All Surface Restoration offers pressure washing & sealing to maintain the beauty & durability of exterior stone & brick masonry surfaces. No matter how dirty or stained, we can transform it to a like new condition & protect it from water penetration & future stains.
Masonry is porous and absorbs water readily. Water migration causes deterioration & efflorescence.Therefore, it’s important to ensure that any moisture trapped within the masonry can migrate & evaporate. Deterioration occurs through weathering, pollution, soot & dirt accumulation. Further damage can occur through erosion, as a result of movement caused by thermal expansion & contraction.
Cleaning stone & brick masonry is essential to keep dirt & pollutants from accumulating. It should be preformed at least once every 3-4 years to protect masonry from water penetration & stain build-up. Pressure cleaning will remove moss, mildew, algae, dirt, grease, oil, rust & mineral stains. Our cleaning process is safe & will not damage the integrity of the surface.
After masonry is cleaned it should ALWAYS be sealed. Application of Surface Saver Sealer will prevent water infiltration without trapping moisture within. Surface Saver penetrates deep into the masonry to form a lasting bond below the surface. It will not change the natural appearance of brick or stone masonry.
Sealing exterior masonry surfaces with Surface Saver Sealer forms a barrier, which locks out water & stains for an extended period, typically 3-4 years on horizontal surfaces & 5-7 years on vertical surfaces. If you notice that masonry frequently develops stains from carbon, dirt, rust & efflorescence, it should be sealed to help prevent frequent recurrence of these types of stains.
