I have been building and repairing stone buildings for more than 20 years; firstly by simply repairing my own homes and in the last 10 years, as a one-man-band stone mason. Quite simply it is work that I thoroughly enjoy! I am happy to work in any situation involving stone, whether it be a garden wall or an entire building. I am completely at home when the work is "new" but my favourite work is when repairing or extending an existing, older structure, or when "matching" new work to old.
I prefer to use traditional lime mortar for all stone work, as it is the most suitable binding material but will use cement if you prefer. I am convinced that the correct lime mortar always enhances the appearance of stone work. I am always willing to come and discuss your "stonework" situation and offer whatever help and advice I can. To discuss "new build", restoration or repointing please contact me and I will be happy to meet you (preferably on site) and talk through cost, time and available materials.
Hopefully the pictures....all taken within 20 miles of my home at Hellandbridge...of recent work included in my portfolio will tell you something of the way I work and how I may be able to help you!
