Traditionally medieval stonemasons served a seven-year apprenticeship. A similar system still operates today.
Stonemasonry is one of the earliest trades in civilization’s history. During the time of the Neolithic Revolution and domestication of animals, people learned how to use fire to create quicklime, plasters, and mortars. They used these to fashion homes for themselves with mud, straw, or stone, and masonry was born
“I selected Johnston Masonry to repair my retaining walls after being severely damaged during the June 20, 2012 storm in Duluth. I received a competitive estimate to do the work. The work was completed in a timely manner and under cost estimates. I was impressed with the efficient and professional manner in which the repairs were planned and implemented. It was obvious that the crew that did the work knew what they were doing. I highly recommend Johnston Masonry Inc. as a company you can trust to do excellent work.”
