There are two scenarios in which a building owner knows it’s time to repair bricks.
The first is obvious: bricks are crumbling, it becomes a safety hazard and an eyesore. The actual corner of your building might be falling apart like in the sample below.
Second, however, the building may be in need of brick repair even before it becomes apparent to the untrained eye. If your building is getting up there in age, it doesn’t hurt to have a brick restoration company visit and review what’s happening on your building. Hopefully, everything checks out and you can have them return in another few years. This would be little or no cost for most masonry companies, and you will have peace of mind knowing that you did your due diligence and were watching out for the safety and well-being of your tenants or employees.
We realize that the last thing you want is to discover another problem, so like going to the dentist, people avoid these spot checks quite often. The problem, of course, is that they eventually pick up the phone only when it’s too late, and there’s actual damage done. Their building is crumbling or bowing.
Still, do not worry. A quality company like Arrow Masonry can fix even very unsightly damage. Please don’t hesitate to contact us. We will discuss your situation at no cost and at the very least give you a quote so that you know what to look out for!
