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

Torus Stonecraft repaired the stonework at the front of our ground floor tenement. Email contact was good, the work was carried out very efficiently and tidily and we are pleased with the end result. I'd recommend their services and use them again in the future.

Torus Stonecraft were professional in the work that they carried out by erecting a War Memorial in Wellesley Parish which had originally was part of the Innerleven East Church. The Innerleven East church was joined with us on the retirement or their minister. Although the work was messy and dusty Torus tried their best to keep the dust to a minimum, this was not an easy task.
The wall still has to be painted but this cannot happen until the plaster is completely dry and this will take some days.
If we were asked we would recommend them to others wishing work of this kind carried out.

I recently engaged Torus Stonecraft to clean and repoint a tired looking stone staircase and balustrade on my New Town property with great results. Torus certainly ticked all the boxes for reliability, efficiency, quality and expertise. I would certainly have no hesitation in recommending or using their services again in the future.

Review Comments
Torus quoted for a project and when the project did not go ahead issued an unsolicited invoice outwith any agreement, furthermore this unsolicited invoice was issued immediately after the death of the client (my father). While other suppliers to the job waited patiently until the appropriate point to issue an invoice, Torus blundered on with an incomprehensible level of insensitivity. Chasing the unsolicited invoice through a third party repeatedly during the immediate weeks after my fathers death.
I would think very carefully about who else might be able to quote for the work before engaging Torus.

Greig from Torus really cares about his work - he's knowledgable and passionate about the quality of the finish. Thoroughly professional, he is friendly and a good communicator - so easy to discuss the work with. He was really good at explaining options in what turned out to be a much bigger project than anticipated, due to underlying flaws which were hidden by much older 'repairs' (flaws which Greig, when he gave his original assesment, had warned us might be revealed once work started). Always punctional, from sending us the original quote through to providing revised estimates and arriving on site - we were never left waiting and wondering. Overall, the standard of work was very high and to our complete satisfaction. I would strongly recommend contacting Torus Stonecraft if you care about the quality of work being carried out on your property.

After initial contact, Greig turned up on time and gave good advice on how to tackle the problem. His quote was received quickly and work was agreed and completed within a couple of weeks. It's a shame that other suppliers don't have Greig's honest approach and attention to customer service. Would definitely consider using Torus Stonecraft in the future.
