Inappropriate claddings and mortars, inappropriate and ineffective drainage goods and vegetation (attached to historic mortars) are some of the reasons why, over time, a stone construction can fail and need re-building. As Historic Building Specialists in Cornwall, Leslie Cornell Building Restoration Ltd are more than happy to help.
The first step in the process of stone construction is to prepare a solid foundation, the size of which is dependent on the type of wall being built and the weight on the wall head.
The stone is built up layer by layer and secured in place using a Lime and Sand mortar.
Once the construction is complete, it is then Lime pointed to maintain the breathability of the structure and enhance the beauty of the stonework.
