What are the Benefits of Dry Stone Walling?
Dry stone walls are known for their long lifespan, with some of the UK’s oldest structures dating back more than three thousand years. A domestic dry stone wall in Halifax, Huddersfield or the surrounding regions may last for well over a century, although it can vary depending on the type of stone used. These walls are also highly versatile, allowing you to enjoy a luxurious outdoor environment with an old-world and rustic charm.
By using alternative building techniques to wet mortar, we can install a dazzling wall that won’t crack with icy conditions. Dry stone walling is also survivable and will remain stable with minor ground movement.
