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

In masonry, a frost boil is characterized by a swelling that forms on a masonry wall when bricks begin to detach from the structure. In most cases, this is caused by water seeping into the mortar joints of your stone or brick wall. These same infiltrations swell with frost and can rust the anchors, causing the swelling.

Here’s how to recognize a frost boil on a masonry or brick wall : 

  • 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)
  • Adapted insulation for the wall
  • 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
