When it comes to stone repairs and restoration in Glasgow, we generally follow one of the two approaches:
Using a specially formulated stone-coloured repair mortar called Lithomex, we’ll chip back eroded or damaged elements from your building until good-quality stone is exposed. We’ll insert stainless steel fixings afterward which ensures that all repairwork holds together with the stone for decades to come.
Lithomex is then applied in layers to form the desired profile. Once the lime mortar repair is set properly, we rub it down with abrasive blocks which helps us achieve the desired outcome. We point the repair with a lime mortar, making the stone structure of your building absolutely immaculate. Lithomex repairs can effectively increase the lifespan of your building by a good 10-15 years.
With certain projects, it is best to replace damaged stone pieces with identical ones. Our stonemasons will get to work, taking templates of the stone that’s to be replaced. They will find a source stone that closely and faithfully matches the original in terms of texture and color. The new stone will then be shaped and dressed to match the replacement one.
Once the new stone has been fitted into place, it is pointed using lime mortar and cleaned off properly to provide for a nice and even finish. No matter what your stone repair or stone restoration needs, we can help. Contact us today to discuss project details and get a free quote as well.
