Water Damage & Masonry

Repairing Leaky, Cracking Masonry - Bergen County NJ - Oosting ConstructionExposure to excess moisture causes major masonry deterioration and decay. A big cause of this damage is the freeze-thaw process. Your brickwork absorbs water easily and, once temperatures drop, this water will freeze and expand, causing your brickwork and mortar to expand right along with it. Later, when things thaw out, your chimney will settle and your entire system will face a lot of strain. If this happens multiple times per year, you’re looking at a lot of extra pressure!

We can repair your leaks before they cause any more issues with your masonry and fix up any other damages, too, so you won’t have to worry about facing these issues again anytime soon. Don’t let water damage get you down…at Oosting Construction we can set you up right!

Why Is Lighting Necessary?

There are lots of reasons why investing in lighting for your property is a good idea. First of all, it allows neighbors, friends, and family enjoys your beautiful landscaping all evening long, even after the sun goes down. When you put a lot of work into a part of your home, you want others to be able to enjoy looking at it! Everyone will love the atmosphere you’ve created and lighting can truly enhance the look of your yard after dark.

On this same note, we want you to enjoy your new decor, too! When you pull into your driveway after dark, you deserve to get a good view of your new masonry, sidewalks, bushes, trees, and more. It’s a good investment to make, and we guarantee you’ll be more than happy with the end results.

Another reason why extra lighting is beneficial is for increasing security levels throughout your property. Burglars aren’t likely going to target a home that doesn’t offer them good places to hide. Your home will be a less desirable choice for any lurking criminals and, should someone make an unwelcome appearance, it’ll be much easier to spot them and get a good look.

Along with this, you won’t have to stress about coming home to a dark property late at night. If your job tends to run late, or if you enjoy having supper with friends or co-workers past dark, it can be unnerving walking to your front door with no lights to guide you. Give yourself some peace of mind by hiring us to light up your property. We know you’ll love it!

Avoiding Masonry Damage

If you have masonry in your foundation, sidewalks, or anywhere else throughout your lower levels, protecting it from water is important! Brickwork and mortar suck up water very easily and, once it does, your masonry will start to deteriorate and break down. The longer this goes on, the worse things will get! And if temps drop, the freeze/thaw cycle will occur, putting even more stress and strain on your exterior parts.

Keeping Your Foundation Sturdy

Whether your foundation is made of masonry or something else, it needs to remain protected. If water is allowed to pool up near it, cracks and other damage will occur, causing the entire structure to weaken. This could lead to some serious issues and it puts your home and family at risk, too. In time, if the damages get too extreme, your entire house may even collapse!

When it comes to the safety and soundness of your home, you don’t have room to take chances. Call us in, so that we can get things done right for you! We think of every step that needs to be taken so that you don’t have to worry about a thing. When you work with Oosting Construction, you work with the best!

Mold, Mildew, Fungus, & More

One of the biggest reasons mold forms is because of excess moisture. Mold and mildew can be a dangerous thing, causing illness and medical issues that take their toll on the well being of loved ones. If family members have asthma or allergies, they’ll be even worse off!

Along with this, wet wood could rot and attract pests, such as termites, and we know no one wants to deal with the hassle and stress of removing those! On top of everything else, too much extra water easily ruins the look and aesthetic of any yard space. If you’ve spent time, money, and effort making your home’s exterior look great, then investing in proper drainage is the right move to make. Don’t let all of that hard work go to waste.
