Lancaster County homes are famous for their stately brick homes and buildings, detailed brick trims, and lovely brick patios and walkways. For hundreds of years, people in Manheim, Lititz, Gap, Landisville, Quarryville, Elizabethtown, Millersville, and throughout the greater Lancaster area have valued the look and durability of brick. While bricks are a strong and lasting building product, this time-honored building material also needs some care to keep it looking great and structurally sound.
Atkins has been helping Lancaster County homeowners clean and restore all types of exterior home surfaces for more than 25 years. Let our team of experienced brick maintenance professionals restore your brick home to its original beauty.
Brick is basically baked clay. That means that brick surfaces, and other masonry, are porous surfaces that can absorb dirt and water in ways that can cause potential problems. For some homeowners, paint stains from aluminum siding or black carbon buildup can mar the natural good looks of a brick home. For others, mildew, mold or algae builds up in shady areas and is especially troublesome on brick patios and brick walkways.
Keep moisture from damaging your foundation and walls. Maintain a clean and fresh curb appeal.
If your brick home, walks, or patio need repointing or minor repairs, Atkins can help. Our expert brick cleaning and maintenance services can include minor repointing on flagstone walks, brick patios and brick walls. Atkins is pleased to refer you to a qualified mason for larger jobs.
