Stone Repairs Glasgow with Lithomex

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.

Soon after this the new “stone” has any tool marks added to match original masonry. Finally the repair is pointed with a lime mortar leaving a repair looking for all the world like a new stone has been fitted.

Stonemasons Glasgow are often asked how we manage to match the colour of the existing stone so closely with our stone repairs. Ok, we’ll tell you our secret. We have a box of 100 samples of lithomex from our wonderful suppliers Masons Mortar Ltd. These cover every stone colour imaginable. We simply find the sample that closest matches the average colour of your stone.

If you turn that sample over, there is a wee code there. This code tells Masons Mortar what we need, and they give us the quantity we require. Simples. Just dont tell our competitors!

Lithomex stone repairs are a cost effective repair with an expected useful lifespan of 10 to 25 years or longer applied correctly. You can find out more about Lithomex HERE
