Understanding the Role of Masonry Contractors
Masonry contractors are a very specific type of contractor. They are well versed in their trade but their knowledge is not restricted only to their speciality. At Soumar Masonry Restoration, we strive to ensure our clients understand exactly what we do and who does it. In many jobs, this involves a masonry contractor.
What Does A Masonry Contractor Do?
Masonry contractors are individuals who have been trained in the field of masonry construction. They play a specific role in providing builders with things such as masonry construction, masonry repair and other diverse applications of masonry. Where once masons performed this task, today people who are experienced and skilled in this area handle various types of masonry work. They know how to construct, repair and restore structures made from:

A masonry contractor is particularly skilled and experienced in this field, but needs to be capable of handling and doing so much more.
What is the Role of Masonry Contractors?
While the focus of a masonry contractor is on the specific work of masonry and all it entails, this is not where his or her knowledge ends. Masonry contractors need to have an in-depth understanding of more than the actual process of masonry. They need to have a solid grasp of various other aspects pertaining to the project they and their crew may undertake. In particular, a masonry contractor must know about:
- the laws and regulations involved in the project (e.g. permits, licenses, inspections, tax payments lien laws);
- the ability to estimate aspects of the job such as material, labor costs and how things like weather, availability of manpower, general contractors and architects may affect the costs;
- insurance regulations and types required (e.g. worker’s compensation, unemployment, property damages, theft, car and truck, fire, accident and business loss); and
- the types of tradespeople that will be on the job together, along with the factors that will govern their relationship with the masonry contractors (e.g. union regulations).
