Cost of a StoneMason

In general it is around £20 to £30 per letter or alternatively for engravings £20 per hour.

Factors that determine the lower rate or the higher rate are:

  • type of stone
  • simplicity of font/engraving

  • Total Cost: £



What goes into making a quote/price:

Toughness of the stone

Granite, being an igneous rock will take longer to cut into and consequently cost more per letter/hour. Even though Granite as a stone has come down a lot in wholesale price in the last decade.

Simple fonts versus italicised

Roman fonts tend to be the norm, as it looks in keeping, classical and relatively straight forward as a font. Italicised fonts and elaborate fonts will be in the upper cost per letter bracket as they are technical to cut.

How long will it take:

Headstones

will take 1 month to source the stone from the right quarry. Lettercutting and engraving will take a further month, with final delivery and fitting 7 months later. The ground has to have a minimum of 6-9 months to settle before installing the headstone.

Restoration

will typically be a quicker turnaround, especially with simple engravings, like Victorian bay window restorations. We try to be flexible and expeiante as normally there is other work going on on the site and we don't want to hold up other trades starting their works.

Stone Bay window renovation

mainly for residential victorian home owners.

Exhibitions

These will tend to be time consuming as the artist will have to be in constant contact with feedback during the whole stage to make sure they are happy with progress.
