Restore Your Home's Timeless Beauty with White Acre Stonemasonry's Stone Restoration Services


Stone Restoration

As a homeowner in the South West of England, you take pride in the unique character and charm of your property. Many of the region's homes feature stunning stonework that has stood the test of time, but even the most durable materials can suffer damage over the years. At White Acre Stonemasonry, we specialise in stone restoration services that can help you preserve and protect your home's architectural heritage.


The Importance of Stone Restoration

Stone restoration is the process of repairing, replacing, and maintaining the stonework on your property. Whether you have a listed building or a more modern home with stone features, regular maintenance is essential to prevent damage and ensure the longevity of your stonework.

Some common issues that can affect stonework include:


  1. Weathering and erosion: Exposure to the elements can cause stone to crack, crumble, or become discoloured over time.

  2. Structural damage: Shifting foundations, settlement, or impact damage can cause stones to become loose or fall out of place.

  3. Biological growth: Moss, algae, and lichen can grow on stone surfaces, leading to discolouration and deterioration.

How White Acre Stonemasonry Can Help

At White Acre Stonemasonry, we have years of experience in stone restoration and a deep understanding of the unique challenges that come with working on listed buildings and historic properties. Our skilled craftsmen use traditional techniques and high-quality materials to repair and replace damaged stonework, ensuring a seamless blend with the existing structure.

Some of the stone restoration services we offer include:




  1. Repointing: We can carefully remove damaged mortar and replace it with a matching mix, strengthening the joints between stones and preventing water ingress.

  3. Cleaning and conservation: We use gentle, non-abrasive methods to clean stone surfaces, remove biological growth, and apply protective treatments to prevent future damage.
