Client Testimonials

Historical wall demolition and rebuilding, lime and masonry work, removal of trees damaging foundations

"On behalf of St. Thomas’ Church PCC I would like to thank you for the work carried out to the Churchyard wall. It is something that has caused us concerned for some considerable time and it is a relief to know that the work has been completed before any damage or injury has occurred.

I would also ask that you pass on our thanks to the workmen involved in this operation. There were so professional in there approach and did a really amazing job. We were very impressed at there knowledge and expertise in performing what at time looked to be extremely dangerous work.

Thank you again for all your help in this matter. "

"Stone Technical Services have undertaken a number of projects for Calderdale MBC on grade 1 and 2 listed buildings. Each one has been completed with extreme care and fastidious attention to detail. Their in-house masons and carvers are very adept at all forms of masonry repair including indents, new blocks and replacement carved details.

They are fully conversant with the use of lime mortar for re-pointing & re-bedding and have in house lead workers who are highly skilled. All their operatives are knowledgeable and have fully understood the end goals for each of the projects they have undertaken for CMBC. Where unforeseen issues occur they are always ready to put forward solutions and recommendations for discussion to ensure a cost effective solution for both building and client.

One project they undertook for CMBC was the refurbishment of Wainhouse Tower, a 275 ft stone & brick folly. This work included full re-pointing, replacement stonework, taking down & rebuilding the top corona section, carving replacement stone details and replacement of ferrous metal cramps and fixings. All this work was carried out using a mixture of rope access, cradle access, and fixed scaffolding.

Their attitude to health and safety is excellent and without compromise; their customer service is excellent

I would not hesitate to use Stone Technical Services on other projects. Their “can do” attitude and a willingness to work with clients to achieve the best end result is very refreshing.

I trust that the above is suitable however if you need any further information please do not hesitate to contact me."

"Thank you for the opportunity of offering my experience of Stone Technical Services.

I have worked with the firm for twenty years and with Dave Stone for six of them

The work you describe is their speciality. At Lumley Castle -Grade 1 - they have been our contractors for the twenty year stone restoration programme and also been employed at restoring stonework at various historic churches. In short this is exactly the exercise at which they excel. The firm's record is first rate. The staff are diligent honest and skilled. Their administration and site supervision are thorough. I have no hesitation in recommending the firm for your project.

Ray Connell
Project Architect

"Just a quick thank you for the recent works carried out. As ever, the guys have carried out the work to the highest of standards we come to expect from the company. Once again, the project was on time and to budget for which I'm most grateful. The system is far slicker to attach to than the one removed, and of course feels far safer without constant snagging. Look forward to seeing the guys at the next lightning conductor test."

"We are writing to you as members of Barnard Castle Methodist Church, to express our thanks for the work you carried out on the Church. Since starting our project back in October 2012 your staff have experienced all aspects that the British weather had to produce. We appreciate the consideration given at times when funerals and services were being held during working hours. The level of workmanship and professionalism has been outstanding throughout the project and we are pleased to now be in a position that our building is sound and watertight.
Would you please pass on to your staff our thanks for their efforts."

"Stone Technical Services undertook two substantial renovation projects at White Lion Court and Merchant Taylor Hall in the City of London. I was extremely impressed with both the quality of the workmanship and the professionalism shown throughout the company. The projects were diverse and at times demanding, especially in terms of access. They completed the works to specification, on schedule and we are very happy with the result. I would happily recommend them for future projects."

Additionally, they were extremely patient in helping us to work with the local press from which several pieces have come. We have been very grateful for their support."

Hope all is well.

Conservation Manager

"The inspection and survey carried out by Stone Technical Services on the main dome of the London Oratory were essential in determining the strategy of intervention for the conservation of the building. The detailed report was delivered very efficiently.
The repair works were carried out carefully and professionally with confidence by a punctual and friendly site crew.
Stone provided a flexible and all rounded service for our architectural conservation works."

"Stone Technical Services undertook an extensive condition survey of the exterior of the Grade 2 listed Newcastle City Pool and an adjoining Victorian school building with stone walls and slated roofs, the latter having been disused over a period of forty years or so and consequently in an extreme state of disrepair. The survey was complex and covered all aspects of the external fabric and drainage. The work was carried out efficiently and the resulting report was thorough and clearly presented, generally in the format of digital photographs with descriptions of the condition and recommendations for remedial works."

"We have been working with Stone Technical Services for many years now and always know that what ever we work need will be done with confidence, competence, and professionalism. Working on anything at Lindisfarne is a challenge so to do what they do to such standards is all the more commendable, especially given the numbers of visitors to be aware of and (particularly on the last visit) the high winds that batter Holy Island from time to time. I look forward to working with Stone again in the future."

"In my experience over a number of years using Stone Technical Services for various types of high level surveys I have found them both very responsive and professional. The quality of the reports received has been excellent."

Derek Irwin

"Stone Technical Services have been an approved contractor for York Museums Trust for some years now and we engage them to carry out repairs and maintenance of our Buildings in the centre of York. These are iconic landmarks of national significance and all are listed therefore conservation and preservation are of utmost importance combined with quality of workmanship and a reasonable cost. We have been completely satisfied with both the workmanship, level of service and and the competence of their staff and would recommend them unreservedly "

Des Mahon

"I have found that Stone technical Services have a good sound knowledge of building conservation skills, very helpful in working closely with the client’s needs and requirements, work with in budgets & with in time scales.

I can also mention that I have commissioned this company to do work on a number of the National Trust building over the last 10 years which includes Malham Tarn House, Ormesby Hall."
