About Foundation Work
The most important part of your house is the foundation, and we give it the serious attention it deserves. Stonehenge Masonry offers a LIFETIME warranty on full foundation restorations. We work on all foundation types, including concrete foundations but with special talent at restoring old stone foundations. A stone foundation is designed to last forever with proper maintenance, needing only a full restoration every 100 years or so.
Foundations are made of two walls, or “wythes,” of stone, each with a finished face facing outside and inside respectively. Between the 2 wythes is a core filled with grout. Generally, the outside of the foundation is the most important aspect to maintain, since it acts as the main barrier against water penetration and it supports the exterior brickwork. The interior walls are generally of lower quality rubble stone since they are not being battered by the elements, but restoring them can be key to solving water infiltration and moisture issues.
The most common foundation job is exterior repointing. We cut and vacuum all existing joints, re-lay any loose stones, and replace damaged stones, as required. We give the entire wall a deep pointing to completely fill the voids, and we will then apply a final pointing with the original finish.
