WHAT WE DOWhen you’re as passionate about your art as we are, having control of each stage, from raw material to beautifully finished and installed masonry, is all part of the creative process.
That’s why we have a team of masons and a fully equipped workshop where we manufacture stone products. And more specialist skilled people who do their stuff on site. Join us on our stonework journey, whether that’s from A right through to Z, or just one of the processes along the way.
Whatever the natural stone product you are looking for, we work with quarries from across the UK to source the best block for the job. Of course, we assess the material for quality and suitability, before approving it for the project.
STONE MASONRY FIXING
Fixer masons work on site installing stone produced by the banker masons to make good or restore a building or structure or fixing for new buildings. Our fixer masons are experienced in the repair of historic buildings and structures and are fluent in traditional repair techniques. We are also able to fix masonry on new, high specification buildings.
Our wallers are specialists in walling; they undertake no other work. They mostly specialise in either dry stone walling and random rubble walling or in coursed and ashlar work.
The vast majority of our pointing work is specialist pointing of listed/historic buildings and so our pointers predominantly use traditional lime mortars in their work.
STONE RESTORATION & REPAIR
Our restoration and repair services extend to include careful stone cleaning, stone replacement or consolidation and sympathetic restoration using specialist mortars.
SPECIALIST STONE CLEANING
Not all cleaning methods are appropriate for all stone types and extreme care needs to be exercised when deciding which system to adopt. Our specialist knowledge is again vital in this decision making process and carrying this through to a completed project.
Our masons work on both new fixing schemes and on historic buildings, parks and gardens.
BRICKWORK & CIVILS
Through the nature of the schemes we work on and the intrinsic links with these areas we have both bricklayers and groundworkers in house. This enables us to offer a total solution where both stone masonry and brick work or stone masonry and civils work are involved.
MASONRY SURVEYING & CONSULTANCY
A growing area of our business, we provide specialist stone surveys to assist clients who are responsible for the practical care of historic buildings and structures.
Our stone carvers differ from banker masons in both artistic flair and temperament! They work with clients from concept to completion in their designs. Whatever the carving required, from relief carving for a fireplace to monolithic statue we have unique talent available in this department.
We manufacture and supply made to order architectural masonry to meet clients requirements in a range of natural stones extracted from across the UK, including stone heads, cills, jambs, mullions, bay windows, quoins, copings and architectural mouldings.
Whilst most of the walling we produce in house is ashlar walling we can produce made to order walling to match existing to meet specific requirements. This is in a range of stones. We supply new walling stone for both dry stone projects and backed off random.
PAVING / STEPS / EDGINGS
Utilising the abundance of high quality locally quarried stones we produce flags and setts for high specification schemes across the UK. With Whitworth, Scout Moor and Fletcher Bank surrounding our factory we are ideally placed for timely supply.
FIREPLACES & HEARTHS
Hand carved stone fire surrounds become the focal point within any room. The level of detail on surrounds requires exceptional attention to detail and the highest degree of skill. Our surrounds are all bespoke and are produced to clients requirements and designs, however we can assist with design based on previous projects.
SAWN SIX SIDES & STONE SLAB
We supply sawn stone slab and sawn six sides stone to those in the industry.
Our letter cutter can provide anything from a name plaque for a house, inscriptions to a headstone or a corporate logo on a monolith.
We can manufacture virtually any coping you could require. From 2 tonne pilaster caps for a bridge to a simple once weathered for a garden wall.
