Building stone retaining walls in Massachusetts is a time held tradition that we are proud to take part in. We have spent years in the business visiting quarry's and suppliers to offer the best stone retaining wall services. Over the years we have learned what type of stone comes from what area of Massachusetts. From blue granite ledge stone with brown seam face we find in Swampscott, Lynn, Salem and Danvers area to grey granites we see in Lexington, Burlington and Arlington. Lynn and Lynnfield once quarried grey granites that can still be found in local ledge. Beverly native stone turns into a beige granite with dark seams that looks similar to the stone we find on the South shore. Saugus is famous for its rose colored stone which today we can match with plum wall stone and a quarts stone from a local supplier.
Knowing how to match existing natural stone materials is very important in stone wall restoration and construction. Where to purchase and locate stone for walls and knowing whats currently available can make or break a project.
A stone wall repair should blend into the existing wall and surroundings achieving the goal of a restoration. New stone wall construction should also not stand out and look unusual in our New England towns. Knowing what building stone is used locally helps to maintain and preserve your Massachusetts home. You would not typically put palm trees on your front lawn and the wrong stone could also have this effect and look out of place.
We also offer field stone restorations and rebuilds. Farmers walls and boundary walls can be rebuilt and restored for years to come.
