Brick and Masonry Problems

Bricks and masonry can develop problems as they age. It is a good idea to be aware of some of the signs of brick and masonry problems in and around your Bay Area home or business. Some of these signs can be an indication of foundation failure. Some of the signs to look for are:

  • Vertical corner cracks - these cracks occur when the soil is dry, causing the coil to shrink.
  • Bulging or brick or masonry walls - this is caused by the corrosion of the shelf angle, rain water draining down the side of the home, or the high moisture content of the soil surrounding the wall
  • Compaction - if the foundation is sinking or settling, it can result in bricks compacting down on one another.
