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.

I have experience of T J Ferris Stonemasonry’s work both in repair and new stone build. The quality of their workmanship is excellent. They have built a new stone wall for me personally and we are very pleased with it. They have also repaired our Georgian garden wall. TJ Ferris Stonemasonry have undertaken repair work, at a competitive cost, on the Category A listed ancient monument of Coldingham Priory – treating 13th century stonework to reduce porosity and repairing Victorian weathered sandstone.

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.

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.

Thomas and his men repointed the front of our bungalow, repaired a stone widow sill and replaced some rendering. Despite the current covid situation causing a delay to the start of the work, the work was carried out efficiently and smoothly. I cannot fault the quality of the finish and the workmen were friendly and hard working. Overall we’re very happy to have chosen Thomas for the work.
