Building with Stone

Building with Stone

With excellent thermal mass, timeless beauty and fire resistance , well constructed stonework by an experienced and qualified stonemason will provide an excellent return on the initial investment for decades to come. What is more sustainable than a house that can be handed down through generations.

There are many things to consider when first thinking of using stone in your building, such as how much to use, in which locations, granite, sandtone, limestone or marble? Which type of chosen stone local or inter-state?  What types of surface finish to the stone? Finishing details around windows and doors, flashing for waterprofing.We can help with all these decisions at the planning stage and during construction which will save time and money in the long run.

Stone can also add so much to existing properties: add a stone fireplace, a feature wall, an impressive entrance.

Create interest in your grounds by featuring stone in walls, edges, steps, pool and pond surrounds.

Add a carving you have designed yourself for us to bring to reality.
