Restoring and repairing sandstone masonry on historic edifices is a specialized service we excel in. However, accessing these older structures often poses a challenge. That’s precisely why we’ve established a dedicated Rope Access Team for masonry repairs on buildings that are difficult to reach using traditional methods such as ladders, scaffolding, or lift platforms.

Our Rope Access systems are meticulously rigged to enable our skilled stonemasons to access hard-to-reach points of a building, whether it’s a church spire or a similar structure, facilitating building maintenance work. By employing this method, we can safely execute stonework repairs, cleaning, and maintenance without the need for cumbersome scaffolding and work platforms, which not only consume additional time but also incur extra costs.

At Balmore, we are committed to delivering top-notch performance to our customers by providing high-quality masonry work using innovative solutions like Rope Access, Drone Inspection, and advanced cleaning technology capable of removing algae, moss, carbon soot, and other stains from delicate stonework without harming the underlying substrate.

Our highly skilled Rope Access team can handle a variety of tasks including Stonework Repairs, Repointing, Gutter Cleaning, Gutter Repairs, Emergency Stone Removal, and Chimney Repairs. With over 35 years of experience in stone masonry services, we are based in Glasgow and cover mainland Scotland, offering stone repairs and cleaning services for all types of building stonework. Our specialized “historic building restoration” service proves invaluable for the diverse range of older buildings scattered across the country.

From repairing damaged sandstone on residential properties to removing graffiti paint from stonework without causing damage, our proficient stonemasons are fully qualified to handle the repair, cleaning, and restoration of sandstone commonly found in churches, cathedrals, historic buildings, town halls, statues, and public and private properties.

With nearly four decades of service, working on renowned A Listed Buildings and local sandstone properties, our masonry rope access team has encountered various challenges. Whether it’s emergency stone removal or sandstone cleaning, we have the expertise to tackle any project, be it one-off or scheduled contracts.
