Christchurch is well-known for its Gothic Revival style buildings, a legacy of an early city architect. Sites like Christ’s College Dining Hall, the Canterbury Museum, Trinity Church and the Arts Centre Clock Tower are great examples of beautiful stonework by stonemasons in Christchurch’s younger years.
But not all stonework needs to be constructed on such a grand scale. If you’ve got a garden rivalling that of the botanic gardens that needs an ornamental stone path, or perhaps you’re interested in rebuilding a stone structure levelled by the earthquakes, or maybe you just have a crumbling stone retaining wall, then you should employ the help of a CHCH stonemason.
What does a stonemason do?
These stone workers don’t just chisel rocks you know. Stonemasons can form perfect stones for your house or garden path by shaping the rocks and fitting them together like a jigsaw puzzle, and have experience with using materials like concrete to fill in the small cracks between rocks for a sturdier structure.
As well as a range of other activities that involve stonework, a stonemason can:
They work with a range of stone materials such as limestone, volcanic rock, schist and granite and may employ tools such as lasers for stone cutting.
How can I find a suitable stonemason?
The easiest way to find yourself a stonemason in the area is to use Builderscrack. Here, you post an advertisement for your job, which will be seen by many stonemasons. The tradies will then get in contact to show their interest in your project.
Include in your job description the size of the area that you’re looking at, whether they will need to source stone or not, when you would like the job completed by, and possibly some pictures of how you would like it to turn out. Putting as much detail as possible in to the ad will give you the best results.
What credentials and details should I obtain from my tradie before starting the contract?
Following this guide you’ll be able to find your perfect stonemason in no time, so get posting!
