Preserving the Beauty and Integrity of Your Listed Building with Expert Stone Restoration


Stone Restoration

As a homeowner of a listed building in the UK, you have the privilege and responsibility of maintaining a piece of history. The South West of England is known for its stunning architecture, with many listed buildings showcasing the beauty of natural stone. However, the harsh weather conditions in the region can take a toll on the stonework, causing damage and deterioration over time. At White Acre Stonemasonry, we specialise in stone restoration services for listed buildings, helping homeowners preserve the character and integrity of their properties.


Common Types of Damage our Stone Restoration can Help With


The weather in the South West of the UK can be particularly challenging for listed buildings. Some of the most common types of stone damage we encounter include:

  • Erosion: Prolonged exposure to wind and rain can cause the stone to erode, leading to a loss of detail and structural integrity.

  • Cracking: Temperature fluctuations and moisture can cause the stone to crack, allowing water to penetrate and cause further damage.

  • Staining: Pollutants, algae, and moss can discolour the stone, detracting from its natural beauty.

  • Spalling: Freeze-thaw cycles can cause the stone to flake or break off in layers, compromising its strength and appearance.


The Importance of Stone Restoration

Stone restoration is crucial for maintaining the longevity and value of your listed building. By addressing damage early on, you can prevent more extensive and costly repairs down the line. Our skilled stonemasons at White Acre Stonemasonry have the expertise to assess the condition of your stonework and recommend the most appropriate course of action.


Our stone restoration services include:

  • Cleaning: We use gentle, non-abrasive methods to remove dirt, stains, and biological growth, revealing the stone's natural beauty.

  • Repointing: We replace damaged or missing mortar joints to ensure the structural integrity of the stonework.

  • Repair: Our stonemasons can repair cracks, chips, and other forms of damage, using traditional techniques and materials that match the original stone.

  • Replacement: In cases where the stone is beyond repair, we can source and install replacement stone that seamlessly blends with the existing masonry.
