Jimmy and his team did an excellent job of repairs to a sandstone porch and areas around the windows and balcony on a bay front. This involved replacement of some substantial stones as well as refacing others. Very friendly and professional and kept us well informed. Would definitely use JMS Stonemason again and would recommend.

Fix split copping stones to 26m length of dividing garden wall including pining two halves together and re-bedding on wall, plus re-building some particularly bad sections of the wall.
Work carried out quickly and very professionally with minimal disruption to garden itself. Garden shared by a number of different tenement flat owners and all have been very happy with the work and also the way in which it was carried out.
Great job, thoroughly recommend them.

An excellent job of repoining a garden wall usig lime mortar - he was happy to use the mortar we had ordered to get the look we wanted. He came on several days to bring the wall up to a high standard that now sets off everything round it.

Jimmy and his team were excellent. James worked constantly cleaning off mortar from bricks to allow them to be used again to rebuild our dividing garden wall. They worked whenever the weather allowed over winter and were understanding of delays brought about by the requirement to clear massive tree roots that had grown around the old foundation.

Jimmy is very friendly and with his years of experience he is extremely knowledgeable and entirely trustworthy. I would have no hesitation in recommending JMS.

They kept me informed about what they were doing and when they would be working and were very reliable and hard-working. I am very happy with the finished job and wouldn't hesitate to recommend JMS Stonemasons or use them again.

We were in need of a stonemason to carry out communal stonework repairs to our building (three flats). JMS Stonemason was selected following a recommendation from a neighbour and checking out reviews of his work on Edinburgh Trusted Trader website.

The masonry work (carved stone and inserts) was carried out to a high standard: started when planned and completed within the time period suggested by Mr Summers at the start. The final invoice matched the original estimate.
Mr Summers (Jimmy) was very easy to get along with and obliging.

The owners of the property are all happy with the work carried out and have agreed that in the event of needing the services of a stonemason again we would happily re-employ JMS Stonemason.

We had used JMS once before and invited them back on the strength and standard of the original work. Once again, they were prompt and courteous and did an excellent job. We also felt they offered much better value compared to other quotes we got. We would have no hesitation in recommending them again.

JMS repaired the front elevation of our main door tenement flat improving significantly its appearance. They also, repaired the brickwork of the three front walls which had been badly damaged by Ivy intrusion with attractive pointing. In addition, a roofing skew was replaced. The three member team were very discrete and industrious always leaving the work area clean and tidy at the days' send. We are delighted with the work and feel lucky to have found a local honest and diligent expert stonemason team. We highly recommend them.

JMS were appointed to replace the lintel and some very worn rybats above the front door of our terraced house. They also repointed the garden wall, which was in a state of real disrepair.

We are delighted with the work carried out. The lintel belnds in very well with the original stonework, including the detailing. The garden was is repointed to an excellent standard and makes a big difference in the appearance of our back garden.

We found JMS to be both prompt and courteous and offered excellent value for money. We would certainly use them again and have no hesitation in recommending them highly to others.

Andy, Shandon

Jimmy and his team repointed and replaced worn stones on two of our walls. In addition, I asked them to replace 3 front sills. Jimmy advised on the best materials to blend in with the colour of the stone and I am delighted with the results. The new sills have also attracted compliments from friends and neighbours. I would not hesitate to use JMS in future and have already recommended them to others. They are professional, courteous and very helpful. I also think that their prices are very reasonable considering the quality of their work.

They did an excellent job, taking a lot of care to source good materials and stones; they kept us informed on progress throughout, dealt with the scaffolders and roofers, and were exceptionally easy and pleasant to work with, keeping noise and dust to the minimum. We would strongly recommend them to our friends - and we will have them back to do our garden wall.

Fixed 2 walls for me including replacing some of the original stone. Excellent service. Good value compared to other quotes. Took the hassle away by liaising with the blacksmith and they worked well together. Overall I was very happy with this and would definitely use again.

All the boys arrived promptly each morning. They displayed an extremely high level of skill and the work done is beautiful. They were sympathetic to the style of building. In fact it is difficult to tell the difference between the original home area and the new work.

They were extremely courteous and very tidy workers. I am delighted with the work done and highly recommend them.

I was recommended to use JMS Stonemason by a friend who had used JMS Stonemason and was very pleased with their work and attention to detail.

I am also very satisfied with the quality of work carried out, my wall is now in a state of good order rather than the dilapidated state that it was in.

The young men carrying out the work were a good advert for the company - they were hard working, conscientious, tidy and polite.

I highly recommend this company.

JMS Stonemason was engaged by me for a series of small but relatively difficult jobs.

A concrete step required to be ground down to a specific measurement in order to house a customised brass bullnose. This was undertaken with great precision and the bullnose slotted exactly into place.

Other tasks involved deconstructing an old Victorian midden wall where plant roots had disrupted the structure and rebuilding it. Repointing of an old garden wall was undertaken as well as repointing the side of the garage where water ingress was apparent.

All of these tasks were completed to the highest standard and the results are excellent. The stonemason and apprentice paid great attention to the detail of the work and kept the locus neat and tidy.

They were well mannered and courteous at all times. They obviously take great pride in what they do and as a result i have had a first class job done.

Jimmy and his team have carried out a number of projects for us over several years - from picking and pointing walls to rebuilding an entire chimney stack. We have nothing but praise for his manner, professional approach, quality of workmanship, attention to detail and indeed every aspect of providing his services. He was particularly helpful in sourcing matching stone to suit our property. I have appreciated the effort he has gone to when replacing pointing to ensure that it is as neat and trim as possible. This is in marked contrast to the efforts of others to be seen around Edinburgh! We have no hesitation in recommending him and have done so to many friends and neighbours.

Jimmy Summers has done excellent work on our house, replacing front path and steps using new natural sandstone and also replacing a window mullion and sill in concrete. In both cases the products used had to be cut and finished to exacting standards, and the work was carried out in an exemplary way. We are very happy with the end result, and with the efficiency and courtesy of the masons, and would recommend this firm without hesitation.

I would most definitely recommend JMS stonemasons.

I have used JMS a couple of times for different projects and always been very happy with the work carried out and the service.
The project involved; removing a section of supporting wall, installing a lintel, steel column, strapping and general repair of the surrounding brickwork. Additionally I needed to open an old fireplace which required "squaring off" and lined with mortar/cement.
Jimmy and his team are very knowledgable, efficient and friendly to work with. I would happily use and recommend JMS for any future projects.

He is just what you want from a local tradesman.
