This 1840s Carriage House was repointed in the fall of 2016. The random rubble Limestone was quarried nearby and is notable for its thin beds and brown hues, not prevalent in this area.
Our scope of work included repointing the stone walls with a hydraulic lime mortar- a permeable material that is frost and sulphate resistant, and contains no Portland cement. Several Quoins (cornerstones) were replaced, and their original hand tooling replicated (see pictures). We also installed a cut Limestone sil in an upper storey doorway.
