What is a Parapet Wall, and Why Do Buildings Have Them?
Parapet walls are common traits of flat roof buildings. They are the portion of the roof system that extends beyond the roofline and provides a protective barrier for the home or building. Long ago, parapet walls protected buildings and served as a line of defense from enemy attacks. Today's parapet walls are not only a classic architectural trait, but they still protect buildings from fire and damaging winds. Since these walls are the first line of defense, they often take the brunt of the impact from the weather-related force. Prolonged exposure requires parapet wall rebuild and restoration by professional masons like our team at Lujan & Sons Construction.
How We Rebuild Your Parapet WallsA parapet wall’s primary functions are to provide aesthetic design, conceal roof equipment, and offer some protection from the weather. They are not a load-bearing structure, so parapet wall rebuilding is a pretty straightforward process, provided the right equipment is used. Our process typically includes:
- Chipping away at deteriorated and loose pieces of the wall
- Removing old, degraded grout
- Preserving as much of the original brickwork as possible
- Rebuilding the wall using salvageable old brick with new replacement bricks where needed
Bring Parapet Walls Back to Life with Professional Repair
Exposure to all kinds of weather causes the most wear on the exterior of buildings. Parapet wall repair is often limited to the outer covering of the wall. Over time, water penetrates the first layer of masonry, causing the mortar to wash out. This process continues allowing easy access for water to find its way into the bricks. Parapets must be kept in good condition. Neglected repairs will worsen over time, and what once could have been an easy, routine repair will turn into a more expensive rebuild. We can provide you with a free, thorough parapet wall inspection and estimate. Regular assessment by a knowledgeable mason will help you stay ahead of any major repairs.

We have over four decades of experience and are bonded, licensed, and insured in the state of New Mexico to perform parapet wall rebuild and restoration. We don't use any subcontractors, so you can be sure that your wall rebuild will be completed by a trained employee of our company. Clay and limestone copings are used on the top of parapets to prevent water from entering the walls and damaging the inside. Copings that have been improperly installed or neglected over time won’t perform well and allow water into the walls. Chances are, your parapet walls are too high for you to check the condition yourself safely, or maybe you're unsure what to even look for in a deteriorating wall. That's where we come in.
