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.
