Restoration of leaking granite steps

Georgian granite steps were letting in water through the mortar joints. A common problem exacerbated by the introduction of cementitious repairs at some stage. Granite steps were gently cleaned using low pressure high temperature steam. All mortar joints were raked out revealing gaping holes between the stones. These gaps were filled with a waterproof membrane and re-pointed in lime mortar.
