Patch a Stone Wall

Updated:2013-12-06 16:56:46
Stone walls can lend an rustic quality to your home's interior or exterior. As durable as stone walls are, however, they can break down over time, chip and even crumble. Fortunately, repairing a stone wall isn't all that difficult. There are patching materials available in a variety of colors that allow you to mix a patching solution you can use to match your stone wall and not only repair damage but help prevent more damage from occurring.
Instructions as follows:
Firstly, determine the damage your stone wall has. This will allow you to estimate how much patch mortar you will need to purchase. It will also give you an idea of the work you have ahead of you. Mix your patch mortar with water, according to instructions on the bag. The mixture should have a putty-like consistency.
Secondly, dampen the area you will be patching with water. This helps with the adhesive properties of the patch job. You don't want to soak the area. Use a spray bottle to apply the water to the damaged area lightly.
Thirdly, dip a wooden applicator into the patch mortar. A paint-stirring stick will do for this. Scoop out a generous amount and smooth it over the cracks. Be sure to press and tap the patch mixture into any holes that need to be filled. This will add strength to the damaged area.
Fourthly, shape and texture your patch job to match the rest of the stone, smoothing it if necessary or using the wood applicator to rough up the texture. You want to get as close a match in texture and shape on your patch area as you can to the rest of the stone.
Fifthly, allow the patch mortar to dry thoroughly before deciding whether you need to add more. It takes about 24 hours for a thorough drying time.
