Local Stonemasons works in Perthshire
The stonework at Gleneagles Hotel was built with local sandstone. There were many stones that were cracked, Edinburgh Stonemasons were tasked to remove one stone for the structural engineer to find the source of the problem. We were asked to carry out 12 stone replacements and selected pointing & lithomex repairs.
We purchase our stone from local stone suppliers and have highly skilled and experienced local stonemason’s in Perthshire, who can cut and dress the stone to any size and shape desired. Our expertise lies is in both lime works & masonry works.

Stone Repairs in Pertshire
Lithomex Stone Repairs is applied to existing masonry units where the surface of the existing stone has deteriorated but is still structurally intact. Lithomex has high vapor permeability, low modulus of elasticity, excellent bond characteristics and achieves early freeze-thaw resistance. Stone repairs develop early strength but not such that it becomes stronger than the background.
What We Do
We work with both private and commercial clients in Perthshire on a variety of different projects of any size, either large or small throughout life. Find out more information – who we do it for.
Most of the stone buildings in Perthshire are built of relatively thick stone walls. Many of these walls are Ashlar dressed coursed sandstone pointed and built-in lime mortar. This traditional method of the building enables the structure to breathe.
A majority of the older buildings in Perthshire have been repaired over the years using modern materials such as cement, this has in some cases led to damaged stonework which has resulted in the need for extensive stone repairs.
Repairing traditional buildings with modern or non-traditional materials will accelerate stone decay, this is why you need stonemasons who are experts in using lime.
We can offer rope access works and also lime mortar works and stonemasonry, please send us message and we can help you with your project.
