In the past, masonry contractors used dry stone piled together with the larger and heavier ones lying at the bottom while the lighter ones topped the structure. There was no binding factor back then as residents resolved to gravity as their solution. It was like building a sand castle for adults.
However, the introduction of cement revolutionized the whole idea of stone masonry thereby bringing a new phase. Structure could now be made taller and stronger due to the new concept in hand.
For years our Stacked Stone Masonry Tracy company has been handling commercial and residential customers. We've been successful with finishing driveways, fireplaces, fire pits, patios, foundations, stamped concrete, concrete construction, and many more.

Overall process Involved in Stacked Masonry - Tracy, Ca
- Location of the site for the masonry project to take place: First, you should have the precise location of the area you have in mind for this activity. This will grant you an idea of how you would want it to appear before it is carried out. It could be an indoor or outdoor activity.
- Establishment of the phase:This is done by driving bars into the ground where the stone masonry activity will take place. Afterwards, string is used to guide us as we excavate the space chosen by our customers. It thereby creates the platform for the stones to be used and the area to be occupied. This will also help in having a clear estimation of having the right quantity of material to be used. This prohibits waste of the required resources.
- Building phase: First, the corner stones are placed with cement used to bind them together. Slowly, the flat faced stones are placed to fill the area while keeping it compact with more cement. The layers are filled slowly until we reach the desired specification laid by our customer. For a raised walking platform or short wall, cement can be left out. Using the required tools at each stage, the wall is built in a manner it wouldn’t collapse. The procedures vary with the type of activity carried out in each category of the stacked masonry to be performed.
