What is a frost boil and how do you recognize it?

In masonry, a frost boil is an apparent swelling that forms on a wall, resulting from the progressive detachment of bricks from the structure. Generally speaking, this phenomenon is caused by water infiltrating the mortar joints of your stone or brick wall. By freezing, the infiltrated water causes expansion, which can also lead to corrosion of metal anchors, contributing to the appearance of this swelling.

Here’s how you can recognize a frost boil in a masonry or brick wall (if you can, look at your wall from the side)

  • Visible swelling 
  • Visible cracks
  • Brick misalignment

What are the steps involved in repairing a frost boil?

  • Assessment and diagnosis of masonry work
  • Repair planning 
  • Site preparation and securing (safety nets, scaffolding, etc.)
  • Complete dismantling of brick facing (depending on severity of damage)
  • Adequate insulation solutions
  • Treatment of underlying causes (water infiltration, corrosion of anchors, etc.)
  • Installation of new bricks as originally installed (cleaning and replacement with the old bricks)
  • Caulking and finishing around openings
  • Replacement of wooden lintels and spandrels with new concrete pieces
  • Finishing and quality control
