Brick Step Repair

Your brick steps are the gateway welcoming guests and visitors to your majestic  Buffalo and Rochester home. Although you go up and down these stairs frequently, it is easy to overlook the cracking, spalling, and damaged masonry. While these deficiencies can make your home look less inviting, they pose another problem: They increase the risk of a slip and fall, which could result in an injury claim against your homeowners’ insurance policy.  

Brick and mortar have that indestructible appearance. But their constant exposure to the elements – hot summers, cold winters, rain, and even ice, can eventually take its toll, making this once vibrant stairway to your home appear crumbling in the wind. Felgemacher Masonry’s brick step repair can restore its inviting appearance and structural integrity.

Spring rain, harsh winters, and frequent freeze-thaw cycles in Buffalo, Rochester, and Western New York can damage your brick steps.

Here are four signs to look for:

  • Loose or uneven steps create a tripping hazard and may indicate problems like settling or foundation issues.
  • Crumbling or cracked mortar weakens the structure, allowing water to seep in and causing further damage during rainy weather or freezing temperatures. 
  • Spalling bricks occur when the masonry surface flakes or chips away. It’s a tell-tale sign of deterioration and looming water damage.
  • Leaning or bowing signifies a more serious structural problem that requires immediate repair.

After an inspection, our masonry experts will promptly perform the necessary repairs to maintain the beauty of your home’s entrance while preventing further damage and costlier repairs down the road.
