What Points should consider for Exterior Masonry Repair

slide 2:

Introduction One of the most crucial points to be considered while planning for the home renovation is that of exterior masonry repair. The total work for outside wall repair consists of working with brick glass block terra cotta concrete block tiles and stone mixed with cement in an appropriate proportion.

slide 3:

Damaged Cement As the active fillers between the bricks start to get fragile the masonry begins to strike against each other resulting in extreme damage and deformation. The cost of exterior masonry repair will get very high. The plaster can be strengthened whereby the existing cement is cut to a matching height.

slide 4:

This kind of gap caused by a natural expansion of the building and does not have any impact on the collapsing of masonry. During heavy rainfall the water leaks to these micro-cracks causing the bricks to bulge out. Vertical Angle Cracks

slide 5:

Breaking of the Masonry Support To divide the weight of the bricks between the house and ground a shelf-angle or an elongated L-shaped metal is inserted behind the layer of blocks on the wall. This L-shaped metal carries all the weight of the house and the accompanying concrete. Chipping the bricks around the shelf-angle is not a good alternative as this will destroy the angle behind them depending on the sturdiness of the masonry and surrounding soil.

slide 6:

The damp distorts the structure and force the bricks to push outwards. The mason will judge the amount of decay beneath the blocks change any soggy bricks with new ones or restore the total portion of the outside wall. Bulging Brick

slide 7:

Compressed Brick The building will display squeezed bricks that have lost their proper shapes and seems to poke out or form fissures. Here the deformed blocks form gaps through which the water gets inside and even more it affects the adjoining bricks negating the adequate pressure they need to stay in the structure.
