Stone Services

Traditional Roofing and Building have more than 20 years’ experience in all areas of stone work, including chimney renovation and repairs. We offer chimney reconstruction, brick chimney repairs, partial chimney rebuilds, roof line up chimney rebuilds, and total chimney rebuilds.

Cracking, water leaking, element exposure, usage, time, and lack of maintenance can render your chimney structurally vulnerable, resulting in the need for chimney repairs or total chimney rebuild.

* Regular Chimney Inspections Are Essential

It is essential that a regular chimney inspection is carried out to ensure that there is no risk of fire hazard within the flue such as tar build up or nesting animals. A professional inspection will also check for signs of the chimney structure becoming unsafe due to old age or weather damage.

Services & Repairs

Restoration of Mortar – there are many types of mortar but no matter which type is used to hold brickwork together, it needs to be maintained so that the weather does not penetrate the structure of the property.

Natural Stone Indents – many older, traditional style properties may be constructed from stone, pieces of which may be damaged. Removing this block may cause structural damage and so indenting is a form of repair. A piece of stone will be laid or pieced into place, held securely that building is not compromised. Clearly, this means that local stone must be sourced and used to maintain the integrity of the building.

Mullion & Lintels – these two components in a building can be found around the window. The mullion is the vertical element found between the window and doors etc. and can be a decorative piece too. Lintels are the horizontal elements above the window and the mullion will provide the anchor point for this piece.

Cornice & Detailed Work – Cornices along with other forms of detailed work, are pieces of architecturally designed pieces on the outside of a building that creates the character as well as its heritage. Over time, they erode due to the weather. Restoring these details can bring a building back to life.
