Masonry is usually an extremely durable type of building construction. But the quality of workmanship, the materials utilized, and the pattern on which the structures are constructed, can greatly affect the longevity of the masonry structure. As time passes, masonry buildings can start to show signs of aging. When this occurs, fine design masonry can be used to help protect masonry structures from the effects of time. These services can include but are not limited to, the repair of broken windows, or plumbing, as well as the sealing or refinishing of exterior surfaces that may have been weakened by weather exposure. Masonry can also be repaired for aesthetic reasons, such as to bring the building into closer harmony with its surroundings.
