How Often Should You Have Your Masonry Inspected?

Connecticut masonry brick wall maintenance

Masonry has the reputation of being stronger than other building structures. There is a number of ways by which you can evaluate how serious the damage is and what steps need to be taken.

Cracking is a natural phenomenon for brick structures. It comes from the material moving, shrinking or settling. However, some cracks may be more serious than other cracks. Longer cracks can signal more dangerous problems. At the same time, regardless of the exact size of the crack, it can let moisture in, which is enough to cause damage to your entire building.

Apart from cracks, there are also secondary signs such as foundation shifting or moving in any way. Some other clear indicators of damage would be doors or windows which open or close difficultly. All these should be addressed in due time, so as to avoid any further damage to your home or commercial property.

The frequency of Connecticut masonry maintenance practices typically depends on the exact type of masonry. But keeping your bricks in good state is very important not only for your safety, but also for preserving the beauty of your living or working environment. Ideally, you should closely inspect your masonry every month or at least every two months.
