Repair broken brick and stone now to prevent expensive repairs later!
Broken bricks can cause cracks in walls and other bricks
The St. Louis city and county has homes that feature many styles of classic European brickwork. The European craftsmanship extends to walkways, walls and even driveways in some of the more unique homes. The bricks themselves come in a variety of shapes, styles and colors. No matter what kind of brickwork your home has, Irish Construction is able to help keep it in top shape.
Ten reasons you call Tony at Irish Construction are:
1. bulges in brickwork that cause walls to bow out.
2. missing mortar between bricks
3. crack bricks, especially if the crack extends through several rows (course) of bricks.
4. moss or plants growing out of bricks
5. bricks with broken or missing pieces
6. uneven courses of bricks
7. sunken areas of bricks in sidewalk or driveway
8. bricks falling or missing from wall
9 . loose bricks
10. soft or crumbling mortar
Never ignore your damaged brick work. By doing so your problem can end up costing a lot more to fix, especially if water makes it inside your home. A small area of failing brickwork can trigger a much larger wall failure whether the area is high or low on your wall. Structural integrity of the whole wall could be adversely affected by one small area of brick that has been ignored. You should routinely inspect your house for any signs of failing brick or mortar and if you see anything out of sorts, call Irish Construction of St. Louis for a free consultation.
Irish Construction has trained in Europe with master brick layers and brings that expertise to St. Louis. We can repair or replace one brick or a whole section with new brick and match exactly to the style and color of your brickwork. By repairing damaged areas you will save money by preventing water, pests and dirt from entering your home. By fixing bulging or sagging walls, you will stop settling that can ruin whole walls inside and outside your home. A damaged brick can cause a domino effect on the rest of the surrounding bricks and leaves the structure exposed to the whims of natural elements.
