Joseph Birkenheier is proud to carry on a family tradition that has been serving Chicago's North Shore since 1939. A third generation tuckpointer taught by his father, uncle, and grandfather, Joseph works by the same standards he was taught by his grandfather over 25 years ago: "You do not put any brick on a home or building that you wouldn't put on your own."


Dedicated to providing quality service to each and every household and business, Joseph Birkenheier Tuckpointing and Masonry's quality and professionalism are unsurpassed. We take pride in helping you restore and extend the life of your house or building. Whether it is a small repair job or the complete restoration of your home or building, we work to enhance your investment.


We are able to restore your home with specifically formulated mortar used to bind together building blocks such as stone, brick, and concrete masonry units — built to withstand Chicago's severe weather conditions. When it comes to your restoration projects — whether it's brick replacement, chimney rebuilds, or additions, we take great care in our brick selection for your project to properly restore your home to its original specifications. Joseph personally selects the brick for every project from a wide variety of local suppliers and distributors to match your home or building as close as possible. We strive to go above and beyond industry standards when it comes to the aesthetics of your home or building.


A masonry contractor is nothing to take chances with. The foundation and structural integrity of your property rely on quality masonry contracting work. We provide this and place true craftsmanship above all else.

A family tradition since 1939
