Masonry Repair and Restoration for a Variety of Substrates
Masonry repair and restoration typically begins with the removal of failed masonry elements, followed by cutting and repointing of mortar joints, and structural enhancement of any concrete surfaces. Any failed elements are then replicated or repaired and replaced.
Once the masonry areas are cleaned, extensive testing of the masonry and mortar joints is done using the RILEM test method. Test areas of clear sealers are applied and then retested to determine which product is best suited for the particular situation.
On concrete surfaces where carbon dioxide and air pollutants lower the protective alkalinity around the reinforcing steel, the Alpha Team may apply anti-carbonation coatings to protect and enhance an existing structure.
In our history-rich area of the country, many older buildings require the replication of intricate decorative elements - a specialty for which the Alpha team has earned an outstanding reputation.
