STONEHOUSE - WHO ARE WE?
Our history, our team and what
makes us one of the UK’s leading
structural waterproofing contractors
Since 2000 Stonehouse has been at the forefront of the structural waterproofing and property care industry in the UK and abroad. When we started out we were focused on solving the problems of timber decay and dampness, services that are still very much part of our work. But demand for our expertise soon led us underground to basements and cellars, giving us the opportunity to expand our breadth of structural waterproofing services and the variety of clients we can support.
We now handle an exciting range of work, from the more challenging new-build commercial city-basements to the sympathetic preservation of the Country’s most treasured historic buildings. We cover England and Wales, mainly south of Birmingham, with occasional escapes to the sun – Gibraltar, Italy and France.
We are at the forefront of research and development in our industry, always using the best quality, most environmentally friendly materials. When we cannot source a product, we have it exclusively manufactured.
Our 10 Year Guarantees are insurance-backed.
