Facades carries out much restoration of defective or failing sections of stonework, on buildings throughout the UK. This is a core element of our business and we use quality lime products for the care and conservation of historic buildings.
Network of Stone and Brick Specialists
We have a close working relationship with several reclaimed stone and brick specialists, including Masons Mortar and Remmers UK. These heritage building material suppliers use products that restore and protect the building for the future without compromising its historical integrity.
We use quality lime-based products, and our network of suppliers enable us to offer a quick colour match service, to get a near-identical match and drastically reduce lead times.
Our restoration team are fully trained in the use of all heritage products and materials. As we work with the leading suppliers, you can be assured of quality products. We’re able to source new and reclaimed stone that is a correct geological match for the existing stone.
If required, we also offer a testing service. This involves taking away a small piece of the stone to get it tested, ensuring an accurate match and allowing the building’s original look to be preserved.
