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.

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.

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.

Very happy with the work done by Thomas and his team. The work involved some plastic repairs (lithomex) to my tenement wall to fix an area of stone that had delaminated and crumbled away. It was quite an awkward spot to get to as the access scaffold had to be built on another flat roof and the repair itself was high level, just below the gutter line, but they done a great job and got it sorted despite some very windy weather. I would recommend to friends and call on them again if the need arises.

Very pleased with finished work, which much improves the look of our property.
A tidy and helpful worker who cleans up as he proceeds.

Prompt, friendly and business like, Thomas checked out, assessed and estimated for repair of a dangerous broken step at the bottom of our common stairwell. Ahead of schedule and, at short notice, he resolved our problem to everyone’s satisfaction. TJF Stonemasonry is local to the Canongate and we would be more than happy to avail ourselves of their splendid services again. Highly recommended.

The front landing of our colony house was about to collapse and in need of urgent replacement. Several tradesmen looked at the situation but vey few appeared confident about being able to sort the problem. Luckily Thomas and his team were able to remove the old landing and rebuild in-line with the building and steps connecting. Work was swift and professional and the end result looks great as well as being both safe and solid.

I was made aware of T J Ferris Stonemasonry when I saw their work at Ayton Castle. I commissioned them to build a concave wall in my garden, which was completed within time and budget. Subsequently he has gone on to work on the Grade A listed walls on our estate. We would now use T J Ferris Stonemasonry as our first choice.

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.
