Whatever the cause‚ a lack of maintenance, natural weathering or vandalism‚ stone or brick may need to be repaired or replaced. Perhaps alterations to a building require doorways or windows to be added or removed, yet the finished look must be 100 per cent original. Whatever the stone repair, however complex and demanding, Maysand has the knowledge and the practical ability to deliver the best possible result.
We are masters of the art of stone masonry restoration. Our techniques may involve dressing back and rebuilding eroded surfaces using carefully matched conservation mortars. Or we may carry out full-scale re-pointing. Whatever the job, we go to fantastic lengths to replicate traditional lime mortars using a whole host of techniques and ingredients to match, as nearly as possible, the colour and texture of the original stone. And we excel in identifying and finding replacement or additional masonry bricks or stone to suit each individual specification, tracking down reclaimed materials or special hand-made bricks where necessary.
When there is a need for masonry stabilisation, we do that too ‚ generally using the Thor Helical and Cintec ranges of reinforcing ties with application methods that are cost effective, concealed and non-disruptive.
