Masonry Helper

Masonry helpers assist brickmasons, blockmasons, stonemasons, or tile and marble setters by performing duties requiring less skill. Their duties include cutting materials to specified sizes for installation, erecting scaffolding, mixing mortar, plaster and grout, applying grout between joints of bricks or tiles and assisting in the preparation, installation, repair and rebuilding of tile, brick or stone surfaces.

Work Conditions

Although most masonry helpers work in residential construction, nonresidential construction is growing in importance because most nonresidential buildings are now built with walls made of some combination of concrete block, brick veneer, stone, granite, marble, tile and glass. As in many other construction occupations, the work is physically demanding. Masonry helpers must often lift heavy materials and stand, kneel and bend for long stretches of time. They usually work outdoors, and poor weather conditions may reduce work activity. Muscle strains from lifting heavy materials are the most common injuries. Other hazards include injuries from tools and falls from scaffolds.

Employment Outlook

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of masonry helpers is expected to grow by 29 percent or more between 2010 and 2020, much faster than the average for all occupations.
