Brick repair is an art form that takes years to truly master. It is about much more than laying a new set of bricks in place. It’s about matching the brick and mortar to your existing chimney, brick porch, stone wall, and more to blend seamlessly with what you already have on your property. In the guide below, we will explain how the team here at Brickworks Property Restoration makes sure that every home and business owner in Michigan gets the best matched brick repairs possible.
Sourcing From Multiple Supply Yards
While most brick repair companies in Michigan work with one or two supply yards, we use 15 to 20. That significantly increases our chances of finding a perfect match for your bricks. Think about what happens when you shop for new home décor. If you shop at only one or two stores, you never find the exact piece you’re looking for. By browsing multiple shops in the city, you have the best chance of getting a high-quality piece to add to your interior space. The same theory applies to brick matching, which is why we give each of our customers the absolute best brick match available to them.
Matching Samples At The Yard And At The Site
As we mentioned before – brick matching is an art form. It requires multiple steps to truly perfect. That means taking a sample from your bricks to the supply yard for matching and bringing samples back to your property to compare. With this double checking system, we are able to get precise matches almost every single time, regardless of the style or age of the building. If the samples we selected from the yard do not match well enough, we will look for other options until we find the right fit.
Experienced Bricklayers Who Know What To Look For
A lot of the “art” in brick matching comes down to experience. For instance, did you know that if your home was built between 1955 and 1975, there is an 87% chance you have bricks from the Glen Gary number series? These are things that you learn after years of experience in the business. Here at Brickworks Property Restoration, we have the knowledge and expertise needed to get the perfect bricks for your chimney repair, brick repair, and much more.
