Failing Expansion Joint

As buildings move and flex with temperature, moisture changes and foundation settling, these expansion joints are essential to prevent cracking of the brick and building longevity. 

If these joints fail, moisture may creep inside the structural system of the building and create rust on the shelf plates/lentil and freezing may crack the brick creating more expensive repairs.

Repair of dangerously crumbling parapet wall - Before & After


Lintels, also known as the steel plates running along the top frame of your doors and windows are vital to the structural integrity of your building. Lintels distribute the weight of the wall above them and unless the steel is protected it will rust.


As you can see below, moisture seeped into the joint causing a lot of rust damage. The sealant protecting the lintel breaks down over time and in this case, was not properly maintained, which lead to rust. In worse scenarios, rust causes the steel to expand, and eventually something has to give. 


The rusting - expanding steel will cause the brick and mortar around the lintel to crack. As the crack grows it weakens the structural integrity of the entire wall.
