Brick Repair Specialists
If the modern technological systems we have at our disposal fail, we are more than qualified and experienced enough to rebuild bowed and bulging brickwork and stone walls. Another common brick problem that we deal with, particularly in older buildings, is the weathering of the exterior brick or stone, which causes deterioration of the mortar in the joints. This deterioration requires some professional brick work, known as repointing, a traditional skill which involves removing the deteriorated mortar from the joints in affected areas and replacing it with new mortar.
Brick Repair Services
Particularly at risk are surfaces exposed to the weather, such as chimneys, walkways, patios and sidings. If the crumbling mortar is neglected you could end up with penetrating damp filtering into the interior, and bricks or stones falling out of the exterior walls. When you notice signs of weathering and deterioration give us a call so we can have our re-pointing experts take a look.
When it comes to repointing it needs a professional to analyse the characteristics of the existing mortar so that it can be matched both in its physical properties and colour-wise to the original.
Non Invasive Treatment
These systems are minimally invasive and after treatment, the repairs and restoration are virtually invisible.
