The process of repairing a mortar joint is called tuckpointing. This term is derived because you are tucking mortar into the damaged mortar joint with the point of a trowel called a “pointing trowel” (original isn’t it?). This repair isn’t too difficult but takes a little patience and finesse. Often one of the biggest challenges with this repair is getting the repaired mortar joint to blend in with the surrounding mortar.
