Historic Brickworks – Repair and Restoration


Sara attended an exciting workshop at the Evergreen Brick Works in Toronto this past week, to learn from Dr. Gerard Lynch “The Red Mason”, an internationally acclaimed and highly respected historic brickwork consultant

Many of our historic brick buildings in and around Peterborough County are over 100 years old.  A lack of money, time and knowledge has resulted in owners neglecting the regular maintenance on these buildings.  Where maintenance has been completed, even with the best of intents, it has often not solved the problems or has made the problems worse.   An understanding of historic building methods and materials must be combined with knowledge of the current advancements in the brick masonry industry to design and implement long lasting repairs.
