On the corner of Wilbury Villas we restored two limestone porticos as part of a property development.
About half the carved detail to this portico required restoration. We removed any friable material and prepared the surface of the stone, creating a key for our mortar mix. For deep areas of restoration we fixed non-ferrous armatures using templates to plot the positions.
Working carefully and methodically around the different decorative features of the portico, restoration was complete in a few weeks.
