How Donahue became the finest mason in Southeast Wisconsin

We are really proud of the quality of our work and we think you will be too.  What customers keep telling us is they can see the quality in our stone and brickwork and they can tell it’s built to last a lifetime.  We incorporated back in 1994.  Quality has always been first and foremost and over the years will still employ the best craftsmen that are capable of meeting our demanding expectations for quality, cleanliness, and customer service.  Today we are proud to say we offer the highest quality brick and stone masonry in Southeast Wisconsin.

John Donahue – Owner

John Donahue’s passion for being the best mason possible started right out of high school.  He worked first as a mason laborer then moved on to a commercial masonry company where he quickly worked his way up to foreman after completing a formal 3-year apprenticeship though the Mason’s Union.  During his apprenticeship he earned First place in the BAC (Bricklayers and Allied Craftsman) competition for the entire state of Wisconsin. This award was given primarily for his accuracy, but also speed, and neatness. By his mid-twenties he was running large commercial projects.  As the founder of Donahue Masonry, he has instilled this same level of perfection into everyone on his team.  Mr. Donahue currently sits on the Milwaukee Area Technical College, Masonry Advisory Committee.  When he’s not working, you can find him out on the trails riding his bike.
