About Heritage Tuckpointing and Brick Repointing

Heritage Brickwork Restorations is a Newcastle, NSW based specialist in the field of Tuckpointing, Brick Repointing and general brickwork restoration to period homes in the Greater Newcastle and Maitland areas.

Both Tuckpointing and Re-pointing brickwork are slow tedious tasks, requiring the attention to detail of a craftsman. Make no mistake, if Tuckpointing is performed incorrectly, using poor quality ingredients or simply by taking short cuts on surface preparation, the resulting finished product will generally be irreversible and will be with your brickwork for the life of your home.

“When you see a beautifully Tuckpointed or Repointed home in Newcastle, chances are the brickwork was restored by the craftsmen at Heritage Brickwork Restorations.”

Once you make the decision to restore the brickwork of your home, whether by Tuckpointing or Repointing, choose the Newcastle company recommended and chosen by more Novocastrians than any other.

Heritage Brickwork Restorations was started over 25 years ago by renowned Tuckpointer Gunther Vergens. Gunther has long since retired, but the company, now owned by Andrew Vercoe, still proudly employs the same dedication to quality, attention to detail and Tuckpointing “recipe” that earned Gunther such industry respect.

Our restoration Tuckpointing and Repointing process adds considerable value to your home and transforms brickwork, often considered to be “beyond help” by the homeowners, to in most cases, an “almost new” look.








































Striking examples of our Brick Re-pointing and Tuckpointing workmanship can be found throughout the Newcastle area, particularly in the areas of Hamilton, Hamilton South, Cooks Hill, Merewether, Waratah, Mayfield, The Junction and the Maitland area.

In an industry where Tuckpointing skills, techniques and overall “attention to detail” can vary dramatically, we are one of a dwindling number of craftsmen who still take the time to produce quality work, as evidenced by the fact that our company is responsible for completing over 95% of Tuckpointed homes in the Newcastle area, over the last two decades.

Our staff take a genuine pride in their work and are chosen for their attention to detail and passion for their work.
