Fretting mortar is a common problem with many Western Australian homes and villa complex’s. Causes are varied, but include poorly mixed mortar, wind erosion, sprinkler damage, lack of a damp proof course, and in some cases the wrong cement being used in coastal environments.
Repairing fretting mortar should only be undertaken by tradesmen skilled in this field. The high standard of workmanship achieved by Allbrick Restorations, is the result of many years of hands on experience, using only materials specific for brickwork restoration, and using the most advanced equipment and tools available.
The restoration process used in most situations commences with thorough preparation that requires the removal of mortar joints in effected areas to a suitable depth, this is carried out using dustless routers connected to vacuum systems the affected areas are then cleaned to remove any residual debris, now it is ready to repoint.
Mortar joints are now pressure filled with colour matched mortar using specialist mortar guns, then tooled to match existing unaffected brickwork. Once complete we give the area a thorough clean.
The benefits of using our pressure filling system ensures no smearing of brick face, total fill, increased adhesion strength, shrinkage eliminated, and inherent waterproofing properties making mortar highly resistant to bore/salt water and chemical attack.
