ARROW MASONRY RESTORATION is a small outfit located in Eastern Oregon that specializes in old masonry restoration and repair.  We perform work on both commercial and residential structures located  in eastern Oregon and Washington utilizing years and types of experiences that date back to around 1959.   
In addition to repairing and cleaning old masonry structures, we also do a wide range of services to maintain and protect our customers' existing masonry structures from future damaging water intrusions.

We also work with older materials such as glass block, glazed tile units, concrete masonry units, modular brick and all other out-dated, now-specialized materials.  Refurbishing adjoining windows and doors is a specialty of ours too.


                              When quality and professionalism are important, we will be there for you.

  Vines growing up the side of a brick wall strongly indicates moisture present inside walls due to deteriorating mortar joints caused from water intrusions. 

These vines were so imbedded in the brickwork, a truck was necessary to carefully separate vines from brick.

Portland, Oregon


    The brickwork on the 33rd and 34th floors of Portland's Fountain Plaza Koin Center showed signs
 of serious deterioration when water intrusion through the mortar joints were examined and the deterioration discovered.
    The moisture intrusion was stopped by first recognizing the problem, dismantling the damaged
brickwork and rebuilding the damaged walls and inset walls with new brick and mortar.
