GL Barnhart Construction and W.S. Jenks & Sons are hosting a discussion on historic home masonry care and maintenance at 910 Bladensburg Rd. NE on January 20th 2018 at 11 a.m. The vast majority of the homes and buildings in our nationís capitol were built over 100 years ago from historic masonry.
The mortar of our brick buildings is in most cases well beyond its useful life, and as the brick and stone facades have aged the historic mortar has deteriorated significantly. These masonry and brick walls can be maintained and repaired. In most cases brick tuckpointing is required. However, the majority of masons in the US work on new construction only and do not understand the critical differences in historic masonry restoration. Learn what makes tuckpointing right from wrong and learn about how our historic buildings were built. Download the flier and more information at https://www.glbarnhart.com/community.
