Over time motor joints can become deteriorated and began to erode this can weaken the seal between the bricks and loosen the structure as a whole. Tuck pointing is the replacement of the deteriorated mortar with fresh new mortar. when the mortar joints are cracked and damaged they are ground out with a diamond blade then the area is cleaned. Once the surface cleaned it is moistened, to allow the new mortar to bond well.
