Self-Build and DIY Repair

The best place to start for anyone looking to purchase and build with natural stone is “Natural Stone- A Buyer’s Guide”. This publication is full of tips and advice for sizing, ordering, building and caring for the natural stone on your self build or DIY project, and is used as a great reference point by many of our customers when working with natural stone. You can check out “Natural Stone – A Byuer’s Guide” here.

Natural Stone – A Buyer’s Guide sets out the best practices for measuring and scheduling many of the most popular components that our customers order, and also incudes a guide to some of the more commonly used terminology when working with natural stone.

We’ve also included a selection of handy reference charts and tools to download below. These include our course height guides for setting out your natural stone with other building components, and a selection of stone component drawings that are useful if you aren’t sure on the exact sizes of the natural stone on your project.

If you are looking for something more project specific, or would like advice on something a little bit different to what is shown in our standard guide then please get in touch with our team to see how we can help.
