August 20, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm$10
This workshop investigates stone and brick as building materials, and examines some common issues associated with their deterioration and repair. Participants will learn how to assess mortar conditions, how and when to re-point (often referred to as tuckpointing), and how and when to replace stones or bricks, and the importance of selecting and using the right replacement mortar. Please feel free to bring photographs of your stone and masonry questions to the demonstration. Our instructor is happy to look them over with you!
