"Dwyer Heritage Restorations specialise in Tuckpointing, Repointing and Building Restoration services in Sydney"
With over 30 years specialised service in Historical Building and Federation style homes, we have earned a reputation for skilled personnel always completing projects efficiently and on time.
Tuckpointing is the raised white lines on the brick outlines on Federation period homes and buildings. Tuckpointing is also known as a way of using two contrasting colours of mortar in brickwork, one colour matching the bricks themselves, to give an artificial impression that very fine joints have been made. Dwyer Heritage Restorations specialise in tuckpointing, the system we use is unique which allows us to guarantee the white lines won't wash off.
Sydney has many beautiful sandstone buildings. In fact a large proporation of Sydney sits on Sandstone. Many of these buildings were built in the 19th or early 20th centuries and now are in need of careful restoration. The supply of matching sandstone can be difficult to obtain. Dwyer Heritage Restorations has successfully completed many projects where cleaning, repairs and replacement of sandstone were needed. No project too large or small.
Repointing is the process of renewing mortar joints in masonry construction. Over time, weathering and decay causes voids in the joints between masonry units (usually bricks) allowing the undesirable ingress of water. We specialise in repointing of brickwork, granite and all types of stone. The system is unique and approved by the PWD, CSIRO Materials Science & Engineering and Heritage Architects.
