Brick is a durable and aesthetically pleasing choice for landmark buildings and businesses. If you own or manage a brick building, brick restoration should be a part of your maintenance schedule.
Brick Restoration Basics
Bricks become loose and damaged over time. Technicians in brick wall repair can replace damaged bricks without compromising the surrounding brickwork. When you have loose brick, it cannot hold the bricks above. If the bricks fall, then large sections of your brick could fall. Sealing the brick and mortar protects against water damage.
Common Water Damages
If there are cracks in your brick wall or you did not bother with waterproofing brick walls, the material can absorb water. As the brick absorbs water, it becomes less structurally sound. Without brick restoration, the bricks could crumble and put the whole structure at risk.
Additionally, water damage can lead to mold growth within your landmark building or business. Mold can grow in as little as 24 hours under the right conditions. Mold can also create an unhealthy environment for guests and employees, as some forms are toxic.
