Masonry Technique

The team has a critical eye.  They are experienced in various masonry technique. Whether it is dry stone, with mortar joints, using polymeric sand or set in stone dust.  Most importantly, the masons on the team are highly skilled stone cutters.  Moreover, they truly enjoy their work.  You can hear it in their whistle while they cut, shape and sculpt stones with precision. 

When Sal is away from his mason work, he is probably in his vegetable garden, making wine or playing bocce. Maybe he is watching Italian soccer, entertaining family and talking about how Ischia (his hometown) is the most beautiful island in the world.  Sal’s biggest passion and favorite toys are probably pizza ovens. His ovens are efficient and high functioning, many can be found on the brick oven and stone oven page.
