COMPANY OVERVIEW

Masonry Technology, Inc. provides the leading technology for the masonry industry when it comes to removing moisture from building envelopes. Only Masonry Technology, Inc. products put the "tunnel" weep holes at the lowest point of the wall, where the water is, and allow all the water to escape, every time. For over 25 years we have invested ourselves in making improvements for the masonry industry.

We have also invested in providing Contractors, Architects, and Engineers useful information and just as important - making that information easy to find and use.
