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 stone is built up layer by layer and secured in place using a Lime and Sand mortar.
