ARLINGTON MASONRY REPAIR
Quality Stone Work from Experienced Craftsmen in Falls Church, McLean & the Surrounding Areas
Northern Virginia and the metro D.C. areas are known for great-looking masonry, but time and the elements can cause your landscape to fall into disrepair. Cracked or crumbling stone, missing mortar, and discoloration will degrade its look and often accelerate the rate of future property damage. If people are walking on these stones, then this damage may also cause safety hazards. When you need Arlington masonry repairs, Painter Roofing and Construction has the solution to restore your landscape and make it better than ever. While we are repairing your chimney, let us take a look at your gutters as well to ensure they aren’t in need of repair.
Our certified and licensed masonry repair team can work on the following structures:
- Outdoor kitchens
- Fireplaces and fire pits
The Freeze & Thaw Effect
Masonry in Arlington is particularly susceptible to the “freeze and thaw” effect due to our unpredictable climate. Small cracks from natural erosion are exacerbated when water flows in from the rain or melting ice and snow. When the temperature falls back below 32°F at night, this water freezes and expands, forcing the cracks wider and eventually breaking the bonding altogether.
Our masonry restoration services fix these problems using a variety of techniques depending on the structure and the extent of the damage. By the time we have finished cleaning up from the job, your masonry will be beautiful and functional once again. This form of general contractor service requires a high level of skill, so when you need work done the right way, trust professionals who have been doing it for decades.
We can handle any type of masonry repair, including:
- Brick or stone replacement – With our expert roofing repair, we will make sure that any broken brick or stone we find is replaced properly.
- Crack repairs – If you notice cracks in your fireplace, it’s important to call our expert Arlington masonry repair team. By adding store bought mortar and trying to fix it yourself, can end up causing more harm than good.
- Repointing and tuck-pointing Our chimney repair technicians will make sure when repointing that the damaged mortar is removed and replaced properly and our tuckpointing uses the correct mortar to match the bricks and is blended seamlessly.
- Chimney rebuilding – We provide expert and reliable chimney rebuilds and will make sure that your fireplace is restored back to it’s former glory.
