At the Glasgow Roofing Service we undertake stonework with the exacting care and craft it deserves offering both traditional and modern techniques to ensure we meet your design specifications. Not only does stonework restoration change the aesthetic of your property, but enhancing both internal and external brickwork will increase the value of your home.
Our stonework examples include:
Repointing with Glasgow Roofers
Pointing is the term given to the ‘finish’ that is between the bricks or stone used to build your house, repointing is the method of renewing the external components of masonry construction. Weather naturally corrodes pointing so maintenance is needed to keep your brickwork in optimum condition. Our Glasgow Roofers will offer expert pointing maintenance in throughout your whole property whether it be part of the property’s chimney, external walls or garden feature.
Stonework and sandstone restoration
Sandstone is a material that naturally deteriorates over time, and can be damaged due to cement pointing which traps moisture and prevents the stone from breathing. Using traditional lime mortar for pointing allows the porous sandstone to breathe with moisture being released as it should. With a high-quality restoration service throughout Scotland, we ensure all our stone and sandstone restoration are undertaken by fully qualified and skilled craftsmen.
We’re known for our impeccable stonework with landscaping and pride ourselves on attention to detail. A landscape consultation with the Glasgow Roofing Service will allow us to get an insight to your taste, lifestyle needs and aesthetic requirements. We have skilled tradesmen who are passionate about landscaping ready to plan, design and install patios, paving and unique garden solutions.
The popularity of bricks can be traced to the revival of brick-making in eastern England in the late 13th and early 14th centuries. This was a direct result of lack of local stone, an increasing shortage of good timber. When conserving fine brickwork it’s vital expert professionals who can use traditional methods, material and tools. Only where appropriate the Glasgow Roofing Service use modern techniques.
