Repairing Dry Stone Walls


03/01/2014 by RayRobinson

After contacting 5 local drystone wallers for an insurance quote, Richard was the only one who came promptly and gave a written quote as requested. He got the job! He soon carried out the work of repairing our walls to our entire satisfaction. He worked steadfastly and tidily and coped magnificently with other workmen on site being in his way and also being surrounded by the 'Hunt' ! He is also a really nice guy to work with and we would definitely use his services again in the future.

Following an accident with a delivery lorry my wall was knocked down for 3 mtrs. Richard gave me a very quick and competitive quote and carried the work out over the weekend as the wall posed a significant risk. Work was completed quickly and to a high standard and all waste cleared away. I would use Richard again and recommend him to others. Kevan Johns 11th Dec 2013.



Building work at Glebe Barn

Richard has worked for me on two occasions in late 2012 and again this year. Both jobs have been carried out professionally and in an extremely competent manner. Richard is a tidy worker who arrives when he says he will and gets on with the job. The work is completed thoughtfully to a very high standard, which is particularly important to me as my house was built in 1860. I would recommend Richard to anyone in fact I have already recommended him to a family member.




Repoint & Capping large red-brick wall

Richard repointed & capped a large, ~3m/10ft x 15m, section of red brick wall at one side of our house. He turned up on the agreed date, on time and completed the job to schedule, and tidied up after himself. Price and workmanship excellent and on top of that Richard was/is thoroughly pleasurable to work with. We'll be engaging his services again without hesitation for the other side wall of our garden. Definitely recommend his workmanship and business relationship.




A difficult job superbly executed on budget and on time

I asked Richard Dolman to build a wall in the River Avon as it flows past my garden and to landscape the bank. The site was difficult to access and all materials had to be barrowed from the road and across a low stone wall. Richard made light of the problems and was enormously flexible when I changed the requirement as we went along. The project was finished on time and on budget. I am delighted with the result and judging by the innumerable positive comments made by members of the public, who can see his work from the footpath, the project was complete success.
