Project Info

Brick column repair.

The client called us because his brick columns were in need of a repair. Large cracks along the sides started appearing. We had to demolish the old brick columns and inspect the metal poles inside. the brick columns were load bearing but since the metal pole was rusted we needed to repair them. After waterproofing metal poles we proceeded to building 3 new brick columns.
The joints were raked out and we used salvaged bricks. The owner was pleased with the final outcome. Like nothing ever happened. If you wish to read a detailed article with pictures describing how to build a brick column go to
