WHAT WORKS ARE PART OF MASONRY?

The general definition of masonry corresponds to the construction of walls with the assembly of materials, often with the use of mortar. The most common materials for domestic walls are brick, stone and block.

Masons in Montreal can also install and renovate parts related to masonry such as window sills and lintels.

What is masonry used for?

The choice of masonry is basically aesthetic: it is the exterior cladding, and therefore the most visible of your building.

Masonry protects your building. A material like brick provides a buffer against seasonal fluctuations.

Since your masonry serves as a shield for your home, it also suffers from bad weather, such as frost, and wears out over time.

WHEN DO I KNOW IF MY MASONRY NEEDS RENOVATION?

The great advantage of any masonry is its durability if the construction has been done properly with quality materials. For example, brick siding can last over 100 years before it needs to be redone.

This durability improves the facade of your home and its real estate value.

On the other hand, you can see traces that your brick or masonry needs to be refreshed when:

-The surface of the brick is starting to crumble
-Some bricks are cracked or split
-The mortar is crumbling in several places
-Your wall is missing bricks, stones or blocks.

In these cases, the ideal time for the repair depends on your budget and the timing. For example, do you want to sell your house soon? Would you like to renovate your masonry before you retire?

*If a major crack meanders along a wall, it may be a structural fault: repairs in this case are much more pressing.
