Our Masonry Services include Brickwork and Stonework.
If you’re a St. Louis resident, brick homes are a common sight, and adding a new brick structure to a home or building requires expertise and knowledge. Brick masonry is a highly durable form of construction, due to its structural technique of laying out the bricks in a systematic pattern, and then filling the joints.
While brickwork may look simple, it requires experience when it comes to identifying high-quality bricks and mortar, proper stacking, and the importance of “frog” (the indent or sinking in the brick.)
New brickwork in your home can be ideal in small projects such as mailboxes or exterior low wall partitions and stairs. Larger projects may include additions to your home space where you would like to match your bricks, detached garage or storage spaces, or even interior walls to create a specific aesthetic.

Using stone as the main material in your construction project adds a very organic yet strong structure. Stones are cut and shaped to build foundations, walls, floors and columns. A benefit of using stone masonry is that it comes in a variety of colors, sizes and textures. It requires little maintenance and repairs because of its durable quality. Stone walls are typically thick and heavy, which make them ideal for exterior projects, although interior projects provide a very unique and beautiful appearance.
Stone masonry is weather-resistant and requires little to no maintenance, making it ideal for sustainable home designs.
