Brick and mortar restoration
We use an industry-surpassing compound that provides seamless repair work to cracked, stained or damaged brick, mortar or cast stone. Traditional mortar is rated at 750 psi; our product is rated at 4200 psi. Our masonry products have a bonding agent that allows us to create a solid bond to the existing brick and mortar without tear out. Our process is to remove any loose or damaged mortar, apply a bonding product that soaks in and adheres to the surface, then repoint with our proprietary masonry mortar, which also has a bonding agent. This create an amazing repair that when we finish we then go about creating exact color matches to the mortar and brick.
Artistic Masons does not provide a warranty on brick and mortar repair or cast stone because of our clay soil in the North Texas area. The soil will shrink with drought and swell with the rain which in turn creates ground shifting. This very often causes cracks in brick, mortar and foundations. However, we can return for a Trip Charge if the cracks reappear where we did repairs. We do provide a 20 year warranty on White Washed bricks.
