How Can You Tell If You Have A Brick Repointing Problem
Your home will likely need re-pointing if you have noticed that your mortar or masonry blocks have begun to crack, fall out or disintegrate. Cracks and missing mortar will allow water to penetrate into the heart of your masonry structure, which can result in the breaking away of interior plaster walls; the rotting of wooden framing, flooring, and moldings, and; the deterioration of your bricks and stones through freezing and thawing.
How Retaining Walls Can Be A Factor
Retaining walls can play a fairly important role in maintaining the safety of your property. Constructed of four main components (a base, masonry units, backfill, and drainage pipes), these structures were designed to retain masses of soil that would otherwise erode or collapse and cause extensive damages to your home or business property.
Our team has extensive experience planning and constructing retaining walls: gravity walls, terraced walls, cantilever retaining walls and anchored retaining walls. Each wall is designed to serve the same purpose. However, the limitations and complexity of the individual designs are based upon the total mass of the soil that the structures will need to hold back.
In order to safely secure your brick structure, our trained professionals will take the necessary steps below to restore your brick structure back to new:
- Safely and securely stage your home
- Correct the removal process in a controlled environment
- Apply the correct application to secure the seals
- Finally, clean the newly repointed finish.
