The State of Masonry: June 2019

Words: Bronzella Cleveland

After the first survey in our data mining project for the MCAA and MASONRY closed, we wanted to provide our readers with the results. In this detailed whitepaper, you will discover our findings, which include: demographics of our respondents, company sizes, and spending habits.

This survey is the first of 4-6 planned surveys for the year. It was distributed to all MCAA email addresses and expanded to the wider universe of masonry professionals via social media. Approximately 700+ responses were collected, with respondents funneling into Owner/Manager, Career Mason, and Supplier tracks. All respondents not self-identifying within those three categories were not eligible for participation.

Survey and giveaway of Home Depot gift cards are in no way sponsored, endorsed, or donated by Home Depot or its affiliates. Survey was open to all US-based masonry professionals age 18 or older. One entry per person. Participants who completed the survey and supplied their email address were entered into a random drawing for one of two $100 Home Depot gift cards. Chances of winning varied depending on the number of survey responses. Winners were randomly selected from collected emails. Entrants who completed the survey without supplying an email address or were disqualified due to background prior to being able to enter an email address were ineligible to win. Winners were selected and notified on 4/23/2019.
