Tuck-Pointing Project

Karins Engineering Group, Inc. (KEG) was the engineer overseeing the tuck-pointing of the historic First United Methodist Church, Wauchula, FL. Originally constructed in 1914, the brick masonry had never been repointed. Extensive water intrusion was being experienced through the masonry walls into the main sanctuary. Working with the Board of Elders, KEG oversaw the selection of materials, the removal of the old grout, and the installation of the new grout.
