Full stone replacement is where a defective stone piece, such as a window cill or lintol, is cut out and discarded. A brand new sandstone piece is shaped to match the existing piece and fitted in its place.
This is a premium repair and the most expensive. However, this type of repair will last at least a century. We can replace any type of stone using this method. From a small flat stone piece to an intricately carved piece and everything in between.
It is normally recommended that any eroded structural stones, such as lintols and mullions, are replaced rather than restored. We will of course advise you on the best method for your particular building.
