Stone is versatile in its aesthetic appeal and can work well with other construction materials. It can be imposing, glorious, dignified, and impressive, but it can also be warm, welcoming, and homely.
Stone is one of the most beautiful and natural construction materials. It is also one of the most durable. Many ancient stonework structures around the world have outlasted the ravages of war, as well as the civilizations that built them. Stone is widely used in many applications, such as the exterior of your home, decorative fences, pillars, walkways such as flagstone, and much more. Met Exteriors takes pride in our stonework and promises to deliver at or above customer expectations.
We also specialize in Manufactured stone, which has become extremely popular in Alberta due to the numerous types available at an affordable cost. Manufactured stone is fabricated using a lightweight concrete mix with different styles of moulds and colouring processes, making it resemble natural stone without needing to install any support systems. It has become a prevalent building material due to its resemblance to natural stone.
With our expertise, we guarantee that we will find the closest possible match whether the building or home is 10 or 100 years old. We have access to an extensive supply chain and know all brick types. We pride ourselves on being service leaders.
For thousands of years, brick has been used as one of the primary masonry materials due to its strength and durability in the harsh Canadian climate. Whether it is new construction on a brick veneer wall or an existing brick application, our certified masons have a wide breadth of experience dealing with all aspects of brick in both residential and commercial settings. Brick can be used on homes, pillars, doorsteps, walkways, chimneys, and load-bearing walls.
When dealing with Alberta’s constant freeze/thaw cycles, it is essential to protect your brick correctly. There are many factors associated with the deterioration of brick. The most common factors include water infiltration, lack of cap or flashing, the wrong type of mortar, plugging of weep vents, silicone in brick joints, or efflorescence. Efflorescence can be brought in from the salts used on the roads causing white stains on the brick. Both water and efflorescence will eat away at the brick over time, causing it to deteriorate.
Whether it is a block repair job, retaining wall, cutting out openings, or a completely new foundation wall, we specialize in concrete blockwork in all aspects. We thrive on providing expertise to create the ultimate demising walls.
