Without waterproofing brick walls, your landmark building could be in danger. Water damage on brick looks appears in the form of salty white deposits. Before your building shows water damage signs, you must have it examined and treated.
Why Is Waterproofing Brick Walls Important?
Did you know that bricks can absorb water? Different types of brick hold different amounts of water, with half brick absorbing up to 15% water. To maintain the longevity of your landmark building, you have to invest in brick repair, stone restoration and waterproofing. Without waterproofing, the mortar can wear out at the edges of the brick. Brick and stone begin to break down, resulting in extensive damage to the property.
What Happens during the Brick Repair and Waterproofing Process?
To repair brick and stone, contractors must remove the damaged or deteriorating pieces of brick. After removal, repair technicians will install new bricks to stabilize the wall. Waterproofing brick walls require building restoration companies to apply a high-quality sealer. The sealer doesn’t allow for water to penetrate the brick.
