Traditional Crafts

Traditional Crafts-

Stellar Builders are proud to employ some of the finest craftsmen in Scotland. So, if your project requires craftsmen who are not only knowledgeable but are extremely experienced in traditional building work, please contact us to discuss your requirements.

We specialise in traditional construction methods such as traditional plastering, ornamental plaster design and repair, and historic building repairs, where lath, plaster, sand and lime repairs may be required. In addition, we can also restore water damaged lath and plaster ceilings and walls using putty lime, sand and hair if required.

Our craftsmen also specialise in carpentry, including forming new or repairing existing roof trusses, renewing or repairing sash and case windows, hardwood finishes, wall panelling and bespoke timber details.

Our expertise in traditional building work extends to stone restoration and masonry. We carry out sand stone repairs and restoration to the highest standard, including chimney renewals or repairs to detailed sand stone ornamentation. Looking for bespoke “stone” detail that can be delivered without the expense of using real sand stone? When required we can deliver a finish to any aspect of your property that looks, acts and feels like real sand stone using sand, cement or polymer coatings, textured, pointed and finished with kiln dried sand, even showing variations in grain and colour to mirror the real thing. This method is extremely effective when repairing damaged or weathered mullions, cills and lintols to match existing.

Most modern tradesmen are experienced in the latest time saving and cost effective construction methods such as kit houses and modular construction, but few can carry out repairs, restoration or build a new property using traditional skills and materials.

Here at Stellar Builders we take pride in the fact that, while we are highly experienced in modern construction methods, we specialise in delivering high quality traditional building and construction.
