The works we carry out are very varied but all involve the repair and conservation of stone. We look at each project holistically to decide the best methodology.
We work closely with conservation officers, architects, surveyors, building contractors and home owners to achieve the best result in a safe working environment.
The majority of works we carry out are on listed and historic properties and structures. We have an in depth understanding and consideration when working on these types of projects.
No two projects are the same and much thought goes in to how to achieve the best result.
