Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Three generations of masons recognize Dick Kreh as the most respected voice in professional masonry instruction. Now the master mason publishes his most complete guide to basic masonry construction with Building with Masonry: Brick, Block and Concrete. Kreh distills his 40 years of teaching experience into a single volume that provides the novice builder, serious homeowner — or anyone who wants to try his hand in masonry work — with current methods and up-to-date information. Building with Masonry is also for experienced professionals who want to expand their knowledge and craft with the proven methods and challenging projects clearly illustrated in the book. As a bonus, the book includes a chapter on concrete, which is an essential part of all brick and concrete block jobs. Also included are chapters on Masonry Tools and Materials, Bond Patterns and Wall Types, Laying Block and Brick, Fundamentals of Concrete, and Masonry Repair and Restoration.</p>
