Repointing and refurbishing of our front garden boundary wall.

Greig was entirely reliable and carried out the work in a most efficient and professional manner. He completed the job to an excellent standard and the work was carried out in a very tidy way. I would have no hesitation in employing him again or of recommending him to any of my friends or family. A very able professional who knows what he is talking about and does what he says.

We are very happy with the high standard of professional craftsmanship of the work carried out by Torus Stonecraft to the front of our tenement wall, stonework surrounding windows, and cornice above. They were excellent at communicating before and during the works what needed done, explaining what they were doing and why, and very reliable and tidy. Very confident in their skill and would not hesitate to recommend or use again.

I needed a small but important repair to a wall which showed signs of water ingress and Greig came over and offered advice and a couple of options. I was pleased at how soon the job could be fitted into his schedule and Greig and Ian arrived promptly. The old cement pointing was raked out of the inside and outside of the wall and replaced with lime mortar - the result is excellent. They were very efficient, tidy and friendly and when I spoke to the neighbour who helped with giving them access she was pleased with how things had gone. Greig offered further advice on the stonework in the building and I would not hesitate to recommend or use his services in future.

It was a simple job, replacing an old plastic repair to a chimneyhead. Greig was very easy to deal with, and did the job quickly and tidied up beautifully. Can't really vouch for value for money because it was too small a job to get another estimate.

Greig did a fantastic job repairing the sandstone at the front of the house - I am so pleased with the end result. He managed to complete the job in less time than I thought and left the site extremely tidy! I would definitely recommend Torus Stonecraft. Thanks Greig!

Fantastic service by Greig at Torus Stonecraft - not a large job and was happy to come out and asses, and then did a great job of the repairs. Also gave a really good assessment of the other stonework - much more trustworthy than some of what I’d received from others; willing to say what did and did not need attention, and what sort of timeframe. Planning to have him back again in the new year for some more work! Fully recommended.

The work was well planned and completed on time, Greig and his colleague were very personable in performing their work. really pleased with the finsihed job, Greig has blended the new stone work very well with the existing masonry. Took time to describe the work he had undertaken. (Didn't have any other quotes to compare against hence 4/5 on value as I don't have reference).

The minute I met with Greg I knew I wanted him to do the sand stone repair job on my Victorian mews building in Edinburgh West End. He is a very knowledgeable stonemason and a good guy. When his quote came in it was a little more expensive than the other but I felt it was worth it as I immediately trusted him to do a quality job which he did. His communication throughout the job was excellent and I would highly recommend him for an stone repairs.

We had decaying stonework attended to on our property - around back and front doors, on lintels above doors, on supports for lounge bay windows.
The work was carried out promptly, efficiently and effectively. We could not have had better service. We are very pleased with the results and would recommend Torus to anyone.

We had a new chimney built. Torus took photographs and videos to show the work needing done at every stage. We were kept informed of progress at all times. The finished job is of the very highest standard. So glad we chose Torus from those who quoted.

I would highly recommend Torus Masonary, they are professional and polite. Greig did a great job laying and sealing our sandstone tiles. This was a challenging job as the floor was not level but they completed it with ease. Excellent job!!

A very professional company who explained what was required clearly and carried out the work to a high standard. Stabilised and repointed my old wall and did a beautiful job repairing stonework on our front entrance. Greig communicated promptly and made sure we knew how the work was progressing. I would happily recommend Torus Stonecraft to anyone.

Greig (Torus) and his team were very professional in costing and carrying out the job to a high standard and were very pleasant to deal with. Final timing and costing for the job were as per the estimate and the work site was left in tidy state at the end of each day and at on completion.

Torus Stonecraft kept us informed of developments as the project progressed, reliably arrived and left the site at the times they set, reacted positively to customer suggestions and left the site tidy. The team worked in an unintrusive manner, discussed issues with our neighbours and minimised the impact of their activities on others.

They were also humane, delaying work until some corvid fledlings left their nest, which had been built into chimney pot that had to be moved.

Review Comments
One is never sure one will get a good tradesman these days so it was with some trepidation that I began the exploration of who to use to repair damaged stone on my property. I collected a few quotes and went to visit a few sites with the suppliers I had selected. Greig's made arrangements to visit some of his previous work which I did. The work looked solid and reliable and the one customer I did speak with offered praise for the work done.

The quotes I received were wide and varied with some wanting stone replacement of mullions etc but I was impressed with Greig who indicated that he felt all could be repaired. Whilst not the cheapest ( possibly as others were insisting on stone replacement) I was more impressed with Greig. The level of repairs he was suggesting were more comprehensive that others who seemed more willing to do more partial repairs. ( one will never know if partial would do but I suspect not). As such the repairs suggested by Greig looked to me to offer the greatest chance of success together with his level of detail on what would be repaired and his plan around what needed to be done. If there was any improvement it would be just to spell out for consumers precisely what will be done and what will not, but Greig did follow up with detailed pictures of which stone would be repaired. I would suggest that should be the standard.

The work commenced and I have to say Greig was even more thorough than I had thought. The attention to detail in removing the previous repairs and the finish were first class. It was messy and dusty which we hadn't really anticipated but I suspect that can't be helped with grinding lots of stone. The end product has however been excellent

I would recommend that if anyone needs stonework done and wishes a quality finish then they should look no further than Greig. We will use Greig's services to do further work on the stone over the course of the next 2/3 years
