Nick Tarantella, Owner/Operator
Having grown up in a family of skilled stonemasons, Nick Tarantella knew that he could utilize his strong skill as a stone mason and ethical business sense to build his own company known today as Magnasin. He began an apprenticeship in Canada back in the 1980s where he learned and later perfected his masonry skill. Now with over 30 years experience as a mason, Nick runs and oversees the daily operations at Magnasin.

The title of bricklayer and stone mason are often used interchangeably. While these two professions do share considerable overlap in duties and requirements, the truth is that not every bricklayer can be called a mason. The difference, largely, comes down to skill level. Though there are no specific distinctions for the terms, it is generally agreed that masons have learned advanced bricklaying techniques that set them apart from the traditional bricklayer.
