AAP Construction - Artisans of Stonework
In this Modern Age, Stonework is widely considered to be predominantly a matter of design and artwork, and it is a specialty for us at AAP Construction, your artisans of stonework.
Because almost all load-bearing structures use reinforced concrete, stonework is typically used for decorative and aesthetic purposes. But if you wish to use stonework to combine aesthetic appeal with load-bearing and fundamental building needs, we are pleased to meet your needs, having started off in 1993.
The fact is that behind the scenes, stonework is also a craft and a science from the point that a sawyer cuts a block of stone into a particular shape and size, to the time that a fixer mason fits various stones together to form a structure. The stone-fitting can be done using mortar, dowels, or it can be 'dry stonework'. If you want to learn more, just call us at (973) 298-1013.
AAP Construction can tell you as to how we use chisels to shape the stone, mallets to strike, and straightedge to hone the edge. We have to use these tools with skill if the stones are to be precisely dressed and fitted, specially when the job is to be done without using mortar; a technique known as 'dry stone.'
The right tool must be used on the right stone and with the right force and this knowledge is something we have been 'honing' since 1993. After all, we use granite, marble and also some sedimentary stone for our stonework projects, but they all have to be treated differently.
One thing that is not different and is a constant is quality of work coupled with a fair price. Phone us now at (973) 298-1013 to get free quotes for your stonework needs!
