Stacked Stone Failure in Sacramento




It can happen for a number of reasons, Stacked Stones can fail.

It may be the mortar mix. Perhaps being bumped causes the problem. Sometimes it is constant vibration of the column. There is good news though, stacked stones can be repaired in Sacramento.

Let us know if you need this sort of repair work done in the Sacramento Region.


We have a lot of stacked stone accents on homes here in my area and they need repair quite frequently. I don't know if it's the mortar mix or shoddy workmanship but it's more prevalent than it should be in my opinion.

When I first saw the picture, I thought there were lobster bodies on the ground. LOL

I can see from the installation that it was done improperly.  Faux stone isn't a stick on and forget product.  Looks like they stuck it on there with Caro syrup.  Sure didn't use the right mastic.

Good morning Tom.  All those pieces looks like putting together a jig-saw puzzle to me.

That certainly looks like a big project getting the pieces fixed correctly.
