Stone is a material that is common in old buildings, and as such, it can need restoration and rejuvenation. Because so many of these buildings are heritage classified, they need to be carefully and sympathetically restored by a qualified stonemason. The restoration process can include such things as replacing deteriorated stone, treating salt damp that may have affected the stonework, repointing the stone, cleaning the stone using specialised methods, and using poultice techniques. They will also check that the foundations are stable.
Stonework may also need repairing. This stone work can include feature walls, retaining walls, driveways, paving, cladding, fencing and so on. The stonemason will perform an analysis of the stone and recommend repairs. This could be to the foundations, replacing crumbled or damaged stone, replacing the mortar and repointing, straightening leans, cleaning off potentially damaging dirt and moss, and even rebuilding where necessary.
