Masonry Repair & Design Projects

Table of Contents

Masonry is both a trade and an art. It involves more than just adhering block together using mortar: masonry is a mix of smart design, color matching, materials science, and the ability to repair bonded structures already in place. At Priddy Chimney, we firmly believe masonry is the one trade that mixes physics and sculpture, strength and design.

We have deep experience with clay brick, concrete block, and stone structures. Our repair expertise includes repointing (also known as “tuckpointing”) of deteriorated mortar joints, removal and replacement of cracked or distressed (sometimes called “spalling”) brick, as well as shelf angle and lintel replacement/restoration. We have done this for both historic and contemporary properties.

If it involves brick, block, or mortar, chances are we have project experience. Call us with your issues and let’s chat about the right masonry solution for you.

Masonry Repair Washington DC

When bricks freeze and thaw with the Washington area’s frequent seasonal temperature changes, they spall and crack. These compromised areas in turn leave your fireplace and appliance flues vulnerable to water intrusion and structural damage.
 
Signs commonly associated with damaged masonry:
 
  • Cracks, gaps, and holes in the mortar joints between the brick.
  • Cracked, popping, or spalling brick
  • Discolored brick (whitish covering, moss growth and or dark stains)
  • Leaning or a chimney separating from the wall
 
If you notice any of the above signs, call us to have your chimney evaluated and repaired. Our master masons can quickly diagnose the most efficient manner in which to restore your chimney.
