Brick and Stone Parapet Walls can deteriorate over time due to various effects of aging. Such may include deterioration due to water ingress, frost damage, vibration, chemical attack, direct impact, or any combination thereof. Embedded steel, wind loading, and suction loading due to passing traffic may also play a role in deterioration. Parapet walls are invariably situated at a high level on buildings and structures. Therefore, any failure could prove extremely dangerous should debris fall into adjacent areas. Repairs carried out using dense, rigid materials such as sand and cement render, pointing or bolting on steel, usually only provide short-term benefits. Thermal movement and moisture penetration are likely to result in further cracking and deterioration of the structure.

Blue Jay Builders NYC, I have been waiting for heavy rain to test the second part of the work but, of course, it hasn’t come! It seems to have been ok in the light rain we have had, so fingers are still crossed. I was pleased with the amount of care your roofers took doing the work with access via the house.
