The thickness of stone walls makes them highly protective from the elements (such as high-speed winds and storms.) Keeping you and your property safe.
Stone’s thermal mass provides natural insulation which helps the planet and saves you money on energy bills.

These black spots are formed by a fungus that thrives in damp shady areas. While these black stains don’t necessarily damage your stone surface, these mould spores are unwanted and are downright ugly.
Leaving this problem untreated, will lead to the spread and growth of this black mould. It’s advised that you get a specialist to treat and restore your stonework as soon as the problem is first noticed.
