Masonry Repair: Matching the Mortar
Brick homes are beautiful and will last for many years without needing a great deal of maintenance. However, there are occasions when the mortar made need to be repaired because of age, storm damage or perhaps because someone has backed into it. In these cases, brick repair should be done sooner rather than later. Our expert masonry team offers the perfect solution for those who face damaged mortar in need of brick repair.
Of course, for many homeowners there is a concern that in doing brick repairs it will be difficult, if not impossible, to match the existing mortar. After all, we have all seen homes where the mismatched mortar stands out from the original. However, that does not have to be the case. A skilled masonry team knows how to match mortar so that the repair is nearly hidden from view.
While there are some homeowners who have been successful in matching mortar, it is not typically a job that you should approach unless you understand the types of mortars, and how they interact with various sands. For instance, if you meander down the aisle of a home improvement store you will discover there is a rather wide range of colors. For mortar, you will find not just the expected white, but also varying shades of grey, tans, black, and even some with an orange hue. These colors can be used individually, or mixed together to create a mortar that will match your existing color. Hiring a TX masonry expert ensures that the mortar color will be as close a match as possible.
The good news is that once the bricks needed for the repair have been located, and the mortar has been matched, getting the brick repair done is usually not a difficult, nor lengthy process. In fact, often times minor mortar and brick repairs can be made in just a few days. However, it should be noted, that when the repair has first been made that the new mortar will remain slightly darker than the original mortar, but within a couple of weeks it will blend in with the rest of the wall, and the damage will be nothing more than a memory.
Of course, it is not just a matter of matching the mortar in a Texas home – it is also important to match the brick. If you have a newer home this can be much easier, while older homes often have bricks that are no longer produced. In these cases, a masonry expert will find bricks that match as closely as possible or perhaps find a way to work with the existing bricks.
The Omega Masonry team understands how important it is for your Texas home’s brickwork to match. We will make your mortar and brick repairs in such a way that the only way they will be remembered is by you – not because they are an eyesore.
