Karen M. says, "Juan is an amazing problem solver. My back yard needed some creative solutions to standing water issues in the winter, my desire for many planting beds and boxes and consideration for my dog’s needs. He worked with me to find cost effective solutions that look great. He’s been transforming my front and back yard hard scape and plantings for 10 years. He’s amazing to watch transform a pile of pavers into a beautiful patio and walkway. He’s even fixed my sidewalk to keep me from getting a fine from the City. He’s who I call for any significant work in my yard. He’s honest, does what he said he’d do and keeps the worksite tidy. He does amazing work and is really nice person. " Read more

What do masonry contractors do?

Masonry contractors work with materials like brick, stone, cinder blocks, and poured concrete to construct and repair structures. Masonry work includes building and repairing block and retaining walls, chimneys, fireplaces, patios, walkways, siding or brick walls, and landscape curbing.

Common masonry repairs include fixing cracks, replacing bricks or blocks, replacing mortar, tuckpointing or repointing, and restoring water-damaged stone and brick.

What are the different types of brick and stone masons?

  • Concrete masonry contractors – Concrete masons work with cinder blocks and poured concrete to install and repair driveways, block walls, retaining walls, sidewalks, columns, and walls.
  • Stonemasons – Stonemasons work with natural and manufactured stones in projects such as a stone patio, stone steps, stone siding, and stone veneer walls.
  • Brick masons – Brick masons or bricklayers work on brick projects such as tuckpointing, chimneys, fireplaces, columns, walls, and patios.

How to find local masonry contractors?

Start by searching our list of residential masonry companies, then compare reviews and costs. Next:

  • Get at least three estimates to compare. Most brick masons require an onsite visit to provide an accurate estimate.
  • Ask for recommendations from family, friends, and neighbors.
  • Select companies that are licensed, insured, and certified.
  • Verify their insurance, worker’s compensation, and bond guarantees.
  • Browse reviews and check out their previous work on HomeGuide and Google.
  • Look for masons certified by the Mason Contractors Association of America (MCAA), the National Concrete Masonry Association (NCMA), or other masonry organizations.
  • Choose a mason who is a member of a local or national masonry union. Union members are required to undergo extensive training.
  • Ask about their warranties and guarantees.
  • Get a detailed estimate, contract, and warranty in writing before the work begins.
  • Make sure the quote includes debris cleanup and removal.
  • Never pay in full upfront. Follow a payment schedule at job milestones.

After asking questions and verifying their credentials, hire the best brick and stone work companies in your area.

  • Are you certified by the Masonry Contractors Association of America?
  • Can I see photos of your past projects?

  • Does the estimate include debris cleanup and removal?
  • What additional costs should I expect?
