Masonry with MHPN: Old Brick Resources

Michigan Historic Preservation Network

At B+BD, we’re often asked questions about masonry, and dealing with issues that arise on older brick walls. 

MHPN recently hosted a webinar  "What to Know Before Starting an Old Brick Project" digging into this topic!
Brick mason, Blair Bates, discussed what property owners need to know before starting a project on their old brick structures, including photos of common issues, what questions to ask a contractor before hiring them to work on your masonry structure, along with other things to consider before getting started on a project. 

You can view the recording of the zoom workshop here and view the list of accompanying Old Brick Resources here.
