Over our long history working with cast stone, we have become industry-leaders in replication and
restoration work, in both gardens and, increasingly, in the field of architectural stone. This side of the
business focuses on what Chilstone can do to add value and character to your property, whether that
is your dream home, or a public, commercial building that needs the wow factor. Cast stone is more
adaptable than quarried stone, because it is easier to mould in order to replicate historical features,
or to fit with a modern design style.
The Chilstone range of window and door surrounds, cornices and quoins, are hand-finished to
accentuate fine detailing. We can create made-to-measure moulds to reproduce multiple copies,
ideally suited for replacing original architectural features, such as window surrounds, or broken sections
of balustrading. Importantly, we can also cast moulds from an adjacent property to allow your home
or business to sit harmoniously in its setting. Whether classical or contemporary in style, we can copy
existing stonework, or design new stonework to blend with your local architecture. Again, our colour
match service is invaluable, giving coherence and unity to new extensions, or softening new builds in
classical, period locations. We have helped many clients to improve rather than move, often using old
sepia photographs to revive the history of a building. You might simply want to increase the value of
your property, by adding one of our bold, columned porticos, which lend a sense of gravitas.
Whether your project is traditional or modern, our team of highly trained staff will be able to advise
you in detail. The architectural staff can provide free CAD drawings, liaising directly with your architect
or project manager, guaranteeing the best products for you are delivered on-time and with ease. They
will also be able to show you past construction projects, so you can see how we work and gauge what
is right for you. We know we keep saying this, but we love communication with our clients, so don’t
hesitate to give us a call.
