Decorative Masonry Restoration
Do you have older buildings? Many historical buildings have some form of decorative masonry. Whether it be an intricate limestone pattern or a concrete casting with detailed cornice molding, successful repairs demand the highest quality materials and installation techniques.
Is your sidewalk, staircase or retaining wall unsafe, deteriorating or unsightly? Cracks, erosion, rebar rust and uneven “trip hazards” can be problematic. Consider repair over replacement. Repairing and recoating is usually more affordable and less disruptive.
Are the mortar joints of your bricks crumbling or missing all-together? Repointing is the process of removing old failing mortar and replacing it with the appropriate mortar product. Our standard is to cut back a minimum ¾ of an inch to ensure a lasting bond versus a “slap-on and fill” approach. Each job is completed with precision and care.
Have caulking or expansion joints cracked, fallen out or failed? Water intrusion can cause costly damage to the area through the absorption and freeze-thaw cycle. We practice the industry’s highest work standard, following a specific procedure including proper preparation, priming, backer rod and product installation.
Do you have a parking garage that has water leaking from one level to another? Is the concrete damaged, deteriorating or causing a “trip hazard”? We can service all your parking garage needs. Our proactive, common sense approach is cost effective and will help you to preserve your investment.
