Stone masonry is an age-old craft that requires skill, patience, and attention to detail. It’s a trade that has been passed down from generation to generation and has been used to construct some of the most magnificent structures in the world. However, as with any material, time and the elements can take their toll on stone. This is why our team of expert stone masons recently took on the challenge of restoring and rebuilding a stone portico that had suffered from subsidence.
The restoration project involved taking down and renewing some of the items on the portico before rebuilding it to its former glory. Our team of experienced masons worked tirelessly to ensure that every stone was perfectly placed, and every joint was expertly crafted. The portico was not only restored but also strengthened to withstand any future subsidence.
A striking feature of the restored portico was the lead work (carried out by Youngs Roofing). Their expert craftsmanship and attention to detail brought the portico to life, helping to highlight its grandeur and elegance.
Our restoration process also involved restoring the caps of the portico, which required extreme precision and skill. Our team of stone masons carefully chiseled and shaped each cap to ensure that they matched the original design of the portico. The finished caps were a testament to the skill and craftsmanship of our team.
This restoration and rebuild was a testament to the skill, patience, and attention to detail of our team of stone masons. The restored portico was not only strengthened but also enhanced in beauty. The restored caps were a testament to the precision and skill of our team, and we are so proud to see the final result.
