Mortar joints are serviceable for 35 years or more when properly installed. The masonry units themselves, brick, stone, or concrete block, may have a serviceable life of 100 years or more.

As with any building product continuously exposed to the elements, masonry is subject to weathering. Acids in the rain, seismic movement, building settlement, freezing and thawing cycles, impact damage, and dirt take their toll. Regular maintenance is recommended to prevent moisture infiltration to the wall, causing cracks or spalling in the brick, stone, or concrete block.
