What is Thinstone?
Here at our stone-yard in Westport we cut away the face from each piece of heavy stone to make ThinStone.
This is 100% natural stone, but now with a thickness of only one inch.This can then be fixed on directly to the wall like a heavy tile.
This direct fixing method and the lower weight gives ThinStone many advantages and cost savings as against using heavy building stone with eight inch thickness.

The benefits of installing Thinstone
Thinstone for Porches
We love adding stonework to porches and sunrooms and we carry out this type of project every week. Check out some of the projects above.
A typical porch takes only three days to complete and yet it adds a whole new dimension and a different look to your home.
Costs would typically range from €2,200 to €2,900 including all stone, mortars and labour.
You can send us your photo or drawing and we will give you a quotation.
