Weather takes its toll on cut stone, but in the right hands, it can always be given new life.
Badly weathered stone can be renewed in a number of ways. Failed pieces can be cut out and replaced with new stone. That can be very expensive if the stone is structural.
Other ways to renew stone are
A face graft: A two inch in depth piece is cut away from the face. A new two inch piece of stone is then pinned and epoxied onto the face. This is then sanded and dressed to match the original.
A small graft or Dutchman: The removal of a failed or damaged section of stone and epoxying in place a new piece of stone. The Dutchman is then dressed to match adjacent stone.
Re-dressing: Some stone can be brought back to life by taking a 1/4 inch of the stone off the face, then cutting any detail back in to the stone.
Abbey will work with a customer to get the job completed and stay within their budget.
