As the years progress some of our old public buildings are falling into disrepair due to wear and tear and pollution.
So restoration of these sandstone iconic sites is becoming more and more urgent. Especially some of the carvings. But it is very important to use the traditional methods for the restoration and the correct mortars.
This often means Sydney sand and lime. There are still some stockpiles of “Bondi Blonde” and “Glebe Gold”
available but it is becoming in short supply- and the price is escalating.
But restoration work is very important. Sea walls are also showing signs of major damage.
We at The Stonemasons pride ourselves on all of these forms of restoration.
