1
What Should You Look for In a Masonry Contractor?
2
  • Even if your budget is limited, saving money by
    hiring an amateur masonry contractor is never a
    smart choice, as aside from ending up with stone
    work that youre less than happy with, it could
    cost you a lot more to correct the problems when
    your budget permits.
  • Masonry contractors are qualified, trained and
    highly skilled at what they do, and if youre
    looking to have some unique stone features added
    to your home or garden, you should never
    compromise by choosing a cheaper tradesperson to
    carry out the work.

3
  • That said, just because a stonemason tells you he
    or she is a professional with all the relevant
    skillsets, how can you really be sure? Listed
    below are some of the key competencies that all
    masonry contractors should possess, and even if
    you know nothing about stonemasonry, youll
    likely be able to spot them if you observe their
    work or talk to others who may know more about
    the trade
  • Key competencies of a masonry contractor
  • A reputable masonry contractor should be able to

4
  • identify and correctly maintain the tools and
    equipment relevant to the trade
  • appropriately use the tools for any given job
  • identify and establish the requirements of a job
  • make sure the job site is prepared and made ready
    for work
  • adapt the job site environment and where
    necessary, install temporary masonry support
    structures
  • clean and disassemble the work site and where
    necessary, install wall system accessories
  • apply grout in the appropriate manner, place
    mortar and adequately prepare masonry units
  • lay out masonry
  • build structural masonry and refractory systems

5
  • construct non-structural masonry fireplaces,
    maintain, and restore existing masonry
  • waterproof below grade masonry
  • demonstrate safe and appropriate working
    practices and procedures at all times
  • As well as being able to display the above
    competencies, it goes without saying that a good
    masonry contractor should communicate effectively
    with you, present themselves in an appropriate
    manner and remain professional at all times. Many
    of the same standards that you should look for in
    any type of contractor, apply to stonemasons, and
    your gut can often tell you a lot about whether
    someone is the right person for the job, or not.

  • Hiring a masonry contractor for flagstone
    walkways and a variety of stone and brick
    structures
  • For anyone wanting to give their home or business
    a unique and attractive look with the use of
    stone or brickwork, a masonry contractor will
    help you achieve that. Usually having spent years
    honing their craft, they are able to do things
    with stone and bricks that no general builder
    could ever dream of doing, and they are
    absolutely worth paying extra for.
  • For driveways, restoration projects, new
    commercial constructions, retaining walls or
    unique stone features in home and gardens,
    masonry contractors can help give the wow factor
    to what would otherwise just be a pile of old
    stones or bricks!
