Reviews of Stoneworkers & Stonemasons in Southwark, London
27 July 2009
Most of the patio has been laid but couldn't be finished as scaffolding around building hadn't been removed. Some of the soil needs to be dug away and some steps created but there is only about 12 square metres left to lay. All materials supplied and are already on site.
Mariusz, his wife and son worked really hard to compelete my patio work over a couple of weekends. The three of them were extremely good and doing the groundwork, leveling the soil, and removing a large amount of soil/rubbish from the site. They also went and got more materials when mine ran out.
if I had any criticisms it would be that their pointing between the slabs perhaps wasn't quite as skilled as other workmen I have had, and they didn't know how to adjust a drain-cover badly fitted by a previous builder, so simply patioed around it - although to be fair, I had forgotten to mention that this would need doing when they originally came round to give me a quote.
Their time-keeping was a little lax (they usually arrived about an hour late each day, though they did text at short notice to let me know) and on one occassion they said they would be gone for one hour for lunch but actually went for three hours. (When they got back they said that was because they were waiting for the cement to go off - but that's not what they said when they left). Having said all that, they did always turn up eventually and when they were there, they did work extremely hard. The work was carried out to a satisfactory standard.
some of the cement on front steps outside house has chipped off, so needs repairing as rain is coming through into cellar/
Peter was extremely efficient, and spent a long time advising us on the type of steps we should have, sending us images etc.. We are very happy with the restult, and would definitely recommend him to others
Completely replace existing crazy paving with Natural Sandstone Paving. Existing crazy paving is very uneven and the site has sunk by around two brick heights in some areas areas so will need to be built up and levelled. Also, two doors lead out onto the area and steps will need to be created. Both doors are 1500 mm wide and around 300mm above ground level. The overall area is 12 metres wide and on average 2.5 metres deep. Two additional areas will need repaving. One area is 3 metres by 9 and the other is 2.5 metres by 4, these are the side returns alongside the house.
2mm chip from Black Granite worktop - requiring repair. Thanks
Would like to add some new stones to the front of my garden - A quote would be good to begin with.

We have some York stone which we would like laid as a hearth. There is not one piece that is big enough so two or three pieces would have to be cut and laid together.
We have a client in SE1 who requires 2 slate counter tops re-polished - is this something you can help with, if so what are the costs involved?
