Interior brick and wood


Masonry structures are built to endure many lifetimes. Mortar is the material that binds brick, block, and stone together. Water can damage mortar joints, but routine maintenance restores them.
Patch and Repair

Patch and Repair

Our climate is subject to 60-70 freeze-thaw cycles each year. Weather and water work together and cause damage to buildings. We can repair this damage and restore conditions to like new.

Decorative Masonry

Fine craftsmanship is timeless and speaks for itself. We are passionate about preserving the beauty of historic masonry structures with the measure of quality that will endure for generations to come.
Caulking and Sealing

Caulking and Sealing

Different building materials move differently. To address these movement problems, we make "soft" joints with caulking that stay flexible. Over time, however, UV light damages caulking, so routine maintenance is critical to keep water away.

The Benefits of Masonry

Timeless architecture and masonry have gone hand in hand for thousands of years. Even before the Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans constructed their awe-inspiring pyramids, temples, bridges, and aqueducts, masonry construction has always been the pinnacle of architectural beauty and natural durability. Properly constructed and properly maintained, this remains true today.
