TuckpointingTuckpointing is a precise, time consuming and labor intensive process that involves removing and replacing crumbling and missing mortar between stones, blocks and bricks. Tuckpointing prevents further deterioration due to moisture penetrating the failing joints and compromising the whole structure. Along with repair, we determine the cause of cracks and implement measures to prevent future damages.
Chimney Top repairsIs your chimney slowly deteriorating? This is often the result of poor craftsmanship that leads to pre-mature aging and cracking. Once cracks appear, water starts working it's way into the interior of the structure eroding it from the inside and creating more cracks and damage as time goes on. Luckily ADV Masonry can save your chimney for a fraction of the cost of total replacement. We will match bricks, replace the concrete cap, tuckpoint the affected area, and seal the entire surface. The required repairs all depend on the condition of your chimney. Contact us today for a free quote.
WaterproofingWaterproofing is a great insurance policy following restoration or repair. By waterproofing your newly repaired brick or stonework you will be prolonging the life of the work as well as ensuring dry interior walls. It's like double protection! Certain masonry materials soak in water and may get darker due to prolonged exposure to moisture, weather sealing will help prevent that effect. Prior to applying the sealant we may have to clean dirty surfaces.
