Parapet walls are barriers at the edges of roofs, balconies and other structures. If you have a parapet wall, you may eventually require parapet brick repair services.
The Parapet Wall Dilemma
Did you know that parapet walls expand more often than other types of masonry? Parapet does not have a dead load to contain it. Movement can cause cracks, leaks and deterioration.
Any cracks or holes in the brick can weaken the building’s overall structural integrity. Damage compromises the safety of your building and eats away at the property value and hikes the energy costs.
The Parapet Brick Repair Solution
Brick restoration includes stabilizing the building and installing new, structurally sound bricks. Additionally, we can stain the brick to ensure it matches the rest of your structure. We cut out the damaged bricks and replace them.
We may need to replace the coping stones to prevent water leakage in a parapet brick repair situation. When moisture seeps into the brick, the freeze and thaw cycles wreak havoc on it.
