7 Stanhope Road, Mont Albert.
Modern and New Homes Brickwork mortar joints are often damaged from the cleaning of the brick face on completion of the bricklaying.
This occurs because the cleaning process used is too brutal and/or the bricks are often laid with a mortar that does not comply with the Australian Standards. It is Cement and/or Lime weak.
We rake/cut back all of the mortar joints, re fill them with a compliant mortar coloured and tool finished to the clients choice.
Our cleaning process creates zero to absolute minimal joint deterioration. The end result is generally a home with the best looking Brickwork in the street with a full 20 year warranty on the brickwork/mortar joints.
What did this customer say?
The bricks on this project were laid with a cement/lime weak mortar that was non compliant with the Aust. Stds. This became evident when the traditional high pressure acid wash was completed and that mortar was severely damaged.
Mortar & Surface Restoration raked ALL of those joints back and re filled them with a compliant and colour matching off white mortar with the joints cut flush as was specified.
Thanks to their policy of hand washing the brick face as they proceed with the work there was zero damage created from the cleaning process and the brickwork went from the worst in the street to, by far, the best. Their professional approach, ability to complete the work within the required time frame and produce a clean `Just Laid` result combined with their 20 year full warranty put my and the home owners mind at ease.
