The loss of traditional skills is perhaps the most significant issue for the future management of the stone buildings. With increasing migration of workers to the towns, traditional crafts and skills are being lost from communities. WM Masonry promotes stone masonry and enables stone to be as relevant today as it was 100s of years ago to communities across the UK. A revival in such skills, and the ability to make a living from using them is often born out the natural practical advantages that stone can bring to a modern building project.
Restoration is can often be considered to be something that is a continual process that older buildings need frequently, this is often a misplaced assumption because a well planned restoration will ensure the life of a stone building for many years.
