Eventually steel lintels or shelf angles need to be repaired or replaced. A lintel is what actually supports the masonry units above any masonry opening. Typically the lintel is a steel lintel. Over time and lack of maintenance the lintels will rust and deteriorate. This causes the lintel to be unable to support the large load of masonry from above. As the steel lintel gives way to the load it will bend and cracks will occur at the corners of the masonry opening. If the lintel is not replaced with a new piece of steel the lintel will eventually completely fail and a section of the wall may come down. When the lintel begins to rust it expands also causing the brick to move and become displaced. Over time the rust builds up to a point where it can actually widen the joint and raise the brick out of place. Whether, the lintel is rusting to a point where the rust is an issue or if the lintel is deteriorated to a point where the lintel has rusted away, Bruno Construction Masonry, Inc. can provide you with the information needed to make a proper decision on to the masonry repairs your building may need.

Parapet Walls Repaired and Rebuilt
on Commercial and Residential Buildings in Palatine, IL.
and surrounding areas.
Parapet walls are located at the top the masonry walls of a building or structure above the roof line. In the old days parapet walls were used as protection, but today it is more to protect the roof assembly itself. High winds can go under a roof membrane and rip the roof right off a building. The purpose of a parapet wall to prevent the wind from going under the roof itself and lifting it right up. That is why parapet walls are higher than the roof line, and why parapet wall maintenance is crucial on a masonry building. When maintenance, such as tuckpointing the joints or caulking the copings is not done, the parapet wall can fail. The easiest maintenance to do on a parapet wall is to keep the rainwater out and the wall dry.
When maintenance of parapet walls is not maintained the joints fail and not only allow the wind to enter, but also moisture. This moisture can be from rain or snow. If caught early then tuckpointing can be completed on the masonry joints and the copings can have caulking placed on the sky facing joints to protect the top of the parapet walls. If this is not done, then over time the situation will only get worse and the parapet walls will only continue to deteriorate. Eventually, it will get to the point that simple maintenance of the parapet walls is not enough and the parapet walls will need to be rebuilt.
