A team from BRC recently attended a construction fabrication and restoration product training by Bonstone Materials Corporation. The team was trained how to use Bonstone’s newest line of construction adhesives for stone and masonry repairs. This training provided BRC with another resource to complete masonry repairs that will not only blend seamlessly with the existing stone, but will be strong enough to hold up for years to come.
