The advantages of masonry

The advantages are numerous and no longer need to be proven. Among the main characteristics are its durability and strength, its ability to protect against fire, its good thermal resistance, and its ease of maintenance.

Durable and strong

When combined with mortar and installed by a qualified contractor, brick and stone are two of the strongest materials for building an exterior wall. They will protect the structure of your building from weather and water seepage.

Fire protection

Brick and stone provide excellent fire protection. In the event of a fire, they prevent the spread of flames, which is why they are so commonly used in buildings throughout Montreal.

Good thermal resistance

Masonry helps maintain a comfortable indoor temperature as it increases the thermal resistance of your home. During the day, heat is retained inside the masonry walls and released slowly at night. This feature allows you to save on your electricity bill.

Ease of maintenance

If maintained regularly, your brick walls will protect the structure of your home for a long period of time, better than most materials available on the market. Even though masonry work entails significant amounts of work, the regular maintenance of your brick or stone building is quite simple.

Specialized Heritage Restoration Contractor

Residential buildings of architectural and heritage value are our preferred niche.

Nearly 85% of buildings on the island of Montreal have at least one masonry facade. All these buildings have heritage value and must be maintained regularly in order to preserve their distinctive character so highly valued by the City of Montreal.

Maintain the original look of your building while ensuring it is safe for its occupants. Restaure-Action carefully removes stones and bricks from your facade so they can be reused once the repairs are completed. If required, we source identical raw materials to the originals to replace damaged stones and bricks.

Masonry repairs

At Restaure-Action, we always initially verify if the problem areas relative to the building can be repaired instead of being completely replaced.
