Bath stone masonry work

Masonry Work

Bath stone is one of the most beautiful building materials available, and in Bath we are lucky enough to be surrounded by plenty of Bath stone buildings. However as our seasons become harsher and time goes on, maintaining your masonry work is more crucial than ever. With rapid changes in temperature, even as often as one day to the next, masonry starts to weather quickly. Our team of stonemasons can assist with repointing, minor and major repairs, lead capping and more. 

As beautiful as Bath stone is, it can really show the dirt. We use doff stone cleaning which is must more gentle than pressure washing. The temperature of the water is high, but the pressure is kept low. And less water is used meaning it is a more environmentally friendly option and prevents damage to the stone work. Therefore also means the stone dries more quickly which is vital when dealing with porous Bath stone.

If the pointing of your property becomes loose and starts to fail it can lead to a whole host of other problems, especially if moisture starts to penetrate the joints. Hence why it is important to keep an eye on your pointing to ensure that it remains strong and intact. 

Stone work can be completed alongside other roofing work or as a standalone job. Therefore it is a great way to make the most of having scaffolding up and addressing any issues whilst working on the roof.
