    Crowsnest Re-pointing

    Crowsnest Before 2015  Crowsnest After 2015

    Here are the 'before' and 'after' photos of a small section of the sandstone wall I am rebuilding with the mortar I have bought from you over the last three years!  This was the worst section and took me ages, it's not perfect but I am self-taught - the tips on your website were very helpful though.
