Masonry is the usage of stone or brick to build an architectural structure, and many people believe that stone was likely the first material man ever worked with in building construction. It has a number of characteristics which are timeless, and as a consequence, its popularity has endured for thousands of years.

Why Should You Get Masonry & Stone Work Design?
Residential or commercial properties which are constructed using masonry and stone work will last for generations. This is because stone is a durable, extremely robust material that is resistant to rain, snow, wind, fire, insects and rot. Best of all, it is one of the most eco-friendly materials that money can buy, and unlike newer, synthetic materials, there are no hazardous chemicals released in its processing or manufacture.
Wood can be scratched, burned or consumed by termites. Plaster walls can be easily dented, and vinyl can be bent. None of these things is likely or even possible with stone. It is so strong in fact that It can withstand a direct hit from a sledgehammer more than even concrete. It is for this reason that it was used in castles and fortifications during ancient and medieval times and only the introduction of artillery made it vulnerable.
Many property owners are turned off by stone due to the high price tag, but they shouldn’t be. Stone is costly for a reason, and this is because it works. It provides natural insulation and temperature regulation, which means it will keep your home warmer during winter and cooler during summer. With many cheaper siding materials the opposite is true. The strength of stone does not come at the expense of its beauty. It is exceptionally versatile from a design perspective and is compatible with many other materials.
