Stone Colour Matching
- Stone Repairs

Here at Spectrum, we are experts in bespoke stone repairs and stone colour matching. Not only are our expert stonemasons able to work with any detail of exterior stone on and around a building, including on steps, kerbstones, facades, and cornerstones, but they have years of training, skill, and experience in repairing and restoring stone to its original beauty – regardless of its age, colour, or condition. 

Indeed, at Spectrum we regard stonemasonry as a craft. One that requires genuine expertise, knowledge, and practice, and pride ourselves on our team’s eye for detail, agility and utmost integrity. We consider each and every stone repair project as unique and create bespoke solutions for almost all types of stone – no matter how ancient or damaged it may appear.   

We are also able to access difficult-to-reach places and heights without the need for scaffolding. This is a hugely beneficial and cost saving service that particularly came in useful when completing bespoke stone repairs on a residential property in Notting Hill, London.

The Project

Stone Colour Matching

Stone Repairs

  • Location:Notting Hill, London
  • Client:Property Manager
  • Project Duration:
  • Substrate:Stone
  • Access Method:Rope Access

The Site

Each stone was perfectly colour matched using state of the art technology so that it was impossible to tell that there was ever a repair carried out.

The Logistics

Although there were plenty of challenges during this project, including colour matching the stone, accessing difficult to reach stonework, and rigging our own specialist temporary anchor, our team of expert stonemasons was able to utilise their expert knowledge and training to exceed the client’s expectations and deliver exceptional results. 

All of our highly experienced stonemasons are IRATA trained and have completed extensive specialist stone repair and masonry courses. Their extensive knowledge was able to save the property’s existing stonework as typically, when the stone is badly damaged, it needs to be completely replaced. 

However, it is extremely difficult to replace a section of stonework as it is almost impossible to find both the correct colour and size. It is also very expensive to remake the exact same stone. Instead, thanks to their rigorous training in masonry, our team was able to take a small sample of the existing stone and recreate a compound that was breathable, structurally sound, and the exact same colour as the existing stonework.

Stone Colour Matching

Case Study

Precise Stone Colour Matching

With numerous unique challenges, and an extensive amount of stone repairs, the project in Notting Hill was particularly tricky. However, thanks to our wonderful team of expert stonemasons, the new stone compound was able to blend seamlessly with the existing stonework and leave the building looking good as new. 

As such, not only was the client delighted with the end result, but so were we. Indeed, being able to deliver another exceptional result to a satisfied client is always a significant highlight of any project we complete – whether it is a stone repair project, stone restoration project or stone colour matching project. 

We were also able save the client a significant sum money in access costs which is always a huge achievement. Our team of highly trained stonemasons, and agility to access otherwise difficult to reach places, allows us to reduce the need for costly scaffolding and save each of our clients up to 70% in access costs as well as ample time and unnecessary stress.
