believe that masonry must balance function and aesthetics.

epoxy injection

Structural damage can have many causes, from vehicle crashes to earthquakes. Regardless of the reason the cracks came about, further damage may come next unless the building undergoes the proper restoration procedures.

Epoxy injection is a standard masonry practice where masons use paste and resin to fill the building’s cracks. Injecting these substances into the damaged areas improves the structure and helps lower the risk of total collapse.

However, repairing cracks in a building can be challenging for inexperienced masons. Luckily, we have seasoned experts on our team to deliver the best epoxy injection services any property owner needs. We are ready to inject compounds in any side of a building with cracks, from the floors, walls, to the ceiling.


We may have clients who have stone or brick walkways or paths. Caulking is the practice of using materials to seal joints between stones or bricks. Similarly, caulk closes up any gaps between the bricks or stones.

Masonry requires a special kind of caulk due to the materials involved in the stonework. Particularly, industry standards recommend silicone caulking compounds for construction purposes. These materials are best for sealing dissimilar materials, which explains why they are perfect for stone and brick structures.

Our professional craftsmen have access to all the best caulking compounds suited for masonry projects. We understand that different clients have unique needs and various budgets, so we provide multiple choices without compromising quality. Consult with our specialists to determine the best caulking services that suit your project.

STONE pointing

Just like brick pointing, stone pointing is necessary to ensure a structure made of rock or stone remains sturdy for as long as it can. However, unlike bricks, the stones for masonry purposes tend to have different shapes and sizes. Because of this, there are unique approaches to pointing.

Incorrect pointing practices can cause irreparable damage to buildings that utilize stone pointing. Whether a building uses stones for decorative or practical purposes, faulty pointing means that it is not finished properly. Be sure to contact a professional mason to handle any stone pointing for a building or structure.

Super Restoration LLC has a team of stonemasons ready to apply the correct pointing services for any stone structure. We apply the best practices in stone pointing, from preparing, assessing, and delivering the right services. Contact us to learn more.
