SAFE AND EFFECTIVE MASONRY RESTORATION
We approach every brick restoration project by first carefully assessing the issue and the desired end result. Sometimes brick restoration is done solely for cosmetic reasons. You may own a historic brick building that has lost its visual appeal over time as the structure aged and was exposed to the elements. Other times, visual signs of brick damage on your building can indicate a more serious structural problem. Perhaps one of your commercial building’s brick exterior walls is bowing. The wall may need to be stabilized and secured to protect the structural integrity of your building. Depending on your needs, our team will provide a customized brick restoration and repair solution that includes services like tuckpointing, mortar repair, caulking, sealing, and more.
OUR BRICK TUCKPOINTING PROCESS
Tuckpointing is a highly detailed process that requires patience and time. Our skilled masons first remove the damaged mortar with an engineered dustless grinding system and fill the joints with new mortar that creates the proper texture. The tuckpointing process both protects your building from mortar deterioration and gives your building a new, striking appearance.
METICULOUS BRICK CLEANING
Most exterior stone & brick masonry has a rough, porous surface and everything tends to stick to it. Dirt, mildew, mold, algae, leaves, insect debris, rust stains, and efflorescence can make it look dirty and degraded. We utilize specialized stone masonry cleaners which break down these stains, maintaining and preserving the integrity of the brick or stone.
