Foundations are the most important part of your home. That is what your structure is based upon. When your foundation needs repair it can become very costly.
At custom masonry we look for the most cost effective solutions for foundation repair. The biggest challenge is finding ways to fix these problems permanently and cost effective for your budget.
We do large foundation repairs and smaller repairs
We do exterior and interior parging. Which includes color matching of existing parging. Parging is only a cosmetic aspect of your home not a structural one. Parging on older homes should be addressed by fastening galvanized wire mesh and a special cement mix that includes bonding agents.
We restore heritage building commercial and residential. Whether it’s a rebuild or simply removing the old mortar and re-pointing new mortar. We colour match and also choose the right mortar for the right situation.
Modern masonry structures utilizes the strength and rigidity of hydraulically acting cements – most commonly, Portland cement – to form large monolithic unites, using engineered foundations to control settlement and allowing movement along protected control joints. For such structures – rigid panels acting independently of the load-bearing framework – a hard mortar is usually appropriate.
Older masonry structures – pointed in relatively weak lime-rich mortars – act sacrificially to preferentially absorb stresses and, through re-deposition in our slightly acidic rainfall, to heal stress – induced fissures.
Cleaning methods generally are divided into three major groups: water, chemical, and abrasive. Water methods soften the dirt or soiling material and rinse the deposits from the masonry surface. Chemical cleaners react with dirt, soiling material or paint to effect their removal, after which the cleaning effluent is rinsed off the masonry surface with water. Abrasive methods include blasting with grit, and the use of grinders and sanding discs, all of which mechanically remove the dirt, soiling material or paint (and, usually, some of the masonry surface).
