Dry Cast Stone

The Dry Cast Stone Company manages projects from inception up to post-completion snagging and beyond. We also can undertake any remedial work that may become necessary due to repairs to the building, damage or environmental issues. We are proud of our high level of communication with our clients through the whole process and challenges really excite us – bring your plans to us and we will do our utmost to make sure that they are carried out to the letter; seeing a completed building looking just as it was intended to do in the initial drawings gives us all at the Dry Cast Stone Company a real buzz.

Planning and strategy

The Dry Cast Stone Company are specialists in the installation and maintenance of Dry cast stone and we know that much of the success of a project depends on the attention to detail which is applied from the very earliest stages of the process. Although Dry cast stone is often largely decorative, being used as lintels, sills and coping stones, but it does have a structural load to bear very often and so components will need be able to be strong enough to withstand the loads the building will impose upon them. This is the point at which integral reinforcement has to be designed as it must be compatible with the mould shape and compaction requirements. Dry cast stone is usually used as it comes out of the mould, with the exception of the removal of any burrs and protuberances, but semi-decorative finishes can be added by the pouring of an initial layer in the mould.  www.Drycaststone.co.uk  is also fully supported by professional indemnity insurance.

Installation

The units of Dry cast stone can be made quite quickly and as soon as they are ready, we can begin installation. We arrange delivery of finished items when the construction team give us the go-ahead; timing is essential in any building project, to avoid time wasted in downtime. The installation will be overseen by a dedicated Dry Cast Stone Company project manager, backed by an experienced team of fitters; the whole team will, as far as is possible, have been on board since the beginning of the project.

Follow-up and review and remedial works

The Dry Cast Stone Company  oversees the quality of all manufactured units they will be using in the installation process, achieving high standards by only working with the very best manufacturers in the sector. If there is ever a hitch, we promise to put things right because quality is our watchword. A complete review of the project will be kept on record by the Dry Cast Stone Company and a copy is available for the ultimate owner of the building, who could find it useful should any work be required in future. We will also revisit any project later if remedial work is needed because of other work entered into after completion. By using the same matrix material and the same mould, we can usually reinstall a new unit and make it absolutely indistinguishable from the originals used in the primary build. This is particularly useful in extension work.

A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul, like these sweet mornings of spring which I enjoy with my whole heart. I am alone, and feel the charm of existence in this spot, which was created for the bliss of souls like mine.

I am so happy, my dear friend, so absorbed in the exquisite sense of mere tranquil existence, that I neglect my talents. I should be incapable of drawing a single stroke at the present moment; and yet I feel that I never was a greater artist than now.

When, while the lovely valley teems with vapour around me, and the meridian sun strikes the upper surface of the impenetrable foliage of my trees, and but a few stray gleams steal into the inner sanctuary, I throw myself down among the tall grass by the trickling stream; and, as I lie close to the earth, a thousand unknown plants are noticed by me: when I hear the buzz of the little world among the stalks, and grow familiar with the countless indescribable forms of the insects and flies, then I feel the presence of the Almighty, who formed us in his own image.
