Stone Division

We use only the finest traditional materials combined with the up to date technological enhancements.

JWP are highly skilled in repairing and replacement of defective masonry. We are frequently contacted by churches and owners of other listed buildings where render has been applied with the wrong materials used in past work. Many of our renders are lime-based in different strengths and we use horse or yak hair, just as it would have been many years ago!

Stone repairs

We have a range of coloured repair mortar. Eroded stone is removed back to sound stone using a masons mallet and a toothed chisel. For Deeper areas of the repair we insert stainless steel fixings to exposed masonry to ensure the subsequent repair has a strong grip to stone.

Stone replacement

We take sizes and profiles of the stone to be replaced. Then remove the defective stone and new stone is fitted in its place. The new stone is finally pointed with lime mortar and cleand off with a sponge, leaving a nice clean finish.

Lime Pointing using well graded sand with 3.5 NHL lime.

Lime wash the perfect finish for a lime render and plaster, totally breathable in a range of colours.

Tradional flint walls built and flint walling repairs and restoration.

What are people saying about us?
  • First rate job of re pointing our Grade ll listed windmill. Worked through difficult and very cold weather conditions. Always left site clean and tidy at end of the day and kept us informed throughout the job. Paid less than the estimate as there was not as much damage in some areas and re pointing wasn't needed. Would definitely use this company again and would recommend them too.

  • James and Daren were superb to deal with from start to finish. They were extremely polite and professional at all times. They carried out various works on our 500 year old farmhouse, including brick fireplace repairs and renovations, completely stripping walls back to the flint and new lime rendering and washing, crack and hole filling. It is obvious that they take great pride and care in their work and were more than happy to make suggestions about how and what to do in order to achieve the results we wanted, including making some changes along the way. I cannot recommend them highly enough.
