What is masonry? This is a straight forward question but the answer has a long history behind it. The shortest answer is that masonry is the profession of working with stone, mortar or concrete in construction. Stonemasonry and masonry are pretty much the same thing but masonry uses mortar where technically stonemasonry does not have to. But nowadays the words are pretty well interchangeable.

Masonry, or stone craft, is one of the oldest forms of construction and has created the most historically significant structures on the planet. Stonehenge, the statues of Easter Island, the Parthenon in Athens and the great pyramids and sphinx of Egypt are all examples of masonry. They are made with different types of stone and created with different methods but all the buildings and monuments from ancient history are examples of the discipline. So there is one thing you can count on when you have good masonry work done; it will last a long, long time.

There have been many advances in the industry since then and we would like you to look at the rest of our website to see the many services we can provide for you. You may be surprised at all the work qualified masons can do.
