The brick chimney and stone chimney is masonry as well so if mortar is starting to breakdown and crumble, it is essential to have a professional do the repair properly.

We will take proper measures when it comes to safety so that both you and your family will stay safe.
Lintel is the large piece of stone or concrete that is laid across on top of openings in a building such as doors or windows. If you have lintel as part of your masonry structure, it is important to do regular inspection to ensure that it is structurally sound. Damaged lintels cause the masonry above it to lose structural support and could potentially collapse if immediate action is not taken.

We waterproof walls by applying sealer on the surface to help prevent water and moisture from being absorbed. We emphasize that major damages are caused by water and moisture penetrating the structure leading to mold growth and water being trapped within the walls.

A parapet wall is a wall that sticks above the roofline of a building around the perimeter. Since the parapet is at the top of the building, it partially acts as a roof as well, so it is very important to make sure it stays waterproof to prevent water penetration. We have the correct solution if your building has any problems with the parapet walls.

Benefits of Masonry
Probably the most attractive trait about masonry is that it is cost effective. First of all, there are cost benefits when the construction starts in the beginning and the cost stays down throughout the lifespan of the structure due to the low maintenance it requires compared to other materials. It is durable and will last long internally unlike drywalls that frequently require repairs, and externally it is very mold resistant unlike other building materials such as wood so saving you more frequent maintenance fees. Again, keeping maintenance or adding masonry to your property will increase the value of it and prevent future repairs and help you save more money in the long run. Whether visually, structurally, or financially, overall, it is the material of choice but if by some off chance it requires repair or if you just want a fresh look and renovate, our team of professional masons will be able to keep that price even lower with competitive pricing to help you stay within your budget while providing highest quality repair or renovation work.
Strong Structural System
Everyone knows the story about the wolf and the three little pigs. The wolf destroys the straw and the wooden house of the first two pigs but he is not able to bring down the third pig’s house because it is built out of strong solid bricks and there is a valuable lesson to be learned here. It is a good idea to change to masonry if you are thinking about replacing perhaps the wooden part of your building or changing the interior layout to a bricks or stones. This is because masonry buildings are known to be structurally sound and this will keep it safer as well. If you are setting up Internally for an interior design, the durability of brick and stone walls are resistant to holes that are often created in drywalls and it will require little to no maintenance. The entire structure and the frame of the house will not warp or bend as much with the support thanks to the uniform nature of the construction and the ceilings will not crack, the moulding will stay in place and the doors will close properly. The structural integrity will be resilient to earthquakes, sound and fire.
Speaking of fire, there is another significant benefit of masonry which is its splendid performance under fiery conditions. This factor of being fire-safe is good when it comes to insurance policy because they take this into account when calculating premiums. Masonry will help you save money with the insurance company as well so this is a good investment when looking at the long term. Brick walls give a durable fire obstruction that is absolutely non-flammable and won’t break down in structure because of absence of upkeep. Stone work construction, which has for some time has been recognized for fire immunity, is another amazing characteristic and quality which different materials can just profess to meet. When being tested for fire resistance and endurance, masonry structure is tested through conditions up to 2000 degrees Fahrenheit with a pressure test from a fire hose afterwards. other fire barrier structures cannot be tested this way because they will not be able to endure and fail.
Exterior masonry structure acts as an excellent noise canceler and it will keep outside noise out and inside noise in. Brick and stones can create a much quieter environment compared to other building materials such as wood or vinyl because it is much higher in density and stone properties, and it has exceptional ability to reduce transmission of sound. If you have a hobby that causes a great deal of noise such as power tools, playing the drums or guitar or the piano, or playing loud music then brick buildings are a safe bet to not anger your neighbors and can maintain peace for everyone.
Energy Efficient & Environmentally Friendly
Compared to the lightweight walls such as wood or vinyl sidings, masonry walls are able to maintain more efficient thermal barrier around the house. Studies show that it is able to keep the heat in and cold out and vice versa. The electricity bill will be much lower during the summer and the winter time by keeping the air conditioning system running efficiently without great versatility in temperature, so there is more opportunity to save money. On top of being energy efficient, it is also environmentally friendly or “green” as well. It should be obvious that masonry does not use timber so we can help save more trees with this method. It won’t kill forests and deplete the natural resources to help the earth stay green and healthy. Overall, the process of producing bricks and stones requires very low energy in comparison to other manufacturing materials.
