WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT US
Mark recently created an incredible feature limestone fireplace for our living room and we are thrilled with the result – it is even better than we could have imagined. Mark is a genuinely talented craftsperson, with exceptional workmanship and a broad depth of knowledge and skill in stonemasonry. With fastidious attention to detail and a high standard of quality, we wouldn’t hesitate to use Mark again in the future, or to recommend him to anyone with a masonry project. Thank you Mark, our family will enjoy our stone fireplace for many years to come.

We picked out the stone before we decided on the plan for our two-story beach house. The design of the house and elevation was designed around this stone that we had fallen in love with, this was going to be the wow factor of our house.
We had enormous difficulty in finding someone down South with the skill and ability to lay this stone. When we finally found someone we were very relieved. He started laying the stone and it looked nothing like what we had previously seen. He kept complaining and couldn’t quite understand the concept of laying this stone.
We did not know what to do. It was then we were put onto to Mark. Mark asked us to come around to one of the houses we were working on to see what he was capable of. He even built a small example of what our stone pillar would be like.
The builder incorrectly built the pillar as well not allowing for the stone. Mark fixed this as well and managed to build to stone pier to exceed expectations. We always get comments on this feature and we would recommend Mark and his work to anyone who would like to have stone like this installed.
He was a pleasure to work with, cleaned up after himself and his work was very professional.
Here are some before and after photos. The before shot was the local stonemason, the after shot is Mark’s Masterpiece.

Mark is a true craftsman who used his skill, creativity and attention to detail to turn something ordinary into something extraordinary. Having built an outdoor fireplace and water feature in bricks, we wanted it to have the look of traditional stonework (not just facing glued on like tiles!) Mark discussed our ideas and produced a fireplace and water feature which are not only unique but look like they are made of solid granite! We could not fault his professionalism and drive to produce the best possible result, even going the extra mile to source just the right piece of timber for our fireplace mantel. I highly recommend Mark, his stonework will not only enhance, but add a great deal of value to your property.
Mark recently completed a job for my wife and I which involved around 30m2 of granite cladding to a planter box and retaining wall. He came highly recommended to us by the company from which we purchased the stone. When we first met Mark he was very professional and spent quite some time with us to answer the many questions that we had and to explore the various options for the wall capping.
Mark takes great pride in his work and has great attention to detail. He never rushes or cuts corners, always taking his time to make sure that things are done properly.
My wife and I are both extremely happy with the end result and would not hesitate in getting Mark back for further work or to recommend him on to others.

Mark Libby is an exceptional stonemason and we cannot recommend him highly enough based on the works he has completed for the exterior of our new home. Mark is passionate about his craft with many years professional experience which is evident in his good preparation work, attention to detail and creative mix. Mark has produced some truly beautiful stone clad walls: water wall, garden walls (curved and a ramp wall) and is also creating a unique sculptured water feature for us. As well as being a pleasure to deal with in in terms of his customer focus, Mark is always on time, reliable and leaves things clean and tidy. It has been an exciting process and Mark's work has exceeded expectations. For your stonework, paving and feature work, look no further than this talented Cornishman!
I contacted Mark having just an idea of something I wanted in my back garden and the results exceeded far beyond my expectations. I have an amazing outdoor fire-pit that everyone who comes to my home is in awe of, as I am every time I look outside. Mark is an amazingly easy person to deal with and was a pleasure to have working at my home every day. I would not hesitate to recommend Kernowstone to anyone that wants original and quality workmanship.
A true traditional tradesman, quality craftsmanship and service would not hesitate to recommend to any perspective customers.
From the first moment I met Mark, I knew I was in safe hands. Great ideas, passionate, dedicated to detail. Excellent finish and value for money! A great experience from start to finish. I can recommend Mark in full confidence that he's going to deliver what you want. Thanks again for a great job!!
