Tuck Pointing Cost?


Can someone help me out with the square foot cost for tuck pointing. I would like to compare our hourly rate with the square footage price.

There are too many variables to even get you close. Bid it as high as you can and cost it as you go.

Thanks for any input.
how old is the building? maybe lime mortar. pointing up common brick? The material you are pointing up regular mortar is not good for common brick.
( mortar to hard brick to soft=failure ) good luck

Re: Tuck Pointing Cost?


Someone asked about the cost per square foot price for tuck pointing. The best way to answer that is with this question. How much would you charge to replace eights light bulbs? I'm sure you would respond the cost of the bulbs plus the labor and equipment to install them. That would be the correct answer. So, four of those bulbs are in my kitchen the other four are on the Hubbel space telescope. How does that effect your unit cost? It's not the quantity of the work it's the logistics of getting to the work.
