Softer stone like the brownstone shown above (as well as Wissahickon Schist & other sedimentary rocks) can show signs of extreme deterioration which usually has something to do with a persistent water issue along with the kind of mortar that surrounds the masonry, but also because the stone was not laid correctly or is in fact inferior.
