Choosing the best brick and stonework experts will cement the success of your project

Fixing or restoring your masonry paves the way to greater curb appeal, resale value and safety. Suddenly, you notice them. Suddenly, you clearly see changes in your property’s masonry, like broken bricks, crumbling mortar, water infiltration, maybe even bulging or cracked walls. Unfortunately, although masonry is renowned for its amazing qualities (namely its strength and protection against bad weather, moisture and frost), sometimes problems emerge over time. Whether you’re a homeowner or building owner, fixing or restoring your masonry quickly will stop further deterioration (often very costly), increasing your property’s curb appeal and resale value and preventing accidents:

  • Brick and stone exteriors add value to your property (their integrity and earthy colours appeal to a wide audience, making your property more attractive to prospective tenants and buyers).
  • If your property’s exterior walls are not up to code, loose masonry may fall and cause damage to nearby property or even injure someone (fixing the masonry, in this case, would actually prevent accidents).

Your masonry renovations might include:

  • Repointing bricks with mortar
  • Replacing crumbling bricks
  • Repairing mortar in stone walls
  • Building or repairing retaining walls
  • Repairing problem areas like bulging brick walls, cripple walls or high moisture areas

Renovating older masonry clad properties requires the expertise of a certified masonry contractor, who specializes in repairing and restoring brick and stonework. A skilled masonry

contractor will identify damage caused by age, weather and water and restore your brick or stonework.

A mason’s skill is even more appreciated when fixing brick and stonework problems in older buildings. Crumbling mortar, water infiltration, shoddy workmanship all cause problems that only a certified and experienced masonry contractor can fix.

In either case, finding the right brick and stonework renovation experts is paramount. That’s where Reno-Assistance can help you. The best masonry fix is working with the right professional mason.
