Masonry requires rigorous training and apprenticeship. You want to work with an expert who has mastered the techniques, processes, and ways of the trade. The expertise of stonemasons lie in the use of different types of materials like cement, stones, bricks, concrete, and other solid materials for building different elements of homes, fireplaces, tunnels, walls, small to large structures, and even art. To be a certified mason, one needs to undergo training and obtain certification from governing bodies like the NSCSA or the Nova Scotia Construction Safety Association.
Modern apprenticeship programs include hours of classroom training as well as on the job work. These classes often include lessons on safety, layout work, cost estimates, blueprints, and math, all of which are important aspects of professional masonry. While formal training is important, certified masons also need natural skills and abilities in handling stonework materials. Masonry company Halifax
