Repointing is the process of replacing the damaged portion of mortar existing between masonry units in a wall. Exposed to weather and the elements, mortar is prone to moisture absorption, leading to failure through freezing, salt dissolution, and deposition. Furthermore, stress and movement in the wall can cause cracking, often presenting itself in a step formation. Integrity Masonry is highly trained and fully qualified to handle any repointing job.

The rich textures, detailed ornamentation, and distinctive character of Ottawa’s heritage stone and brick buildings require highly skilled maintenance. Over time, the number of professional masons who have the knowledge and skill necessary to restore heritage properties has declined. This presents a problem, as choosing the wrong contractor to do a restoration project can be catastrophic.
At Integrity Masonry, our team is comprised of craftsmen who have the qualifications necessary to properly restore these buildings. Our staff includes European and Canadian masons with both modern and traditional and heritage masonry training. We pride ourselves on our experience and know-how in keeping Ottawa’s historical city-scape beautiful. See our portfolio for a look at our previous work with heritage restoration.
Masonry chimneys are highly exposed to the elements. Ottawa’s climate wreaks havoc on frequently wet brickwork since freeze-thaw cycling occurs frequently during late Fall and early Spring. Integrity Masonry’s chimney reconstruction and repair services are concerned first and foremost with the building code standards that are in place to prevent premature failures. Critical among these are the code requirements at the cap or crown of the chimney since internal and external water entry in a top-down pattern is by far the most common cause of damage.
Trust our Red Seal Certified Brick & Stone Masons to deliver lasting chimney repairs by executing often ignored building code requirements during reconstruction. Please request a Quote for more information.
