 While most Washington DC and Old Town Alexandria homeowners will probably not be up for DIY attempt to repoint a brick foundation, or any tuckpointing brick projects, we like this video recently posted by the team at Ask This Old House. It provides a good look at how tuckpointing works, and why it is so incredibly important to use the right kind of mortar for the age of bricks.
