Traditional Masonry

Manx stone walls | Lime pointing

Natural stonework is the traditional way of building on the Island found in the heritage of Manx cottages and barns.

Charmer Builders 2020 carry out all types of Stonework and Stone Masonry jobs around the Island from small domestic Garden Wall Repair jobs, to Barn Conversions and Building Contracts. We are happy to repair existing Stone Walls or build new ones to matching existing walls.

We use modern methods of building Extensions and New Builds and then face them in traditional stone to match existing buildings. This method offers all the advantages of using modern materials while keeping the traditional look.

We also carry out Pointing and Repointing to repair the mortar joints of your property, which not only gives your home a facelift, but prevents any harmful water ingress. Lime mortar is the traditional material used to point stone walls and has many benefits.

We can advise you on selecting appropriate methods and materials in keeping with your building.
