Torus repointed both sides of a large boundary wall and refurbished the sandstone pillars at the property entrance. Greig was extremely helpful, knowledgeable and hardworking. His work has enhanced the property and indeed the look of the whole street. The use of lime mortar in contrast to concrete, lovingly and painstakingly applied, is a joy to behold.

Greig and Ian from Torus Stonecraft repointed and repaired the entire rear wall of our sandstone terraced house using traditional lime mortar and rebuilt a small, crumbling wall in our front garden. Their quote was very competitive, they sourced an excellent scaffolder, and carried out all the work exactly as they said they would, when they said they would - all really efficiently and with meticulous attention to detail. I was really impressed by how they got on with the work and completed it so quickly. They have done a really beautiful job - we are absolutely delighted with it. Greig and Ian were also a real pleasure to deal with - while they worked really hard, they were also very friendly - and funny - and took extra care not only to clean up in our garden but also our neighbour's, as the wind had taken some of the inevitable dust next door. They really did go above and beyond, and I would recommend them to anyone without any hesitation whatsoever.

I used Torus Stonecraft to repair my garden wall which had been broken and buckled by the massive roots of a eucalyptus tree. Once the tree and stump were gone, Torus repaired the wall to a very high standard. It took just over a day in total and was left clean and tidy. Traditional lime mortar was used which should last 100+ years so it's money well spent in comparison to having it patched up with cement which doesn't last. Greig provided a detailed quote, turned up when he said he would, communicated well throughout by email and was generally very professional and nice to have around. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him. His work is of a very high standard.

We had sandstone repair work carried out (crumbling stone cut out and repaired, colour matched expertly) and several linear metres of pointing done. Greig at Torus was very responsive, provided a quote promptly and managed to fit in our relatively small job within a few weeks. He’s clearly very passionate about his work and very professional, cleaning up after him and the stone looks as good as new. I definitely recommend him and hope to use him again soon for a larger job involving flagstones and an internal stairwell.

Replacement of two stone skew copes on a dividing wall between my house and my neighbour's.
Greig is experienced and knowledgable stonemason who explained the works and timescales clearly. His quote was competitive and I liked the way that he took the initiative to source a more competitive scaffolding supplier. The work was executed professionally, to a very high standard, taking note of the age of the building, and within his original timeframe. I particularly appreciated his regular communication, keeping me updated and his very prompt response to any query I might have. I would have no hesitation in recommending his company to anyone requiring a stone specialist.

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.
