Known for its reliability, quality, and a goal to make the customer happy, Striebel & Son's Masonry is located right in Perham. Wayne Striebel is a full time police officer for the Detroit Lakes police force and is the owner of the business. When Striebel has time, he works part-time laying stone for the business.

Striebel has been married to his wife, Jeri, for 25 years; they have four sons Nathanael, Nicolas, Bradly and Blake. When his kids were younger they would help their dad with a few projects, and now that they are grown-up, they make time to help out when Striebel needed extra hands for bigger projects.

"I threw the sons in there just because I think it has a connotation of warmth and family; it does present this as a family effort," said Striebel.

Striebel & Sons Masonry is a small business that has worked on many cultured stone, stone, block, brick, insulating concrete forms and small concrete jobs, locally and around the greater northern Minnesota area. Striebel focuses on making his customers happy by providing them with quality work. He gets quality work by providing his time, effort, and knowledge to the work.

"No job is too small, such as sidewalk or concrete repair or restoring or replacing brick or joints in beautifully-aged brick or stone structures" said Striebel.

He began his career as an apprentice bricklayer from ground zero, he said. After 5,000 hours in the trade, he spent approximately two years to finish an online course to get his Minnesota Licensed journeyman's status. His wife was his first contracted work.

"She requested stone on the exterior of the residence and a matching stone backsplash for the kitchen" said Striebel.

Striebel wants to provide the best masonry business he can even if it means the project takes longer to complete. One of his projects took two years to finish. His plan to make the business successful is "being very matriculate, and being perfectionist. It just feeds into the whole experience, and (customers) walk away very pleased" said Striebel.

He wants to retain masonry as a craft, and not just do it as a job for monetary gain. Also, he feels if "something is your hobby, and a little bit more of a passion, then your desire to do it, tenfold."

Some businesses around Perham have received the touch of Striebel & Sons Masonry. Hamann Family Dentistry was the first exterior stone restoration project in the Perham area for the company.

Helping out neighbors and friends got Striebel started on his journey to become a masonry. The motto he goes by is "you show up when you say you will show up, and give quality" said Striebel.

He understands that a business person knows that time is money, but that is why being a small entrepreneur allows him the time and integrity to maintain the craft of the business.

Striebel is confident that his business will be known around town and other local areas.

"We're confident that once we,re used, that word of mouth will get around for the effort we put into our projects and that we perform jobs and the craft as if it were my own" said Striebel.
