Penetrating moisture not only weakens the mortar that bonds the masonry units together, it also promotes premature deterioration of brick. If moisture repeatedly finds its way into a brick and freezes, it may cause the brick to spall, deflect or displace. Once this happens, the brick is rendered useless as it offers no structural support to the masonry wall. Removing defective brick will prevent water damage from spreading to the healthy and sound brick remaining. Star Tuckpointing works with a variety of brick suppliers to insure you the closest match to your existing brick when masonry repair is required.
