Natural stone has some hidden qualities, for example its structural abilities to take its own weight over and over again and because of this it was then developed into archways, columns and lots of other decorative and structural features.

When you choose to build with stone one of the most important considerations is the person who builds it, all too often high quality stone is ruined by inexperience and bad building practices, a good stone mason can turn average quality stone into a beautiful piece of building work. The origins of building with stone go back millennia and working techniques were passed on through different generations working side by side.
