York Stone & Portland Stone - Our Fitting Service

It's important to know that you're in safe hands when you consider the implications and possible difficulties of replacing old steps with new stone steps. That's why all of our stone fitters are employed directly - we know the credentials of each worker and take full responsibility for their work.


The processes involved in removing a set of steps and installing new are varied and complex. There can be pipework that needs moving, supporting walls that have lost their structural integrity or living spaces underneath the steps to consider. Our teams are able to cope with every scenario and in all weathers except the deepest of freezes when the stone becomes difficult to work with.

We understand that maintaining access to your property is of utmost importance and always ensure that you have a working set of steps by the end of each day. If there are buggies or young children in the picture we will offer a helping hand in and out throughout the working day.
