Brickwork repair is far more cost-effective than replacing the bricks entirely. Whether you have spalding brickwork, missing pointing or porous brickwork, it is essential that you get these tended to as soon as you spot signs of weakening. The purpose of the wall is to maintain the structure of the house and keep the weather outside. If you have damaged brickwork, these could be at compromise.
CAUSES OF WEAKENED BRICKS
Bricks are not indestructible. They too have their weak points and over time, they will be found and taken advantage of. One way that bricks are weakened is erosion; the elements will, over time, wear away the bricks and cause significant damage thus causing a weaker structure.
If you have porous brickwork, the constant freezing and thawing of water inside the brickwork can cause internal cracks meaning that fragments can break away leaving weaker bricks and an overall weaker structure.
