Bath stone repairs.


Postby potcher » Thu Aug 21, 2008 11:16 am

I want to repair a bathstone window sill, but have been told that certain mortar mixes can attack the stone. The area to be repaired is not too big and I'm wondering whether biulding up layers of Tetrion filler or similar would do the trick. Any help please.

Go to Travis Perkins and buy Bath stone Mix, which is like a cement mix for bath stone............Dont use any fillers it will only fall out
