"No job is too big or too small for these hard working boys! Thank you Rocco Masons for installing the 800 lb Italian fountain in our backyard. Job well done!!
We also were honored when The Schwandt's asked our Stone Carver & Masonry Designer, Ryan Watson to design and carve them an angel for their entryway, along with the homes exterior Masonry! For a time lapse of this hand carved Indiana limestone guardian angel click on HERE!
"We couldn't be happier with the results of the work done by Rocco Masons. With Ryan's help, we achieved the look we were hoping for. We are doing a renovation to our 100+ year old character home on Queen St. Our goal was to spruce it up while paying respect aesthetically to the traditional appearance of our home.
I've always loved angels! After giving Ryan an idea of what I would like to have, he went to work to design and carve a beautiful piece that we are proud to embrace as part of our home. She is an amazing work of art - Ryan is a truly talented artist.
Ryan and the boys also installed the beautiful stonework on the front entrance stairway and to the front exterior of the house. The job was done professionally and in a timely manner. They gave us a date for completion and it was done on time!
Thanks to Ryan, Nicolene and the boys for their knowledge and exemplary customer service".

The original owner of this three piece fountain purchased it from a store in Edmonton, AB who imported it from Italy. It was fashioned after the baroque fountains in Rome who used fountains to supply drinking water, while providing a decorative and dramatic effect.

More about Co-Owner Nicolene
Nicolene Watson, Co-Owner of Rocco Masons since 2013. "Nicolene is self taught and the brains behind the scenes at Rocco Masons. She naturally knows how to run a business inside and out having had office jobs her whole life. When she wants something there's no stopping her", says Ryan Watson, Nicolene's husband and the companies Founder & President.
As soon as Nicolene came on board in the Spring of 2013, she took over all aspects of the company's finances and accounting with the generous mentorship of her good friend Margaret who happened to be an honorary Commerce graduate. Since Nicolene had a day job, all of this work had to take place after hours. Two months in and she was asked to come on board full time. That summer she immediately wrote and published a new website, entered Rocco Masons on all social media platforms, and set out to tell the world about her husbands undeniable Masonry talent, especially that of hand carved architectural stone detail.
Fast forward to 2017, and with no shortage of blood, sweat, and tears, ROCCO MASONS is highly recognizable with a Masonry crews reputation unlike many others. If you've started a business from the ground up with little to no capital, then you will understand the hard work and dedication it took to accomplish this.
Today, Rocco Masons is coming up to 3,000 followers on instagram, almost 1,000 LIKES on facebook, and a healthy following everywhere else! It's safe to say that Nicolene was born with a natural nack for owning and operating a successful business. Today she Directs all aspects of the business operations including Accounts Payable/Receivable, Human Resources, Web Design, Marketing, Advertising and of course all Social Media platforms. "I've finally found a career that fits me perfectly at fourty and love everything about it (even the bumps and bruises along the way) *laughing*, but I will admit, telling the world about my husbands talent and our awesome crew has got to be my favorite hours in the day"!
