Stone colour matching is the process by which we identify and match any renovations to the exterior of a stone property. Due to the intricate nature of stonework and its complex texture and naturally occurring minerals, colour matching requires a combination of laboratory analysis work and experienced stone technicians with a good eye checking the stone in all light conditions. Apart from sending a sample to a laboratory, our operatives can also colour match through the application of specialist paints, using proven techniques to ensure the colours blend to perfection!
At Spectrum we fully understand the value of choosing the correct remedy to restore any building, seeking solutions which make our clients happy. This careful colour matching approach applies to any stone we colour match, including gritstone, limestone or roofing stone, and we apply our technical knowledge as much as our eyes for colour to blend old and new stone on a building exterior.
All buildings are subject to the Water Cycle which sees in varying climatic conditions them subjected to temperature, solar radiation, airflow which vary whether the water is present as a gas, liquid or solid. Regional variations and orientation of the building also bring other conditions into play. On North facing elevations biological matter agents such as algae will become more prevalent, whilst airborne carbonic pollutant will be deposited on surfaces. Buildings in coastal areas will also be subject to salt deposition from airborne sea spray close to the coast. The result is the stone's weathering, which can either add to the patina of a building or make it look dilapidated and neglected. At some point, the effects of this constant change in temperature and climate will lead to visible damage, resulting in structural problems if left untreated.
