Over time headstones and memorials require some restoration due to weather, age and neglect. Our stone masons are able to help you bring new life back into your loved one's headstone or memorial with our repair and maintenance services.
Some of the common restoration issues we can help you with are:
Over time high polish can wear off. This wear makes the stone look dull and dirty as well as making any small scratches on the surface very noticeable.
Certain cleaning products on the market contain acids. If these products are used on marble it can cause dull whitish spots where contact was made.
It is very common that stone over time will lose its seal. When this happens any oils and foreign bodies can cause your natural stone to stain.
Cracks and chips in stone can come from bad ground support, vibration, bad installations, settling or from having a heavy object dropped onto the stone.
This is quite common and is typically due to water minerals such as calcium and magnesium being left behind after the water evaporates.
There are man different reasons that could be the cause of your stone changing colour. It is why any stone being left in the weather must be sealed properly.
It is a sad time when you find that the memorial of a loved one has been attacked by a group or individual for no good reason.
