Repair techniques include repointing of deteriorated mortar joints, removal and replacement of cracked or distressed brick, shelf angle and lintel replacement/restoration and the repair and installation of horizontal and vertical expansion joints to allow movement in masonry walls. Other solutions include installation of pins that tie masonry façades to structural backup, installation of thru-wall flashing and cleaning and preservation of masonry facades.
Repairs such as masonry tuckpointing can not only add years of service to a structure, but it can restore the original architectural aesthetics of the building envelope. Finding an appropriate mortar match assures performance and aesthetics. SSRG can assist you in securing a mortar analysis, as well as recommend materials and tooling techniques to match the mortar as closely as possible.

The team was exceptional. They collectively helped us to address a very difficult masonry project at our church which was built in 1901. When completed it was impossible to detect where the repairs were made. The entire team was fantastic to work with. Their craftsmanship was incredible. I also appreciate how respectful and accommodating they were to our church family/members.
