Why buy a Monument from T. Wrafter & Sons?

8 GREAT REASONS to purchase a Monument from T. Wrafter & Sons

  • 1

    T. Wrafter & Sons has an extensive skill base employing tradesmen and training apprentices in the Stone Trade.

  • 2

    We manufacture and import stone materials for monuments, domestic and commercial projects.

  • 3

    Attention to detail and design is paramount in our production process.

  • 4

    All works are documented in Autocad format for:

    • Application for permits;
    • Manufacturing purposes;
    • Future warranty reference.

  • 5

    Precision is our objective and we work to 2mm joints (see photo plate 1 and 2).

  • 6

    We use only premium neutral cure silicone’s in our jointing.

  • 7

    All components are mechanically fixed to the substrates or themselves, with non-corrosive metal fixings exclusively using:

    • Copper;
    • Brass; 
    • 316 Stainless Steel (Marine Grade).

    At no time do we stick or adhere stonework to a substrate.  All stone is pinned. 

    A single monument can have a minimum of 14 fixing points. These fixing points require holes into, and sometimes through, the stone components being fixed, to anchor them properly to the substrate (Concrete) to avoid movement after installation.

    Fixing holes are achieved by diamond tooling, reducing the incidence of cracking which may manifest from holes drilled by percussion machinery.
