How Can You Use a Brick Expansion Joint for Wall Repair?

When you renovate a landmark building or office building, there are a lot of considerations. One consideration should be the brick and mortar. It can be disappointing to find cracked mortar joints. Brick expansion joints help battle the degrading effects of moisture.

What Is the Problem With Cracked Mortar Joints?

A cracked or deteriorated mortar joint will not only decrease your building’s curb appeal, but it can leave your building open for water damage. Water can enter the structure through the cracks and cause mold and other types of structural damage.

Can You Fix Cracked Mortar Joints?

To eliminate cracks in brick buildings, you can use a brick expansion joint. These joints prevent cracking due to expansion in different temperatures. To repair a cracked mortar joint, contractors can use a process known as brick tuck pointing. To do this, a contractor will fill the damaged joint with mortar. Now, to keep it aesthetically pleasing, the mortar has to match the mortar around it. Essentially, the contractors will remove deteriorated mortar with a vacuumed grinder.

When your building has cracked mortar joints, it doesn’t only look bad but it can leave your building vulnerable to water damage. Adriatic Restoration provides repair with a brick expansion joint for landmark buildings, office buildings, hi-rises, apartments and commercial buildings.
