Front Facade Restoration

Our experienced restorers can break down and rebuild brick facades. We salvage and reuse old masonry parts wherever possible and combine these reusable masonry parts with old styled bricks to give the restoration that century-old aged look while being functionally new and strong. We make the old come alive again by adding to the front façade for great curb appeal of the building.

What is Stone Masonry?

Stone masonry uses stone units bonded together with mortar and comes in two main types;

Rubble Masonry

Ashlar Masonry

What is Random Rubble Masonry?

Using stones that are undressed or hammer dressed, random rubble masonry is marked by stones that are irregularly shaped and non-uniform. There are two main categories to consider.

Courced

The stones are laid in layers of equal height and the courses are fairly level. Usually found in the building of residential walls and is considered a superior form of masonry to uncoursed rubble masonry.

Uncourced

The stones are laid without forming courses and the overall appearance is varied. Stones of different sizes and shapes are used. This form of stone and masonry is often referred to as the roughest form of masonry.

What is Square Rubble Masonry?

Also consisting of two main categories, square rubble masonry features stones that are squared by hammer or chisel dressing prior to laying.

Coursed

Dressed stones are laid in courses of varying heights and with uniform joints, but the height of the stones in each course is the same. Often found in the construction of city buildings and some residential buildings where they give a natural appearance.

Uncoursed

Dressed stones are laid without making any courses and the stones are of different sizes, arranged in irregular patterns. Used often where stones of varying sizes are widely available.

Polygonal Rubble Masonry

Providing a truly unique look, stones are hammer finished to create an irregular polygonal shape. Stones are then positioned so that the face joints are displayed irregularly in all directions.

What is Flint Rubble Masonry?

The types of stones used here are either flints or cobbles and they vary in both thickness and width. The face placement may be coursed or uncoursed. While the stones used are hard, they are also brittle.

What is Dry Rubble Masonry?

A type of masonry where mortar is never used for the joints. While this makes the overall cost cheaper, it does require a more precise and careful installation. Cannot be used for load-bearing walls.

What is Ashlar Fine Masonry?

Using extremely fine joint preparations, ashlar masonry requires skill and precision. The height of the blocks used should be kept the same, although the courses can vary. Ashlar masonry comes in many different categories.

What is Ashlar Rough Tooled Masonry?

With the exposed face dressed with rough tooling, and the beds and sides dressed with a fine chisel, this form of masonry aims to have the angles, sizes and edges all kept in order with little variation.

What is Ashlar Rock or Quarry Faced Masonry?

Masonry aimed to give a larger overall appearance, ashlar rock faced masonry keeps the stones true to their original size as only light hammering is used on the faces.

What is Ashlar Block In Course Masonry?

Combining both rubble masonry and ashlar masonry, each stone face is hammered and the heights are also kept the same. Courses can vary in height. Usually found in heavy applications such as bridges or retaining walls.

What is Ashlar Rock or Quarry Faced Masonry?

Masonry aimed to give a larger overall appearance, ashlar rock faced masonry keeps the stones true to their original size as only light hammering is used on the faces.

What is Ashlar Chamfered Masonry?

Masonry aimed to give a larger overall appearance, ashlar rock faced masonry keeps the stones true to their original size as only light hammering is used on the faces.
