Few construction materials stand up to the sands of time as well as solid brick and stone. Masonry is an ancient craft responsible for many iconic structures, and modern practices make brickwork an even more durable choice for both residential and commercial buildings.
B & K Masonry, based in Broad Brook, has been providing reliable masonry services for clients throughout Connecticut since 1989. Below, they explain some of the many tasks an experienced masonry contractor can perform.
Whether you’re building a stately home or a new office building, brick and stone offer a combination of solidity and aesthetic appeal unmatched by any other material. Masonry contractors are skilled in the use of many modern materials — from humble, sensible cinder block to decorative glass blocks — that can add a contemporary edge to even the sturdiest of structures.
Another benefit of brick and stone is their resistance to high temperatures. Because of this, the materials are used in the construction of most chimneys. While chimneys add a lot of value to a building, they also require a lot of maintenance. A masonry contractor will take care of any necessary inspections and repairs.
Major renovations on brick structures typically require the services of a masonry contractor. For instance, to open up a wall for new doors or windows, modern masons may install steel lintels to maintain the structural integrity of brickwork while allowing more flexibility in both aesthetic design and function.
Whether you need a simple chimney repair or an extensive renovation to a longstanding structure, B & K Masonry will provide the ideal solution for projects throughout Connecticut.
