Testimonials

We have a house in Myrtle Bank which is a typical 70 year old freestone bungalow with freestone verandah wall and pillars, all of which were showing signs of wear and tear with some major deterioration due to salt damp and fretting stone.

The Stoneideas team began with a most amazing cleaning job of the ageing stone, removing years of accumulated dirt and mould. As work progressed, safety measures were always put in place to prevent accidents while work was unattended. They were meticulously careful with the choice and placement of replacement stones and took great care in choosing a matching colour for the mortar. The re-pointing work was excellent and the final touch with the black line was a work of art – a very steady hand was required and achieved with great skill and patience.

All in all, we are extremely happy with the look of our renovated stonework and the work completed by Stoneideas. Our recommendation comes without hesitation and we wish them all the best.

Stoneideas transformed the stonework on three sides of my house in a little over a week. They showed they have the skills to repair and restore stonework authentically. They displayed attention to detail and were a well organised team. They exceeded my expectations.

My wife and I are delighted with the professionalism of Stoneideas, both in their workmanship and customer liaison.

They recently helped to transform our return-verandah villa from a somewhat sad and neglected looking building to a stunning home. Their work returned it to its former glory. They even sourced an economical and professional painter to paint the quoins to match the beautiful stonework, which had to have years of paint build-up removed.

On site, the team were quiet, polite and considerate of our family. No rubbish, loud music or cigarette butts with these guys!

We were extremely impressed with the professional team. Apart from their master craftsmanship, they were on time each day, finished the work on schedule and cleaned up the property afterwards. Sam was very easy to communicate with and also provided advice on the treatments required on the painted brickwork to allow the
walls to breathe.

We have already recommended StoneIdeas to our friends who have also been impressed with the result.

We called on the services of StoneIdeas after we had stripped 50 years of paint from the front stone wall and exposed a disaster of stone wash, dodgy mortar and significant cracking. At that point we were in panic mode.

We enjoyed watching the team work, and appreciated their "clean job site" approach.

Robin & I can't express how pleased we are with the transformation created from what was beginning to look like a derelict house to perhaps the best looking house in the street.
