Lime Mortar Surface Repairs to Stone

Lime based mortars can be used as a surface repair medium for certain types of natural stone. Carefully specified and applied lime mortars can act as a ‘plastic repair’ to consolidate and preserve the original fabric, whilst allowing the architectural integrity of a building façade to be maintained or restored.

Surface repairs can form a cost-effective and compatible alternative to stone indenting or replacement, providing it is correctly specified and applied by skilled operatives. LTM masons have a wealth of experience in restoring intricate masonry detailing using traditional mortars and natural pigments.
