Masonry gives your Indianapolis home a charming, timeless look. Generally, masonry is very durable and will last a long time. However, harsh winter weather and the wear and tear over time may damage your masonry. Once you notice the red-flags of masonry damage like bulging bricks, cracked bricks, or deteriorating mortar, it is time to consult a professional for repair.  While spring is the best time to perform a masonry repair, you should begin planning as soon as you notice masonry damage. 

Masonry Repairs in Spring 

Spring is the ideal time for professional masons to perform repairs. Bitter winter weather can get in the way of repairs because some masonry equipment cannot be used when it is under certain temperatures.

Common masonry structures like chimneys and fireplaces are used most during the winter, so by spring, you will most easily be able to assess and repair any damages to keep your masonry healthy and ready for the next burning season. 


Start Planning Now

While spring is the ideal time for masonry repairs, if you start planning repairs in spring you are too late. If you notice any issues during the winter, you should have them assessed by an experienced mason. Spring is a very busy time for masons, so it is crucial that you get on the schedule as soon as possible.

Start planning your masonry maintenance and repairs now. You should be sure to schedule your annual chimney sweep and inspection as well as any other recommended repairs. Those in the greater Indianapolis area should call your local Brick + Ember Outfitters to begin planning your masonry repairs.
