Stonemasonry is the art of creating buildings, sculptures, and structures using stone from the earth. It is highly recognized as one of the oldest trades in the world. It has been used for almost everything, from ancient monuments, such as the Taj Mahal or the Egyptian pyramids, to ancient artifacts, cathedrals, and even entire cities. But why has this been such a long lasting trade? Let’s take a look at the some of these reasons why stonemasonry work differentiates itself from the rest.
Durability: Stonemasonry work is one of the most durable, as well as strong and weather resistant. This is the perfect material to use, especially in the New England area, as it will not be too bothered by the ever changing weather, such as snow and rain. While there can sometimes be a small amount of maintenance involved in stonemasonry work, it can stand up to heavy winds and hail better than almost any other kind of work.
Long Lasting: So many long lasting monuments and cathedrals were made of stone, and there has to be a reason for that. It’s because of the fact that stonemasonry lasts for such a long period of time. We see this with many famous works of this style of art.
Aesthetic: Stonemasonry can be one of the most beautiful designs to add to your home as well as your yard. With so many options, including interior fireplaces, to brand new patios, there are so many different ways you can add some bonus curb appeal to make a great impression.
