Restoration of brick wall joints

Repointing brick or stone joints is very important when cracks form in a masonry wall. Failure to repair them can have a big impact on the waterproofing of the building. This can cause water to seep into the back of the wall, trigger the brick to unravel, or even an exterior brick wall bowing out. This can eventually lead to the complete collapse of the brick or stone wall, not to mention mold. These consequences will require much more expensive repairs. The crumbling of the joints is due to the cycles of freezing that we encounter during the winter.

Repointing of stone and brick walls by our masons

It is important to hire a masonry contractor to repair masonry joints for several reasons. It is first of all important to verify the absence of underlying structural damage in the wall, which could have more serious consequences for the building, such as beef bellies, sealing problems which would require the repair of the entire facade, etc. Then, the intervention of professional bricklayers guarantees you a repointing of the stone walls of quality and durability over time.

Our bricklayer masons will start by stripping the damaged joints with care. Once the surface has been cleaned, they will choose the colors of the repointing mortar in order to maintain the aesthetic appearance of the facade. They can finally move on to the step of repointing the stones or bricks.
