Check out all our Services.

Tuckpointing

Tuckpointing is replacing the exterior layer of mortar between masonry units that has weathered or cracked.  This is necessary to strengthen a masonry wall and prevent water infiltration.  We recommend grinding out the old mortar 3/4" deep in order to allow more mortar to be placed in the joint.

Grinding

Grinding is done in order to remove the defective mortar from a joint. It also should be done  to provide more room for new mortar to be put into the joint.  We recommend a 3/4" depth.  

Lintel Replacement

Lintels are the piece of steel directly above a window or door opening on a masonry wall.  These need to be replaced due to rusting and bending  from time to time.  When there are step cracks at the corner of windows or the steel is bending, then these are sure signs the lintels need to be replaced.                

Critical Inspections

These are inspections required by the City in order to check the safety of a mid to high rise building.  We work with many engineers and can provide you with a Critical Inspection and also take care of the necessary work for you.

Violations Corrected

If the City of Chicago gave you a building violation then we can help you by getting the necessary permits and completing the work for you.


Modac Coatings

Modac is an attractive way to protect concrete structures.  We do not recommend sealing brick with Modac unless it has been previously painted already.  We recommend this product for concrete high rises.

Roofing

We can also take care of that  leaky roof for you or provide you with a brand new roof system.  Plus gutters and downspouts.

Windows

We can replace a broken window for you, or change all the windows in your building.  New windows provide a very attractive look to your existing home and can lower your heating and air conditioning costs.

Concrete Sealing

We can clean and seal your concrete parking garage.  Sealing the concrete prolongs the life of the concrete, looks more attractive and  prevents water infiltration to lower levels. Sealer can be clear or

                                     colored.

Caulking

Caulking  deteriorates over time and needs to be replaced around windows and openings in order to keep the building water tight.
