Brickwork Installation And Replacement
We provide brick installation contractor services in Montreal and surroundings. Any masonry on a property makes a bold statement, but if your brickwork is damaged, it can devalue or possibly cause structural issues to your property. Broken brick or loose brick can be caused by changes in the weather. Hot, cold, wet and dry conditions can cause the structure to move, leaving holes in the mortar. Walls, chimneys, porches and of course the complete exteriors that are built with bricks present an aura of strength, endurance, longevity. Unfortunately like the vast majority of construction materials, bricks do not last forever, as even the strongest of these will be subject to deterioration over time.
If the brickwork is damaged, it might not just be damaging the home’s appearance it could also be letting more moisture penetrate the home and might compromise the structural integrity. The damage to the bricks can be manifested in many ways which may require the brick to be replaced.

- Loose or missing bricks

It also presents certain challenges as it is important that the new replaced brick matches with the rest of the structure, especially when it’s inside the wall of the home. The age of the brick and its manufacturing will determine on how easy or difficult a replacement will be possible. For old residential and commercial properties, replacing old brick will be challenging and some work will need to be involved to try different brick suppliers in the area where the bricks were originally manufactured or old yards.
