Chimney Rebuilding/Masonry

The pair of masons sent out by A&A were fast (about five-six hours), tidy and did clean work, as far as I could tell looking at the chimney from the ground with binoculars. The company owner dropped by in the evening to pick up our cheque, which was exactly the estimate, and we had a nice chat.

The next day, a company rep phoned up to check that we were satisfied with the work. It's attention to detail and customer happiness that kick a merely competent contractor experience into one worthy of a solid recommendation.

Thank you Marc. I only regret I didn't have longer to chat because you and Becky are a very interesting couple, and I knew I was missing out on some good stories when I left.

rebuild chimney, tuckpoint, and replace bad bricks

House built 1912. I needed my chimney rebuilt, tuckpointing in various areas around the house and deteriorated bricks needed to be replaced. I did some research on the work needed (right outside temp for brick work, mortar type, brick type, etc). I had about 5 quotes mostly from last fall. This spring (Apr 2010) I chose this company partly because they called me to find out if the work was done already. The only company to remember my house. Another reason I chose this company is because Andy was honest with me. He was not the cheapest of the 5 quotes but my house is not the easiest to work on either. I thought Andy was fair and his employees were hardworking professionals. Well worth the money. Chimney looks proper, bricks match very well, mortar matches perfectly.

Approximate cost of services:
$5,600.00
What could this company do to improve their services?
Tell the customer the start date at least a few days in advance. My notice came the day before work began. Worked great for me but it might not for someone else.
Any advice to offer fellow homeowners facing a similar project?
Do some research so you know what you want and can understand what the company plans to do. Get a few quotes.

Thanks for taking the time to write this review, Dave. Got it on the short notice and I will take that advice! I'll pass your compliments on to my guys. They do take pride in their work and it's good for them to know they are appreciated.

chimney repair

Our chimney was in need of major repairs. Andy took the time to explain all of our options. We had estimates done by other companies but none were as friendly, honest and priced as well as A & A Home Improvements. The work was completed by a very professional and skilled team. I would definately recommend A & A Home Improvements to anyone!

Restoration of a brick garage - repair and repointing

Our brick garage, built circa 1920, was badly in need of repair and repointing - before it fell down. Andy at A&A and his lead mason did a thorough review of what we required done, and then the work was executed on schedule a month and half or so later.

In addition to color-matched repointing, new longer lintels over the door opening were installed, the frontof the garage and the parapets were rebuilt, and portions of damaged brick as necessary were replaced. Some extra work to our home was also completed.

The work done was excellent and we are very satisfied with not just what was contracted, but with having the crew on our property. They worked quickly, competently, listened to our requests and although it's probably their usual standard of workmanship, seemed to us to go the extra mile in completing the job.

Cleanup was very thorough, something that made the next trade to arrive, to replace the roof when A&A was finished, have an easier job of it.

I recommend Andy at A&A Home Improvements without reservation, they exceeded our expectations.

Chimney and masonry repairs

A&A Home Improvements was one of several contractors we spoke with about performing masonry repairs on our 90 year Arts & Crafts bungalow. Andy was quite responsive throughout the process, from scheduling the initial review of the project, to scheduling and completing the work. The assessment of the work to be done was thorough, including climbing up on the roof to directly inspect the chimney, rather than inspecting it from the ground as several others had done. Andy also understood the need to perform the work so that the finished product fit appropriately with the period and style of our home. The estimate was neither the highest nor the lowest we received, but was definitely competitive.

On the first day of work the team, Guy and Knoll, arrived on time and began making progress immediately. They rebuilt the chimney, as well as a portion of the front porch, and did tuckpointing and brick replacement in several places around our home. They kept the mess around the house to a minimum, communicated with us very effectively as work progressed and cleaned everything up afterward. The finished product is great! We would definitely work with this team again.

Chimney Rebuild

I am a new home owner, so finding a reliable contractor was a little unnerving, but A & A put any worries I had to rest. I work shift work so it was important that I hired a company that required little supervision, they came and rebuilt the chimeny in two days all while I was at work. They matched the new chimney well to the existing brick, it looks great.

Tuckpointing, rebuild chimney & new gas liner

We were very impressed with the guys from A&A. The colour was matched impeccably to the colour of the existing mortar, and of course the chimney looks wonderful as well. The guys themselves were courteous, quick and quiet. We had a really pleasant experience with this company and will certainly look to them for our future projects!

tuckpointing

We had the mortar on our 1950’s home repaired by A & A Home Improvements and they did a perfect job. During the Quoting process Andy took the time to meet with me and explain my options which I really appreciated. Joe and his coworker did an excellent job not to mention they arrived and finished on time. I found everyone I dealt with friendly and professional. The new mortar matched the old mortar exactly and the job site was left in immaculate condition. I give Andy, Joe and the rest of the A & A Home Improvements team and A+.
