Historical Properties

Our extensive experience in the stonemasonry trade means that we are adept at working on a wide variety of sites, including historical properties. While certain aspects of working on older houses may present challenges for less experienced tradesmen, our team is adept at navigating a wide range of construction styles and building materials. 

We regularly undertake historical conservation projects, which has given us a wide range of experience working on the structural challenges present in older buildings, including replacing supports and beams. Our workmen are also skilled in matching new adaptations to the older elements of the building, using tools to cut and shape stone to match the original facade. 

For an example of our specialised work on older properties, see our work on Burrow Lodge, a property dating back to 1885 which was built from the stones of the vessel Napoleon surrendered on! We have also undertaken conservation work at Royal William Yard, Plymouth, and at Peartree House.

Specialist Stone Cleaning

Perhaps you don’t need a structure built, but have one that could do with a polish. Refresh your home with our specialist stone cleaning and bring back that clean, ‘new house’ feeling!

For older walls and patios that may require a deeper clean, we offer specialist stone cleaning using the latest ThermaTech technology. Unlike other heated treatments, ThermaTech offers a wider range of temperatures, water pressure settings, and a higher quality of clean to deliver the most efficient stone cleaning on the market.


Our ThermaTech cleaning solutions are reasonably priced, of outstanding quality, and allow for quicker and deeper cleaning.  


ThermaTech technology offers more than just efficiency and value for money, too. Their cleaning systems are one of the most eco-friendly stone cleaning solutions available, effective at removing coatings like flexible paints, chewing gum, bitumen, oil, surface treatments, and organic matter. They are also made from recyclable materials and can be used with or without artificial chemicals.

A Personal Touch

At Torbay Stone and Conservation, we know that every home is as unique as the people who live in it. 

Whether you're looking for a rustic, minimalist, or up-to-the-minute design, we will work alongside you, your tastes, and your lifestyle, to create additions to your home that not only look great, but fit in with your routine and way of life. 

We pride ourselves on our ability to create renovations that meet the needs of the people who live there. We also have experience in building home developments to meet our clients' physical needs, including wheelchair ramps and accessible paving. 

Thanks to increased disability awareness and improvements in masonry, ugly steel ramps are now a thing of the past! We believe that wheelchair users should not have to choose between accessibility and the look and feel of their home: we can create sleek and unobtrusive ramps that fit in with the period and style of your property. For an example of our work building ramps, see this property in Torquay.

We have undertaken a wide variety of jobs on private, commercial, and historical properties. Our portfolio is an insight into some of the jobs we have undertaken. Here, you will find Before and After images so you can see exactly what changes we have made, complete with a written description of the building services completed and the materials used.

We’ve even included some testimonials from our happy and dearly valued clients - don’t just take it from us, hear it from the horse’s mouth!
