Stone Restoration

Ev-Air-Tight, Shoemaker, Inc. is experienced in the repair of stone facades; whether it is a small chip, large chip, crack, or large spall. Methods of repair include the use of specialized materials, dowels, pins, angles, patching compounds and adhesives.

  • Small chips often lend character to the building façade and don’t present a problem to the performance and integrity to the structure.
  • Large chips may be repaired using cementitious materials made for the purpose. This is the kind of material ordinarily used by the fabricators. Skillfully placed, these repairs are nearly invisible and are suitable for use at a building’s upper areas, or those areas not seen at close range.
  • Very large chips at high visibility areas are typically repaired using a “dutchman”. This is a separate piece of stone cut to fit tightly in the squared-up void.

Ev-Air-Tight is experienced in handling difficult repairs with a penchant for producing aesthetically pleasing repairs that have structural integrity.
