Masonry Protection

Moisture can damage masonry. Masonry protection cream can prevent that damage. We can apply an invisible layer of protection to your brick, stone or concrete surface and create a water-repellent barrier that will guard against water damage for years to come.

Penetrating damp—rain penetrating your masonry—is a common problem, and it can be a costly one. Particularly common in solid wall construction, the issue is also a problem in cavity wall construction when the insulation was installed improperly, the wall ties were positioned incorrectly or there are mortar obstructions. 

If you notice any of the following issues, you may have penetrating damp, and you need to consult with a masonry expert:

  • Localized areas of dampness on interior walls
  • Paint and plaster damage, including peeling, blistering and the presence of salts
  • Rotting boards
  • Visible mold or a moldy odor
  • Extensive moss growth on exterior walls
  • Spalling—flakes of brick coming off caused by moisture

To combat rain penetration, Paint of WNY can apply a waterproofing treatment to your masonry. This breathable, colorless protection penetrates deep into the masonry and forms a barrier to keep your masonry safe. 
Proven to provide long-lasting protection to your building, masonry protection cream not only keeps water out, but it keeps heat in, as dry walls insulate better than wet walls. A building treated with waterproofing will maximize its thermal resistance, lowering your energy costs.
