Like so many other natural resources such as oil, gas and coal, stone has a finite existence, so it’s always a good idea to use reclaimed materials when and where possible. In recent years, individuals, businesses and local and federal governments have taken great steps in reducing the effects that we have on our environment, and here at AGM Stone we’re determined to do all we can as well.
Our determination to utilise reclaimed stone is far more than just a quest to help the environment, however. This is a material that’s been used in the past, that once looked attractive and once served a purpose, so there’s no reason why it can’t do so again. It doesn’t particularly deteriorate over time, it maintains pretty much the same look and it remains as functional as ever, so why not make the most of it?
Reclaimed stone that was originally produced in smaller quantities without an emphasis on mass production is often stronger and more durable than that which is made today. AGM Stone are proud to use these materials when the opportunity arises, in part because we feel we’re celebrating the methods and techniques of the past, while at the same completing wonderfully attractive projects.

And if you’re a surveyor, a project manager or an architect, you’ll be pleased to know that reclaimed stone is generally cheaper than new stone products. Having to keep a close eye on budgets when overseeing a project can be stressful, of course, but it’s reassuring to know that this is one particular item that’s likely to be stress-free when you’re adding up all the costs.
Needless to say, reclaimed stone can also prove to be extremely versatile. What was once a surrounding wall in a large garden, for example, can easily become a fireplace, a pathway, window and door surrounds or just about anything else. The skills and experience of stonework professionals can help to create a brand new use for stone that may at one time have been unnecessarily destined for the landfill.
To find out more about the benefits of working with reclaimed stone, for the environment, for the budget and for the overall look, all you have to do is get in touch with AGM Stone. We like nothing more than discussing our commitment to making the most of materials that are already in existence, so call 07493 348 845 today. We look forward to speaking with you.
