Traditional Stonemasonry and Building Services

Delivering expert traditional stonemasonry and building services for all types and sizes of project throughout Edinburgh, South East Scotland and North East England.

It’s always a labour of love

At T J Ferris, every project is a labour of love because we are passionate about what we do. Whether it’s the painstaking restoration of a historical landmark building, a minor repair in a town house or a full refurbishment project, our dedicated team of traditional stonemasons works to the highest standard, delivering outstanding value for our clients.

Finding solutions

Working on the preservation, restoration and conservation of historic stone and traditional building projects can come with its fair share of difficulties. With many years of experience behind us, however, we always strive to find solutions which not only solve inherent challenges with integrity and respect, but do so in a cost-effective manner.

Traditional skills in a modern setting

We do not simply focus on traditional buildings, however. We also work with new and modern buildings, for example building in a bespoke stone fireplace or floor to ceiling marble to create a fabulous bathroom. From enhancing a modern design with architectural antiques to completing an extension, conservatory, garage or new build, we bring the same standard of excellence to all our work.

A bespoke service

There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to our services. We work with professional clients who have a range of expertise on hand and simply need us for our specialist lime pointing and stonemasonry skills. Others require us to manage the project from start to finish, including the sourcing of sub-contracted craftsmen with expertise in associated trades like woodwork or design, as well as authentic materials, local stone and architectural antiques.

Most of our work comes via recommendation

Customer experience is our priority and we are particularly proud of the fact that most of our work comes from existing clients or via personal recommendation. That is because we pride ourselves on the relationships that we develop with clients who trust us to carry out all types of work in a highly professional, helpful and tidy manner.

Great work carried out by a great team. Would highly recommend.

Thomas and his team replaced some stones on the exterior wall of my listed house and removed some crumbling mortar before fixing the gaps. The end result is great – it blends in with the rest of the building perfectly and they were professional throughout the process. They worked quickly and efficiently, sticking to their promised time frame and budget!

Stone walling altered and gate inserted in 6 ft high wall. Also dry stone walling repaired.

Thomas did the work brilliantly. His workmanship is precise and to be admired.

I would not use anyone else for any further work we will from time to time need doing on our cottage and walled gardens.

Tom and his team recently finished a number of stone and building repairs at my house and I cannot recommend them enough. The job was complex yet Tom and his team provided me with a comprehensive estimate and plan which was followed through keeping us in budget. The craftsmanship was first class and Tom’s team were professional, courteous and tidy throughout. I could not be more happy with the job.

T J Ferris Stonemasonry were competitively priced, friendly and approachable. They started the job quickly and the finished result looks fantastic. We will come back to them in the future.

Giles, Berwick-upon-Tweed

Extensive renovation work carried out to walled garden, including replacement coping, re-point and replacement bricks where necessary to match existing.
Very pleased with the work carried out by TJ Ferris. From the beginning, Thomas was very helpful, which made the decision process easy and the end result is excellent.
Costs were slightly above the original estimate but I believe they were honest in their approach and would not hesitate to use again.

Stone repairs, replacement of ridge tiles and pointing of chimneys and wall heads.
Excellent service. I have used TJ Ferris Stonemasonry on a number of occasions now and would not hesitate to recommend this company both for the work done and value for money. Both Thomas and Blake are excellent workmen.
