WHAT WE OFFER
The basic idea behind tuckpointing is that damaged mortar is removed, and it is replaced with fresh mortar.
Brick / Block Repair
We also specialize in replacing broken/cracked brick and block that are needing replaced.
Power Washing is not just for looks,it’s also a preventative maintenance practice that can help avoid costly repairs. It prevents and kills mold & mildew, and also makes your building looking great.
Power washing also gets the dirt off the brick to make the grout visible and restore the bricks to their original color.
Over the past years, the availability of smaller, lighter and cost efficient power washers has made this a common method. In many occasions, power washing with water alone is a decent option, but many homeowner model power washers lack the required pressure to really clean an older brick wall and many professional models have variable pressure setting which when set too high can be as disadvantageous as abrasive cleaning methods. We set our settings at just the right amount of pressure depending on what is needing to come off and how hard it for the required things to come off.
Water proofing bonds to masonry structures and forms a shield so it doesn’t fade, peel or flake like paint. It is resistant to acids, ultraviolet rays, oils, and water while maintaining a decorative look. With the help of chemical sealers, the durability of the structure and the beauty of the work is preserved. Sealers invisibly protect the structure, forming a barrier to repel stains and water damage.
Water proofing fills the crevasses of cracks the width of a credit card, while still providing a shield. This helps reduce ongoing care and maintenance.
There is a reason why the caulking needs to be checked in various areas around a house or building, to make certain that it remains in good condition. Caulking provides several benefits that you may not notice unless the caulking job isn’t done properly, or if the caulk is somehow removed. In either case, you’ll eventually notice problems.
Caulking around certain joints creates a seal that prevents water that flows down from gutters and roofs seeping into cracks and crevices. If allowed in, this water can cause damage that’s costly to repair. The caulking prevents water from entering the building, where it can cause damage not only to the exterior, but also to the interior.
Caulking provides a seal against small insects that would otherwise have open routes to enter a house or building. Also, without caulking, insects have access to more hiding places once they enter a structure. In addition to creating a more professional-looking appearance around surfaces and materials, caulking also prolongs the lives of those surfaces. Because it protects against outside elements and thwarts inside water damage, caulking also helps protect against erosion.
