Q: How do I deal with mortar joints?
Mortar joints make all the difference
between professional and unprofessional looking stonework.
The most important thing is to keep your work neat and
clean. It is easy to clean the mortar off the stone while
the mortar is still weak. It is a lot of work - if not
impossible to get mortar off after it has set up.
Q: What do I do to repair a loose stone?
If the mortar is still solid in the
hole, remove the stone and clean it well. Put a good
adhesive on the back of the stone as well as in the hole it
came out of and re set the stone. You may have to brace it
until the adhesive sets.
Q: What do I do if the mortar is crumbling or broken
Remove any loose stone and
mortar, clean the stone well, re-mortar it into place and
redo your mortar joints. Use bonding agent in your mortar.
Q: Why is rock falling off the wall after the job is
Stones were disturbed
before they had set up. Stones were not tapped into the
mortar to create suction. Note enough mortar was put behind
the rocks or it was poor mortar. Bonding agent was not used
on your Masonry wall. Poor rock that flakes off like mica
was used (not our rock!). Dirty rock was used. The building
settled and cracked the stonework. The footings were not
adequate or settled too muck, (or perhaps a frost heave
caused it). The metal lath was not secured well enough. The
Q: Why is the mortar starting to crumble and fall
You did not use enough
cement in your mortar. You used bad cement. There was dirt
in your sand, or you used poor sand. The sand must be sharp
and clean. There was salt in your sand The moisture was
sucked out of your mortar too fast so it dried too quickly
and did not have a chance to cure properly. Bonding agent
helps to prevent this. Mortar was used that should have been
thrown out. Do not add water to drying out mortar unless you
really know what you are doing. Once the chemical reaction
has taken place, the mortar could be shot. Your mortar may
GRANITE Granite is an
important structural and decorative stone. It’s used for immense
structural work due to its high compressive strength and
durability. It is the hardest structural stone. Granite’s rich
colors, stiffness and
density, make it an ideal choice for flooring, counter tops,
vanities as well as exterior applications. Many stylish patterns
and colors make granite the most versatile and trendy of all
MARBLE Marble has been
valued for thousands of years for its rich palette of beautiful
colors and appearance and is perfect, pretty much anywhere in
the house. Marble stones consist of limestone that has undergone
heat and pressure. A transformation process takes place when the
weight of overlying material, pressure from crystal collisions
and heat from the earth's core generate temperatures in excess
of 1800ºF.Texture of marble depends on the form, size and
uniformity of grains.
TRAVERTINE Travertine is generally used
for floors, walls, countertops and for outside as cladding and
is generally filled with grout before it is honed or polished,
which produces a uniform surface more like other marbles.
Unfilled travertine is also quite beautiful, and is often seen
as exterior surfaces of buildings. Travertine stones result from
hot spring water penetrating up through underground limestone.
LIMESTONE The soft
limestone stones are ideal for today's more casual and
comfortable environments. Generally these soft beiges and tans
are suitable for bathrooms, fireplaces, counters and floors.
Limestone is a sedimentary rock that is formed at the bottom of
lakes and seas, as organic matters settle to the bottom.
SLATE The lively
colors and unique texture make slates appropriate for interior
as well as exterior applications. Slate is formed of compressed
layers of sediments formed under ocean. Since it is formed in
layers, it can easily
be split to expose beautifully textured surfaces. The usual
colors of slates are earthy browns, beiges, yellows, black,
dark-grays, and greenish-gray, pinks, purples and copper are
SANDSTONE Sandstone consists of sand
covered by silica, iron and lime. Cementing material determines
the color of sandstone, iron sandstones are reddish, brownish;
carbonaceous, black; siliceous, white and argillaceous, earthy
to buff. The hardness of sandstones is important in deciding
suitability for applications for sandstone.
QUARTZITE Quartzite stones are the same
with slates, but with higher content of quartz in them, which
gives them, a bright texture. They are very similar to slates.
Like slates, quartzites are used for various applications
depending on their hardness.
