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.

We were having new windows installed and the lintel above our bay window was crumbling. We therefore needed a new lintel within a short timeframe as we already had an installation date for the windows. After a few false starts with masonry companies not sending quotes or submitting ridiculously high quotes, we contacted Paul at Newtown. He submitted a reasonable quote and was able to meet our timeframe. On the basis of the initial positive contact, we decided to also have the front of our bungalow repointed. We were lucky that Rab and Mo were assigned our job which they undertook over a few days. The new stone lintel was slotted in with little fuss and the pointing was done over a couple of days. Rab was extremely careful to make sure that he got the mortar colour right for us. The outcome was excellent. Good quality work from a great team.

We had the front face of our tenement building repaired. Some stones replaced and some gutter work done. Our upstairs neighbour took the opportunity to paint and repair the wood work around her dorma windows, whilst the work was being carried out. Newtown Stone Repairs we really efficient and helpful. All the workmen were friendly, mindful and very tidy. We are very pleased with the work and the step by step communications from Paul, at different stages of the work. Couldn’t rate them highly enough.

Damaged mullion removed and new mullion fitted and dressed to match. Rab and John who were the stonemasons on this job were courteous and professional at all times during this work. The finished product was excellent and we will certainly use Newtown Stone Repairs Ltd for any similar future work required.

Roof repairs: including restoration of stone-work; re-rendering and repair of a roof-level gable wall; re-bedding of chimney-pots; restoration and waterproofing of their base on the chimney-stack. Window repairs: including re-mortaring and re-masticating front and rear, along with replacement of decaying lintels and re-painting of all windows.
All roof and stone work was carried out efficiently and to a high standard, and Newtown Stone Repairs were also really efficient and helpful in organising good tradesmen to complete window-work and painting. Additionally, Newtown Stone Repairs explained work and requirements clearly at every stage. Their Director, Paul, his colleagues, and the other tradesmen were entirely reliable and a pleasure to work with.

Very happy with Newtown Stone Repairs. We engaged them to undertake a sizeable stope repair project on our 1890s Edinburgh tenement. The project included replacing a significant number of full stones, lithomex repairs, stone cleaning and gutter clearing. Their attention to detail and craft was too quality and the masons are polite & friendly. I were particularly impressed by how clean and organised they kept the on-street worksite which minimised distribution to our neighbours. Their commutation was quick and responsive.
Would be happy to work with them again.
Thanks.

Over the years our 1906 listed building in the conservation area of Leith has suffered badly from the vagaries of the weather, traffic fume pollution and general wear and tear.  We began to notice fragments of stone work detaching from the upper facade and our concern was that this was becoming dangerous. We approached several stone repair companies about this concern, mostly they were fine, some less so. 
However Paul McDonald from Newtown Stone Repairs Ltd.  calmly explained what was required to make the masonary safe and how this could be achieved. We were very aware that this was a small relatively new and young firm but were assured that they had the skills and knowledge necessary to undertake and complete the task. We were not looking for restoration in fact the brief was to 'make safe'  but that said what we ended up with was to our minds restoration work of a high order.

Paul McDonald and the stone mason Craig Brown and stone restorer Craig Morris 'Mo'  soon proved to be highly skilled craftsmen in fact we were incredibly impressed with the care and attention to detail they put into the work . They obviously took great pride in the work they did and this showed in the finish.
Unfortunatly the building is not fully repaired/restored, at this stage we limited the work to the upper third but if we are ever able to complete the job we would without hesitation use Newtown Stone Repairs Ltd.for this.

The workmanship was of a high standard and, hallelujah, they did a good job cleaning up the stone dust when they were finished. Very important!

Needed an exterior step replacing - even though it was a relatively small job Paul took the time for a long phone call to discuss the problem and clearly lay out our options. The quote we got was good and communications were excellent - friendly and professional.

Also needed some ironwork done and Paul took it upon himself to get us a few different quotes for that and again laid out our options clearly and made sure we were happy with all aspects of the work. We also set a tight schedule as we had a baby on the way and the step was becoming hazardous. Paul made the effort to get it in for us before the due date which was very much appreciated.

Overall highly recommended - the work done seems excellent and can't fault the customer service.
