Professional Cracked Brick Repair Services
Cracked brick can be repaired, but it is crucial to address the underlying cause of the damage before attempting any cosmetic repairs. A crumbling or cracking brick façade often indicates water infiltration and foundation issues that must be resolved first. Once the underlying problem is fixed, our Mt. Juliet brick repair experts will make sure your façade looks as good as new. We'll discuss our approach to brick wall repair and mortar restoration below.
Tuckpointing: Mortar Repair Services
After restoring a home's structural integrity through proper foundation repair, it is essential to replace any damaged mortar using a technique called "tuckpointing" or "repointing." Simply patching over splitting walls or cracked bricks will leave your home vulnerable to water penetration, resulting in a temporary cosmetic fix that will eventually fail.
Our skilled masons use tuckpointing to fill gaps between mortar and brick by chiseling out the existing, damaged mortar and adding new cement. The new material is color-coordinated to match the brick, ensuring a seamless and natural-looking repair. In severe cases, our Mt. Juliet tuckpointing experts will remove damaged or cracked bricks and replace them with new, matching bricks. This process not only restores the appearance of a foundation or façade but also protects your home from the elements.
At United Structural Systems, tuckpointing is included with foundation repair and is not a stand-alone service. We prioritize our customers' satisfaction and long-term solutions over temporary fixes. If you notice cracking or other brick issues, contact us for a free estimate on your home's foundation.
Garage Lintel Failure and Repair
Garage lintels, typically made of metal and covered by exterior bricks, are often the longest in a house and can span up to 18 feet across. These long lintels are particularly susceptible to failure over time due to the significant weight they must support. Early signs of garage lintel failure include cracked bricks or exterior walls above the garage opening. As the damage progresses, the lintel may begin to visibly sag.
Lintel failure is commonly caused by faults such as steel corrosion. When combined with the weight they must bear, this can lead to sagging over time. Cracked bricks or exterior walls resulting from the shifting lintel will further exacerbate the problem by exposing it to the elements.
How is Garage Lintel Repair Performed?
Our team can supplement the support of a lintel and repair it. After installing support props, we remove the bricks and excess mortar around the lintel and repair it. Typically, lag bolts are installed, and then the bricks and mortar are replaced.
If you have a cracked or sagging garage door frame, contact United Structural Systems to see if you need help from our Mt. Juliet lintel repair professionals. We're committed to providing high-quality services and ensuring your home's structural integrity for years to come.
