Richard B. Souder Masonry (RBSM) has been serving the Bucks and Montgomery County areas since 1977. We pride ourselves on our ability to meet a wide range of masonry needs from home repairs, remodels and additions as well as large commercial projects ranging in price from several hundred dollars to million dollar plus projects. At RBSM we provide skilled craftsman who are hand-selected for the scope of work on the project.
We are a small company with a team mentality. Our workforce is comprised of dedicated and talented employees, most having been at RBSM for many years. This type of commitment has helped us to continue striving for new levels of excellence, which has led to a commitment from our customers, many of whom have returned again and again. We are also members of Associated Builders and Contractors. Inc., Mason Contractors Association of America, Better Business Bureau and the Indian Valley Chamber of Commerce.
As with our work in the field, excellence and precision in our estimates is of the utmost importance to us. We employ Tradesmen's Master Estimator (www.tradesmens.com), a masonry-specific estimating program with the capability to generate 3-D images of a takeoff from blueprints. These images can then be faxed or emailed to confirm scope or help envision the different appearances a project might have.

Block – All types including architectural cmu.
Brick veneers of varying sizes including special shapes.
Pre-cast and Limestone.
