How Do You Protect Your Masonry from Severe Weather Changes?

Protecting New Connecticut Masonry Work

Weather changes are some of the most problematic factors that can lead to damaging a building or any type of structure that uses masonry. Regardless of how well-designed it was, the masonry in question still isn’t made to last forever. Sooner or later, without proper care and maintenance, it can lose the battle of the elements and require a complete makeover in the end.


To prevent that, it’s important to take a few steps to protect your masonry from severe weather changes:


  1. One of the first things you can do is hire a dependable mason who is well-acquainted with modern methods for keeping newly constructed Connecticut masonry protected. In most cases, they will suggest covering the masonry with a special type of weather-resistant coating for 24 hours after the masonry work was completed.
  2. If the bricklaying work associated with a masonry project is not yet completed, and the temperature drops below 3 Celsius degrees, it’s important to stop and resume again when the temperature increases to more than 3 degrees.
  3. A freshly laid brick wall can also be protected from a sudden downpour by using terpaulin sheets. Make sure you check the weather forecast on a regular basis, and lay out the sheets whenever the forecast predicts rainfall.
