Stone Construction

Stone Age Construction specialises in the construction of buildings, using traditional brick masonry or solid stone masonry – or a combination of the two. Stone Age Construction also collaborates with architects, civil engineers and building consultants who trust owner and stonemason, John de Jager, to find workable solutions to building with stone.

Stone Age Construction also provides different options of natural stone cladding to existing walls. Natural stone cladding can be used on existing exterior and interior walls to rejuvenate the look and feel of your house. All our stone cladding are produced out of natural rocks that we break, shape and grout to suite our client’s needs. We only work with the best quality stone in South Africa and do not import any of our products.

Essentially, we understand how stone behaves.

Stone Age Construction offers technical skill and experience in the following areas:
  • How to successfully integrate building disciplines and construction materials e.g. at the interface of stone and brick/mortar
  • How to overcome the challenges of integrating stone into features like window reveals; floors and lintels
  • How to prepare a surface or building for stonework, to avoid potential pitfalls
  • How stone interacts with the elements and various building materials
  • Extensive knowledge of the features and types of stone
  • Keen understanding of binding, waterproofing, measurement and insulation
  • Preserving the heritage of stonemasonry e.g. in the construction of historic mountain passes and buildings
  • Consulting and preparing tender documents for civil engineering projects, e.g. stone selection for road works
