Stonehealth is a UK based company offering products and consultancy for sensitive stonework restoration and conservation.
Stonehealth was set up by Brian Crowe in the 1980s as a supplier to the building, conservation and restoration trades with ethical and reliable products. One of our first products was the revolutionary JOS system which is now replaced by the more effective TORC system. TORC is hugely effective in removing carbon sulphation, limescale, cementitious and lime-based paints.
We are also responsible for the DOFF system, which removes most paints and other coatings and biological growth without the need to use a biocide.
We supply a wide range of other effective stone cleaning and repair products including ‘safe to use’ chemicals. For example, our Cleanfilm product is used for internal cleaning without the use of water and we also offer stone and brick repair materials and poultices for stain removal.

My career commenced in sales and proceeded through marketing, general management to Board level with an international slant with a number of small and large companies operating in the textile, agro chemical and toy industries.
Together with Eileen, we founded Stonehealth in the mid-1980’s since when the Company has influenced the knowledge and attitude of building cleaning with the introduction of innovative products that have been used on many notable buildings both in the UK and overseas.
In recent years there has been a number of personnel changes that have resulted in a much-improved customer-focused team that has moved the Company forward. In considering the future succession of the business some of the key personnel have been appointed Directors.
