How to Determine If You Need Masonry Repair
Damaged or missing bricks are the most notable signs that a building’s masonry needs repair. Our masons will also check the mortar or grout-filled spaces between the bricks for signs of deterioration. To renew the eroded space, we use the repointing or tuckpointing method, which involves removing the old mortar or grout and replacing it with fresh mortar. Brickwork can also be compromised by locked-in moisture, which expands and contracts with temperature fluctuations, damaging the building. One of the most visible signs of moisture retention is bubbling paint on the interior walls, but you may also notice cracks, chips, or signs of mold and mildew if moisture is trapped inside the bricks.
How Commercial Masonry Can Benefit Your Company
Along with addressing any underlying safety and durability issues, our commercial masonry services and commercial masonry restoration can also help improve the overall appearance of your building. This is especially important for businesses looking to gain foot traffic, as some customers may be turned away by a business with a subpar exterior. Making a good first impression can be a major key to success.
