Mortar Restoration – One of the most common restoration procedures is mending or replacing mortar. Mortar type differs from property to property with sandstone and brick requiring different mortar compositions to provide a substantial weatherproof fix, ensuring a strong bond for your brickwork or sandstone.
Stone or Block Indenting – Traditional properties are often constructed with stone and individual blocks which, can become damaged. Complete removal of these blocks can be problematic, impinging on property safety and expensive for a complete replacement. Indenting is a form of repair, rather than full block replacement, and requires that a piece of stone similar to the existing exterior is pieced or laid and securely fixed to the building, ensuring a cost effective and safe repair to your property.
Cornice – Lifted from the Italian language means ‘Ledge’ and is generally any horizontal decorative molding that crowns a building. The cornice over a door or window, for instance, or along the top of an exterior wall. A simple cornice can be formed just with a crown moulding. The function of the projecting cornice of a building is to throw rainwater free of the building’s walls. In residential building practice, this function is handled by projecting gable ends, roof eaves, and gutters. However, house eaves may also be called “cornices” if they are finished with decorative molding. Still considered by many as just decorative, Cornices have a distinct purpose in most cases – to remove rainwater from roof areas. Repair or replacement from Stone Restoration Glasgow Roofing service, guarantees your property will be damp proof and moisture free.
Lintels and Mullion – Window areas of your property may contain these two elements. The mullion is the vertical element found between the window and doors and as well as an essential mainstay of your building, the area can act as a decorative piece also. Lintels are the horizontal parts above your window and the mullion will provide the locating point for this piece. Weather and climate can erode or discolour both Lintel & Mullion areas and can detract from your property’s cosmetic appearance. Repairing or renewing these two area will provide your property with a much needed makeover, improving appearance.
