Brick Wall Repairs Silver Spring
Brick wall repairs are intended to address your broken brick walls that have toppled over or have bricks loose and could be potentially dangerous to others or your outdoor surroundings. Our brick wall repairs are intended to not only protect the integrity of your infrastructure and your safety, but to also save you money on expensive replacements. Replacing an entire brick wall will cost you much more than if you had only replaced the damaged bricks. Brick wall repairs Silver Spring can help you achieve this and can give you lasting and durable repairs that continue to prolong the lifespan of your brick walls.
Infrastructure repair is done when your brick wall has been severely damaged or hit with blunt force and caused several of the bricks to come loose or the mortar to crack in between them. What happens more than not, is that the bricks will break off in whole bricks, rather than in fractions. This makes our job to repair a brick wall slightly easier because all we need to do is chip away at the remaining mortar that’s left and reapply new bricks in the position of the old ones and with a new layer of mortar.
Stairs and Steps
Brick stairs and steps are created in a similar fashion to standard brick walls. They incorporate bricks and mortar being laid on top of each other but arranged in a different patterns to achieve the step building formation. However, it’s not uncommon for foot traffic or shipments or heavy items to affect the edges of stairs and loosen bricks over time. When this does happen and you leave the brick neglected, it could result in tripping or falling when walking on stairs. Placing the brick back into place is as easy as installing them to begin with.
Another popular trend that we often see is the building of brick mailbox structures. Clients often desire a mailbox that’s not flimsy or made from thin metal like the traditional ones that are prone to scratches and dents. Instead, a brick mailbox structure is built in a block-like shape and houses the mailbox itself inside of the brick box. Brick mailboxes are completely solid, so the probability of a car knocking one over is fairly slim. Furthermore, we can customize brick mailboxes by adding painted brick or flowerbed attachments to complement your landscape.
Painted Brick Touch-ups
If you have a painted brick wall that’s begun to chip or the paint has started to peel, we can help you with the minor (or major) touchups to your paint. To paint your brick thoroughly and in between the cracks and crevices, we begin by using a latex primer that serves as a concealer base for the paint by hiding any scratches in the brick or discoloration. It also acts as a glue for the paint to avoid premature chipping or fading. Once completed, your brick is then ready to be painted with a latex or acrylic color paint of your choosing.
