At Stratum Masonry we have highly skilled craftsmen who carefully work dimension blocks of sandstone from the quarry into a masonry item that has been selected for replacement.
During this process, templates are taken of the item marked and transcribed onto a new masonry block. As the stone is hewed, the stone mason will use traditional hand tools and techniques to replicate the architectural detail on the original stone.
We have good working relationships with our quarry suppliers which enables Stratum to provide natural stone supply products that are finished traditionally to match the existing sandstone.
This means our stone supply is ideal for all types of house building, garden walling, retaining walls, internal/external cladding and stone facing.
If you have very specific requirements let us know, because we can source local and imported natural stone products on your behalf.

Stratum Stone Masonry are Glasgow's Lime Repointing and Stone Restoration company.
We are a highly professional conservation specialists company and have an affection and respect for the design and craftsmanship present in period properties.
Our starting point is to understand the individual character of the building before starting work and we are particularly skilled in the integration of modern and traditional technologies in period properties.

At Stratum Masonry we specialise in stone replacement and indenting whereby a stone analysis is typically carried out, which identifies the natural sandstone(s) that are compatible, aiming to achieve the best possible match in terms of aesthetics and performance to the current historic fabric.
Throughout this process, traditional methods and techniques are used to compliment the new masonry in order to recreate what remains of the building.
