Protecting Your Masonry From The Weather

Masonry Building Restoration

The Construction building restoration specialists agree that if it is not properly protected, a construction will require premature repairs – repairs for which the owner may pay considerable amounts of money, depending on the damaged elements.

In the case of a house under construction, the various uncovered structural elements, such as supporting pillars, must be protected to prevent rust and degradation. In addition, it is advisable that the walls be insulated with polystyrene as quickly as possible and protected with plastic foil. If no action is taken, the water will infiltrate between bricks, causing them to remain wet for many years.

In the case of a finished house, masonry has to be protected with adequate siding.

Most common types of siding

  • Stucco

Typically a mixture of cement and sand, or cement and lime, Stucco is applied all over the house, to protect it from the elements. Stucco is versatile: simple or textured, allowing the application on any surface and in various shapes. It can also be painted in any color.

  • Concrete

Concrete is obtained from cement, gravel, sand and water, mixed in various proportions. It hardens when dry and creates a durable home exterior.

  • Vinyl

Vinyl is currently the most popular siding material due to its price, durability, low maintenance and versatility.

  • Natural materials (wood, stone)

Very beautiful and resistant as siding materials, wood and stone add a sense of traditional charm to any home.
