Jim Flanders began creating with stone as an apprentice at just 14 years old. Today – 35 years later -Flanders is a City and Guild’s trained stonemason, employing a small team of skilled craftsmen who are highly sought after by discerning Perth builders, architects, designers and home owners.
Our architect recommended Flandersstone. We arrived at the showroom early and whilst we were waiting we had already made our decision before Jim arrived as on display was a large white marble Louis 16 mantelpiece which me and my wife fell in love with. Jim and his son Daniel expertly fitted it in our main lounge area where it sits proudly and we are so pleased. We would have no hesitation recommending Flandersstone.
Just a quick note to say thanks for your help with the stone, I am the type to shop around for the best quality and the best deal, after driving all over Perth, I kept coming back to Flandersstone. I found stone that I thought looked similar, but on closer inspection turned out to be random sizes that would never look right. I also have to say thanks for all your advice which was priceless. Everyone comments on how good the stone looks and I am really pleased with the result.
We recently renovated our 20 years old home. The beautiful stone feature wall around our koi pond looks truly amazing. It is very striking and also is a great wind block from the sea breeze. Jim and son were also very easy to deal with. They were pleasant and professional all the way through. I recommend them to everyone who wants perfection, quality and a wall to stand the test of time.
Flandersstone was recommended to us by a fellow stonemason. I purchased 150 m2 of mixed brown traditional building stone for my client. Jim promised no wastage and easy to work stone. That is exactly what we got and more with the little tips Jim gave us and his know how. The job went smooth and it was a pleasure doing business with Jim. Highly recommend.
We are from Melbourne and came across Flandersstone on the internet. We ordered two magnificent stone and marble large mantelpieces. Jim's expertise and guidance was first class. The mantels arrived in wooden crates professional packed and once we opened them we were thrilled as we could see immediately the quality carvings. Jim's help with a phone call was invaluable when our builder required it. We would highly recommend Flandersstone.
