Stonework waterproofing     –  Stops water penetration of stonework

Our heritage stonemasons and stonemason consultants carry out specialist stone waterproofing treatments that enable stonework to breathe, enabling internal stonework moisture to escape as a vapour, but not let external moisture, such as rainwater to penetrate the stonework.  Much water penetrates stonework through fine hairline cracks which are open to rainwater; by using a stone waterproofer, this penetrates the cracks, repelling water and preventing further ingress of water.  

Ageing stone buildings and a climate that is known for its rainfall, UK older properties, especially stone properties can deteriorate, become porous and damp with age, enabling water to penetrate the building.  This water penetration can become a significant problem in stonework on buildings and can lead to secondary problems such as efflorescence, frost damage, blown stonework, black mould, moss, breakdown of mortar joints and carbonation damage.  Severe cases of water ingress into stonework cause water to build up within cavities and voids in stone walls, known as cavity fill water saturation. 

For waterproofing old stone walls or new stone walls, a single application of stone waterproofer will penetrate deeply into the stone structure and enable stonework to repel external moisture, but also let internal moisture out, keeping stone walls dry: an effective stone wall sealer / stone water sealant, probably the best masonry sealer for stone restoration in sandstone waterproofing, slate waterproofing and stone waterproofing

Our heritage stonemasons and stonemason consultants have used stone waterproofing techniques and products for over 30 years with great success as stone waterproofing contractors, waterproofing stone external walls
