Preparation and Planning
One of the most important aspects of any masonry restoration project is the preparation. In order to successfully complete the task at hand, we need to inspect the site to see what we’re up against. Once we see the extent of the damage that needs restoring, we will develop a plan to restore your building in the safest possible manner. True craftsmen understand that there are risks involved in every restoration project, not just for the laborers but for any visitors or people passing by. By making sure that we are operating within the necessary safety regulations at all times, we can proceed with our work with confidence.
Once we have developed a plan and prepared the site for the restoration process, the next step involves preparing the joints for restoration. We start by cutting the joints back with a diamond or carbide blade, cutting down on labor and leaving the brick or block damage free.
The Right Mortar Mixture
Mortar performs many functions within a wall system. It is the cushion between the units, it is the weather resistant barrier and it keeps the strength of the unit. Given its important purpose, it is important to note that not all mortar mixtures are made equal. Your building is unique and therefore its mortar needs are unique as well.
This is where Zaps Masonry Contracting’s experienced masonry professionals are such a huge asset. They can quickly identify the right mixture your building needs to restore its strength and beauty for years to come.
