Masonry

JOIN US FOR OPEN HOUSE ON THURSDAY, NOV. 2. RSVP TODAY!

If building something that will last for generations is attractive, then Masonry is a career to consider. Students enrolled in LCTI’s masonry lab will learn to layout and build structures made with brick, blocks, stone and mortar, as well as work with concrete, and tile. Students learn the different techniques for laying bricks, blocks, and stones, using the many different tools of the trade along with the safe operation of masonry power equipment. Reading blueprints and estimation of all different materials used for the masonry trade covered as well. Students will have the opportunity to gain real world masonry work experience through working on LCTI’s student built house project and projects on the school campus. Masonry students will:

  • Pour concrete for the basement and garage
  • Install brick veneer
  • Install floor and shower tile
  • Install brick facing for fireplaces
  • Apply parging to foundation walls
