Brick Repair Services In Your Area

"It is with deep satisfaction that I recommend Grady’s Painting and Plastering & Construction. Mr. George Grady is a skilled craftsman. He was hired to correct long neglected and extensive masonry and window issues on a large, beautiful Presbyterian Church built in the Civil War era in Philadelphia. The property was neglected with only minimal maintenance performed over the last 40+ years. The building was in severe decline and in need of stabilization and restoration on many fronts. Cracked ledge plates were chipped out and reestablished, internal walls damaged by leakage were broken out and repaired, brickwork was repointed and in severe cases reestablished to original strength and beauty. Leaks around the base of the building were addressed to stabilize deterioration of the foundation. Large rotted window sills under beautiful stained glass windows were restored after significant masonry reestablishment due to water damage under the rotted out sills. Broken and missing stained glass windows are in the process of repair and replacement. The process started with new metal frames cast by Mr. Grady. The new frames will hold clear painted replications of the original stained glass, also crafted by Mr. Grady. Regular windows all around the church and manse were also repaired and restored. Roof leaks were accurately identified and repaired. A sagging plaster ceiling has been torn out and restored. All this work was done by Mr. Grady alone or with an occasional helper. He worked with care, expertise and respect for the original structure. The results far exceeded our expectations and have injected new life into a building on the brink. This building, owned by the Presbytery of Philadelphia, now houses a new urban ministry in a newly gentrifying area of the city. We are happy to have had the good fortune to be connected to Grady’s Painting and Plastering & Construction by Service Magic."

Masonry, brick stone, and concrete, may develop issues over time. Being exposed to the weather, a simple crack can become a larger crack or start to deteriorate. Settling or shifting can cause joints to separate. And even age can affect the integrity of your masonry.

When these problems occur, it's important to contact masonry repair contractors in your area as quickly as possible. Getting issues repaired early on can help maintain the integrity of your structure.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know a mason is right professional to hire for my project?

Masons work with several different materials that require mortar to pull them together. These materials include:

  • Brick
  • Concrete block
  • Glass block
  • Tile
  • Terra cotta
  • Stone

If your home has these materials and you notice symptoms of wear and tear, a masonry repair contractor is the right professional to call.

What are signs I need masonry work done?

There are several symptoms of masonry problems that should be handled by a professional. These include:

  • Doors, cabinets and windows that don’t close correctly
  • Cracks in plaster or drywall
  • Uneven floors
  • Cracks in basement or other concrete floors
  • Visible holes or cracks in brick

It's bad for your home to ignore these problems. Water can easily get into small cracks or holes. When water freezes, it expands and makes the holes larger. Over time, this can weaken your entire property. Waiting to fix the problem makes repairs more extensive - and expensive - down the line.

How much does it cost to hire a contractor for masonry repair or restoration?

The average cost of brick repair work is about $1,400, or between $700 and $2,200. Price changes based on materials used. Other cost factors include extent of the damage and labor.

What should I look for when hiring a masonry repair contractor?

Research reputable masons in your area. Find out what type of repair work they do, and if they’ve worked on a project like yours before. Other questions to ask include:

  • How many years have you worked as a mason?
  • How do you charge?
  • Can I see an itemized bid?
  • How big is your team?
  • What is your timeline?
  • How much time do you need to complete the project?
  • Do you have references I can contact?
  • Do you provide proof of license, insurance and customer satisfaction guarantee?
