A Brief History

In the early 1980s, brothers Tommy and Marvin Isaac started a masonry supply store on the north side of Houston. The store proved so successful that they opened a store in San Antonio near the International Airport. After a few years they moved the San Antonio Store to Callaghan Road on the Northwest side of San Antonio. Shortly after opening up the San Antonio store, they acquired an acrylic plant Acworth, GA, that was producing acrylic and elastomeric finishes and EIFS basecoats and adhesives. As a result, they developed an interest in stuccos as well as mortars.

The original Best Brand masonry cements were mainline masonry cements that were bagged in Best bags. The Best Brand made major inroads in to the Houston market and took over about half of the San Antonio market. Stucco cements, Best Scratch and Brown and Best One-Coat, were added to the stable of products. Building on these successes, the South Houston store was opened.

In 1999, ISG Resources, a fly ash marketing company purchased Best Masonry because Best Masonry was the only company within the US that was successfully using large quantities of fly ash in mortars and stuccos. So, Best Masonry could concentrate in the area where they had the most expertise, the acrylic plant was sold to a company in the acrylic business and Best Masonry contracted with them to furnish acrylic and elastomeric finishes.

In 2000, ISG Resources purchased Magna Wall, Inc., a one-coat stucco company. The Magna Wall line was added to the Best Brand and after a year, Magna Wall Scratch and Brown was launched. It is the same formula as the Best Scratch and Brown, except that fibers are added. White masonry cements and Portland cement were also added to the product line.

In 2004, Headwaters, Inc. purchased ISG Resources, and then in December 2007 Old Castle APG obtained the Best masonry supply chain. Thus Best Masonry joined the OldCastleAPG family of companies and merged in with CustomCrete, Inc. and Custom Stone.
