Stonemason hourly rate
For smaller stonework jobs, or if you’re charged hours on top of a day rate for additional work, the average stonemason hourly rate in the UK is around £31 – £44 per hour. Again, that rate will depend on the individual stonemason – more experienced stonemasons may charge more. You may also find that more complex stonemasonry work is also charged at a higher rate.
What does a stonemason do?
A stonemason is a tradesperson highly skilled in working with slate, marble, granite, limestone and sandstone. They work on a wide range of projects, from repairing and maintaining stone statues, structures and buildings to cutting and carving stone for home interiors.
Whatever you need a stonemason for, it’s always a good idea to discuss the details of your project with them before starting any work. Experienced stonemasons will often provide valuable professional advice and can suggest the best approach to save time, and possibly money.
Here are some of the most common jobs that you might find yourself needing a stonemason for:
- Conservation and restoration of a wide range of stonework
- Repairing old houses, churches and monuments
- Preparing and installing stonework for window frames and archways
- Cutting and preparing stonework for building interiors
- Preparing and/or repairing headstones and statues
- Sourcing and cutting marble
Most stonemasons will also be happy to offer a consultancy service to help you develop ideas and requirements for your project from the outset. The stonemason day rate for consultancy work may differ from the stonework itself, so it’s worth confirming this upfront.
