What are Lithomex stone repairs? Lithomex is a lime based, stone coloured, specially formulated repair mortar. It is the best product of its type, and we use this exclusively on all our Glasgow stone repairs.
Lithomex stone repairs are an excellent option when only the surface of the stone piece is eroded or damaged. These types of stone repairs are very cost effective compared to replacing a full stone with a new stone piece.
So how do we carry out Lithomex stone repairs?
Firstly, the eroded element of the masonry is chipped back using a toothed chisel until sound stone is exposed. We then insert stainless steel fixings to exposed masonry to ensure the subsequent repair has a strong grip to the fixings and the stone background.
We then apply lithomex in layers until the desired profile is roughly formed. Next, we rub down the nearly set lime mortar repair with abrasive blocks to achieve a perfect result.
