Review Comments
We had AB Mearns come and do some stone repairs on our house.
They came promptly and started the job within a week or two. We had between 2 and 4 stone masons on the site over a period of about 6 weeks and all were very polite and professional and did a great job of repairing our stone work. Andy called around regularly to check that the job was going well, and to talk through what the men were doing.

They tidied up really well at the end of each day, and took time to say hello and chat with our two small kids, which was very nice of them (and even bought our kids wee goodbye presents when they were leaving).

We are thrilled with the result, and would definitely recommend them without hesitation.

A very efficient company whose representative was rapid in the presentation of the estimate for rewiring my gate ans was accurate in what was needed to repair it.

Early start on both days and the workman was informative and ready to carry out a slight modification.

There was a follow up afterwards to ask about my satisfaction with the job.

A.B Mearns firm was recommended to me as being reliable and efficient, they had done work in my house before and I cannot thank them enough. The men have always been extremely reliable, no time wasting, friendly and cheerful. Being on my own I appreciate the extra effort and thoughtfulness that went in to making me comfortable. A big thank you to all involved.

Review Comments
A.B. Mearns Ltd. undertook a common repair project for and on behalf of my clients with the works acquired under competitive tender. Works carried out included stone replacements, repairs and re-pointing - all of which were executed to a very high standard. Site staff were knowledgeable and professional throughout and A.B. Mearns ensured the delivery of the works within the agreed budget with constant liaison and collaboration. I would have no hesitation in recommending A.B. Mearns and am likely to include them on future tender lists.

I live in a listed area of Edinburgh so it was important that the work needing done was compliant. AB Mearns did all the stonework to an excellent finish and standard using the old techniques such as lime to blend with the original stonework. The employed a blacksmith to replace and match the existing ironwork.
The finished result has been complemented on by all passers by and neighbours.
