Re-Pointing Brickwork by a Masonry Contractor in Boston
Re-pointing is the most common restoration procedure performed on brick and stone buildings. Re-pointing brickwork is the process of removing old, worn and failing mortar joints and refilling them with new mortar. Fresh mortar will revitalize both the appearance and functionality of your property, so long as your re-pointing is performed with mortar that is compatible with both the age of your building and the materials that it is made of.
Replacing bricks and stones in masonry structures can be a challenging dilemma, without the right masonry contractor in Boston. Our team is connected with some of the foremost preservationists in the city as well as brickyards and the local historical society, so we have the resources to locate or recreate the bricks or stones that you will need to seamlessly replace your damaged or broken masonry units to make your building complete.
Chimney Building and Repair
Our team of masonry contractors in Boston specializes in building and repairing chimneys. So, if you are building a new home or renovating your house and would like to incorporate a fireplace into the design, let us know. And, if you have a chimney that is beginning to show signs of distress, give us a call immediately.
- Brick and stone chimneys weigh between 6 to 7 tons, so their construction must be carefully planned and performed, from the foundation in the basement to the mortar crown on the chimney top.
- Distressed chimneys need immediate attention, because if any of the masonry units have loosened, they can be responsible for devastating personal injuries and property damages.
Retaining Wall Construction and Repair Masonry Stone
Residential retaining walls are meant to prevent the erosion or collapse of banks of soil that abut or support residential properties. The size and type of retaining wall that you will need will always be dependent upon the mass of the soil that needs to be retained. Retaining walls can be integrated into your landscaping design and can even be constructed with built-in benches and fountains. Terraced walls can also be built, if you are working with a steep gradient. Terraced designs allow you to make the most of every usable square foot of your property, and they are ideal for patios and gardens.
Smaller, gravity-style retaining walls are relatively simple to construct, because they are typically only between 3 to 4 feet tall. Larger cantilever and anchored walls, however, often require the participation of an engineer, because of the loads that these barriers will be expected to retain.
If your home has shifted or settled and you’ve noticed some cracks or holes in your stucco, give us a call. Our team has the knowledge and experience to restore your stucco surfaces, from filling in the gaps to precisely matching the texture of your existing stucco. Stucco repairs do take approximately 8 days to complete, but this is because new stucco must be applied in layers – and each layer must be allowed to cure before another layer or the final coat of paint is applied.
Patio Paver Installation
Patio pavers are one of the most elegant ways to accessorize your home, whether you have a brick or stone home or a traditional Cape Cod shingled house. Available in a wide variety of colors and styles, you can use pavers to create backyard patios for summer relaxation and entertaining or walkways around your property to make getting around simpler and more convenient.
