Getting the brick on your house or business taken care of can be one of the best investments you make in your home. Brick repair and repointing helps improve the structural integrity of your home or business while increasing its value.
Repointing, or tuckpointing, is the process of removing the old mortar from a brick structure and rebuilding it properly using the original brick.
In many cases, brick repair is superior to a full rebuild as it helps preserve the consistency of the color while making sure the structure is safe, strong, and secure. The end result is a beautiful brick structure that can last for decades to come.
Repairing your brick won’t just leave you with a pretty home. You’ll have a home better insulated from weather, strong structural integrity, and the monetary gains of improving the value of your home.
In Michigan, the weather can worsen damaged brick more and more every day.
Call in a brick expert and see if brick repair could improve your home or business in these ways:
Repaired Brick Walls Keep Water Damage Away
During the process of repointing, cracks that could lead to water entering and damaging your home are sealed, keeping your house safe from a costly interior repair.
Repaired Brick Walls Are Better Insulators
A brick wall that is solid will always insulate better than a wall with cracks or holes in it. Not only can weather like rain get in and ruin the integrity of your home, it can be a critical weak point in your home’s insulation.
Chimney Repairs Can Strengthen Your Entire Home
A brick chimney is a self-supporting structure. Even in a home or business with no other brick besides the chimney, unproperly cared for brick chimneys can lose the ability to support the building and cause damage to the surrounding structure.
While a chimney repair may seem unnecesarry, it is paramount to ensuring your home or business is structurally secure.
Cracking Brick Can Point To A Bigger Problem
If you have a cracked brick wall on your home or business, you may have a problem with the foundation. It could also be other, more minor issues like natural aging, poor original execution, or a flaw in the original design. But calling in a brick specialist to examine your wall to determine the cause of the cracking can help prevent major problems down the road.
Leaning Walls Are Urgent Matters
If your wall is leaning, this points to a major structural issue that could result in costly damage. Not doing anything about a leaning wall could lead to your home to be legally uninhabitable.
