Find a tradesman for stonework restoration/ repair

Restoring or repairing stonework can be an extremely specialist task depending on the situation, with common jobs ranging from stone walls to listed buildings.

What do you need to know about finding a tradesman for stonework restoration or repair?

Over time stonework can fall into a state of disrepair. This can be minor for domestic stonework, while for older structures the damage could be much more severe. When it comes to tradesmen working on stonework, there is a surprisingly competitive specialist market. There is an advantage here for a customer willing to collect, compare and barter quotes. These companies will also have their own tradesmen on hand, so you can avoid the stress of searching for multiple hires.

A potential hire will want to assess your property’s stonework before offering a quote; avoid any tradesmen that give you an off the cuff estimate over the phone, as this will be far from approximate. You may also want to have an architect or structural engineer inspect the property if the stonework is related to its structure: making stonework look good as new won’t be much good if the building falls down.

Stonework projects are often related to conservation, which will involve wanting to keep as much of the original in place as possible. This can require sourcing local materials such as quarried stone or even the use of older building methods and materials like lime mortar, which will usually require you to hire a specialist. If the property in question is a listed building, you will need ‘listed building consent’ to restore it.

It is important to make sure that your final hire has adequate qualifications and experience for the job. A stonemason may have completed an apprenticeship or an equivalent qualification, and may be part of a national tradesmans’ organisation such as the Federation of Master Builders. This is a good sign, as such groups have extremely high entry standards. Your potential hires should also be able to provide any reviews from previous customers, as well as information on their insurance coverage. Make sure you get this in writing, in addition to a good warranty for their work.

Remember to collect several quotes before making your final decision. Giving an ‘average’ price can be difficult, as costs can range widely depending on your location in the UK and the materials or specialists necessary for the job.
