Masonry restoration in the 21st century is an intricate industry with a large percentage of our projects performed on structures built between 1850 and 1960. During the construction of these buildings, the material expenses far exceeded the cost of skilled labor. Because of the low cost of labor, men could work many hours to ensure care, detail and precision. The result was beautiful masonry structures at a minimal price.To build the same intricate and detailed structures today, the labor would be cost prohibitive. In the past, a tremendous amount of time could be allocated to build these magnificent masonry structures. Today, the opposite is true. Nearly 90 percent of project costs are now directly related to labor, with the balance going toward materials.
