Instead of reinventing the wheel, we have revived an old design and added to it.
Bluestone, also known as Basalt, is an extremely versatile construction material. Traditionally, it has been utilised as a paving material and also extensively in aggregate form contained in modern concrete mixes.
Knowing that Basalt has more to offer than just being used as an aggregate, the STONE BRICK™ Architectural Cladding System will impress even the most avid critic .

Remember, mortar has a 28 day curing time.
Although it is still curing, the mortar repair and re-pointing are getting gradually lighter.
After we knock out the joints, the replacement material will be placed and shaped to create what is known as ribbon pointing. The idea of ribbon pointing is to effectively ‘flatten’ the wall.
the balance that this will create will be surprising and should come up really well. More to come…
