Brick and Stone Patio Repairs
Brick and stone patios add a touch of elegance to any home, providing an appealing outdoor space for relaxation and entertainment. However, due to exposure to the elements and regular wear and tear, these patios may require some upkeep. Essential repair services include grouting of mortar, repointing, replacement of deteriorated units, and application of water repellents.
Grouting of Mortar and Repointing
Grouting involves filling gaps between bricks or stones with mortar, a mixture of sand, cement, and water. Over time, this mortar can deteriorate, leading to loose bricks or stones that can make your patio unsafe. When this happens, it's crucial to repoint the patio, a process that involves removing the deteriorated mortar and replacing it with new mortar.
Replacement of Deteriorated Units
Occasionally, individual bricks or stones on your patio may deteriorate or become damaged. This damage can compromise the integrity of your patio and should be addressed promptly. The process involves carefully removing the damaged unit and replacing it with a new one that matches the existing masonry.
Water Repellent Application
Water is one of the most significant threats to masonry. It can cause deterioration and discoloration and lead to freeze-thaw damage in colder climates. Applying a high-quality water repellent to your brick or stone patio can help protect it from these issues.

In conclusion, brick and stone patio repairs are essential for maintaining the safety, beauty, and functionality of your outdoor space. By entrusting your patio repair needs to experienced contractors like Alliance Restoration, you can enjoy your beautiful outdoor space for years to come.
