Our harsh winters can destroy bricks by the constant abuse of ice and water on the wall. When the water freezes into ice, it expands and does damage to the mortar joints and the bricks, often knocking the face of the brick loose. Over time, bricks become more suspectible to further deterioration quickly, which will affect the integrity of the structure.
Brick work is the most common work that we do and it takes years of expereince to be able to match brick types and styles
The solution is to cut around the damaged brick and remove the brick or bricks by smashing them out with a hammer and chisel or small brick chipper.
We take care to source the closest matching brick to blend into the wall. We also take time to colour the new mortar to blend in.
