Why You Should Care For Your Stone

You may be asking yourself: “is it really that important to care for/conserve my stonework?” 

Well, if you want your property to continue to hold its value and avoid expensive replacement costs in the future, then maintaining your stone, and repairing it as soon as the damage is visible, is crucial.

Common Issues

Stone damage is a very common problem for property managers throughout the UK, and there are reasons for these defects.

Certain stone types such as limestone can be negatively affected by acid rain, and when these stone surfaces encounter rainwater that's mixed with acidic compounds, they can begin to disintegrate. Leaving the surface, of your once-perfect stone facade, appearing dull and cracked.

In more severe cases, stone can decay. Stone begins to decay when there's moisture entering the surface, and this unwanted moisture is unable to escape from the stone. Eventually, the stone will begin to decompose.

Human contact can be another reason why your stonework is beginning to break down. If you have stone steps for example, if you regularly walk and use these steps then you can’t expect them to shine as much as they once did, when they were first installed.

However, in most cases, the damage to your stone is completely reversible. You’re just in need of a team of experts to restore it for you.
