Latest reviews

  • Clean old stone wall & repoint with lime mortar

    James is a genuinely nice fella to deal with, and very knowledgable regarding his trade.
    My son recently purchased a house that had old stone exterior which needed cleaning and repointing.
    James and his team removed all the old cement pointing , steam cleaned the stone, then replaced the pointing with lime mortar.
    James would answer any queries and offer good advice.
    The weather was against them almost everyday, but they finished the job as promised in time for new windows to be installed.
    We would use James and his team again and highly recommend Llandaff Stonemasons.

  • Repoint and remove paint, do good on 3 storey house

    Waited 4 months. Twice told would have to wait another 6-8weeks depending on work booked in already. Don’t commit if you cannot honour. Surely people you work with need a schedule? Third time didn’t reply to my message.

    Thanks wasted my time. Don’t book and wait.

  • Re-pointing gable end wall

    I would like to thank James and his hard working team for the brilliant job they have done. James explained what he thought was required before the job started, he explained why he thought air bricks should be fitted and why he suggested fitting weep vents. The team cleaned up at the end of each day and did a final thorough clean at the finish, I'm so pleased I chose James to re-point my wall.
