We’ll discuss the critical role condition assessments play in determining the root cause of facade issues and show real-world repair solutions. You’ll also learn about historic masonry materials and how to repair them, along with the evolution of building technology from mass load-bearing masonry to steel frame and masonry-clad structures. Get a deep dive into 2 common restoration issues: pointing mortar and masonry cleaning. We’ll cover mortar sample selection, testing, and analysis as well as appropriate cleaning methods for historic properties based on the masonry type, condition, soiling type, and scope.
