An Adelaide stone mason in the old tradition

Since the dawn of history stonemasons have been respected for their knowledge and skill working with the rawest of materials which stand the test of time.

Matt understands how to craft stone using a vast variety of techniques to ensure uncompromising quality.

Carefully matching traditional colours and styles

Matt pays a great deal of attention to matching stones from local quarries in Adelaide and the Adelaide Hills, but there’s more to stone restoration than just colour and texture.

Look closely and you will find that each traditional stone wall is unique, reflecting the differing chisels and techniques used by stonemasons over the years. Matt will match chisel styles and pointing techniques for quality results.

Repointing stonework to restore former glory

Whether restoring old stonework or just making stone walls look better, Matt will take great care to match the techniques used by stonemasons in the past.

He uses traditional, lime-based mortar and blends together with differing varieties of sands to match colours and textures. Where necessary he will chip away old pointing back to the bedding joint and then repoint the areas between the stones.

Salt damp repairs without taking shortcuts

There are many different ways to repair salt damp, so please get a clear understanding of the builder’s technique if you plan to compare prices. Make sure old salt affected stones and masonry components are completely removed.

Matt will install a heavy duty plastic dampcourse membrane and new stones that match the existing structure which are repointed to match the original stonework.
