Masonry Restoration Before & After

  • Before: Deflected masonry caused parapet wall to lean.
    After: The parapet wall was completely rebuilt with new brick, to a sound and stable condition.
  • Before: A truck backed into this I-beam causing it to shift.
    After: The I-beam had to be moved back into place and the masonry reset.
  • Before: This parapet wall was bowing and spalling so nothing short of rebuilding would do.
    After: After the rebuilding process the wall is level and plumb with all new masonry.
  • Before: Deteriorating brick and mortar on the top 4' of the parapet wall.
    After: The top 4' of the parapet wall was ground out then tuckpointed will brick replacement where necessary.
  • Before: Porch walls buckling and bowing because of the faulty concrete stoop set inside.
    After: All walls, columns and limestone railings had to be rebuilt/reset.
  • Before: The top portion of this parapet wall had bowed so badly a portion of it fell down.
    After: The parapet wall was rebuilt to a sound and secure condition.
  • Before: The brick on these firewalls and parapet walls were severely spalled and damaged due to surface abrasion and moisture penetration.
    After: These walls were rebuilt using new SW rated face brick providing a new, structurally sound bond between the masonry and mortar.
  • Before: The porch walls and limestone balustrade were collapsing due to improper drainage and neglect.
    After: Arrow rebuilt the porch walls matching the original brick then cleaned and reset the original limestone balustrade.

Penetrating moisture not only weakens the mortar that bonds the masonry units together, it also promotes premature deterioration of brick. If moisture finds its way into a defect on the brick and freezes, it will 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. Arrow works with a variety of brick suppliers to insure you the closest match to your existing brick when masonry repair is required.

Arrow provided assistance in determining the problems with the masonry work at the fire station. Scheduling was excellent and they were there when they said they would be there. Excellent clean up… Kept job site in good order… Would rehire for other projects!”

“I just wanted to let you know how pleased we are with the work your company did for us. The masonry at the front entrance looks wonderful. It’s a pleasure to sit in the backyard and not have to watch the garage crumble right in front of us. Best of all, the cleaning up afterward was superb. The crew swept the patio and the garage far cleaner than it ever had been. I was pleased and surprised when I came home that evening and drove into such a well-swept garage. We really appreciate the way in which the workers did their jobs. We would be happy to serve as a reference for your company in the future.
