Masonry and Stone

The dictionary defines masonry as the craft of building structures with stone or brick. Masonry is a broad term. It includes layering stone or brick directly atop each other as well as the use of concrete or mortar to set the material.

Anyone can pile rocks on top of each other, but if the rocks are not set well, our New Jersey weather may break that pile. Harsh winter freezes, spring thaws, and heavy rains can fracture and wash away poorly built masonry work. To avoid that result you need stonemasons who are familiar with local conditions and have learned how to build rock structures to withstand those weather effects.

Great are the works of the LORD; they are pondered by all who delight in them.

– Psalm 111:2
