Skilled Mason Traits
- A Keen Eye and Exceptional Craftsmanship
In our modern world, masonry is one of the few fields that still utilizes individual craftsmanship and ingenuity. Each and every masonry project presents challenges that only a skilled stone mason can surmount. A good stone mason is often seen stepping back from the project to assess his progress. Their level is always at-the-ready, and they never cut into a stone or brick before determining whether both the color and shape will add to the overall continuity of the project.
- An Intimate Knowledge about Materials & Form
Stone or brick is often intermixed to provide added dimension and beauty. The trick is knowing which stone can be utilized with another. Qualified stone masons will not group a highly porous stone (or brick) with a dense one. Each would swell and contract at different rates and quickly deteriorate the entire structure.
- The Remarkable Distinction of true Masonry Artisans
Masonry expertise is a hard-won accomplishment that grows from experience. Many of Omega’s stone masons have been with us for 15 or more years. Their intuitive understanding of brick and stone is evidenced in their work.
This freestanding stone fireplace, (also known as dry-stack masonry), contains no mortar and is a true work of art. Building structures of this kind can only be accomplished by masons who fully understand stone shaping and instinctively know how to utilize stones so that they compress upon one another tightly enough to provide strength and longevity. When our master stone mason is compelled to create a project such as this, you can rest assured that apprentice masons are nearby to watch him work.
Stone Mason Skills Passed On
- An Appreciation for Masonry begins at a Young Age
Most of Omega’s masons come from families of masons who have been practicing the craft for generations. The entire continent of South America and Mexico are replete with age-old examples of masonry construction that rivals any in the world. Their innate appreciation of the art is evidenced in their attention to details that might seem unimportant to an observer.
Most importantly, they apply their expertise to every project they tackle – no matter how big or small. Omega’s stone masons are at-the-ready for your next brick or stone project.
