It’s inevitable. The constant exposure to the ever-changing weather in the greater Chicagoland area will take its toll on even the sturdiest of brick homes. The mortar between the bricks or stone is usually the first to go, a victim of our freeze/thaw cycles and water erosion.
Fortunately, the tuckpointing professionals at Early Times Home Solutions can help with a free in-home consultation to discuss your options, wherever you are in Chicago or its suburbs.
There are some obvious signs of mortar failure in both old and new structures. These include:
- Mortar that easily crumbles when touched
- Visible cracks or voids in the mortar or bricks
- Large holes or missing chunks of brick or mortar
Repairing and replacing the mortar can dramatically improve the structural integrity of your home, as well as the overall appearance of the brick exterior. It can also prevent what looks like a small issue from becoming a huge problem.
