Business Information

We are an independent RICS accredited building surveyor located in West Lothian providing Home Surveys (Level 2 and 3) and bespoke Building Surveys to owners of residential and commercial buildings. We specialise in surveys of pre 1919 traditional buildings constructed of natural materials like stone and slate.

We offer a fresh approach to building surveying by combining traditional building inspection methods with the latest drone technology. High level masonry and hidden roof areas can now be inspected quickly and safely without the need for expensive cherry pickers or scaffolding!

Our surveyors benefit from many years of experience and our drone pilots are GVC certified and authorised by the Civil Aviation Authority.

Building survey to address leaks and identify any other repairs and maintenance tasks required for traditional sandstone house.

Punctual, helpful, informative, methodical (including use of thermal imaging, moisture sensor and drone inspection).

Clear communication and explanations before, during and after the survey.

Detailed report included all photographs taken and web links for further reading on the advised repairs.

Stoneworks provided a comprehensive and detailed survey report on the condition of the communal tenement roof. This has proved very useful and will also stand us in good stead for the future.

I needed an expert to conduct a masonry survey of a broken boundary brick wall of a house I had offered to buy.
Not knowing who to ask, I found David via Google and am glad that I did.
He was helpful on the phone first explaining what he could and couldn’t do and shuffling to do it quickly for me.
His quote was transparent and reasonable so I engaged him. He provided me with a professional written survey with extensive photos and both short and long term actions.
I am very pleased with his survey and will definitely use him again if I need similar surveys.

We wished to have a roof survey undertaken in connection with a potential tenement flat purchase. David was able to undertake the survey at very short notice, using drone photography. His report followed very quickly, and he provided a link to the extensive set of photographs taken during the survey. His report was very clear, and he was extremely responsive and helpful in responding to our follow up queries. We would not hesitate to use Stoneworks again.

David responded quickly to my enquiry and carried out a site visit to assess the problem. He provided a thorough report and recommendations for action along with guidance on how best to proceed. His expertise was very useful and he was helpful and professional throughout.

I am the owner of a property in a small block which consists in total of 12 flats, and Stoneworks have just completed a building survey for us. We require a roof repair and we were being given vastly differing costings so decided to have a building survey done before proceeding with any work.
David's report is extremely comprehensive and will allow all owners to proceed with confidence on any necessary work requiring done on the building. David was very helpful and nothing was too much trouble for either him or Mitchell. There were no delays in replying to any of our emails nor did we feel we were taking up too much of their time. Also the cost for the survey was very reasonable and compared favourably with other quotes we received.
Having spoken to the other owners we would all be happy to use Stoneworks again for any of our individual properties.

I asked Stoneworks to survey the rear elevation of my flat to produce drawings for submitting an application for Listed Building Consent and Planning Permission.
David visited in less than a week and sent his drawings less than a week later.
I was happy with the survey as he advised me and we discussed various options.
The computer drawings were better than I could have produced by hand.

We had a multi home building surveyed by David. We needed alot of roof work done in particular and the quality of the pictures he took to assess the building were amazing and thorough, the fact he used a drone to get photos of areas that were tricky to access gave us massive confidence in his survey! David's report was very in depth so i would highly recommend Stoneworks, we will use them for any future jobs that we need.

Stoneworks we’re engaged by us (4 owners of separate flats within a Georgian A listed Building) to carry out a survey to help identify stonework defects which may be contributing to a water ingress. The report we received was exceptional, which included highly detailed photographs, some taken using a drone. The accompanying consultation from David, who has extensive experience in his field, was thorough and no question was too much trouble. The ingress has now been identified as a result. Very glad to have been referred to Stoneworks and would recommend 100%.
