What causes Mortar and Cracks in Brick Walls of your home?
Cracking in brick walling on your home or building is generally caused by either poor or insufficient foundations that are affected by ground movement which may / can have a number of causes such as excess moisture, drought or tree roots.
In a more modern brick building that brick/mortar cracking is often from a lack of or incorrectly placed control joints - vertical breaks in the brickwork -
The repair of these cracks through the mortar joint and often the brick on your home or building restoration itself can be costly and often have a short time frame before the crack reappears. The last thing the building restoration home/building owner needs is to have a dozen bricks that need replacing become 50 bricks that get replaced and paid for because of the brick repair persons inability to carry out the work correctly.
When we perform your home or building restoration work on the brickwork we use a system of brick removal that minimises the disruption to the brick walling, the main fabric, of your home or building with our restoration techniques. We then build in reinforcement thru those horizontal mortar joints, where possible 500mm each side of the brick/mortar cracking, strengthening the brickwork to a point that will require much more significant movement for the brickwork/mortar joint cracking to reappear in those locations.
Given our expertise in the re pointing of brickwork mortar joints we then re point the cracking with a mortar matching as well as possible the existing colour and finish.
Ideally after our work on brickwork cracking restoration that cracking and the bricks replaced will be barely noticeable.
