Tuck Pointing evolved in England in the 17th Century and became well established by the 18th century. By tradition, it was built using these materials and it was intended as a sacrificial coating to protect the bricks.

The use of a modern-day sand and cement mix on period properties should NEVER be used or considered. This is certain to have a negative effect on the brickwork over time.
The cement would trap moisture inside the brick preventing the buildings from drying; this continuous cycle will eventually lead to the brick chipping down. This is known as ‘spalling.’
However, sand and lime allows the building to breathe, dry out and move naturally as it was originally intended.
Certain complications such as the weather, age and the incorrect use of materials have meant buildings have now become damaged or lost.
