Brick & Stone Window Sills

brick-stone-window-sills-combined

Brick and stone window sills are often seen around the windows of Toronto area home, which prevent water from damaging the wood above and below the window. As rain falls against the brickwork surrounding the window, it can wear away the mortar which keeps the bricks in place. Bowman Masonry Restoration suggests replacing damaged brick window sills with Indiana limestone, which not only visually beautifies the home but are long-lasting as well. These sills can be created in rectangular shapes, thus decreasing the amount of mortar that is exposed to the water.
