Early Signs of Deterioration
If there is water running down the brickwork, this may come from something as simple as an eavestrough leaking or an inadequate slope on landscaping causing water to run back towards the house. Whatever the cause, try to address it quickly; this will prevent any further deterioration. Our brick repair experts are easily able to determine the condition of the brick structures of your home, and can develop a plan to properly repair or restore it accordingly. The type of brick, the style of brick, and the age of the brick are all important aspects when evaluating what shape your brickwork is in.
Another sign that you might need brick repair and that your brickwork may be deteriorating is having efflorescence or white residue forming on the surface of the brickwork. This happens when water that has collected salts and minerals (commonly from roofs & eavestroughs), runs down the masonry. Once you see this appear, it’s best to have it removed quickly & professionally to prevent further deterioration.
If the above two signs were not dealt with, then the salts will have had the time to build up and eat away at the clay brick surface which will cause the brick to start to spall. Once it’s wet from rain, it spreads into surrounding bricks; once this happens a brick repair, restoration, or brick replacement is required.
What are some things that you can do to avoid constant brick repair? Getting it done right the first time to ensure maximum longevity. By fixing all leaking downspouts and landscaping which may be running towards the house, you can reduce the amount of water and salts that gets into the bricks in order to minimize the deterioration process. Also, as mentioned above, as soon as you see salts (efflorescence) forming on the brickwork, have it removed immediately.
