Will a stone repair match the existing stone?

Stone repairs can be accurately matched to the existing stone.

Using Lime Mortar to carry out stone repairs, we are able to match the existing stone with standard tools by our highly skilled craftsmen.

What is the purpose of lime in mortar?

Did you know that Lime has been used as a binder for over 2000 years. We still use Lime as the primary binder today in many mixes. Check out some of the many benefits of using Lime Mortar:

  • Excellent workability
  • High water retention – reducing cracking and water penetration into joints
  • Mortar stregnth – better accommodate structural movement
  • Freeze-thaw resistance – allows any moisture to evaporate
  • Self healing – Should hairline cracks develop, the combination of lime, moisture and carbon dioxide from the air can help to seal the crack

Added bonus! Lime Mortar has a very high degree of breatheability.  Why, I hear you ask is this a bonus.  Well it’s one of the keys to avoiding dampness and decay.

Over time stone repairs will age due to the changing of properties and appearance of materials.  This means that the stone and Lime Mortar pointing can weather with age, causing a dullness or discoloration.  Unfortunatley we all age, its all about ensuring that we age gracefully right?


We are trusted, highly skilled craftsmen, that put you and your building first!
