  • Expansion Joints: Masonry is an extremely durable form of construction but modern science must be applied to compensate for its few shortcomings. Expansion Joints are specially designed to give a bit of flexibility to masonry projects so that they do not crack due to being too rigid.
  • Precast Architectural Elements:: As there are many patterns of concrete blocks and stonework that are widely used; to save time certain companies have created precast architectural elements. These ready made elements allow for faster construction as it is not necessary to wait for the elements to harden. Cowen Quality Masonry will show you all the possibilities in precast elements so you can find the pattern which meets your needs.
