Thorough design consultation provides assurances for Clients who are often nervous about committing to a certain design. The ability to convey a clear design brief is one of our specialties.

By having Mason & Maker undertake your remodeling and renovation projects, one of the main benefits is our ability to be versatile. We arrange all supply of natural stone; guiding you through the whole way. For a selection of some of the available stones, see our stone selection page.

As stonemasons, we can build structures, render, clad, tile and pave in exterior and interior living spaces. Retaining walls running along side of stairs, just waiting for a coat of paint…

Classico Travertine blends especially well with Australian outdoor living areas and landscape features. We also have three other Travertine colours which are available. Please contact Mason & Maker for further details.

And of course, we seal all of our natural stone both before and after installation. The difference in sealing with water based sealants is remarkable… See picture below for visible difference of seal vs unsealed.

As clearly depicted in the featured image, the Colac Uniting Church, also known as the St. Andrews Presbyterian Church is in dire need of attention. And with the church making contact with G.H.Veitch Stonemasons, we are now happy to announce that agreement has been made for our services to protect the church and its importance within the Victorian regional township of Colac. Our interest in helping to restore and protect the church and its associated structures, will ensure the structures integrity well into the future.

The beautiful tracery window on the southern aspect of the church is our priority. We will be removing the ornate lead glass work in order to protect the original imagery contained.

As the tower is shifting noticeably away from the structure, it will be stabilised and prevented from further movement; safe-guarding the public from harm was the church’s priority, whilst protecting the ornate lead-glass work, and the remaining structure, from any further damage.

Contact and subsequent agreement has been made for G.H.Veitch for our Consultative and Heritage services that are required for the protection of the Church and its adjoining structures.

Together with the Uniting Church of Australia, we will seek to remedy, maintain and enhance this beautiful church with its unique stone composition and design.
