Garry Laing set up G. Laing Stonecraft in June 1998, although Garry himself had already been in the trade for 18 years by then. The experiences he brought to the company included, quarrying the sandstone at source, the cutting, milling, polishing and slabing of the material. Using various types of machinery, including, Mono blades, circular saws, polishing discs and milling wheels.
He later moved on to the manufacture of fireplaces, both modern and traditional. Then moving on site for the building and fixing and general restoration of old or Historic buildings and monuments. The art of carving sandstone has stood him in good stead within the stonemasonry fraternity, drawing experience from working at Moray Stone Cutters initially, then moving to Edinburgh with Watsons Stonecraft.
Also gaining vital experience from other masonry colleagues with techniques gathered from all over. Garry is now passing on his experience with his trainees, including CITB apprentices, experienced labourers and of course he also employs first class Stonemasons.
But, here at G. Laing Stonecraft we try and cover most aspects of the industry including the cleaning of buildings and monuments, making and building of fireplaces, natural paving stones, building random rubble etc. We will undertake any type of sandstone project confidently.
We have a practical and sympathetic approach to the job in hand and supply a high quality service and product showing a very professional end result.
