Replacing Keyst

Hi, Let me thank anyone in advance for giving me some tips.

I've got an old rowhome in Philadelphia, PA. The windows in the front of the house are arched, and I need to replace the stones that form the curve. The link attached will help illustrate what I need to do. Does anyone know how I would go about doing this?

Welcome Eric, to the best DIY'r site on the web.

I couldn't open your link you might want to repost.

Stone masonary is a very specialized field, I would love to know how and I am sure if practiced it would be a great trade to learn, but do you really want to pratice the art of stone masonary on the front of your dwelling.


When its all said and done there is usually more said than done
