Check Your Brickwork
Generally, brickwork requires very little maintenance, but it's still important to perform regular inspections of it in the spring. By tackling these matters in a timely way you will extend the life of your brickwork. Brickwork maintenance includes:
  • Cleaning the brickwork.
  • Addressing any powdery substance on the surface of the brick (efflorescence) if it's found. It's a symptom that the brick is absorbing water instead of resisting it.
  • Reapply sealants when needed.
  • Seal joints between bricks if necessary.
  • Replace any bricks that are damaged.
