If you’re thinking about starting your own masonry company or becoming a stonemason, you should keep reading.

The expert in the video has more than 20 years of experience in the masonry industry, but he has had his own masonry company for about 10. He specializes in stone, brick, veneer, etc.
He’s made rock pools, retaining walls, and walkways. His business also works with concrete and pavers. Their main project at the moment consisted of many houses that needed a fake rock set up, but this material looks incredibly real.
In the video, they showed how his employees were up on scaffolding adding rocks to the chimney of a house in construction. They used Hudson Bay ledge stones, which are dry stack stones. After adding these stones, they had to overfill the joints and secure them down for a finished look.
