In the traditional sense it can be summed up in one word - bricklayer. Stonemasons do much more than just bricklaying, though.
Here is a list of the services that Stonemasons offer.
In our 21st-century context, you don’t need a wood fire to keep your house warm. That doesn’t mean you can’t have a beautiful stone fireplace!
Some homes, especially older houses, have stone fireplaces in the lounge and dining room areas. If these haven’t been properly maintained, or you bought yourself a fixer-upper home, then you may require the services of a stonemason to get that fireplace into tip-top shape again.
Alternatively, you might want to add a traditional spin to a modern home by adding a stone fireplace into one of the living spaces.
Masons can repair existing fireplaces, add them to a living space, or apply cladding to give your fireplace a new look.
This can be done on a wide variety of surfaces. So what is stone cladding exactly, you may ask? It’s just as the name suggests - cladding is applied to walls, to give it a rock-like finish. Any surface that is rendered with plaster or other media, is suitable to get a stone-clad look.
The cladding panels are 20-30mm stone sheets that are “glued” onto existing surfaces to give a stone wall finish. This is especially popular with more modern homes and adds a dimension of sophistication to your home - new or old.
Nothing quite says “upper class” than a beautifully built stone wall. Stonemasons through the ages have been building stone walls - mostly to deter intruders. In the 21st-century, however, we add stone walls to existing homes to give them an old-world charm.
A well-designed and built stone wall gives an air of quality and will change the look of your home entirely.
Some stonemasons will offer pre-built piers that can be used for a variety of purposes. Piers are often used in gateways, archways, as posts for walls or fences, or anything else that you can imagine.
Pre-built piers save time as they don’t need to be built on-site, and can be ordered according to your specifications before you embark on your project.
Here you can let your imagination go wild.
These structures are built by stonemasons to whatever specification you desire. They can be used as flower beds or other small gardens, barbecues or fire pits, garden walls, stairs, or fountains.
Stonemasons are skilled in the design, cutting, carving, polishing, and shaping of a variety of natural stone materials.
Working with a qualified stonemason ensures that you are enlisting the services of a skilled craftsman who is familiar with a variety of stone materials.They are also knowledgeable about the various stone compositions and are frequently accredited with various manufacturers.
A stonemason will have all of the essential tools to ensure a long-lasting, high-quality finish.
This depends on the project that you have in mind.
Some jobs, like building a wall around your property, will cost a lot more than quicker cladding projects. When you book a stonemason through YourPro, they’ll come and assess your needs and give you an estimate.
The bigger the job, the more materials and labour you’d require. Depending on what you require, jobs can cost anywhere from €200 to €2,900.
Of course, they will.
If a stone structure has been damaged by floods or other weather phenomena, has deteriorated with age, or got damaged by other means, YourPro masons will be able to assist you in repairing the existing stone structures.
Yes, we will. YourPro masons are ready to work if you want something to be demolished entirely and rebuilt from scratch.
They’ll demolish the existing structure, clean the rubble and get it taken away. Once everything is demolished and cleaned, they’ll start with the foundational work for your project, and work until completion.
This does come with a caveat though. If you want an entire house to be rebuilt, stonemasons will only do a portion of the job. Luckily you’ll be dealing with tradespeople who will tell you exactly what the job entails so that you’re not caught with unexpected surprises - or costs.
When hiring stonemasons—or any other type of artisan and contractor—one of the most crucial pieces of advice we can give you is to never be hesitant to ask questions.
Your contractor should be able to answer all of your inquiries without making you feel as if you're interrogating them excessively. You must feel good about your decision!
We propose asking the following questions:
This not only protects the tradesperson, but it also protects you, your house, and possessions in the event of an accident.
If your job calls for a special material, check with your tradesperson to see if they've dealt with it before. To ensure that you achieve high-quality work, they’ll need prior knowledge with real stone or other materials.
Home construction is usually a major headache that people do not consider.
The services at YourPro take pride in being pristine and considerate during the duration of your job.
We all want our home improvement projects to get completed as fast as possible. Make sure your stone mason gives you a fair estimate of how long the project will take.
