Just completed Tuckpointing the front of this beautiful old circa 1880 terrace in Bourke St Maitland. Between the bad weather and the extremely poor condition of many aspects of the original brickwork, it’s been challenging to say the least. Structurally and aesthetically, it’s certainly made a big difference!
(Please excuse the “before and after” not lining up perfectly; our trusty app that we always rely on for perfectly aligned pics just wouldn’t work for the day)
Started work today tuckpointing this beautiful old circa 1880’s terrace in Bourke St Maitland.
The ravages of time, pollution, leaking gutters and downpipes and some dodgy repairs over the years have taken their toll on this old girl’s brickwork.

What is Re-pointing?
Re-pointing is a process whereby old deteriorated mortar (in between bricks) is removed to a depth of 15-20 mm using specialist machinery and new mortar injected. It is then tooled off and once dry, lightly acid washed and cleaned.
Performed correctly, it will add structural integrity to your brickwork and as shown below, can add dramatic visual appeal to your heritage brick home.

Over 8 months in the making, the wraps have just come off this gorgeous circa 1920’s Dumaresq St Hamilton semi.
The team from Goodwood Building worked tirelessly to restore the old girl back to it’s former glory. As part of the overall facelift, we restored and Tuckpointed the brickwork to the front of the property.
How good does the finished renovation look! 😍😍😍
