I went onto the HomeStars website and requested work to be done on my 100 year old Semi-detached home. Within hours, I received a few emails and filled out my contact info with them. Haizel from A&A Masonry called and we spoke about the details of my request for a masonry company. She understood all the terms (need to put in grout, parge the bottom of house...) that I was saying and set up an appointment.
Haizel Gura came to my home and talked to my husband regarding the scope of work (I had an appointment suddenly come up). She gave my husband her business card and said that if I had any questions, she would come back to discuss them with me.
Haizel is a wonderful person to work with. She took pictures of the brick work and foundation, explained where repairs were needed and gave me a verbal quote right away (I needed info for my mortgage lender). Once in the office, a written quote was sent by email and I reviewed and signed.
Joe from A&A called to set up a work schedule. Apparently, quite a few people are renovation their homes but he was able to fit us in - YAH!!!
Tara and Kurt came on a nice sunny day and started work. My home is 2-story and very old, plus they had to replace most if not all the mortar between the bricks and not just putting cement over the cracks in our foundation but found that it needed repair as well so we had to increase the scope of the work and I authorized the increase in costs. The next day it rained but they came out anyway hoping that it would let up. Now THAT'S dedication to your craft. It didn't stop but they were hard a work the next few days in the cold and windy weather but they finished and did an excellent job of matching the existing mortar (what was left of it) and cleaned up each day so that somebody would not get hurt. AND it came with a 5 year warranty on the brickwork.
I highly recommend A&A Masonry for any concrete or masonry work. It was a good experience all around from the HomeStars request to the end of the work.
Kudos to the very nice people that work at A&A Masonry.
