You can finish Finalcrete with a trowel, broom, spray or sponge. Being able to use this concrete repair and restoration product with conventional tools to get the right concrete finish on a repair job is just the first benefit.

Tuck pointing is one of those jobs that you want to be done with after the first pass. Because most brick work is outside, you want the water resistant qualities that Finalcrete has to offer you. Repointing masonry walls might only need to be done once every 25 years, but the job is quicker because Finalcrete is able to accommodate the width of any crack repair or tuck point you need.

Brick can last 100 years and you want to be sure the product you use will stay put. That’s where Finalcrete comes through again with this superior quality that can be a real advantage on a variety of different jobs, including tuck pointing.

Be selective with the joints that you focus on for the job and look for those where the mortar has eroded away more than 6mm. Older buildings might require a cleaning with a pressure washer so that you can correctly determine what needs to be done. Keep in mind that after the tuck pointing is done, Finalcrete can be used for a variety of other concrete repair and restoration jobs including shallow feathering, patching, spalling scars and even deeper pours where necessary.

Finally, the joints need to be cleaned properly for Finalcrete to be most effective. Leaving any defective mortar in the joints is not recommended before application. Where necessary, Finalcrete can also be tinted to meet the client’s needs.
