What is Commercial Masonry?

Commercial and institutional masonry therefore targets stores, offices, factories and public buildings. Whether it is at the time of the creation of the building or to carry out improvement, reinforcement, aesthetic alterations or even security work, Maçonnerie Murphy is there to help and guide you.

Our commercial and institutional masonry services

The facade is an essential element in any construction. It is important for two reasons: it provides both protection and insulation. During the initial construction, the facade construction must respect standards but above all have sufficient insulation to protect the people inside from bad weather, especially in winter in Quebec!

Masonry Murphy can build you a stone or brick facade according to your wishes. Brick is less expensive than stone. But the stone offers a traditional and authentic side.

Masonry maintenance always begins preventively. We therefore offer this service to owners of commercial and institutional buildings. At a minimum, an annual consultation is strongly recommended in Quebec, especially in the spring to see if the structure has been affected by the winter that has just passed.

The installation of exterior cladding is essential and not only for an aesthetic appearance. The exterior wall cladding protects the building from the weather. The choice, although aesthetic, therefore depends on the climatic conditions of the region. When buying, you must therefore take into account the standards in force in your municipality, durability and, of course, your budget.

Foundation waterproofing is often neglected by builders in favor of simple tarring. Although it is an economical solution, it will not resist cracking or damage over time. In addition, it will not effectively protect the building in the event of the constant presence of water as well as humidity around the foundations. Foundation waterproofing is the only way to counter these situations. This is lifetime protection for your building as well as the best choice for your health.

A flashing is the finish applied at the edge (side) of a roof as well as against a wall. It is installed for its waterproof properties. It can be made of zinc (made to measure by the zinc worker), mortar or lead. It is the latter material that we prefer at Maçonnerie Murphy for its waterproof properties and low cost. A lead flashing, also called a “lead skirt”, is fixed to the wall with fixing pegs above the tiles. Lead flashings can be installed on round tiles as well as on flat tiles.

At Maçonnerie Murphy, we are able to build you the best stone or brick fireplaces on the market. We are able to build you different types of chimneys: double-walled insulated chimneys, condensation chimneys, etc.

We speak of refractory masonry when we use refractory materials, that is, materials that resist very high temperatures. Brick, steel, silica, magnesia, alumina, or even graphite are examples of refractory materials. Indeed, even at very high temperatures, they cause no chemical reaction with the materials around them.

The installation of stone, granite, limestone or even marble panels is one of the last touches brought to your commercial or institutional building. These are above all architectural and aesthetic elements that have very little impact on the life of the building.
