Rope Access Stone Repairs - Stone Restoration

When Existing Property Management discovered a damaged stone ledge on one of their Chelsea properties, they turned to us to fix the problem. 

Having worked with them for a long time, they knew we had the expertise and experience to complete the job to thehighest possible standard. In this case, we had to complete a full stone repair on a ledge, which provided a further challenge; we had to work at height.

   Overcoming an array of challenges, this case study is a classic example of why Spectrum is the perfect port of call when it comes to stone repairs in London.

The Site

The Logistics

When it comes to stone repairs in London, very few companies can offer the specialist rope access stone masonry service that we can at Spectrum. This means from the start we saved the client significant sums of money, because we don’t have to factor in the expense of scaffolding or cherry picker rental.

There’s also a time aspect to consider. Our rope access stone masons were able to reach the job quickly and complete a thorough assessment of the task at hand in a fraction of the time it’d have taken to build an appropriate height scaffold tower. In this case we had a strict 2-day window to get the job done, so we couldn’t waste a single second waiting for scaffolding to be erected or a cherry picker to be delivered to site.

Finally, the expertise of our stonemasons meant we were able to carry out a colour match stone mix on site, which, again, saved the client a lot of time and money. We saved the stone colour matching lab fees and the inevitable time delay, which could have made the whole project redundant by taking us over our allotted time frame.

Our team of highly credible stone restorers were able to find the exact colour match for the stone by sending it to the lab.

Our Specialists

 Our specialist rope access teams contain fully qualified and experienced stone masons, having completed their full training on the job (typically a 30 month training programme). They also have full IRATA abseiling training to ensure their safety and professionalism when working at height - something that sets Spectrum apart

Solution Driven

After a lot of consultation and planning, we managed to do the stone colour matching on site. If we weren’t able to do this, we’d have had to send a colour sample to the lab. Then they’d make an exact colour match stone mix and return it to site, ready to be repaired. Stone colour matching labs in London are very busy, so we didn’t know how long we’d have to wait. 

Thankfully, the expertise of our stonemasons meant we were able to do a colour match on-site and get the full stone repair done within the time frame.  

Thanks to a combination of experienced stonemasons, excellent stone colour matching abilities and the capability of effectively working at height, the Spectrum team were able to successfully repair the stone ledge in the time frame and at a price point, the client was happy with. Although there were significant challenges with the job, a successful project was delivered.
