Have You Thought About Your Parapet Wall?
A leaky roof can become a serious problem very quickly. It can do permanent damage to your ceiling, your walls, even your furniture and floors. But did you know that a worn or damaged parapet wall can cause some of the same problems? If your St. Louis home has a flat roof, you have a parapet wall; and it’s important to keep it in good repair. Proper maintenance and timely repairs can keep your parapet wall standing, and keep water out of your home.
Repair or Rebuild Your Parapet Wall with Humes Masonry Solutions
It’s the crown of your home–the parapet wall is the top section of the exterior wall that wraps around and extends above your flat roof. Constantly exposed to harsh weather, temperature fluctuations, burrowing insects and animals, your brick parapet wall takes a beating. Crumbling mortar, as well as loose or cracked bricks allow moisture into your home, where it damages your interior walls.
At Humes Masonry Solutions, we will help you prevent this damage with our expert services. Our team of professional masonry and tuckpointing contractors services metal, clay and limestone copings, to keep water from penetrating into the parapet wall. We tuckpoint loose or crumbling mortar, to protect your brick parapet and keep moisture out of your home. To prevent the leaks around the base of your parapet, we install or repair flashing. Finally, we can rebuild or replace severely deteriorated, bowed, or leaning parapet walls.
