Prior to 1930, most masonry construction utilized Portland/lime based mortars. Most historical brick buildings and homes standing today were constructed this way. It’s imperative to understand the architectural distinction between mortars used during this time period when it comes to brick restoration on historical buildings or homes. You can count on MVM to implement historical masonry restoration methods to protect the integrity of your home or building. We take the time to match the color of pre-existing mortar as well as applying historical masonry techniques to ensure quality.
Brick restoration can be required due to a number of brick problems: staining, cracking, leaking and other aging factors.

We provide brick restoration services that separate us from the rest of the brick restoration companies in the industry.
Brick efflorescence is a clear indication that water is getting behind the wall and is pushing salts through to the facade of the brick. Brick restoration can be performed in order to remove the unsightly efflorescence from the surface of the brick, but it is important to repair the areas that are allowing the water to enter the brick wall system. As experienced brick restoration contractors, we know what to look for and how to repair the damage caused by efflorescence.
