Restore the appearance and durability of your brick structure by brick restoration. The process includes brick and mortar repair, re-energizing the color of bricks and replacing loosen bricks. Masonry restoration and preservation is key to the life of a building.
Cracked Brickwork Repairs
Cracked brickworks not only unpleasant to look, it also affects the durability of your structure. It can be threatening if it will not be repaired. We have different methods for repairing cracks depending on their cause and location. First, we need to check if it is due to poorly-laid foundations, impact, corrosion, vibrations, and other factors. Once we identify that cause, we’ll choose the best method for the job and prevent pits or other damage in the future.
Mortar pointing, referred to as ground level-re pointing, brick pointing, tuckpointing and is a process of replacing and repairs damaged crumbling mortar between bricks. The technique aims to stop moisture rising up through the bricks or mortar.
Brick Chimney and Fireplace Repairs
We are experienced in the repairs of chimneys and fireplaces. Usually, they develop problems caused by environmental factors, age, or use.The most common shortcomings seen within the fireplace are gaps in brickwork, cracks, and weak mortar (usually in the back), with water infiltration usually resulting smoking into the room.Outdoor chimneys are prone to leaking, staining, and leaning, while interior fireboxes are prone to mortar loss.
Brick Arch Repairs
Loose brick or cast stone above the arch can be quite dangerous, and Mississippi Brick Masonry has developed many repairs techniques that are very effective at preventing damage—even on the most difficult arch failures.Some arrangements might include changing the dimensions of the arch, reinforcing the cavity inside the arch for better structural support, or removing the arch in favor of a simple flat opening. Others might simply have lintels supporting weight above instead.
Brick Mailboxes Repairs
If you have a mailbox that has been destroyed or completely damaged, or your mailbox has been hit by a car, that mailbox is unlikely to be repaired. If your mailbox is not completely destroyed, only bricks missing or if your receptacle has rust on it might just need some minor repairs. If there is a chance of regrowth or re-assembly, then it’s probably more profitable and time-effective to repair the existing structure.

Brick Color Restoration
One of the main concerns of the building owner is the appearance of the bricks. Because brick and mortar are vulnerable to collecting excessive moisture, dirt, pollution and other contamination sources over time, deterioration can begin to take a toll on a building’s appearance from weather damage.In some cases, the bricks’ color may begin to fade before there are concerns with the structural integrity. Fortunately, brick color can be restored by pressure washing, cleaning and scrubbing the bricks to remove all contaminants. There are several methods a skilled brick restoration company can use that include using stains to ensure perfect color for all bricks.

We, as a brick restoration experts can remove a loose brick like this and replace it without compromising any of the other bricks around them.
