Replacement and repair of natural stone leads to intensive discussions among people involved in restoration. Preservation of the authenticity and compatibility are, besides the costs of replacement, some of the recurrent themes. After intervention the question can be raised whether the results are satisfactory or not. Those results can be viewed either from the perspective of the professional or the layman. This study aims to contribute to the discussion by focussing on the perception of executed conservations. In the framework of the 5th Flemish-Dutch day on natural stone, an illustrated questionnaire was used to investigate the differences and similarities in the perception of the situations shown, between groups of specialists and non-specialists from both Flanders and The Netherlands. The outcome of this study can be used to come to criteria on conservation of white (sandy) limestone.
