Innovative producers meet growing demand for alternative masonry products

Automacad inc., Candiac, QC, J5R 6X1, Canada


Natural and manufactured stone veneers have been adding value to homes and commercial properties for over a hundred years. While natural stone is undeniably beautiful and durable, installation requires significant time and the skills of a professional mason to achieve the desired results. Unfortunately, finding skilled masons has become increasingly difficult. In a July 2018 survey of its members, the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) found that 65 percent of respondents experienced difficulty in finding masons. A 2015 study by the Associated General Contractors of America found that 55 percent of masonry contractors had trouble filling vacancies. A 2018 study by the Business Development Bank of Canada found that 48 percent of construction firms found it difficult to hire the skilled workers they needed, including masons.
