Masonry, often referred to as stonework, is commonly found in the construction of building walls, retaining walls, bridges, and most other architectural structures. However, masonry can also be used for many home applications such as fireplaces, steps, road and driveway curbing, terraces, and to pave beautiful indoor and outdoor spaces. At Master Solutions Construction, we use high-quality materials including brick, flagstone, pavers, and granite to build exterior masonry designs that accentuate the style and dimensions of your property and landscaping. Working with your budget and preferences, we create masonry installations that are a permanent addition to the beauty and value of your home or business.

There are many different options when thinking of building yourself a beautiful set of stone steps. You can choose to use more rugged looking stone which may be a little bumpy or uneven, or you may choose to find some nice and flat stone that may be available in the area or shipped from areas where they are more readily available. Whichever the case, the stone should marry well with its surrounding landscape as the surrounding landscape should marry well with your personal tastes and your home.
A dry-stack stone retaining wall not only holds back the earth, it adds beauty to a landscape. A dry-stacked wall is any stone wall constructed without the use of mortar to bind it together. Retaining walls and freestanding accent walls can be built using the dry-stack technique. These walls gain strength from the weight of interlocking stones stacked with a slight batter, or upward and backward slope. Because these walls are constructed without mortar, they have the ability to bend and flex with the movement of the earth during warming periods and frost. For this reason a dry-stacked wall does not require a conventional foundation set deep below the frost line.
Backyard fire pits are popular elements in landscape design, ranging from a simple campfire, to a decorative metal fire ring, to lavish outdoor stone fireplaces.

Designed to fit most patio configurations, block seating walls can be strictly aesthetic or functional. Whether your paver patio is used to entertain once or twice a year or every weekend, seating walls can provide you with additional seating necessary for your occasion.

A custom masonry fireplace allows for complete size, style and material customization. The structure of a custom fireplace is frequently built using concrete block and mortar, while the firebox is lined with fire brick. The outside of the fireplace can then be finished with stucco, stone or brick veneer, decorative concrete, or tile.
Using stacked stone for exterior walls should not just be limited to the exteriors of buildings or to define property lines. Garden walls, terraced retaining walls, and privacy screens are all idea applications for exterior wall stone.
