    Repairing bathstone

    Stoneworkers

    We have a listed grade 2 house built in 1850's. Over the years previous owners varnished and painted the internal bathstone windows (all 9 of them) . I have painstakingly worked on getting this off (so far done 3). There is damage, not just on the joints but all over including the top curves. How do I get a really nice repair finish without it looking bodged??

    "Depending on how bad the damage is you may need to
    replace stones or get an indent repair done.
    If the damage is minimal you could get away with using
    bathstone mortar repair.
    Do you have any pictures you can send?

    "Hi Martyn,

    You would have to restore the mouldings and other detail of the bath stone with restoration mortar, this being lime based, please do not use cement based products as this will suffocate the bath stone, in turn decay will occur..

    We are a specialist restoration company and can help if you need.

    Hope this helps

    Regards

    Ritchie"
