The Perfect Brick Face Repair
The face bricks of buildings are the first line of defence against the elements and can become damaged over time. Replacing these bricks can be costly and, particularly with older bricks, sourcing the right match almost impossible. The solution is brick face repair and Twistfix make it easy with our brick-coloured repair mortar, available in a wide selection of colours.
Repairing damaged face bricks with our colour matching repair mortar is far less disruptive than replacing them. The method also ensures a high level of cost-effectiveness both in terms of material and labour costs. The appearance of the damaged brickwork is immediately improved when repaired using the mineral-based mortar, which has been specifically designed for restoring damaged brick surfaces.
Colour matching brick repair mortar is vapour permeable. This means that salts and moisture are allowed to freely migrate to the surface, a quality which creates strong resistance to salt expansion and prevents the freeze/thaw cycle that causes spalling at the brick face. Showing the most outstanding bonding characteristics, coloured repair mortar has been formulated to be wholly compatible with oven-fired masonry units and each colour-matched compound promises to deliver the most robust, durable finish with a natural aesthetic.
Using the mortar is easy and fast, giving professional results. Full instructions are provided with the product but here is a brief guide of how to use;
