Restoration Masons do similar work to cement masons and bricklayers; however, their work is done on structures years after the original work was performed. Specialized Restoration Masons may repair and restore heritage buildings and monuments, including chimneys, smokestacks, foundations, furnaces, kilns, and forges.
