When our client first contacted us, the facade of the circa 1860 cottage located in Western Victoria had never seen a traditional restoration. In over 150 years, weathering and general deterioration of the mortar jointing, also known as pointing, was highly evident.
Although the stone was in very good condition and with clear indication that it was very well built, mortar repair and repointing was integral in rejuvenating the old bluestone structure.
The client was extremely happy with their new entrance. The repointing method used was traditional ribbon pointing and it lasts for a very long time.
Here is a before and after of another aspect of the same building. A massive improvement.
