Stone arches

Stone arches have been around for thousands of years. The Romans would use stone to create arches that would outlast them and there are many examples still in existence today. It was only when iron and steel became the materials of choice that stone fell from favour. Nostalgia for the past prompted a revival in their use as a feature in large country houses and they are still just as desirable today.

As well as looking more pleasing to the eye than steel arches, stone arches are also every bit as strong as they look and with modern CAD technology, your stone arch can be made to measure as a direct replacement for what you have already or to provide a new feature to an existing building or home.

We are skilled in making any size or design of arches from the small scale decorative to larger projects. The materials we use include high quality sandstone or limestone and we can easily copy an existing arch for a restoration project or design a new arch using AutoCAD to your exact requirements.

Many of our projects involve work repair work on existing archways and sometimes a complete overhaul which involves the removal and replacement of an arch. Either way we can work to your requirements.

It is important when carrying out restoration projects that  the size and colour of the stone matches existing stonework and we can match both colour and size according to the existing materials you have in place.

Please have a look through some of the examples of stone arch projects we have worked on in the past. As you will see quality craftsmanship is something we take great pride in.
