Natural stones are highly durable!
Even in harshest weather conditions, natural stone features last more than a lifetime. But there are times, your rock fountain, stone wall, granite/slate pavement, or stacked stone feature can receive damage because of abuse or some impact.
The best part of building natural stone surfaces in your home is that you can repair them or find a replacement for a beyond-damaged stone easily.
This article gives you a few tips and tricks on repairing stones used in the outdoor spaces of your home –
Evaluate the Damage –
Before you pick tools and materials required for the repair, it would be wise to assess the severity of the damage.
If the stone has been damaged into small chips and in multiple pieces, you might not want to repair it. Because there is no permanent fix for this situation. You will need to buy a replacement for the damaged stone and install it again.
Buying the Replacement –
If you are planning to replace the stone which has been damaged, take a piece of the stone to a stone store to find a color match. You can also order the same from a trusted stone tile store online.
Get the stone for your exact requirement (sq. ft.).
To replace the stone, you will need to clean the area and remove the debris. Wear safety gear and use a hammer and chisel to remove the broken pieces of the stone.
Collect and dispose the debris; or maybe you can turn the debris into dust and use it as base or bed in other floor projects.
Once the damaged stone has been removed, it is time to place the replacement stone. Use the right material to fix the stone.
Allow the replacement stone to settle. Apply a sealant, if required.
