Masonry Work in Frisco
Four Reasons to Consider Herringbone Next Time you get Masonry Work Done in Frisco (and one Bonus Tip)
Herringbone is one of the oldest and most stylish brick laying patterns around. It’s been around since ancient times and for good reason. It’s durable, easy to set up, and it simply looks cool. At Brick Experts DFW, we’re big fans of this underrated and gorgeous brick pattern. Next time you’re considering brick walkway patterns leading to your Frisco garden, call us for a free no-obligation consultation.
Herringbone brick laying has been a part of human society since humans first started laying brick. In fact, it even has an official Roman name: opus spicatum, meaning ‘spike work’. That’s right. Herringbone has been popular for that long.
You can see this if you ever travel to ruins in Europe or other ‘old world’ cities. We bet that the stone mason who laid these original Herringbone patterns would have never thought their work would stand the test of time in such a way. Bringing this sort of elegance to your Frisco house really changes a backyard or garden’s look and feel.
It’s less expensive than you think
Unless you’ve hired one before, you probably don’t know how affordable hiring masonry contractors can be. Paving a basic walkway in Herringbone might not be out of your hands, but if you’re looking to set up a more sophisticated design (overlapping Herringbone rows, or a Herringbone basket weave), you may want to call a professional.
At Brick Experts DFW, we’ve got years of experience working in Frisco as masonry contractors and an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau. A mistake by an amateur stone mason could cause a tripping hazard or an ugly walkway. Don’t mess around—call the best!
It’s simpler and cheaper
Not only is Herringbone one of the oldest brick laying patterns, it’s also one of the simplest masonry techniques. Something as basic as alternating brick colors with the uniformed pattern can create a distinctive look for your home or garden without breaking the bank.
It looks cool
Honestly, one of the best things about Herringbone is the easiest to describe: it just looks cool. There’s a reason this pattern shows up in fashion, tiling, and brick walkway patterns, and that reason is that it’s attractive and minimalist at the same time. It’s never showy. We think it’s perfect for life in Frisco.
It’s for decorative use only
If you were to try a DIY chimney repair by using the Herringbone pattern, your project would end in tears. Herringbone is best suited for brick walkway patterns or flat use. It simply can’t hold up against vertical pressure. Hiring the trained masons at Brick Experts DFW is an easy way to avoid headaches or having to read a book on brick laying.
Leave the hard work of chimney repair to us! We’ve got no-obligation consulting available during business hours. We’re happy to show you how choosing Herringbone for your next decorative brick project will bring a touch of glamor to wherever you place it.
