Testimonials

We hired Geraint to undertake a delicate Bath stone repair job as part of an extensive English Heritage external refurb. We required the job to be turned around quickly. He promptly attended site to measure up and take profiles of the decorative stone work we needed to match in and repair. Later that day I had a price which was approved. Due to his connections he managed to get the supplier to deliver and cut the stone in double quick time which was then worked quickly in his work shop. Lastly he attended the site and fitted all the stone work which slotted in perfectly and once painted you genuinely wouldn’t know the difference. All in all, top service, true professional at what he does and he will be first person I call if/when I need stone work done again in the future.
