Who we are
Thank you for visiting our website. We are Alex and Elliot Burton and are equal partners and directors at Burton Brothers Brick and Stone Ltd.
We grew up within our family building business in Godalming, Surrey, learning to work on buildings old and new. Building with the local Bargate stone, and reclaimed materials is the area we really excelled and enjoyed the most.
Having already learnt many of the traditional skills passed down to us, in 2018 Burton Brothers Brick and stone was born.
Specialists in our field
Our plan was to specialise in Brick and stone walling projects, and period property repairs. By focusing in this area alone, we have had the opportunity to hone our skills and provide exceptional workmanship, whilst offering good value in service and efficiency.
We have good knowledge of the local building stones and can assist our clients in sourcing suitable alternatives when an exact match is not viable.
Our experience and understanding of the materials means that our quality of work is often above the means of general bricklayers who simply may not have the same level of experience. After all, this is what we do.
We are often called in by primary contractors as a specialist sub-contractor to supply and lay stone and brick quoining for their projects. We are also happy to work with clients and their primary builder who would like to use our stone expertise on their residential project.
"You can rest assure that when it comes to high end restoration/brickwork, these guys will deliver every time"
What can our customers expect?
We are built with a quality approach, bringing our passion to every job that we undertake.
You will always find us professional, courteous and polite. Afterall, our reputation is our biggest asset.
As members of the 'Buy With Confidence' scheme, we have been approved by Hampshire trading standards.
"Alex and Elliott were very friendly and knowledgeable. Being an old cottage wall, their expertise in matching lime mortar etc to the rest of the property was invaluable"
We understand that using the right materials for your project makes an undeniable difference to the overall aesthetic.
Adhering to the local vernacular, and using local materials where possible, we believe, is important not only on an environmental point of view, but is also true to local history and charm of our wonderful towns and villages.
Set amongst the beautiful East Hants. countryside, we operate our small yard. It is here that we have the facility for cutting and preparing quarried or reclaimed materials for re-use in our projects. We also display sample panels of the local types of stone we can supply, and welcome our clients to view the materials before work begins.
You can also view our carefully sourced handmade brick samples, amongst others for the perfect match to your project.
This is what our customers say:

"We are delighted with the work, we think the wall, which was seriously crumbling was probably originally built soon after the house was completed in 1910 . They repaired and rebuilt it sympathetically which has made such a difference to the whole vista of our back garden" April 2020

I would highly recommend them and will definitely be asking for their help again with other stone/brickwork projects"

Was very pleased with the standard and work ethic. Came early, worked through and didn't even accept tea or coffee.
Very easy to talk about what was required and explain what was essential as one of the house holders was blind.
“The level of service was extremely high. We had just moved into the house and there were some urgent fixes requires to make the house become watertight, along with some renovation work which the Burton Brothers completed to a high standard.
They're very polite, professional and a pleasure to have around. I recommend them to anyone I know needing work”
