Brick repair vs. Siding for rear exterior wall of row house?
The rear exterior brick wall of our rowhouse is looking pretty terrible. No major structural damage or leaking (although you can see from the pictur that our chiminey is in pretty bad shape), but lots of old brick and mortar starting to fall apart.
I was originally thinking about hiring a company to repair the brick, but the cost to re-point brick seems pretty high. I am honestly looking for a 10-15 year solution, not a 50-100 year solution.
Has anyone had any luck in mortaring over their brick wall to stablize it and improve how it looks? And how about siding…does anyone recommend that as a solution?
I am also curious to know what people have paid for these services, and if they’d recommend a company or individual.
Thanks in Advance!
