Wet Stone Walling from our skilled, experienced team.

Wet Stone Walling

Wet Walling (sometimes known as Mortared Walling) is the construction of traditional stone walls, held together with mortar. As the stones are not a uniform size (like brickwork) this gives a more natural look and feel. There is a huge choice of materials available and the wall can also be pointed in a number of different styles, making it perfect for a feature wall.

Lime mortar pointing. Softer and more porous than cement alternatives allowing moisture to evaporate.

Lime Mortar Pointing

Traditional Lime Mortar Pointing offers a host of benefits over modern cement. Lime mortar is softer and more porous than cement based alternatives, allowing moisture to evaporate through the mortar rather than through the stonework. Moisture doesn't build up as a result which prevents any corrosive salts forming and causing erosion of the stone.
