Stone

Naturally occurring resource for use in construction, such as marble, sandstone or limestone.

Stone is durable, non-combustible, resistant to frost and extreme temperatures and suitable for use in interior and exterior building projects. Once quarried, stone can be cut and shaped by a stonemason for specific purposes or to create rustic or contemporary styles.

Stone pavers and tiles provide a natural, hardwearing surface for landscaping. Stone blocks and stone bricks are a versatile and long-lasting material for retaining walls. Dry stone walling is a sturdy, low-maintenance and skilled technique often seen in heritage landscapes.

Stone cladding and façades often provide a warm and natural feel to a wall. Where weight may be an issue, stone aggregates or reconstructed stone are a viable alternative to natural stone.

Stone restoration may be appropriate for older properties: architectural stone can replace period features that are beyond repair or provide a bespoke feature to suit a traditional or modern style.

Stone suppliers, quarries, stonemasons and stone restorers can all be found on this page.
