Repair & Restoration
As the professional masons in the Ottawa area, we are also delighted to provide repair and restoration services to accommodate all of your brick needs. We know that it can be challenging to find the right company that can offer affordable solutions to prolong the lifespan of your brick. That is exactly what we are here to do! We want you to get the most value and use out of your brick as possible and help you do so by offering repair services that are targeted and localized, as well as brick restoration to revitalize the brick back to its natural beauty.
Along with repair and restoration services, we are also dedicated to offering many other types of masonry repairs that are needed to ensure the integrity and durability of your structure. Many masonry structures can become damaged over time due to neglect or improper installation and building methods when initially installed. If you notice that your structure has cracks around the corners or near the ground, this could mean that mortar was not mixed properly, or the bricks were not adequately dried. We help repair these problems with localized solutions that prevent you from having to repair the whole structure.
We have extensive experience in providing our repair and restoration services for heritage restoration. What this means is that many organizations and buildings will rely on our services to restore a historic place. Historic buildings often have a particular meaning with the intention of preserving them and are therefore very important to maintain their history. We help with heritage restoration in keeping the original structure as true to form as possible. Included in our heritage restoration services are re-strengthening methods to prevent further cracking and damages, as well as repointing the brick and replacing broken bricks.
Repointing brick involves a delicate process where the mortar between each brick fragment is chipped away and replaced with a fresh layer of mortar. This process is intended to brighten up and restore the appearance of the brick without actually having to repair or remove the brick blocks themselves. This is a great way to restore an old brick wall or brick structure. Repointing a brick wall or brick structure does not damage the integrity of the brick but instead gets rid of the mortar holding it together and replaces it with a fresh layer of new mortar that is stronger and more durable.
As with most brick structures, chimneys are not meant to last forever. Because of this, it is only natural that we would provide chimney repair services. Our chimney repair services are designed to help you maintain the physical appearance and structural integrity of your chimney. If your chimney is not structured well or is deteriorating slowly, this can lead to problems when igniting your fireplace and your chimney failing to emit smoke and fumes from the fire. Your chimney is important to your health and safety, so it’s our job to take care of your chimney repairs!
