Stonemasonry

Whatever your stonemasonry requirement, you can rely on the Cambridge firm that’s been a household name since 1896. Our services include the provision of new stonework and the restoration or replacement of existing areas, typically including bay windows, steps and sills.

Naturally, this service is able to draw on the wide range of stone we hold in stock, such as Portland, Bath, York and Ancaster Hard White. We are happy to work to your specification on a supply only basis, or offer a comprehensive installation service, including site visits where necessary.

No job is too big or too small for us, so whether you require a simple stone step, or more complex stonework for a large building project, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Arches

An arch is a structure capable of spanning a space while supporting significant weight. Arches appeared as early as 2000 BC in Mesopotamian brick architecture.

Balustrades

A balustrade is a set of decorative moulded shafts (balusters) standing on a unifying footing and supporting the coping of a parapet or the handrail of a staircase.

Bay Windows

Often associated with Victorian architecture, bay windows became popular around the 1870s and are used to increase the flow of light into buildings, and provide the illusion of a larger room.

Cladding & Fascia

Cladding is a thick layer of stone fixed to a building for either aesthetic or practical purposes (e.g. weatherproofing).

Pilasters

A pilaster is a column which projects only slightly from the wall, and is designed to give the impression of a supporting element. It has a base, a shaft, and a capital.

Plinths

In architectural terms, a plinth is a base or platform upon which another structure rests, such as a column, monument or statue. A moulded plinth can also be a base for a wall or railings.

Quoins

Quoins are the cornerstones of brick walls, and can be merely decorative, or genuine structural elements. Quoins are often used to give an additional impression of strength to a building.

Steps

Stone steps have two main components: treads and risers. A tread (the part that is stepped on) normally overlaps the riser beneath it, finished with a bullnose edge.

Window Surrounds

We design and manufacture stone window surrounds in all shapes, sizes and forms. They can be made with an arched or flat top, with simple flat profiles or more detailed mouldings.

FAQs

We have worked closely with Ivett & Reed for some years now and can not fault their quality and workmanship, which is of the highest standard.
