External Stonework

The exterior of a building is an important statement and will not only be the first impression for most who see it, but also an enduring one, influencing how it will be perceived for years to come. The skilled selection, workmanship and fixing of the stone are all paramount in delivering the quality of finish that will help ensure that the first impression is the best it can be. It is therefore invaluable to have on board an experienced stone contractor who you can trust.

APS Masonry has experience in supplying a wide variety of external stonework including ashlar blocks and facings, columns and pilasters, window and door surrounds and architectural details such as cornices, labels, finials and bands. We also provide stone for hard landscaping such as paving, steps, fountains, planters and staddle stones.

We strongly recommend that an appropriate lime mortar is used with all our limestone building products to protect the masonry and allow for movement and thermal expansion. We do not accept liability for any problems that result from not using the correct mortar. Please see our guide “Working with Limestone – Good Building Practice” for further information.
