Masonry Restoration refers to a form of repair and maintenance work done on existing masonry in commercial or residential buildings. The repairs could be minor cosmetic repairs or significant restoration on historic buildings. Masonry restoration involves brick repointing, brick removal, tuck pointing, and brick or masonry replacement. Repointing brick or stone is a process where aging mortar is removed and replaced with new mortar. Utilizing the correct mortar is also critically important in masonry restoration. Proper masonry repairs and restoration can extend the life of a structure and restore the aesthetics or historical significance of a structure.
