If you think you need brick patch repair, you have come to the right place. We offer a professional brick repair service to restore your home’s exterior to its former glory. If you have unsightly cracks and chips, we can make your brick look new again.
The first step to brick patch repair is figuring out exactly what the damage is. One of our professional brick masonry contractors will come to assess your brick’s damage. They will then make a recommendation of either brick patch repair, tuck-pointing, or brick replacement. The type of repair will depend on the extent and the nature of the damage. If your goal is only to perfect the aesthetic appearance of your bricks, we will likely go with a brick patch. Holes or chips in the mortar might require tuck-pointing. Brick replacement is for bricks with severe cracks or broken pieces.
If you are dealing with hairline cracks or slight erosion, you might not need to do any serious repair at all. If you see a crack and are wondering if you should make the call to our masonry contractors, try sticking a dime inside. If you can fit the dime in the crack, chances are water can seep through and damage your wall. If you cannot fit a dime inside the crack, you should be okay for now.
We have a vast inventory of bricks here at Omega Masonry. This means that we will almost always be able to find the brick you need to match your home. If we use brick dust from just any brick, your brick patch will stand apart from the rest of your brick. It might end up looking like an actual patch instead of a seamless repair. We do our best to find the brick dust that will provide a seamless, beautiful repair that you will barely notice.
If your mortar has to be repaired, our contractors will do this one step at a time. First, they will grind the mortar joints until they are at least five-eighths of an inch deep. The cavity will then be flushed of debris. The process is similar to that of filling a cavity. We will then wet the cavity and fill it with mortar. We are extremely careful about crafting our mortar formula. We do not use any unnecessary additives that could weaken the material.
Even if the damage to your brick wall does not affect its durability, cracks and chips can still be an eyesore. This might not be significant for day to day life, but you should definitely consider patching the chips and cracks before you sell your home. The exterior of your home is the first thing potential buyers will see. The street view is what draws people in as they pass by. You want to make your curb appeal as good as possible for an easy sale. One of the best ways to do so is to make your brick perfected and seamless with brick patch repair.
