Extreme Winter = Potential Damage

This is a courtesy message from Arrow Masonry…Condo Owners, Property Managers, and Engineers please be on alert for potentially dangerous situations your masonry buildings could pose as a result of this extreme winter!

Bitter cold temps, snow/ice damming and brutal wind forces have undoubtedly caused your masonry facades to expand/contract…heave/hoe…bend/sway.

Before your masonry building gets cited or worse becomes a public hazard with costly liabilities call Arrow Masonry today at 847-776-6400 or click here to request a quote.

Flaking brick/displaced masonry/crumbling mortar joints /corroded steel lintels/ and menacing leaks are all evidence that serious repairs are mandatory. If your masonry building is suffering from any of these conditions contact Arrow Masonry now and one of our qualified estimators will inspect your building to assess the damage.

The signs your building needs a restoration or renovation

Like the saying “don’t judge a book by its cover,” we shouldn’t judge the condition or inside of a building or house by the looks of its exterior. Unfortunately, human nature gets the best of us, as first impressions – when it comes to people, books, and even buildings – are too powerful to ignore.

Like many other renovations or repairs you’ll make to your building or home, improvements to your building’s exterior can be a major investment of time and money. In many situations with older buildings, this is especially true for restoring or renovating masonry and stones in the exterior. However, the benefits of restoring or renovating your exterior are well worth it. If you have us do the hard work of planning and making the renovations for you, your financial investment in your building or home’s exterior will not prove to be much of a time investment as well.

  • Selling or renting the building or house. It is a truth in selling or renting your building or home: Buildings with visibly crumbling exteriors will sell for less than those with tidy and appealing exteriors. If you are planning on selling or renting your house or rooms in a building, plan on contacting us months ahead-of-time to get an idea of how much time and money you’ll need in order to make the necessary changes to ensure your building does as best as it should in your local market.
  • Doing better business. In business, image can mean as much as substance when it comes to who attracts the best employees, contracts and profits. If you are trying to hire new workers or contractors, wouldn’t you want them to have the best impression of your business the moment they arrive at your site for their initial interview? Also, think about the many places where the exterior of your building will be used to judge your business as a whole: Pictures on your company’s Web site, images of your business in local listings and the image of your business taken by the media.
  • Improve your aesthetics. Imagine how much better you will feel about your home or your business if every time you drive up to it, you are reminded of the well-spent resources you dedicated to taking care of your building’s exterior. Our surroundings affect our moods, our social relationships, our productivity and our sense of security, and knowing that you’re walking into a building with a pleasant façade can make all the difference in the world.
