Edinburgh's award-winning stonemason has worked for me in the past and has proved once again this week to be totally reliable and conscientious producing an excellent job of re-pointing my garden wall. He even worked on in 27 degrees of heat, nothing daunted!

John repointed 90m of our boundary wall, with a small section of rebuild. He carried out an excellent job and kept a really tidy site. He was one of 3 contractors quoting for the job and his price was competitive. We would have no hesitation in recommending him.

Review Comments
Mr Sutherland did extensive work on our property during winter 2016. He replaced some of the stonework that had become seriously eroded with new stone, and also repointed and restored the less damaged stonework. While undertaking the work he noticed issues with our roof and kindly recommended a roofer he often worked with, allowing us to have the problem fixed while he was still working on the property.

I cannot recommend Mr Sutherland highly enough. When he first came to give us an estimate I was struck by how he took time to explain things and did not try and push us for the most expensive options. He was polite, friendly and courteous at all times.
He kindly gave us two estimates: one for the bare minimum to make my property safe and the second for more extensive cosmetic work to be carried out. We went with the second option.
While working on the property Mr Sutherland discovered serious problems with our roof. He photographed the area and approached me about it. It was clear from the photos that we would need to do something about this and he was very helpful, recommending a roofer he had worked with in the past. I am immensely grateful for him spotting the problem, and was struck by how he went to the trouble of photographing the damage etc
We were delighted with the finished work. I live on a main road and passers by have commented on how beautifully the stonework has been repaired. The quality of craftsmanship is apparent immediately. Mr Sutherland is clearly a master craftsman. We have had some terrible experiences with traders in Edinburgh in the past but Mr Sutherland was a pleasure to work with. I would not hesitate to recommend him - indeed I already have to numerous folk!

I was recommended John by an architect friend. On our Edinburgh tenement flat he replaced a stone sill to match the original, scraped gloss paint off the remaining stonework and made repairs to adjoining stone and replaced the mastic. He did a very good, thorough and professional job, it looks like new. I am delighted with the job he did , I would use him again and recommend him to friends.

We are delighted with John Sutherland's work. He worked over 7 weeks on a project to re-build our boundary wall and erect new gate pillar. Using mostly new stone individually dressed and shaped to fit in with the style of the original wall John has built a beautiful wall for us. He is a true craftsman who takes great pride in his workmanship which is excellent. He is a very tidy, trustworthy and conscientious worker and we would highly recommend him and/or use him again for any specialist stonemasonry work.

Review Comments
We were very happy with the wall that John Sutherland built for us. Prior to us appointing him, he came to discuss the options we had together with the cost implications. He gave us ideas that we hadn't even considered such as suggesting that we took the opportunity to widen the driveway (we were planning to re-tarmac it after the wall was built anyway).
He was punctual and always left the site tidy. His cost was in line with the estimate that he had given us.
Many of our friends and relatives have commented on the quality of the job and how it has enhanced the appearance of our house.
I would have no hesitation in recommending him to any of my friends who wanted work carried out by a stonemason.

We required our patio wall to be rebuilt due the old brick wall falling apart. John came, surveyed the work, told us what he suggested and gave us a quote which we accepted. The work was carried out in a very professional manner with the patio wall being replaced by a new one built with quality stone. We are very pleased with the end result. The work was done by John and his brother Sandy who were both very approachable,happy to answer questions, and update us on progress. We were told the times that they would arrive each day. All rubble and used materials were removed by them.

We would use this firm again for any future work.
