Marble Repairs and Restoration Sydney
Stone has been the most common material used in construction because of their performance, and that calls for the use of best stones to construct the ion of different structures. However, stone suffers wear and deterioration with time especially in the modern time where there is increased urbanization which comes with increased pollution and this, makes the stone suffer wear and tear more rapidly. If the stone is not protected well, there can be dirt accumulation, spilling and this leads to loss of integrity of the structure among other things that are associated with aging of stone structures. We cannot talk about marble without limestone coming into the picture, and thus the following paragraphs will discuss marble repairs and restoration.
Limestone on its part refers to many types of sedimentary rocks that contain a full or small percentage of calcium carbonate found in the upper part of the earth’s crust — many of these constituents from marine deposits that have accumulated for many million years and which has almost similar characteristics such as their white or gray color. Calcium carbonate transforms to marble when you subject limestone to intense pressure and heat. The main aim of transforming limestone to marble is in an effort of changing it to a much finer texture since original limestone cannot be polished.
The significance of marble repair and restoration
Most of the modern building employs the use of marble in the exterior due to its fine texture, and thus it is the external appearance of the building where it tells the historical characteristics of the building. The significance which the building has plus is style tells a lot about the building not forgetting the external design and features. It is not in doubt that it is paramount to treat the external part of a building with great care as changes of the exterior can apply any changes in fashion and taste. Many craftsmen apply their designs in the exterior to bring out authority or to characterize a specific building of certain property. Such historic features that suffer deterioration should be replaced, and if repairs are necessary, they should be to maintain a building standard. At Geova stone solutions we repair the external structures of a building, and if a replacement needs to be done, we replace the stone with the same features and design to maintain the originality of a building.
Marble Repair and Restoration procedure
Our first step on a stone structure is to perform an accurate assessment of the building plus all its external features to determine their condition. This gives our worker the ability to know why each feature placed in that place and the way such a design was intended to capture the overall building design or other architectural needs. The rest of the work involves analyzing the cause of the deterioration, and since water is the one cause of degradation, different ways are devised to capture different ways of countering this ill. Any cavity is drained, mass rocks made to allow them to have fresh air and seals are used to finish barrier walls.
