Brickwork

Restoring dilapidated brickwork to its former glory is an art form that few highly skilled tradespeople possess.

Old Richmond Plaster is an artisan bricklayer and solid plasterer for over 25 years carrying out brickwork repairs, such as mortar erosion, rising damp repairs and cracks.

Mortar Erosion can occur from a variety of reasons including weak mortar mix, salt damp, old age and atmospheric conditions. Depending on the cause, there are treatments available.

Rising Damp in Melbourne is largely present and a common problem, again with few highly skilled tradespeople being able to treat with long term results effectively. Brickwork with rising damp is left with what is known as ‘Salt Damp’. Alinement Group assesses and specialises in treating the affected areas.
