On the other hand, however, tiny cracks and dent- often got through accidents or incidences, can be easily repaired even by someone not as experienced as your everyday mason. Covering over the dents can be achieved using wood, or even concrete, depending on your know-how. Also, these dents can be covered using a thin layer of paints.

In any other case, seek professional help.
