We are the only stonemason in Edinburgh to appear on the popular channel 4 show ‘Grand Designs’ where our expertise and skills were on display when we fully restored a dilapidated Edinburgh home back to its former glory. The 19th century sandstone house had been left unoccupied and neglected for a period of years, exposed to attack by the harsh unforgiving Scottish weather; the cream coloured sandstone was left badly weathered and decayed. The exterior of the building required specialist attention, Burgh Stone Masonry ended up replacing 140 hand-cut blocks and of course it goes without saying traditional lime mortars were used for all works.
Although we are highly trained in restoring listed buildings and period properties, Burgh Stonemasonry also specialise in the repair of traditional stone and lime constructed solid masonry walls. These walls are often ancient, having stood for hundreds of years and require a repair and maintenance programme to keep them in a good state of repair. Stones may become loose or cracked and we work towards replacing these with appropriate types. It is also possible to introduce a little character into new builds and extensions by using reclaimed stones when building new walls. This is both a useful and attractive aspect to any property – new or old.
If you are looking for stonemasons in Edinburgh who can fix your chimney, then Burgh Stone Masonry can help. Above the roofline the chimney stack is exposed to the full force of the weather. While some companies can offer repairs to your chimney at cheap prices, these repairs can often be compromised by using inappropriate cement based mortars which look unsightly and not in keeping with the character of the building. Burgh Stone Masonry can guarantee correct material choice and expert restoration of any chimney stack.
The stonemasonry works mentioned are just some of the services we can help you with. We also specialise in Lime pointing, Lime renders and Lithomex lime mortar repairs. As well as properties issued with a statutory notice we also carry out emergency repairs, where a building or part of a building is declared unsafe to the general public. Mobile elevated working platforms can be used at a fraction of the cost and time of a traditional scaffold system. The buildings can be surveyed and made safe, allowing owners/tenants valuable time to organise funds for an appropriate repair strategy.
