Understanding Masonry Restoration
Restoration of masonry on 19th century and older buildings must be undertaken with great care and understanding of the masonry components. Masonry structures have been built with a mortar of lime and sand for thousands of years. Repairs such as pointing, cleaning, brick /stone replacement and stone patching are part of the restoration process on historical buildings.
The process begins with the proper analysis of the problem, followed by use of the correct materials along with skilled workmanship to apply those materials. Mr Hemp House's personnel are trained in the use of these historical materials and methods and are backed by the over a 150 years of combined experiences.
Lime mortar is made of burned limestone, rather than ground limestone. The burning process gives the lime mortar properties required for historic masonry restoration.
