There is a difference between hiring a masonry contractor, and hiring a masonry restoration contractor. Masonry restoration involves unique challenges that are different from new construction, and you need a contractor that knows the difference.
All masonry restoration contractors are not created equally. Here are a few factors to remember when choosing the right one for your project.
1. Expertise and experience are essential – An inexperienced contractor who does not understand or use Masonry Restoration Industry Standard construction methods could cause irreparable damage to your masonry. For example, did you know that improper repointing techniques can scar masonry? Using wire brushes and sandblasting can severely damage masonry? And some chemicals used for cleaning and sealing can permanently stain or discolor masonry?
A contractor with expertise and experience in restoration industry standards and best practices knows how to do the job properly.
