Garage Brick and Driveway Repair

Brick masonry is one of the tougher construction materials out there; that’s why you see so many modern homes built with bricks and mortar, or at least uses masonry in combination with another material such as aluminum siding. Unfortunately, just like everything else that’s part of a home, expect for sudden cracks to appear or crumbling to occur. These sorts of damage are often disregarded by Cincinnati homeowners as cosmetic, but they can also be the beginning signs of a more serious problem.

Water may be essential to living things, but it can be a nightmare when it gets where it shouldn’t in the house, masonry included. Mixed with cold weather, water can get into small cracks in the masonry, freeze, and expand, causing the cracks to grow larger and more serious. This is why it’s important to deal with those little cracks and so-called cosmetic damaged earlier rather than later.

Can You Perform a Masonry Repair Yourself?

Different sized cracks in walls and concrete blocks pose different sized problems, complicating a Cincinnati home’s masonry repair. Small, hairline cracks can be hard to spot and fill out but are no less important for it. For small cracks like that, using caulking compounds like silicone rubber is the way to go. Instead of a caulking gun, however, try opting for a paint brush with small but stiff bristles and push the rubber gel into the crack so that it’s as tightly packed as you can get it. This sort of approach only works with hairline cracks; larger cracks (anything more than 1/16th of an inch wide) often require a bit more expertise.

For large cracks in masonry, using a patching cement–a mixture of sand and cement that, when mixed with water, becomes a thick paste resembling wet concrete–is the best option. The masonry repair process on larger cracks like this takes a significant more time just for preparation, so make sure you don’t have too much to do the rest of the day. Before using your cement mix, make sure you’ve cleared out any loose or crumbling masonry around the crack. If possible, try to make the crack a little larger inside so that the mixer can be poured in and spread out nicely. Making the interior of the crack wet before pouring in the patching cement is also a good idea to make application simpler.
