This 15 storey apartment building had extensive problems with its brick.  The building had been previously repaired, but still continued to deteriorate.

Grgas was retained to assess and oversee the brick repair.

 

Investigation revealed the deterioration was caused by a tear in the roof membrane allowing water to get into the exterior wall, causing the brick to crack due to freeze-thaw action.

Grgas repairs began with the roof membrane. Once the roof problem was solved, Grgas repaired the bricks.
