We use products that we know are safe for the stone now and in the future. Depending on our clients wishes, we can clean the masonry so that it looks as good as new or we can maintain a rustic appeal.
Tuckpointing – Mortar is essential to many forms of masonry. It is the glue which holds bricks together. Mortar is a tough material but not as tough as the brick it holds. Since it is made of a mix of cement and sand it will slowly erode due to the weather and as the small amount of water in it dries out. When this happens more of the bricks will be exposed and the strength of the wall will be compromised. Tuckpointing in the process of adding new mortar to the brick, ensuring a safe future.
Waterproofing – Do you want to protect your masonry? Water damage will slowly eat away at the surface of your brickwork. To prevent this, City Suburb, Inc. can add a protective waterproof coating to the exterior, adding to its longevity and value.
