Bowed Wall Repair

Do you notice a dent or swelling on the masonry wall of your facade? Does the brick on your facade seem to be peeling? Your apartment building is probably suffering from a problem commonly referred to as a bowed wall.

This is a masonry problem that needs to be fixed quickly. If it is not taken care of, the bellies can cause the wall to collapse. It is therefore advisable to call in professional bricklayers as soon as the bowing wall appears.

The causes of a bowing out wall are often linked to water infiltration between the building structure and the brick or stone facing, or due to deterioration of the mortar and joints. Then, with the change of seasons, the infiltrations of water swell with frost. In certain cases, it is then necessary to redo the wall.

To fix the situation, we must first demolish the brick or stone wall. Finally, we proceed to the laying of the new brick or stone chosen. However, when the quantity is small and the brick or stone is still in good condition, we can clean it and reinstall it afterwards.
