Masonry Repair

Proper masonry repair is an art form, and can take many years to master. A well executed repair should not stand out when it is completed. When possible, we use matching materials to complete our repairs, offering an ideal blend of old and new work that flows together. Our ability to match mortars, not just in color, but the correct mix according to the age of the structure, gives us a huge advantage in achieving an aesthetically pleasing repair job. A cracked or sinking structure can be overwhelming to a building or homeowner, but we able to offer unique and proven solutions for each challenge that we are presented with. 

There are many factors that can damage masonry units, things like: weather, water, exposure, the freeze thaw cycle, poorly done repairs, foundational issues, and poor drainage to name a few. It is important to realize that many cracks in masonry structures are caused by flaws in the foundation of the building. These flaws should be examined by a qualified professional to determine the best course of action.

If it’s necessary to replace cracked masonry units, which can include brick, concrete block, stone, or terra cotta, it’s important to select the correct materials to use. Not only do you need an accurate size, you also need to match the color and style. Denver Masonry LLC’s professionals have many years of experience in matching existing masonry materials and mortars. We have created our own unique mortar matching system over the years. Simply matching the masonry unit is not enough. A well matched mortar will help to blend the newly replaced masonry units into the surrounding structure. The type of mortar used is of the utmost importance especially when working on a historic or old masonry structure. New mortars can actually cause more harm than good when applied incorrectly to older brick homes and buildings. It is important to understand the original mix used on a structure, and to be able to recreate a matching mix. The highest compliment our customers can give us is when they are unable to detect the area we have repaired.

Also, when extracting the damaged masonry units, there is a high danger of damaging the surrounding areas. Our craftsmen are highly trained and proficient with extraction, using old and modern techniques. Masonry repair can take many forms in our great city of Denver, Colorado. We rebuild sagging brick walls, repair damaged masonry walls hit by vehicles, rebuild chimney's, repair bowed out retaining walls, remove and replace masonry units on old historic buildings, rebuild sinking porches, and just about any other type of masonry and brick repair imaginable.

 
Masonry Restoration and Preservation

Masonry restoration can take many forms and involve many different aspects of the trade. Simply put, masonry restoration is: restoring a masonry structure to it's former functionality and appearance. It can involve structural repairs and/or cosmetic work. We are often hired to give and old building a face lift. This usually involves restoration cleaning the masonry surface of the building, thus removing the decades or a century of staining, pollution, and grime from the buildings masonry facade. The face lift can also include removing and replacing any damaged brick or masonry units from the building. Tuck-pointing or re pointing is also often needed when restoring a building. Shifting and settling, weather, and exposure often play a big role in the deterioration of mortar joints. An often overlooked aspect of tuck-pointing is the given age and composition of the structures mortar. It is important to match not just the color of mortar, but the mortar type. Is the mortar soft or hard? Is it lime putty or Type S cement? Is the aggregate large or fine? Would hydrated or hydraulic lime be better suited for the project? Modern day mortars are very hard when compared to the lime putty mixes often used over a hundred years ago. Poorly done tuck-pointing can cause more harm than good to a masonry structure, it can actually accelerate the deterioration of a masonry building. It is important to blend compatible materials together to create a uniform restoration job. Many decorative features used on older buildings are no longer being produced these days, such as: decorative terra cotta features, sandstone carvings, ornate arches and ledges, and uniquely patterned designs such as egg and dart, or qua trefoils. These are the things that add character and uniqueness to many of our buildings and homes found in the Denver area and the state of Colorado. B
because of modern innovations and technology we have access to products that allow use to recreate some of these historic features, when working from an intact sample. Or perhaps only patching is required, we can do that too. Why settle for just an okay job. Let us go that extra mile for you and bring your building or home back to life. 

Tuck-pointing or Re-pointing

 What do you do if there are cracks in the mortar between your bricks? Or, what if parts of the mortar have been partially washed out by rain or snow? That area of your masonry wall needs to be tuck-pointed.
  Let’s talk about the process of tuck-pointing. It is not enough to slop some mismatched mortar into the crack in your brick wall.

Once the area that needs repair is identified, a professional mason needs to carefully remove the mortar between the brickwork to a depth of ¾ to 1 inch. Then, well-matched mortar is formulated to replace the old mortar. Many factors contribute to matching mortar, including the age of the existing mortar, the mortar type and mix, the aggregate used, the base color of the cement, and the tints used to acquire a match.
 
This process can take years to learn and is not easily mastered.

After formulating an accurate match, the mortar joints are carefully and cleanly filled using special equipment. Once the mortar is replaced, it’s then necessary to tool the joints so that they match the rest of the structure. Tooling can take many forms including, concaved joints, flat joints, cut joints, and joints aged with exposed aggregate. When the tuck-pointing is done correctly, it matches the original work so closely that it’s not possible to tell where the repair occurred.

It is risky to trust just anyone to tuck-point your home or masonry structure. Denver Masonry LLC offers the highest quality tuck-pointing available and it’s performed by experienced professionals.

Masonry Consruction

There is a timeless aesthetic beauty to a well-crafted brick or stone home. Decorative masonry accoutrement's, including patios, walkways, BBQ pits, memorials, brick mailboxes and driveways, additionally enhance the appearance of a property. Whether you want an addition to your home bricked up or a masonry retaining wall designed for your front yard, Denver Masonry LLC’s masons can build it, and we construct masonry walls from the bottom up; from the pouring of our own concrete footers all the way to the cap on top of the wall.

Brick, block and stone are very durable building materials that have been used for thousands of years. If managed properly, masonry will provide protection from the elements for hundreds of years to come.

Concrete

Concrete is one of the most durable and common products used in construction today. Able to cover large areas inexpensively, it is often used for driveways, sidewalks and patios. If a high-quality of concrete was’t used in the original construction however, the surface can erode and crack.

Denver Masonry LLC is able to remove cracked drives and sidewalks, form and then pour new ones, using the highest quality of materials. We also install concrete steps, slabs, and other concrete projects.
