Information for Masonry Contractors


Taking Care of Your Investment
Adjustable scaffolding, elevating scaffolding or tower scaffolding ... no matter what you call it, it still needs to be maintained and ready to work at every job site. In this article, we'll discuss the maintenance that needs to be completed and how mason contractors can make their investment last.

Getting the Most from Admixtures
Mortar admixtures have many advantageous properties; they can activate or retard the mortar's set time, repel water and increase weather resistance, help control efflorescence, protect mortar color and more. This article explores what mason contractors and their crews need to know about the various types of admixtures available for masonry mortar, and also discusses how using these materials may affect mixing, brick and block laying, and the cleaning process afterwards.

Contractors and Building Codes
What are some factors that affect masonry's market share? Many people immediately think about competitive materials, other mason contractors, or union vs. non-union contractors. While all of these affect the masonry industry's market share, there is another, very large factor that often is forgotten: building codes and standards.

Industry Experience Leads to an Innovative Product
Non-Stop Scaffolding began in 1975 with the sole idea of making an efficient adjustable scaffolding that would help mason contractors compete in the construction industry. The company has prospered and grown, while also helping the industry with standards and compliance issues.
