Stone Indenting and Replacement Stone

The degree of stone indenting and/or replacement depends on the residual structural life of each stone. This requires a good understanding of the material as well as a thorough appraisal of the building itself to ensure minimal intervention and compatibility of repair material.

LTM masons have a wealth of experience in replacing and/or indenting failed stonework. The replacement stone is matched to compliment the existing masonry and hand dressed and finished using traditional hand tools and techniques.
