Stone Restoration & Repair
Inventing gentle ways to clean and restore stone
John Canning & Co.'s conservators evaluate, test, and formulate custom cleaning agents for every kind of surface. The processes range from the repeated application by hand with natural sponges to a latex compound that encapsulates the debris in all the folds and decoration and, when dry, is peeled away bringing years of dirt with it.
Repairs to statues and stone are achieved using a variety of methods – carving, casting, and filling – each method requiring careful color and finish matching.
