When Did This Happen?!

“What?! When did what happen?” yells Josh, rounding the corner at a run.

Nicole jabs her finger angrily at the crack in their stone retaining wall. “This. Right. Here. This huge crack in the retaining wall around our patio. You know, the one we host on every week.”

“I have,” -Josh puts his hands on his knees, trying to catch his breath- “no idea. Whew! Haven’t moved that fast in years.”

Nicole rubs his back. “My hero, coming so quickly,” she says with a smile. “You’ll be even more my hero if you can answer this question: how much does masonry work cost?” Josh shrugs. “Looks like Google’s going to be both of our heroes.”

Nicole snorts a laugh. “Fair enough, let’s go ahead and look it up. We’ll need to find a brick and masonry repair contractor, too.” She takes her phone out and looks it up, sitting on the cracked retaining wall as she does.

The Main Reasons Brick And Masonry Work Costs Change

The scale of repairs needed. The more damage there is, or the worse it is, the more it costs to repair. Less damage means less cost.

Location and access. Fixing something on the ground versus something on the roof or siding has different costs. We need more equipment to fix anything that isn’t on ground level. Also, the ability to get the equipment where it needs to go. We may have to pull down part of a fence or wall and then rebuild it after the project.

Type of structure. Retaining walls, patios, chimneys, and other structures may need different processes, equipment, or time to fix.

Amount of dust protection. Working with brick and stone causes dust to fly. We don’t want it getting all over your yard or home, so we take protective measures. The more we need to set up the more time, labor, and materials it’ll take.

Type of stone joints. We may have to cut stone or brick to fit into the pattern or design. This takes more labor, time, and equipment to do.

Material. Hard vs soft brick can slow down or speed up repairs. Also, if the material you’re having us work with is local or needs shipping can affect costs.

Josh nods. “Or like that time we had to replace our entire patio after that tree smashed into it.” Nicole nods sadly. “Here, let’s see what else we can find on this blog,” suggests Josh, trying to distract her. Nicole nods as a small smile appears on her face.
