• ABOUT US

  • My name is Davide, I am the owner of Italian Touch Masonry. I am originally from Italy and I moved to the beautiful city of university place about 15 years ago. My passion for masonry was inspired by Mason artists from my home town in Italy where masonry is a form of ancient art craft. I have done extensive work in masonry and am proud of my portfolio that you can access in the Gallery under “Our work”. I would love to speak with you and set up at a time to help you to create a custom look for your residential or commercial project.

  • What is Masonry

    Masonry is a building process where units – typically bricks, blocks or stone – are laid on top of each other and joined by a bonding compound called mortar. When done well utilizing quality materials, masonry provides a strong and durable structure. When used as a structural element, units are used whole. When used as a design element, a thinner, front face of the unit is used. This is called a veneer.
