Sonrise Masonry serving the greater Kansas City area
We at Sonrise Masonry are very excited about what our company has become. We started with an idea that we wanted to help people with their masonry needs in a cost effective manner. We started small with just a few customers but grew quickly as our reputation for high quality work spread. At the beginning we only serviced homes and businesses in Kansas City but now serve quite a few neighboring towns. We currently have customers in Independence, Raytown, Lee’s Summit, Blue Springs, Parkview, Overland Park, Olathe, Shawnee, Leawood, Prairie Village, Merriam, and Bonner Springs.
We take great pride in the work we do. It is important to us to not only get the technical work completed correctly but to do it in a professional and timely manner. We enjoy our work. We like knowing that we have saved homeowners and businesses money in both the short term and long term. The project work cost is fair and problems down the road are prevented.
We repair all kinds of masonry problems. If there are cracks in the foundation or basement walls of your home, these need to be fixed as soon as possible. When there are cracks in the foundation, serious damage can result in your house as it begins to shift. It can cause damage to your internal and exterior walls, ceilings, floors and roof. If you don’t get the foundation fixed you could be looking at a much more expensive job in the near future. Concrete is made up of cement, gravel, sand and water. When the concrete is mixed, the water evaporates and the concrete cures. When it cures the concrete shrinks slightly and hairline cracks often occur. When the house settles or the ground beneath the house shifts these cracks can grow larger. Most times these cracks don’t cause the structural integrity of the house to weaken but sometimes they do. Our experts can test and see if the cracks are causing structural damage to your house. An in-depth evaluation is always prudent. Keep in mind that even if there is no structural damage, groundwater can seep in and cause water damage. Depending on the severity of the cracks we will use either hydraulic cement or an epoxy-injection system. We will create injection ports, fill the ports with sealer, spread the sealer along the cracks, inject epoxy into the cracks, seal up and cut away the ports. Our workers know the exact proportion of sealer and epoxy to use and how to apply it properly.
Masonry restoration can be tearing the masonry down and rebuilding to sealing and cleaning an existing building. Some buildings have lime based mortar and some have cement based mortar. The lime based mortar is much softer than the cement based mortar. Masonry restoration should be performed with lime based mortar because it creates a more flexible and softer bond. There are important differences between the methods used to restore a building that is 150 years old with that of a building that is 75 years old. Different yet are houses that are 50 years old versus houses that are 10 years old. Our workers do a history of the building before any work is done. This is not a cookie cutter operation. Each restoration project is different and may need different restoration methods and materials. Whether to seal or not to seal is a big decision. Sometimes it is best not to seal an older building. But sometimes it is. Our experts can make that call. So if the concrete surface of your house is deteriorating, weakening or just doesn’t look as good as it used to, masonry restoration is what you need. We treat discolored and stained areas. We reconstruct damaged mortar joints. We do tuckpointing repairs as well. We apply water repellents. We restore old damaged, stained and weather beaten masonry to its original look.
Okay, you want something brand new. You want a new fireplace or you need to replace a chimney. You need to replace a stone retaining wall. You want a fountain. You want to redo the front of your house with stone or stucco. You need to replace a stone patio. You need to replace the stone veneer on your house. Our engineer(s) will do a condition survey and review the structural capacity and durability of item you want renovated. We will demolish the walls, the old fireplace, and any old structure that needs to be replaced. We will then do the toothing, cutting and patching and all the replacement necessary including lintels, needling and shoring. We will make sure your new look is not only beautiful but also waterproof, corrosion protected and structurally strong and sound.
I think you can see that we are very serious about being your “everything” masonry company. No job is too small or too big.
