Following the Broken Brick Road
St. Louis is a city built with brick. It’s only natural that people follow work opportunities. With an almost over abundant supply of tuckpointing companies in St. Louis, being competitive while maintaining quality isn’t optional. Not for the long run, anyway. That’s why here, at Atek, we’ve been able to keep things going for the past 10 years & the future isn’t looking bad either.
A Tuckpointing Company’s success
In the past 10 years, We’ve personally witnessed the rise and fall of nearly a dozen tuckpointing companies in St. Louis. Sometimes even watching those who fail, try again/fail again. Successfully running any kind of company takes Honesty, Dedication and Knowledge of the field. Lacking in any of these areas will only expedite failure. Our father was a mason, My brother and I have been around this our entire lives. I can remember as early as 8 years old asking about tools of his trade, at 9 using mortar to make sculptures of the Pyramids over a soda box filled with Meramac sand for a school project & being 10-11 years old, mixing my first bag of mortar in the wheelbarrow.
Lucky enough to practically be born with the knowledge of the field, honesty and understanding dedication were also major household values growing up. I, like many, learned early that honesty creates trust and that dedication is essential in achieving anything worth mentioning. Forming this tuckpointing company, while utilizing these ideas, with a brother and friends who hold the same values has been unreal. By that I mean, not too often are people doing what they want to do for a living. Masonry restoration and tuckpointing is more than a job to us, it’s a rewarding feeling and good time making things new again with family and friends.
