Weather can be a damaging factor to masonry porches. Porches are close to the ground or at grade level. Masonry porches absorb moisture from the ground and cause the brick to become saturated. When these saturated brick freeze they expand and when they expand the pop. Brick damage in porches can be sporadic. Some areas can be cut out and fixed while keeping the good areas. Brick and mortar matching is a key factor in porch restoration. Chimney Cricket will help advise you in the proper direction for your porch repair. We strongly recommend a sound company who will be around for years to come. Cement porch caps also may go bad over time. Porch caps endure the cold weather too but also have to deal with the salt and shoveling of snow. Porch caps are formed, poured and finished in the proper fashion at Chimney Cricket.
