LAGUNA BEACH MASONRY
California has one of if not the most varied topographies of all of the United States. From the rugged Sierra Nevada mountain range to the near tropical southern reaches, you can find just about any climate and landscape in this state. Arguably one of the most beautiful, however, is Laguna Beach, located on the Pacific Coast in Orange County. With the clear blue ocean, sandy cliffs and palm trees as a backdrop, it's no wonder the Laguna Beach area has grown into a thriving artist colony over the years. Though the homes are also reflective of the diversity of the population, many of them are Spanish in style with brick and stucco accents.
Masonry chimneys, brick paved driveways and walkways and even masonry foundations abound. Adorning your home with brick gives it a lovely custom feel but also requires that you keep a keen eye for cracks and crumbling. Fortunately for the residents of Laguna Beach, just north of their town in Pasadena resides the area's premier brick restoration and repair company, Boston Brick and Stone. A family-run business for nearly twenty years, the current owner/operator Dave Laverdiere is the author of "The Chimney Specialists' Code of Ethics," a seventeen point reference for the chimney and fireplace industry.
THE TOWN OF LAGUNA BEACH
The first settlers to occupy the area now known as Laguna Beach attempted to farm the land. It wasn't long before these settlers learned to supplement their income by renting out parcels to visitors wanting to escape the valley heat, and soon the economy became dependent on the tourist industry. Not long after that, a group of landscape painters discovered the natural beauty of the area, and thus the foundation of the art community which still thrives today was born. The artists added a flair of diversity to Laguna, and their living spaces reflected that fact.
Driving around Laguna Beach, you will see everything from modern mansions to old Spanish Casitas. Maintenance is the name of the game in keeping up the older homes, and Boston Brick and Stone has the qualified and experienced contractors you can trust with all of your masonry and stone projects.
