If you are considering a stonework project then please feel free to contact us, we will be happy to discuss your project with you. Below are just a few of the stonemasonry services we are able to undertake.
We can build your fresh new wall with an array of finishes and techniques – Ashlar, coursed and uncoursed stonework, random rubble walls as well as ragwork which has become very popular within contemporary new build properties. We work with sandstone which is natural to Monmouthshire and Herefordshire as well as limestone and pennant to name a few.
Utilising age old traditional methods, we have a specialist team of tradesmen specifically undertaking restoration works. Knowledge and experience within the traditional style of stonework building techniques has lead us to successfully complete restoration works to churches and listed buildings.
We undertake landscaping projects, particularly where stone is a key feature within the project. Water features and ponds, seating areas, steps, walls, patios and paved areas are just some of our experience.
Our specialist masons can create stylish focal points within your home, office or in fact any type of living space. Bold stone feature walls, traditional stone fireplaces built or restored and traditional flagstone flooring have become common requests.
Lime Mortar Pointing
Traditional Solid walls work on the basis that moisture entering a wall is able to escape as easily as possible. Lime mortars can readily handle this transmission. Our highly skilled tradesman hold many years of knowledge and expertise in this specialist area repairing mortar joints to re-pointing whole properties.
Dry stone walling
Our masons use traditional techniques to create that authentic dry stone wall effect. From garden walls for landscapers to repairing dry stone walls on farms and country estates, we’ve got it covered.
With our network of suppliers, we are able to match, source and supply building stone to your project whether it be a new build, or an extension where the stone needs to be matched exactly.
Supplying new sandstone, limestone and pennant as well as reclaimed stone is common within our day to day practices.
