Malone Masonry was established in the early 1980’s in Oneida, New York.
Mike Malone (owner of Malone Masonry) was a second-generation bricklayer who followed in the footsteps of both his father, Mike and his Uncle, Joe. It seems that masonry was in his blood as he started working at an early age alongside his father, and continued working summers while earning his Bachelor’s Degree in Business from SUNY Brockport.
Upon graduation, Mike’s love and passion for masonry led him to California where he began working for a family friend from back east that had settled there in the 1960’s. It was in California that he experienced a different kind of residential masonry construction than he did back home in Oneida, where most of the work he did summers was on cellar foundations, sidewalks and some commercial buildings. This experience allowed him to develop a love for utilizing brick and stone on both exterior and interior applications, as well as almost all other masonry projects.
As Mike grew up in a bricklayer’s family, so too did his son and daughter, who like Mike, worked summers with him to help pay their way through college. Nick has since graduated from college and has been working in Advertising in the Washington, D.C. area. Nick learned a lot during his summers carrying blocks and bricks and stones, and has utilized the great work ethics that come from working very hard.
Mike’s daughter Keisha also spent summers working for Malone Masonry, and like her brother, got her baptism in hauling blocks, jack-hammering concrete, wheeling concrete, and believe it or not, in finishing concrete. She learned many a valuable lesson during her tenure, and is soon departing for The Ukraine, where she will be working in the Peace Corps teaching English to school children. She will be gone until Christmas, 2014.
One must understand that the work Mike and Malone Masonry does is more than just a job, it is as stated above, both a love for and a passion for the work that they do. He treats every job with respect and insists that no job is too small to contact him for. We look forward to meeting you and hopefully assisting you in your next masonry project.
