Laying stone or bricklaying

Laying brick or stone when building a new home or a commercial building, when working on a home addition, or replacing the siding on a building, etc.

Brick repointing

Brick or stone can remain in good condition for over a century, however the mortar joints have a lifespan of only about 25 years – and that’s if they were done correctly by a good mason in the first place!

It’s totally normal for a brick or stone building to have to get its masonry joints redone. The work consists in removing part of the old mortar and redoing the joints with new mortar – that’s what we call repointing.

Bowed brick (bulging brick) repair

Bowing brick is an issue that arises when there is water that has infiltrated through the mortar joints on a brick or stone wall. When this infiltrated water freezes, it expands (the same concept applies when potholes are created) or rusts the anchors. Bowed brick is usually noticed at the end of winter months and must be repaired quickly so as not to ruin the wall’s integrity and cause it to detach from the building and collapse.

Heritage building restoration

If your building is in an older part of town, where preserving its heritage is required, you’ll need to work with highly skilled masons (not bricklayers) that have experience in heritage restoration. This work is quite meticulous – there’s a possibility that every stone needs to be numbered in order to preserve the originality of the building and to respect the municipality’s requirements.
