Protecting Commercial Buildings with Waterproofing Brick
Bricks are a popular choice for commercial building exteriors due to their widespread usage. They are typically held together with mortar, which binds the brick structure. Although brick and mortar provide an attractive appearance, they lack waterproofing properties. The porous nature of mortar allows it to absorb water and moisture, leading to potential leaks in the building. Additionally, water and moisture can cause efflorescence, resulting in white staining on the masonry surface as natural salts in brick break down. If you observe wet stains on the interior walls of your brick building or notice a slight whitening of the bricks, it may be necessary to consider applying a protective coating to reduce water intrusion and preserve the integrity of your building’s exterior.

How To Waterproof Bricks
When you notice that your brick and mortar exterior is allowing water into your structure, it’s natural to want to take action. You may consider tarping the exterior to help prevent more water from coming in. The best solution to combat time and cost is to waterproofing your brick exterior.
Below are a few steps that we will take to waterproofing your brick.
- Cleaning the Surface – We offer commercial power washing to help thoroughly clean your brick surface.
- Repair any damage – We inspect the brick for any holes, cracks, and gaps and repair these issues before any applications.
- Waterproof Sealant – Once the two steps are completed, our team will apply a waterproof sealant across the entire brick exterior.
- Curing and Drying – After the product is applied, the product will need to dry and cure for a few days.
- Inspection – We will perform a final walkthrough with you and make sure that you are satisfied with the results before we leave the site.
