How Much Does Brick Repair Cost?

This is the most common question we are asked. In order to answer this question, we must tell you a little about masonry repair.
When preparing to repair masonry mortars and cracks, the mortar used for repair must match the original mortar. While this sounds easy enough, it is far more challenging than you might expect. Matching to an original mortar can only be done through extensive mortar testing performed by a qualified mortar testing lab. The testing lab must be able to test hardened mortars to determine their composition and mortar type. If the mortar type is not matched, the new mortar can cause further damage or not bond into the mortar joints of your wall.
This is why the official guidelines of masonry restoration specify the need for mortar analysis and matching, and that it is done through compliance with certain ASTM testing standards.
As these are the regulated guidelines of the industry, they would carry over into inclusion with the sale of any repaired property. Should a repair be performed that doesn't properly match and/or without the report from a testing lab specifying an appropriate repair mortar, the seller of such a property could likely be forced to re-purchase the property.
For all of these reasons, mortar testing is required before any repair can be performed to the masonry. You will notice the AMR Mortar Testing Labs logo proudly displayed on our site as they provide the most complete analysis and most usable information of any testing lab we have used.
The cost of mortar analysis is $350.00 and then the color match is $150.00 making a total of $500.00 for the tests alone. Then there is the purchase of materials and job costs. AMR Labs produces bags of custom mortar at a cost of $60.00 per box. The average repair project uses 2-6 boxes of custom mortar. If your project is small, you are looking at an additional $120.00 for 2 boxes of mortar. Then, we finally get to our own mobilization, labor, and other charges.
The total before we charge any is $620.00 for lab testing and proper repair mortars custom made for your project. Most repair projects price between $695.00 - $1295.00. If there is brick replacement or excessive damage or deterioration, the price may be higher.
