Masonry Maintenance & Renovation
Home ownership brings the responsibility of maintenance. If you are planning to sell your home, broken mortar joints and masonry cracks could be the deal-breaker for the sale. Structural shifting over time will cause weak mortar to break loose from the brick or stone material. We have masonry experts to tuck point and revive the old mortar.
See how our talented stonemasons transformed this outdated interior wall and fireplace into a bright, chic space that combines the hushed tranquility of nature with classic Old World charm. Before Borders Masonry was brought in to renovate this room, the dark grout stood out in harsh contrast against the white Austin limestone, taking away focus from their alluring fossil inset, and making the room feel dark and uninviting. We used a special mortaring process called slurry mortar, or slurry grouting, to update the stone wall with a chic, white-washed, natural vibe. The result is a bright, peaceful space that feels both sophisticated and cozy, the perfect place to entertain guests and share a meal with loved ones.
Our experienced stonemasons carefully preserved the fossil shell inset to create a stylish, updated look, while maintaining the natural aesthetic that our clients loved.
