Brickwork can offer a beautiful aesthetic to any home. The timeless look gained by well-maintained masonry is desired by many potential home buyers and it is sure to get the attention of friends, family, and neighbors.
Yet, regular maintenance is a necessity when it comes to ensuring that your masonry work stands the test of time. Excess water, cracking, mortar deterioration, and countless other forms of potential damage could occur if proper preventative measures are not set in place. All of these things not only make your exterior look unpolished, but can weaken the entire structure of your home, as well.
WATER AND MASONRY
When it comes to masonry work, protecting it from water as much as possible is important. The more moisture that is absorbed by the brick, the weaker the foundation will become as a whole. The mortar becomes fragile, stains form, and discoloration is a common side effect. Also, once cold weather hits, the brick will go through a freeze-thaw process that will cause excess pressure, which may eventually lead to a settlement or collapse.
All of these reasons are why protecting your brickwork is so important. Getting it waterproofed before discoloration can occur will save you a lot of time, money, and stress in the long run. SirVent has waterproofing options that are sure to meet your specific needs.

If you are already seeing some damage to your masonry, then getting it repaired as soon as possible is necessary for keeping it strong over time. While you may discover some do-it-yourself techniques for fixing things up, this is not a recommended route to take. Masonry can be delicate to work with and using the wrong products can leave you with a bigger mess than you began with. Matching colors can be tricky and some chemicals will take off the actual masonry itself.
