Are you looking to make a feature of the historical character of your home or heritage building? You might like to consider tuckpointing – the process that commences once the brick or stone mortar is effectively restored. Tuckpointing involves the application of a raised fine white or black line on the top of the restored joint.
- The brickwork is thoroughly cleaned and prepped for pointing
- Depending on your building, white or black lines (tuck) are carefully applied to the brickwork
- Coating is applied to enhance and maximise the results of the newly tuckpointed brickwork
Effective tuckpointing is truly an art form that extends beyond the skills of most bricklayers. It requires significant attention to detail, specialist techniques and considerable workmanship. As such, you need the right team that can ensure your building is restored correctly and professionally. If you’re looking to make the period features of your home or heritage building stand out, tuckpointing can provide high definition results and significantly enhance the façade of your brickwork and stone.
- Increase the value of your home or building by using the tuckpointing procedure to preserve its historical character and integrity

- Increase the lifespan of your brickwork and maintain a cost-effective building

We engaged Premier Pointing during November and December 2016 to repoint and repair the brickwork on our two strata buildings located in Naremburn. The remedial work completed was of an excellent quality.
The project was completed on time and within the agreed budget that had been quoted.
All Premier Pointing staff were professional and courteous and we found them excellent to deal with at all times during the course of the project.
They also did an excellent job of keeping our premises clean and tidy at the end of each work day and did a great clean-up when the work was completed at the end of the two month contract period.
In my experience, it is quite rare to find high quality tradespeople like Premier Pointing and we would happily recommend them to anyone.
My 78 year old home at 1 Flora Street Mascot has just had extensive renovation of the external brickwork by "Premier Pointing Pty Ltd". The work involved rake out and repoint the brickwork on the front facade, left and right elevation and chimney. The gate pair and garden wall were also completely repaired. Other work was to change 6 lintels to right hand side.
I found the work done was of excellent quality. The craftsmen doing the job were exceedingly capable, efficient and courteous with great consideration for the residents as the work was being carried out. The administration staff were also excellent being efficient and available at all times.
The house at 1 Flora Street Mascot is heritage listed and therefore now of great heritage significance. The house was built in 1939 by F H Beenche for my great grandfather Ernest William Sheldrake. It was bought by my parents George Arthur Nilson and Nellie May Powditch (Jnr) and is now owned by myself Robert George Nilson and my wife Julie Yu Hua Fang (now four generations of owners).
The land was part of a grant acquired by Simon Lord in 1810 and in the 1850's was bought by Joseph Tunbridge. By 1928 Flora Street came into existence with houses first appearing in the 1930's. 3 Flora Street Mascot was the first house built on the eastern side of Flora Street in 1936 for my grand parents Charles William Swift Powditch and Nellie May Sheldrake. 1 Flora Street Mascot was built for my great grandfather Ernest William Sheldrake in 1939.
Sincere thanks to "Premier Pointing".
