Matt did a very good job with the repair to our stone fireplace. He recommended what we needed and clearly takes pride in his work. It now looks as good as new!

I am a City and Guilds qualified stonemason with 20 years experience in the trade. I have worked for several highly-regarded companies and on the restoration of many prestigious buildings. I also have worked on many new-build developments, most recently the Cabot Circus development in Bristol.
I mainly work on private contracts, mostly restoration of stonework to domestic properties, working on many period buildings in Clifton (Bristol) and the Bath area. I have also undertaken many landscape gardening projects, often working with a landscape designer as well as designing and building my own projects. I also am available for subcontracting.
