• Latex Paint Remediation:
An emerging field in masonry restoration is latex paint remediation. Latex based paint that has been applied to historic brick can trap moisture within the walls. Over time, the moisture causes the lime mortar between the joints, and sometimes the brick itself, to begin to erode away. To preserve historic masonry, latex paint should be removed and the building could be repainted using mineral based paint that will allow the brick and mortar joints to breathe.
