Brick and mortar are both porous, meaning they take in water naturally, but when excessive moisture is absorbed and temperatures fluctuate, water expands and contracts inside of the masonry, causing deterioration. Brick is stronger and able to last 100 years, sometimes more. Mortar, on the other hand, can deteriorate and wear away in just a couple of decades.
