Masonry

Tips:

Learn about the different types of mortar.  Read the Region of Waterloo Practical Guide to Masonry [pdf].

Mortar must be softer than the masonry units (brick, stone, terra cotta etc).

Water penetration is the enemy of masonry.  Halt the source of water problems before starting repairs.

Keep sidewalk salt away from masonry.  It will destroy it.

Be cautious about cleaning masonry.  Improper cleaning can cause irreparable damage to heritage buildings.
