The weak link in building construction can often be found holding up the brickwork over window and door openings. Typically, this supporting element is made of steel, which can rust, lose strength and create a hazardous condition. Additionally, the rusting steel expands in size, heaving the masonry around it and destroying the façade. That’s when people turn to Boccia for a complete lintel replacement. Boccia Inc. will never just replace the steel in kind so it can happen again. Every lintel replacement is galvanized and includes a through-wall flashing detail with end dams and a weep system.
Cracked brickwork or weathered, eroded joints are common conditions found on masonry structures. Occasionally, this results in loss of water tightness, which leads to water intrusion into the building envelope and accelerated deterioration. The possibility of building pieces falling onto the sidewalks below can create a hazardous condition. Therefore, Boccia Inc. can remove and replace all types of defective masonry, effectively eliminating these conditions.
