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."
Joseph Birkenheier Tuckpointing and Masonry's experienced tradesmen restore your home with mortar specifically formulated to withstand Chicago's severe weather conditions. When it comes to your restoration projects — whether it's tuckpointing, brick replacement, chimney rebuilds, or additions, we take great care in our brick and mortar color selections 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.
Dedicated to providing quality service to each and every household and business, Joseph Birkenheier Tuckpointing and Masonry's quality and professionalism are unsurpassed.

Whether it is a small repair job or the complete restoration of your home or building, we work to enhance your investment.
A well-designed home needs a fireplace and chimney that are aesthetically and architecturally pleasing as well as effective and energy efficient. We are qualified and trained to do a thorough inspection to determine the proper course of action for your fireplace and chimney. From stainless steel hood installation to pouring a new concrete cap to a complete rebuild.
We install properly sized, seamless stainless steel chimney lining systems that are highly resistant to corrosion and heat. Stainless steel liners are UL listed and tested and come with a lifetime warranty.
Whether you have a few mortar gaps in your brick or stone wall or you would like to restore your house to its original like-new glory, we can work with you to find a solution to fit your budget.
Vines, dirt and environmental pollutants can become encrusted into the surface of brick and stone over time, turning them dull and dusty. We use specially-formulated, environmentally conscious cleaners to remove decades of dirt and debris from masonry to restore it to its original state.
We use high-quality sealants to fill in gaps around masonry at expansion joints, windows and doors, around pipes, and where other concrete and masonry meet. Tighter seals around gaps and seams keep your house running efficient in every season.
From custom outdoor fireplaces to interior stone fireplaces, to flowerboxes and mailboxes, stairwells, piers, and anything else you can build with brick and stone, we'd love to consult with you on your project to find a solution tailored to your style and budget.
