Plastic Stone Repair and Grouts for Historic Building Restoration

 

Plastic stone repair promoted by the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings is a recognised method of repairing historic buildings whilst retaining the maximum amount of the historic fabric. At a slightly larger scale, grouting is also used to retain historic walls and structures and the day will also look at the latest progress in the development of grouts. This training will provide you with an update on materials and techniques for both these basic restoration methods. The event will cover:

  • The arguments for and against replacing historic stone and brickwork & choosing the right material for plastic stone repair and good working practice
  • Grout mixes and their compatibility with old buildings
  • Practical demonstrations and workshop
