Water is the biggest enemy of masonry. It penetrates masonry easily if sections of mortar are cracked, missing or not properly bonded to the brick. Thawing and freezing cycles extensively contribute to brick damage. When damage becomes severe, bricks begin to crumble and lose their structural strength. During cold weather, the ability of the air to absorb water vapor is greatly reduced. As a result, residue water near the wall surface will not evaporate, but will freeze instead and cause damage since water expands during freezing.
Usually brick damaged shows in the form of spalling, cracking or flaking.
Masonry repairs provided by Proxer Construction will eliminate water damage and prevent the problem from spreading to other portions of masonry. Selecting new brick and mortar that closely match the existing masonry is essential.
