Masonry is a craft where a mason builds a structure using individual units of stone, brick or concrete blocks. These units are usually bound to one another with mortar and grout. Regardless of whether you are constructing your new home from the ground up, or your property is undergoing renovations, hiring the right mason is critical. In Northern New Jersey alone, rain fall can be as much as 51 inches a year. That’s more than other parts of the state. In these conditions, masonry work is not just about appearance and functionality but about alleviating water damage to your home. That’s why Eco-Dry Waterproofing is the right choice for all your masonry work. We ensure the job is done correctly from the start.
Types of Masonry Work
As specialists in all types of masonry work, Eco-Dry Waterproofing particularly focuses on:
New Concrete Floors
Concrete floors are a low-maintenance and durable flooring solution. They’re extremely popular in the garage, basement, or as a flooring for the patio. Because they are waterproof and scratch-resistant, you can use them in high-frequency areas. By choosing this option, your concrete floors will last years and won’t need extensive – and expensive – annual maintenance.
Brick work is known for its durability. It is a common option for the exterior of your home. Bear in mind to avoid structural damage, which may require thousands of dollars to repair, your brick work needs to be waterproofed.
Block work is where concrete units that are larger than a standard clay brick are used to build a structure. They are lighter and easier to work with because of their hollow core, which also adds to their insulation properties. The best time to waterproof block work is during construction or renovation. It can’t be an afterthought. Without the correct drainage, water can accumulate at the wall footing and cause the wall to move. Do it properly the first time and have your block work completed by Eco-Dry Waterproofing.
Bilco Entrances (Bilco Doors & Stairwells)
Bilco entrances or Bilco doors are basement doors. An external entrance to your basement is convenient for moving large items in and out of your basement. However, Bilco entrances can become a nightmare to the structure of your basement and home if not installed correctly. The water damage can lead to mold and increase dampness in your basement that will affect the structure of your home. The same is true for the proper installation of basement windows. When installing Bilco entrances and basement windows as egress from your basement, always use the services of a waterproofing specialist. Eco-Dry Waterproofing helps NJ homeowners achieve their desired look while preserving the structure of the home and basement through effective waterproofing.
