Stonemasons Scottish Borders
Let’s talk with a consultant
Scottish Borders Stonemasons
Edinburgh Stonemasons Ltd We’re asked to carry out chimney repairs & gable works to Blythbank House in the Scottish Borders
Both chimneys were coated in cement pointing & render that traps moisture which though the action of frost and the concentration of salts accelerates the decay of the stone. We sourced local Swinton stone to match existing building in colour and detail, Our highly skilled and experienced stonemasons in traditional stone restoration & conservation cut new stone and dress the stone to the required size and shape requested in Scottish Borders.
Scottish Borders Stonemasons specialise in conservation and restoration of stone buildings and structures. We use traditional techniques and materials which incorporate today’s best practices.

What We Do
We work with both private and commercial clients on a variety of different projects of any size, either large or small throughout borders Find out more information – who we do it for
Most of the stone buildings in Scottish border are built of relatively thick stone walls.
Repairing traditional buildings with modern or non-traditional materials will accelerate stone decay, this is why you need a stonemasons who has good track record
Many buildings in the borders area have been pointed in very hard cement over years which can accelerate the decay of the masonry. Our team are fully qualified stonemasons, who have extensive knowledge and understand the best materials to use. We ensure that we match the original material and style of pointing.
