Moisture is the enemy of brick. If it finds its way into brick, the freezing and thawing cycle will cause the brick to spall. When this happens, the brick offers no structural support to the masonry wall. The problem quickly spreads to surrounding brick. Cutting out the damaged brick and replacing it is the correct brick repair. Chicago brick repairs are usually completed on brick that is exposed to the elements because they tend to deteriorate first. Inspect parapet walls, chimneys, brick fencing and steps routinely for damage. Shamrock Tuckpointing has more than 30 years of experience in Chicago brick repair and brick replacement and understands a building owner’s concerns for a seamless brick repair. •Insured and Bonded •A+ Rating from the Better Business Bureau •30+ Years of Experience •Serving Chicago and Suburbs
