Preparing Your Building for Fall – W&M Tuckpointing & Masonry Contractors Chicago, IL
Outdoor areas to check
It is best to check the exterior walls for major cracks or openings since it’s an important task that will prepare your building for the cold months. Plants or grass should be graded so that the water and ice do not form a pool in your building.
Doing this will avoid costly masonry repairs in Chicago later on. We don’t need any more bad news this season, right?
If you find or notice any cracks in exterior walls, make sure to contact our masonry contractors. We’ll remove your cracked, broken, and/or spalled masonry and replace it with masonry that will look and function as good as new.
Restore any deteriorating structures
Fall is the best time to take care of any chemical cleaning, rebuilding, replacement, and tuckpointing that needs to be done on your building. W&M Tuckpointing & Masonry Contractors use new and salvaged materials based on the integrity of your old materials to recreate the original style of your building. Our masonry contractors in Chicago can give your structures a new look, from a terra cotta facade on a 100-year-old building to a 40-year-old building with water damages.
Get your tuckpointing done now.
When your building is due for tuckpointing work, the best season to get it done is during fall and spring in the Chicago area. If you choose to do tuckpointing during the winter, it is best to get the job done before the heavy snow comes.
We are one of the tuckpointing companies in Chicago that repair mortar joints in masonry walls of your commercial or residential building by grinding out mortar joints to a depth of 3/4″.
