Brick Waterproofing

Brick should be waterproofed to reduce the affects of climate changes, pollution and to prevent water from penetrating the structure.

On newer homes with grade or above grade brick we recommend treating every 5 to 10 years.   On older homes or homes made with below grade brick or damaged brick where the brick and mortar tends to be more porous, the sealant may need to be applied more frequently.  The length of time between treatments will depend on the weathering conditions, the porosity of the brick and waterproofing material used.
