Fort Worth/Dallas Brick Repair and Replacement
♦ We remove the

dust. Both of these actions are required to ensure proper bonding of the new
mortar. The depth and bonding is integral to fully repairing the crack.
Shallower cuts only mask the underlying crack.
Broken Brick Replacement
♦ Some areas may require that one or more
bricks be shifted to bring them back into proper alignment and spacing. Broken
brick are removed and replaced with new brick. Brick alignment and replacement
is an important part of our service. If walls remain out of alignment, all
repairs will be obvious.
The mortar that we use is very important to getting the brick repair done right. Many companies use misguided practices of mixing your mortar to match. They mix small amounts of mortar and adjust the color between grey and white by using small portions of type N masonry mixes. All packages of masonry mix are pre-proportioned to have an exact ratio per the volume of mix, and they all require the full package use to keep this ratio. When this ratio is altered, it changes the mortar type and crushing pressure of the mortar. This will also change the performance of the mortar and affect the mortar's ability to bond into the wall.
We use AMR Labs to test samples of your mortar, and match it completely. This match includes the mortar color, mortar type and crushing pressure, and the color and gradation of the aggregate used. From this information, an exact mortar formula is produced to match your mortar, and pre-matched mortars are produced for your repairs. Sometimes, these mortars are manufactured on-site, but the formula is followed exactly.
AMR Pre-Matched and Tuckpoint mortars are the only mortars available that come in these smaller bags and various color tones and are made specifically for brick mortar repair.
