Stone carving and dressing take high pride here at Stratum Masonry. Our team of highly skilled craftsmen take their finely honed craft skills and attention to detail to to apply care and artistic attention in working dimension blocks of sandstone from the quarry into a masterpiece of 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.
Stone carving and dressing are ancient and artistic methods used to manipulate and shape the stones, from prehistoric rock carvings, to the more modern day sculptures to burial headstones and monuments.

Scott & team have just completed work on my property, cleaning, repairing & re-pointing the stonework. They have been a pleasure to deal with from start to finish & I am very happy with the end result. The team delivered exactly what they said they would & to a very high standard. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend their services & they would be my 1st port of call if I need anything further in this area in the future. Professionals - thanks very much Scott & team!
Quite simply, this company has provided us with exemplary service from start to finish. My parent's red sandstone front steps needed to be cleaned, repointed and the top step refurbished. Scott was keen to survey and made himself available at a time which suited. From the outset it was clear that Scott was polite and professional (survey was carried out exactly on time), with a love of his craft. The job was carefully described to me, including making me aware of the limitations of what could be achieved with the cleaning. The job was then carried out at a time that suited our availability and in the timescale promised. The top step now looks like it’s brand new. They did a lovely job of maintaining the profile of the original carving and pointing the other steps. The fact the pointing had gone, like the profile of the top step, had been hidden by years of grime. Both look so much better now. From my experience, you won't be disappointed or let down if you engage this company!
Would recommend these guys to family friends or anyone. My garden wall was pointed and it was a first class job. Scott was a very knowledgeable pleasant person to deal with and I wouldn’t hesitate to use these guys again.
This company was recommended by my next door neighbour but I could see myself how well organised and skilled these guys were so had no hesitation in getting them to point my front elevation.As expected the work was done by experienced and professional men who also came on time and respected our immediate neighbours.Scott organiser everything from start to finish and was extremely tidy after the work was completed.i have since passed his number on to many neighbours in my area while I sing his praise, and they have now telephoned him for quotes.Scott came across a real gentleman who cared enough after the work was done making sure that we were happy and we certainly were.Well done Stratum missionary
We have used Scott and team on a number of projects. He is reliable, professional and above all the quality of work is always great.
