Crumbling or Chipped Bricks can be More than an Eyesore

Wauwatosa Brick RepairMost homes have brick or stonework incorporated into the home design. The addition of stonework to the exterior of a home is a popular decorating option and increases your home value - however when your bricks start to chip, crack or crumble your home can begin to look rundown.

Besides being an eyesore, cracks and holes in your masonry work may also allow pests, water, and drafts into your home, leading to further damage.

What Causes Damage?
