Masonry is at the heart of what we do for commercial and residential projects throughout the Chicago area. Whether working with brick, block, tile, terra-cotta, or stone, the skill and precision of our expert masons can never be replaced by machines. Our expert masonry teams will work closely with the general contractor to build your commercial or residential structure in the material you choose: brick, stone, marble, granite, travertine, limestone; concrete block, glass block, stucco or tile. Masonry structures built in compression, preferably with lime mortar, can have a useful life of more than 500 years, compared to 30 to 100 for structures made of steel or reinforced concrete.

Choose our masonry services to

  • Increase the thermal mass of your residential or commercial building
  • Provide your structure with reduced life-cycle costs because the brick general will never need painting
  • Provide fire protection
  • Withstand the test of time with brick and stone masonry structures that are resistant to wear from extreme weather, as well as debris from projectiles during high wind

Proven Durability & Strength

Masonry is a highly durable form of construction, and our work is built to stand the test of time, even in the face of Chicago’s harsh winter weather conditions. We combine the highest quality materials for your project, including top of the line mortar, with expert workmanship and time-tested masonry assembly patterns to guarantee the durability of your overall masonry construction. Our masonry units, including brick, tile, stone, glass brick or concrete block conform to the requirements specified in the 2003 International Building Code (IBC) Section 2103.
