McGiffen Masonry

My name is Paul and I've been a stonemason now for over 20 years, working on some of the most prestigious buildings in the North of England. Including Liverpool Cathedral and Manchester Cathedral. I specialise in the conservation and restoration of listed buildings. From replacing elements of carved stone to repointing in lime mortars. Since starting McGiffen Masonry Ltd in 2014 with my brother Mark (who holds the same level of experience) we've also worked on a lot of domestic properties.
