Stone masonry is a specialized trade that takes years of experience and expertise to perfect. If you’re thinking of having any stone work done on your home, it’s important to find a qualified contractor who has a proven track record.
When it comes to construction/remodeling around your property, anyone will have second thoughts and concerns about what needs to be done.
Take it from us – not all masons are created equal, so be sure to do your research before hiring one. Even though we offer FREE estimates, we always recommend that you compare quotes from at least 3 different contractors. Ask friends and family for referrals, or check online reviews to see what others have had to say. When you do your background work, you can bring your vision to life while ensuring the work is done correctly and safely.
However, with our vast experience, we are perfectly able to understand your thought process and deliver the physical context with precision. Our various projects are prime examples of a strong and experienced team.
Estimating Masonry Projects
There are many different types of masonry projects that require varying quantities and volumes of materials. These can range from the relatively simple task associated with an unreinforced single garden wall to more complicated endeavors, such as when you want tester blocks or bricks close together so they form a solid structure without gaps between them like in architecture class.
Even the most seasoned construction professionals need help estimating their projects. If you’re working on a large-scale renovation or new build, it’s important to have accurate material costs so that everything is planned out properly and no one part goes over budget due to an error in estimates. The complexity of these tasks makes them difficult without specialized software like architectural estimation programs which can provide more precise information about each individual component than humanly possible through visual observation alone.
Masonry Wall Construction
Masonry walls are the most common type of wall found on properties all across America. There is a lot that goes into building them, but it’s worth knowing what your options might be when you’re looking at potential materials for this kind: load-bearing structures made with steel or stone; reinforced concrete which can provide extra support against earthquakes if needed–and even composite panels designed specifically as insulation!
Load-bearing walls are a great way to directly transfer the weight from your roof onto ground level without any expensive foundation work. These masonry materials ensure that all this pressure is quickly discharged through cracks or gaps in between bricks, stones, etc., which makes these types perfect for both interior and exterior use.
Reinforced Masonry Walls
Masonry walls are made up of two different types: load-bearing and non-load bearing. Reinforced masonry can withstand tension forces, heavy compressive loads, or even earthquakes because it contains steel bands that help bind the brickwork together so no one piece breaks off under pressure! Unreinforced foundations will cause them to crack easily with an increased settlement from changes in soil moisture level as well as stronger quakes happening all over earth due to plate shifting close enough where you live.
Hollow Masonry Walls
The use of cavity masonry walls has many benefits, such as preventing moisture from reaching the interior and helping with temperature control. These hollow spaces also reduce fire risk by limiting flames’ passage through them.
Composite Masonry Walls
This type of masonry wall construction is generally done to offer a better appearance as well as reduced overall costs. The composite material provides the best in both looks and cost, but it’s not without its downfalls; you must take care when installing this kind because there are many types that can cause problems such as water damage or pest infestations if they aren’t sealed properly with mortar first!
