Most Common Causes of Masonry Damage

Masonry is one of the most durable construction methods for the preservation of your building’s exterior.

Masonry is one of the most durable construction methods for the preservation of your building’s exterior. It not only makes the exterior look attractive but also increases the value of your property. Although masonry materials such as brick, stone, etc., are highly durable, they start to wear out over time and require repair and maintenance services. Masonry repair is a complex process, especially when it comes to restoration of the old buildings’ masonry. Therefore, it is best to leave the job to highly skilled and experienced professionals. Top Pro Construction LLC has a team of professional contractors with more than 17 years of experience providing reliable construction services across New Jersey. We offer reliable commercial and residential masonry repair and maintenance services to keep your property at its absolute best.
Masonry damages may occur due to several factors. Following are some of the most common causes of masonry damages:

Water leakage

Water leakage is among the most significant threats for both residential and commercial properties. It may cause major damages to your property’s structural integrity. The moisture from water leakage can easily penetrate your brick or stone masonry, and over time it will weaken your property and cause cracks and other damages. This type of damage may not be visible initially, but professional masonry contractors specialize in identifying such hidden damages and providing effective restoration solutions.


The years of wear and tear due to harsh weather conditions, lack of maintenance, and other environmental factors may contribute to many masonry issues such as cracks. Cracks are a common problem as a result of environmental exposure in most cases. Proper repair and maintenance can help extend the lifespan of the masonry. Our masonry contractor usually inspects the building to identify any cracks before they turn into a more serious problem.

Loss of adhesion

Different types of masonry materials are affixed on your property’s exterior using different kinds of industrial-grade adhesives. Moisture, environmental factors, and harsh weather conditions may lead to loss of adhesion over time. It can result in peeling, hollow patches, and flaking of the masonry layers. It is highly recommended to hire professional masonry contractors for an inspection at least once every year to ensure proper maintenance and longevity of your property’s masonry.

Fading and staining

It is natural for your masonry to start fading and become stained due to sun exposure and other intangible environmental factors. While you cannot prevent your masonry from fading or staining, you can always hire expert masonry professionals to replace/restore the masonry to enhance your property’s curb appeal.
