Your commercial building is the first impression anyone visiting your property will get. As a result, when your property looks unkempt or your building is not maintained correctly, it can be a red flag and lead to poor impressions. Here are four of our simple tips to enhance the look of your commercial masonry building.
Use Tuckpointing to Revitalize the Space
Mortar is the glue that holds bricks and other commercial masonry stones together. However, it also goes beyond that and helps to make sure that the weight of the building is evenly distributed. If you do not have enough mortar or mortar that is properly installed, you can start to see cracks in your masonry and the structural integrity of the building will suffer. Tuckpointing is an easy way to revitalize the look of your building and make sure that you are safe.
Bricks and stones can stand the test of time with ease, but washing them regularly is the best way to reduce the risk of staining. Commercial masonry can be stained from weather, chemicals, and even yard debris. As a result, power washing or pressure washing your bricks annually can eliminate these stains and any dirt present. Make sure that you use the proper detergent and setting to avoid permanent damage to the bricks.
Experiment with Custom Features
Commercial masonry can be used for more than just creating a building itself. For example, unique bricks or stones can be used to create eye-catching walkways that are just as beautiful as they are functional. We can help walk you through a variety of options to enhance your building and the grounds with masonry.
Make Contrast With Mortar
Finally, use mortar to create contrast in your commercial masonry for a unique look. Sometimes commercial business owners like to match the color of the stone seamlessly with the mortar. Still, a little bit of contrast can make the outside of your building look more interesting and also attract more attention.
