What we do

Any design that can be produced in wood, brick or block can also be achieved in stone. In fact, this expressive building material can easily add style and value to your property while being low maintenance.

We cover residential and commercial projects, from home renovations to new developments. Whether working from plans or drafting designs for you, communication is key to understanding what you are trying to achieve. 

We can source the style and colour of stone you desire and are experienced working with stones such as schist, basalt, limestone, paradise stone, kaimai, sandstone and brick. 

Here are just some of the features we can build:

  • Water features
  • Walls
  • Entrances, paving & steps 
  • Pillars
  • Fireplaces
  • Letterboxes
  • Exterior cladding
  • Other projects 


    We are dedicated to ensuring the quality and durability of our work:

    • The foundations are the most important part of any wall. A stone wall
      must be supported by a sturdy footing - the correct amount of steel and
      appropriate concrete to provide optimum strength and support the weight
      of the stone.
    • Waterproofing is another important process. Before cladding any stone on
      your house, an air cavity must be formed by the builder prior to the
      stonemason commencing work. This will keep a constant air flow
      behind the stone to prevent dampness or leaky home.
