Restore Your Home or Business with Brick Pointing in Greater Pittsburgh Area
Is the stone or brick on your property looking worse for wear? Over the course of time, the mortar on these structures tends to weather away, leading to moisture problems. However, with professional brick pointing in Greater Pittsburgh, from contractors with years of experience, it’s easy to get a solution that lasts. The R & R Masonry Restoration team offers spot pointing, as well as whole-home or business pointing services.
About Our Process
The brick pointing process involves removing old mortar from stone or brick buildings, then installing new mortar. In general, these structures need pointing as they degrade due to weather and other natural causes over the years. Consequently, this type of damage occurs most often on the "weather" side of a building. If neglected, this can lead to water problems inside of the building, brick spading, and the general defacing of the building’s exterior.
A common indicator of interior water problems is the presence of paint, which tends to bubble over the tops and sides of windows. The outside clues are recessed open holes all over the wall or very sandy mortar joints that can be separated out with a key or pen.
Know When You Need Masonry Restoration
As brick is worn away, it develops voids, which allow water to enter and cause aesthetic and structural problems. However, it can be difficult to know the extent of the damage until you’ve gotten a professional opinion. R & R Masonry Restoration can create a personalized estimate that provides insight into your building’s condition, as well as recommend the next steps.
In many cases, repointing a brick or stone structure is a straightforward process. However, there are also times when repointing isn’t the best solution for your home or business. Our contractors may advise you replace sections of your structure altogether if the damage proves too severe. The good news is that we also offer masonry repair and restoration service.
