Bricks Are Our Business :

Crack repairs/Replacement Bricks – Upon seeing cracks in your brick and stone, your immediate reaction may be to want to fix the problem due to the unsightliness. But these cracks should be repaired as soon as possible for a much more important reason: cracks can cause further damage to your home. As the foundation settles, so does the rest of the house. If there are cracks in the stone, this can lead to unevenness, causing plaster to crack or doors and windows being difficult to open and close. Cracks in bricks and surrounding mortar can result in moisture infiltration and structural damage. Repair of these cracks is known as re-pointing, or tuck-pointing. Our experienced masons expertly clean out the affected area, fill with matching material, and sand down to perfection. Unlike other companies, we don’t use normal caulking material, but rather, we bind our bricks and stone with premium, stronger Urethane.

Replacement of Bricks – You may decide that replacing a number of your bricks is the best option, be it to prevent water damage, badly cracked bricks, or to fix an ugly, previous patchwork done. We guarantee sound, waterproof work that will stand the test of time and the elements. On top of being functional, we realize that having an aesthetically pleasing brick face is important to your home. Show us your bricks and we can tell you what kind it is, where it came from, and who made it. With thousands of bricks on hand, Lopez Construction & Paving Inc has the best inventory and resources in IL. If, for some reason, there is no way to obtain the same style brick you need, this will not stop us! We have innovative ways of discreetly taking bricks from the rest of your establishment and from salvage yards to fill the need. Whatever the style of brick, we have the confidence to match it consistently with your current establishment’s look.
