What is a masonry frost boil?

In masonry, a frost boil can be recognized by a swelling that forms on a wall, resulting from the progressive detachment of bricks from the structure. Frost boils are generally caused by water infiltrating the mortar joints of your stone or brick wall. When it freezes, the infiltrated water expands, which can not only cause swelling, but also lead to corrosion of the metal anchors, thus contributing to the appearance of the swelling.

Here are a few ways to recognize a frost boil in a masonry 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)
  • Proper building insulation
  • 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
