Typical Materials Used by Stonemasons


Visitors: 346

A specialist stonemasonry company pride themselves on every aspect of their stonemasonry and take the time and intricate detail to supply works that are built with skill and precision. The basis of any stonemasons creation is the materials they use and their precise, handcrafted work can only be achieved with the best materials. Whether you’re looking for a breathtaking fireplace to be the focal point of your front room or a bespoke ornament to top off your garden design, the great materials typically used here include the following:

Cotswold Limestone

Quarried in the Cotswolds, this unique stone is often described as a ‘honey coloured yellow’ and is popular for many different uses, although it can provide a particularly stunning fireplace, floor or doorway when handcrafted and finished by this specialist’s experienced stonemasons.

Ancaster Limestone

With a slightly less distinctive colour than Cotswold Limestone, Ancaster can vary from creamy white/beige to greys and is best and most often used to complement a modern building for facing or flooring.

Bath Limestone

This material has been used throughout Southern England and it’s easy to see why, as it is perfectly suited to all building and carving work whether it is for inside your property or the exterior.

Great Tew Ironstone

A special material that this specialist is proud to be using, Great Tew Ironstone dates back several hundred years and is unique to Britain. This offers unlimited opportunity and is without comparison.

Portland Limestone

Buckingham Palace? St. Paul’s Cathedral? There’s many more that could be named, as Portland Limestone is last on the list but definitely not least. You will have come into contact with this strong stone time and time again.

The experienced stonemasonry company will use their knowledge on all things limestone to advise you on which material is best suited to what you’re looking for, if you are indeed still a little unsure. The specialist will also make the process easy as they are always happy to talk on the phone, have an online enquiry form on their website and provide a range of existing designs to choose or gain inspiration from.

Whatever choice is best, all of the materials will speak for themselves and when crafted with the expertise that has been passed down throughout the company’s family of stonemasons , they will provide you with a structural or aesthetic work of art that will set it apart from the everyday, conventional materials that are now commonplace.
