Restoring and repairing structures

Masonry is typically used for the construction of buildings and interior walls, and it offers numerous benefits. Concrete blocks have substantial compressive strength and their use helps to contribute to a building’s thermal properties and resistance to fire. Masonry proves to be cost-effective as it does not need to be treated aesthetically. This eliminates the time and expense of repeated coats of paint over the years, along with ensuring a consistent appearance. Furthermore, it is non-flammable and can withstand the impact caused by debris from severe storms and hurricanes.

Masonry can of course become vulnerable to the effects of time. Due to the power of its weight, it is extremely important to ensure that masonry is built on a considerably strong foundation. If structures are built on an inadequate base, the inevitable results are setting and cracking. Additionally, masonry can lose structural strength and become damaged by extreme weather conditions.
