Masonry Division

About us:

Darrin Gray is a 3rd Generation Masonry Contractor.  His grandfather, Owen C. Gray, started O.C. Gray and Sons around 1947. 

Darrin’s Father started Dale Gray Corporation Masonry in 1971 and retired in December of 1998.

Darrin bought the business from Dale and started Darrin Gray Corporation Masonry in January of 1999.

This is one of our “Dale Gray designed” Scaffold trailers. He had about four of these custom-made in the early 70s. Having been a laborer for many years himself, he had these specifically designed for ease of use.

They may not be pretty, but they carry everything we need to build a custom or tract home. We still have and use several of them.
