How to Hire a Mason


A mason is a skilled tradesman specializing in constructing various buildings, walls, or foundations using mortar, brick, stone, concrete, or other building products. Hiring a mason contractor is similar to hiring any other type of contractor. Here is a checklist to follow when considering to hire a mason.

  • Product Options - Can the mason provide advice on which product to use? For example, stone, brick, cobblestone, etc. for your project.
  • Cost - What is the cost to lay each brick, stone, etc? Ask for cost of labor and cost of product.
  • References - Obtain at least 3 references to call to ensure that the quality of the work is high.
  • Warrant - Will the mason provide a warranty or guarantee on their work? If so, what's the length of the warranty and what's covered?
  • Timeframe - How long will the project take and when could the mason start?
  • Cleanup - Make sure that the mason agrees to cleanup the entire area after the job is completed especially considering mason jobs can get very messy.
