Traditional masonry replacement is treated as part of the conservation process. Only stonework that is structurally unsound is replaced and a qualified engineering approach is implemented. This is based on a sound familiarity of masonry profiles and a knowledge of historic constructional methods. An appreciation of geology underwrites an awareness of the need for compatibility in materials.
