April 2011: For The Record

Words: Dan Kamys For The Record In this issue of Masonry, we are featuring case studies that focus on rehabs and restorations (pp. 16-20). As is true with any profession, important lessons can come from others’ experiences, whether those experiences were successful or not. Short cuts that save money and time, but do not sacrifice quality, are invaluable assets for your masonry peers. If you have a story you can share with our readers, please email me at jmorrell@lionhrtpub.com. Case studies have proven to be one of the most popular types of editorial content we include in our publication, and I’d like to expand their usage. Teach others what you found out hands-on. Sharing best practices makes sense, especially given all the tools we have to get our messages out!
