Most of the stone buildings in Fife are built of relatively thick stone walls. Many of these walls are Ashlar dressed coursed sandstone pointed and built-in lime mortar. This traditional method of the building enables the structure to breathe.
A majority of the older buildings in Fife have been repaired over the years using modern materials such as cement, This has in some cases led to damaged stonework which has resulted in the need for extensive stone repairs.
Repairing traditional buildings with modern or non-traditional materials will accelerate stone decay, this is why you need stonemasons who are experts in using lime.
Many buildings in the Fife area have been pointed in very hard cement over years which can accelerate the decay of the masonry. Our team are fully qualified stonemasons, covering Fife, who have extensive knowledge and understand the best materials to use. We ensure that we match the original material and style of pointing.
