We provide a mortar analysis service to assist in specification for conservation projects. Limemortar is dissolved in acid solution to determine type and % of inclusions. Recommendations for mortar mix for repairs can then be made.

Past projects include samples from vernacular housing in Kinsale and analysis of mortar from exterior boundary wall in Monkstown county Cork.
