Builders merchants Complete Building Materials of Halifax are the first stockists of Stancliffe Stone’s Masonry Basics package.
The company have already supplied stock of Masonry Basics to a number of residential and commercial projects in the West Yorkshire area.
Masonry Basics is a range of standard masonry components in Derbyshire buff or Scottish red sandstone, produced at Stancliffe Stone’s own regional processing sites.
The range of cills, mullions, jambs, feature stones, band course and coping complements thei company’s traditional walling and Ashlar walling and is suitable for both residential and commercial projects.
Masonry Basics provides a competitive alternative to cast stone and artstone masonry, providing a high quality finish which retains its natural beauty over time. Each item is produced in one single piece (up to 2100mm) and the durability of the stone results in little risk of damage either in transit or on site during the build.
Neil Wheadon, director of Complete says: “Masonry Basics has already brought in a significant number of add on sales to our business, including some by word of mouth, as people have learnt of our expertise in supplying natural, indigenous stone”.
“The ability to supply the exact amount of masonry our customers want ex-stock as opposed to a 3 to 4 week lead time on alternative materials is a real advantage to us. There’s also a real misconception on the cost of natural stone masonry – adding natural, indigenous stone as opposed to other options is not actually as expensive as people think.”
