This limestone retaining wall looked horrible! Years of exposure to the humid air and airborne spores of algae, fungi and mold led to this entire wall looking like the right side. Most of us don’t realize just how bad the situation has gotten until we clean away the debris. We get used to the look and in some ways it blends in with the surrounding landscaping.
Some neighborhood associations have restrictions that require homeowners to maintain the “clean” look of the stone.
Pressure washing is not a good solution to this problem. The high pressure can remove small surface amounts of stone or cause the stones to chip, flake or crack. The water can also damage the mortar that holds the wall together or penetrate between the stones and wash out some of the soil that the wall is meant to retain.
Well trained technicians with the proper chemical mix can quickly transform the look of the wall and WOW your friends and neighbors! Improper use of chemicals can damage or kill off the beautiful landscaping that the wall helps show off.
Beautiful limestone will not only make your home a prizewinner in the neighborhood, but it can also help you sell your house quicker.
