Most modern flat-roofed construction, whether residential or otherwise, includes these walls at the edges as a matter of safety, both to prevent people from accidentally falling off the roof and to prevent accumulated debris from falling off and possibly injuring people below. Why should you repair a failing parapet wall? Badly damaged parapet walls pose a serious risk to pedestrians walking beneath the building. Loose brick may fall and seriously injure someone. Also, the top of a parapet wall is vulnerable to moisture penetration problems. Choosing an appropriate cap is an effective way to eliminate this condition. To protect moisture from entering through the top of the wall, a continuous flashing membrane should be installed directly beneath the mortar joint below the cap.

FocalPoint Masonry worked on my house a couple times. They did some brick and stone work on an arch in the front of my house that turned out great. They also have have done some waterproofing where leaks were happening. They are clean, efficient and reasonably priced. If I need any additional masonry work on my property I will always reach out to FocalPoint Masonry.
I have used FocalPoint Masonry on a couple jobs at a multi unit building I own. They are easy to communicate with and clearly lay out the costs upfront (which isn’t always the case with construction people). I will definitely use them again in the future!
