Bricks are made of clay. While strong, clay is susceptible to long term deterioration due to exposure to the elements as well as soil settlement and other factors such as heat and thaw cycles, expansion of soluble salts, trapped moisture, plant growth, and even auto collisions. As the brick weakens and crumbles, the need for intervention soon becomes apparent. We consider the cause of the deterioration as well as the cosmetic repairs thus ensuring a complete restoration.
Timely Masonry Repairs and Restorations
Repairing masonry sooner rather than later is highly recommended. Not only is cracked or deteriorating masonry unsightly, failing to repair it in a timely manner leads to further damage, oftentimes far more extensive than the original point of failure, and more expensive repairs. And because your brick walls support other parts of your home, allowing brick damage to progress could lead to other failures.
Masonry Restoration Techniques
A variety of restoration techniques are available ranging from patching and removing and replacing masonry to applying brick veneers, retooling the masonry, and preserving masonry materials by applying specialized consolidation treatments.
