Several biological growths are benign and may sit on a stone surface without causing damage, or may also act as a protective barrier to wind and rain. Nonetheless, some growths can damage underlying stone and mortar.
Woody plants will open up joints and may dislodge stones leading to structural problems. Grasses can clog gutters and down-pipes, and blocked drainage may increase moisture levels in masonry, encouraging the establishment of algae or mosses that might not otherwise grow there.

Don’t expect a good job without employing good tradespeople –no matter how good the specification is!

Time to check your #masonry
Biological growths like algae, fungi, lichens, mosses and higher plants.
Biological growth on building exteriors is inevitable, but not always problematic regarding aesthetics or preservation. As a matter of fact, much biological colonisation is harmless and goes undetected, and the presence of biological growth is not necessarily responsible for damage, which may be the result of other problems affecting a structure.

Stay tuned the next weeks as we'll explore how to monitored and managed #biologicalgrowths from masonry buildings and structures.
