Stonemason Job Description

A stonemason is a person who works in stone.

As of 2012, most stonemasons work on jobs related to residential construction, such as building patios, walkways, and fences.

Stonemasons cut, shape, and polish stone to create items such as patios, retaining walls, fireplaces, and interior walls.

They may also restore antique stone.

Some stonemasons specialize in a particular style of stonework, such as dry-stack or tuck-pointed.

The stonemason’s craft requires patience, strength, and skill.
