Masonry Repair For Your Entire Home

The charming brick homes of the Greater Buffalo and Rochester regions are a testament to Western New York’s rich history and architectural heritage. However, even the most well-maintained structures will require repair. Over the years, the mortar joints between bricks can deteriorate due to extreme temperature fluctuations, freeze-thaw cycles, and water damage.  

Masonry repairs in Rochester and Buffalo, NYFelgemacher Masonry’s whole home tuckpointing, repointing, and masonry repair services can help prevent severe structural issues such as cracks, spalling (flaking bricks), and efflorescence (white, powdery deposits). Timeliness is the key to ensuring that these issues do not worsen overtime.

Maintaining Your Home’s Structural Integrity with Tuckpointing

Think of tuckpointing as a facelift for your brick walls and steps. Our skilled masons remove deteriorated mortar joints, clean the surrounding areas, and reapply fresh mortar.

This not only enhances the aesthetic appeal of your home with clean lines between the bricks that give it a like-new appearance but also strengthens the structure by preventing water infiltration and ensuring proper load distribution.

Commons Signs Your Home Needs Masonry Repair:

  • Cracks: Look for hairline cracks in the mortar joints. Extensive cracking can indicate deeper structural issues, including water intrusion, which requires professional attention.
  • Spalling: When the mortar crumbles and flakes away, exposing the underlying surface, it’s called spalling. It is a clear sign of water damage and requires immediate repair to prevent further damage, including a structural collapse.
  • Efflorescence: This white, powdery residue on the brick surface is caused by water penetrating deep inside the brick material, carrying salt deposits to the surface. While not inherently harmful, it is often the first sign of masonry damage.
