STONE REPLACEMENT

Stone Replacement is necessary when existing stone is broken or cracked beyond repair. Our skilled craftspeople examine each stone, determine which pieces require replacement, and work with industry professionals to simulate the appropriate texture, material, and color. Once a stone replacement is identified, damaged stones are removed carefully, the area is cleaned, and replacements are set in with an appropriate mortar and joint finish.

STONE POINTING

Stone Pointing is the process of replacing the mortar joints between stones to control moisture penetration of the building, repair cracks, reinforce the structure, and prevent additional damage. Premier has experience working with a variety of stone materials, from granite to limestone and Wissahickon schist to brownstone, each with its own properties and requirements to ensure a successful project. The pointing of stone buildings can be just as varied and, depending on the building style and design, our craftspeople can match the required mortar profile -ensuring the preservation of your building’s character and historic character.

Premier’s skilled craftspeople examine each mortar joint, prepare any area in need of repair, and point the joints to ensure the final product is a solid, appropriate mortar and joint finish. All preparation and pointing work is done by experienced craftspeople, guaranteeing that all stable, existing stone and materials is preserved and all new mortar matches the existing materials.
