How and when do I pay for the work carried out?

Do you tidy up after you've carried out any work?
We always ensure that there is absolutely no sign of us ever having been there other than your greatly enhanced stonework. This is our promise to you.
Do you issue a guarantee for your work?
Our work is expected to last for multiples of the time the work is guaranteed by us. The reason we cut it shorter is because of the uncertainty of future weather. If we were to experience a week of minus 15 degrees nights at some point for example, this could potentially cause problems even with perfectly executed lime works.
Our policy is to issue a robust, sensible guarantee that we will be honoured no matter what. Every stonemasonry company will give you a guarantee if you ask them for one, but only a quality company with quality management and a top quality, hard earned reputation to protect will honour this.
We have never to date had to carry out remedial work under guarantee, such is the quality of our work.
