Frequently Asked Questions

Q. How much does it cost?

A. Usually we price our work by the square meter, then we times the square meter by a rate (e.g. 10 square meters of stonework x $250 = $2,500 + GST)

(II) Another example might be how much will it cost to install two entry pillars at two meters high x 450 squared (7.2m squared x $370 per square meter for south island schist = $2,664).

(III) How much does it cost to build a stone fireplace up to mantlepiece height? Say the fireplace is two meters high and 500 meters wide, that’s approximately four square meters x 450 per meter squared (for Wanaka schist), which equals $1,800 + GST.

Q. How do I clean my new schist or keep it in good condition?

A. First, your new schist should already be cleaned by your stonemason. Secondly, a waterblaster usually does a great job. Third, you can extend the life of your newly cleaned schist by applying a sealant to it, which we can price for you.
