Our technical staff provide free consultation to architects, other specifiers and self-builders in order to assist in the selection and design of all cast stone features. Involving us at an early stage in a project ensures that all issues can be taken into account such as design, technical performance and budget parameters, as well as scheduling deliveries to suit building programme requirements. Our team at Procter Cast Stone are always happy to help in any way they can, and we know from many years of experience that this can be invaluable to our customers. One of the reasons for this is that for many of the people that we deal with, cast stone features are a very infrequent purchase – or even a one-off purchase for self-builders. As a consequence, this is relatively specialist building product is not something which everyone knows a great deal about and therefore, having technical experts on hand is very important.
Our technical consultation service has a number of stages and possible levels:
Site survey service for cast stone projects
Procter Cast Stone offer a site survey which is ideal for challenging projects such as restoration to discuss in detail the technical requirements for cast stone features, take dimensions, assess quantities, agree schedules, match existing stonework colours and to give other technical advice and answer questions about cast stone generally. This will also be done where a client chooses our in-house installation. Where the project is building renovation and where there are a number of different designs of cast stone feature to be installed, a site survey from us is generally recommended. Should a client require a survey, a fee will be payable (POA) with the exception of projects where products are installed by Procter Cast Stone.
Expert advice and help
A site survey can also just be part of the technical consultation process where our potential customer is weighing up the advantages of cast stone over quarried stone and is looking for expert advice and help. Where this is the case, a site survey allows for the full assessment of all factors and therefore clarity will ensure as a result of the onsite meeting.
