Our Milwaukee Stonemasons Draw Equally Upon Engineering Expertise And Artistry
Everyone loves the look of brick and stone landscape structures. Whether it is a pair of brick pillars on either side of an entrance sidewalk or a hand-built stone retaining wall around a patio, masonry work lends an air of solidity to any landscaping.

Few people realize the level of skill required to create stone and brick structures. Custom stonework requires years of experience dressing stones to make them fit together perfectly, and an artistic eye is as important as technical skill. Using chisels and hammers, as well as a few power tools, our Milwaukee area stonemasons create beautiful and lasting stairs, walkways, pillars and patios.
We often get inquiries about repairing and repointing brick walls and patios. We have done this for many homeowners and will be happy to provide you a free quote for restoring your masonry. A word of caution, though:
If your masonry structure dates to the mid 1800s (or earlier) to the early 1900s, be cautious of any mason who does not understand the difference between the “soft” mortar used at the time the wall was built and “hard” mortar, which didn’t become prevalent until about 1930.
The use of “hard” mortar, made with Portland cement, can result in serious damage to historic bricks due to its impermeability. Instead of moisture seeping through the mortar, it is forced to escape through the bricks. This causes the face of the brick to deteriorate, which exposes the inner part of the brick to the ravages of weather—which ultimately causes rapid erosion of the brick.
