Exploring Masonry Repair
Many people don’t think about their masonry, others may not even know what
exactly the word masonry entails. That being said, we at Timonium Masonry
Repair wanted to help you explore what masonry is, what sorts of masonry repair
may need to be done, and if it would be a good option for you to consider getting
masonry repair done. Let’s take a closer look at all of these things here in this
What is Masonry?
Basically, masonry is referring to any material that is put together in units and
bound together with what is called mortar. Mortar is in short, the “glue” for these
sorts of things. There are a myriad of different materials that can be used in
masonry, including granite, brick, marble, limestone, concrete, glass, cast stone,
cob, travertine, and various other stones.
Masonry can be found in a number of types of architecture, but most often you
find them in residential and commercial buildings. If you live in an area where the
homes are of an older style, you may find that you live in a home that is made
from brick. If you have a sidewalk, that is generally concrete, and thus considered
to be masonry. Cobblestone walkways and marble countertops are considered to
be masonry as well. Basically, if it’s made out of a stone, it’s likely considered to
be some sort of masonry design.
What Types of Masonry Repair Would I Need?
Nothing lasts forever, and because of that, you’re going to encounter times where
you will have to get your masonry fixed. There are lots of different types of
masonry repair that you may encounter so let’s take a look at some of the most
- Cracks in concrete or marble. Cracks are a huge problem, especially in
areas that are used on a regular basis. These cracks can usually be fixed
quite easily, as long as you find them early enough.
- Crumbling bricks or bricks that have fallen out of their spots. Bricks don’t
always stay in place. The mortar may go bad, or weather may make it so
that your bricks aren’t able to stick around like they used to.
- Instability in a structure made from masonry. Some structures may start to
lean as time goes on, or they may start to lose stability.
- Renovations. Older buildings may need renovations or restoration in order
to pass inspections or to ensure that further problems won’t happen to the
structure in the future.
These are obviously not the only types of masonry repair that are out there, but
they are the most common ones that our Timonium Masonry Repair professionals
try to work with on a daily basis.
