Brick Repair Dallas-Fort
area has a large need for companies that repair the broken brick and mortar
around homes. This need for brick repair is in large part due to the soil here
in the Dallas area. Some other factors are the elements of weather that affect
The soils in and around the Dallas-Fort Worth area are typically expansive.
Some of them can expand as much as seven times the size from dry to wet. This
will obviously work in reverse as the soil dries out from being hydrated. As the
moisture in the soil increases or decreases, it is important to maintain an even
balance around the slab, and under it. If areas are allowed to become more dry
or moist than others, it may cause upheavals and/or
subsidence in the slab of
the home. This movement in the slab will cause uneven pressures in the brick.
This results in cracking in the brick and mortar of the home because the masonry
siding has a very limited amount of elasticity unlike the
sheetrock and other
materials used in the home.
The weather elements in this area play a large role. The summers are hot and
dry, and allow the perimeter of homes to sink. Other times of the year are very
wet with the rain and thunder-storms. This becomes a problem when there is not
proper drainage, and areas become moister than others. Also, with the
Thunder-storms, this region gets lots of hail. Hail causes a number of issues
with the brick. It knocks brick loose, and breaks off the faces of brick. In
addition, these heavy rains will erode the mortar in areas, and eventually
weaken the brick wall.
All of these issues cause serious problems for the brick, and require
repairs to be performed.
Brick repair will restore the structure, value, and
beauty of your home. However, a lack of maintenance can result in more extensive
damage, higher costs, and many serious concerns.
