Cracks in cast stone window sills

Recommended Posts

This 7 year old house has fairly deep cracks in several cast stone window sills. I'm guessing the cracks will progress over time. I don't know if a suitable repair is possible, or if this would require replacement. I can't find any authoritative info online.

Does anybody have any experience with this?

The repair would be the one used for cracks in historic cast stone - low-viscosity epoxy injection. That is, after the cause of the cracks is determined. I read something similar in a publication from (I think) the Cast Stone Institute.

I really like the fact that there is a trade association producing that fine manual, but it lick 'em and stick 'em stone ain't masonry. They really should have chosen a better name.
