The beauty of sandstone structures is unparalleled. If you are fortunate to own a house where sandstone forms part of the structure, it is also necessary to maintain and do the upkeep of the structure properly. This isn't an easy task as a number of sandstone structures are prone to various defects over time. The stone in itself has many inherent problems. Fortunately, it isn't very difficult to correct and can be done with the right expertise.

Where masonry and stone repair are concerned, the first step is to understand what the issue affecting the stone is. In sandstones, there is a difference in the issues that we come across based on the type of sandstone that is used in the structure. This is usually dependent on the grain size and texture, and also depends on the source from where the stone was derived. Silica based sandstones are prone to alkaline chemical attacks, and require extensive care. There are also calcareous sandstones, which are very sensitive to acidic environments and treatments. The constitution is what determines the associated issues and the treatment to be meted out. So, what are you waiting for?
