Avoiding Problems in Masonry Construction

Masonry is at the core of our infrastructure, with most older buildings constructed using stone or brick. As these structures continue to age, masonry issues are bound to occur. Brick spalling, deterioration of mortar, sandstone erosion, algae growth, and efflorescence are the most frequent challenges causing aesthetic, waterproofing, and even safety concerns.
