Auckland Stonemasons: Stone Work Specialists For Your Home

Home to stone structures like the Bluestone Room, with its grand stone floor entrance and volcanic stone walls sourced from Mt Wellington, the historic Auckland Town Hall, featuring Oamaru limestone and volcanic basalt, Auckland has its fair share of impressive stonework.

All this volcanic rock? Well, the City of Sails is built on volcanoes – which means there’s a lot about to use in construction works. If you’d like to engage an Auckland stonemason for some stone works of your own then read on to find out more.

Tasks a stonemason is qualified to complete

A stonemason isn’t just the guy or girl that bangs rocks into shape for others to use. They’re the ones that are most skilled at using rocks to build structures, flooring or stone art.

These are just some of the tasks that stonemasons are experienced with:

  • Building stone retaining walls
  • Constructing stone fences
  • Stonework repairs
  • Stonework restoration
  • Laying stone paths
  • Building stone fireplaces and chimneys
  • Stone crack repair
  • Stonework for pools
  • Masonry

They may use tools like water jets and lasers for cutting stone, along with chisels and grinders. They work with all sorts of stone like granite, slate, volcanic rock, limestone and sandstone.

What to expect from your tradesperson

Your potential hire should be adequately experienced. Although you can find apprentices for $15 per hour, they will need to be supervised appropriately. Generally, a good amount of experience is at least 3 years in the field.

The stonemason may have completed their National Certificate in Masonry or be a member of The New Zealand Stonemasons Association.

Ask to see previous examples of their work and check references to ensure they are up to the task. If you need help with selecting materials for your project, they should be able to offer good advice on which stone types will work for your job and source them at a competitive price.

When negotiating with potential tradespeople ensure they come and assess your situation to provide a written quote.

How to find the best stonemason for your situation

When you post a job up on Builderscrack you take all of the legwork out of finding a stonemason. Include in your ad measurements, materials, timeframe and pictures to help with a quick assessment of the work to be done. With your ad up on the site, you will have stonemasons contacting you to try and win your job – rather than the other way around.
