Great quality work from Rab, Davy and Mo. They kept me updated when work would start and finish. Any issues preventing them attending such as poor weather conditions was no problem. Would definitely recommend this company.

We had a replacement stone for one side of our sash window which needed to be curved to match the other side. Excellent workmanship and matching. Really impressed.

We engaged Newtown Stone Repairs for replacing sandstone / repointing a wall and are simply delighted with the quality of their work. The communication from quote, selection of sandstone and updates on progress from start to finish have been exemplary. Overall great customer service.

A great job done by Paul and the team. It was relatively straightforward, but the job was done to a high standard, on the timing promised and at a reasonable cost. We’ll come back to Newtown Stone as and when we need stoneworks done.

We had the “string course” of stone lying under the eaves of our house removed and replaced with new cut stone. Water damage over many years had badly eroded the old stone. It was a tricky job taking out the old stone and making sure the new stones fitted snugly and were shaped properly. Paul and his team were super efficient and took real pride in their work. They kept the mess to a minimum and swept up every evening. They carried the work out quickly and made sure the scaffolding was up for the minimum amount of time. The finished result looks great and we are happy we have got this tricky job completed by such a professional team of people.

In December 2022 and January 2023 Newtown Stone Repairs Ltd carried out stone replacement and repair work on the front facade of my building and its neighbour in Drumsheugh Gardens in the West End of Edinburgh. They provided an expert service with the work completed to a high standard in a timely and efficient manner. Paul, Rab and the team are quality professionals and I would recommend their work for any external stonework.

We had the pointing, boundary wall and garden steps on our house repaired.

Communication was excellent and they kept to the timescales they outlined. We were consulted at every stage.

After an initial small deposit, they were happy to wait for payment until we were entirely satisfied.

I would recommend them without reserve.

We used Newtown Stone Repairs to repair a heavily deteriorated stone work at the entrance of our house. The stones needed to be replaced. Paul and his team did an excellent job. (See attached photos) the whole job was done in two days with no disruption to us at all. They were very pleasant and professional. They did what they said were going to do, always turning up on time, doing their work and tidying up afterwards. I will definitely use them again and would recommend without any reservations.

We live in a 1900 semi detached house in Edinburgh. The house has a large stone bay window that had several stones that had deteriorated and were leaking or holding water. In many places the lime mortar have fallen out or needed replaced.

Newtown Stone Repair replaced several sandstone blocks and did some lithomex repairs rounds water damaged stone and repaired all the lime mortar.

The front of the house is water tight again and looks looks brilliant. Not brand new but in keeping with the age of the house.

The owner is dedicated and was happy to contact on a Sunday. Dedicated to customer service.

His two stone masons one specialising in stone preparation and the other in lithomex application and finish were outstanding. They were great on site and took great care in all they worked in.

Would use them again.

Newtown Stone replaced stonework to a prominent chimney on our Grade B Listed, 5 storey tenement building in the historic Old Town of Edinburgh.

They were careful, professional and efficient and completed the work on time, to the agreed budget and to a very high quality.

They patiently supported us through the process and we would be happy to recommend them.

Impressed by Newtown Stone Repairs extensive work for us a year ago, and very glad they were able to return to undertake further more minor roof repairs this month. These were carefully assessed and described at every stage. Communication with the company was always good and helpful, adding to confidence in the repairs and that the roof problems have been eliminated.

After the excellent experience of using Newtown Stone Repairs Ltd for previous stone restoration work on our listed building. We were keen to use them again for further work. The recent work was to resolve a water ingress problem by partly remove damaged cement harling assess the situation and recomend remedial action. The action recommended was to rake out and repoint a brick gable. Again we are exceptionally happy with the work done . The whole process was thoroughly discussed and made simple and stress free for us. I would strongly recommend Newtown Stone Repairs to others.

I live in a main door flat in Edinburgh built c1890. I contacted Paul at Newtown Stone Repairs for a consultation to replace some old sandstone blocks around my front door and near one of the windows. The service and communication from Paul and his team was excellent. Rab and Mo, who carried out the repairs/replacement, were both knowledgeable and experienced in the work being done. From start to finish, including the clean up and removal of all the debris , was first class . Would highly recommend this company and would most definitely use again.

I am very impressed with the work that Newtown Stone Repairs have completed on our tenement in Bruntsfield. The stonework was in a very poor state, crumbling and falling off, and had been filled in with concrete in the past, which made it even worse. But Paul and his team have completely transformed it!

Paul, the owner, was exceptional from the start. He explained everything to us in great detail, pointing out what was wrong and the various levels of work that could be done to fix it. His communication throughout the entire process was excellent. He kept in touch with updates and potential solutions to the problems, which was much appreciated.

The stonemasons who carried out the work were not only highly skilled and experienced tradesmen, but they were also incredibly friendly and helpful. They were consistently cheerful and went above and beyond to ensure that the job was done to the highest standard. They cleaned everything up after they finished and Paul even washed the dust off the windows himself at the end of the job. He even sent someone back after the job was completed to tie up some loose cables at the front of the tenement, which was a nice touch.

I can't recommend Newtown Stone Repairs highly enough. The work they did is absolutely outstanding and the service they provided was exceptional. I know that all the other flat-owners in my tenement are equally pleased with the results. I am extremely grateful to Paul and his team for their hard work and dedication. They have exceeded my expectations and I would not hesitate to use them again in the future.

Newtown Stone Repairs Ltd carried out extensive stone replacement and stone repair work to the front elevation of our tenement. They also carried out work to rebuild the dwarf stone garden wall in the front garden and replaced the mastic round the front windows. All this work was carried out to a high standard of workmanship and the men involved were extremely helpful and responsive in dealing with any issues that arose in undertaking the work. We are very pleased with the job that they have done and would therefore have no hesitation in recommending this firm for any stone work jobs.
