Fireplace repair

The fireplace was very drafty and in poor shape. The draft has been eliminated. I have not used the fireplace after completion of the work so am holding off on 5 stars for the moment!
The work was done promptly within the provided time frame. The crew cleaned up reasonably well. The crew also discovered that the damper did not need to be replaced as initially quoted for so Bob adjusted the invoice appropriately.
Overall good experience and will use them again when needed.

Tuck pointing of Masonry wall and restoration of brick work

Bowman Masonry has done a couple of jobs for us over the past few years. They repaired and restored the brick work on a detached garage and, most recently, tuck-pointed some badly deteriorated areas on a Masonry wall. Both jobs were done with professionalism and I would not hesitate to use them again.

Chimney / fireplace repair

The work was done well. Leading up to the work could have been better. Contact with the company became an issue. The date the job was going to be started kept changing and I was left guessing when I should prepare for the work.

Repairing porch stonework

We had disintegrating stone on and around our front porch. Likely damage from salt, freeze/thaw and originally, poor installation.
Nigel repaired our porch; his work is beyond exceptional.

Restoration of pillar

Crumbling pillar was restored with better material more resilient to snow, water and salt (previously used stone was too soft for this type of construction).

Cement restoration and resurfacing.

Our front porch cement was absorbing water which was leaching down into the brick below, and causing issues with stairwell as well. The stairs were crumbling from water damage as well. They cut out the cement stairs, stripped down the cement on the front porch as well, poured new forms for stairs, resurfaced the porch with a 2 coat system, fixed up all the brick surrounding the porch and stairs that was damaged, and fixed the underside of the porch as well, where the water was soaking through the concrete slab. Cutting out the stairs and the rebar was no easy task, and they handled it very well. I had a few small issues, and the GM came back himself the following day to look at, patch up, and fix; service was second to none.

Chimney reconstruction

It was a pleasure working with Bowman Masonry. The whole team (Bob, Brian, Val, Reynaldo, and Jessica) were very responsive to our requests, answering all questions and providing suggestions on a safe and lasting solution to our problem. Their quote and timeline met our urgent needs and were met without issues or delays. The work was professional and looks great.
I would recommend Bowman Masonry to family and friends.

Chimney rebuild on a victorian house

They furnished us an estimate quickly, and once we decided to go ahead the work was done quickly (one day to demolish the old chimney, a couple to build the new one). The chimney looks great and the people doing the work took care to clean the site at the end of each day. They answered all my questions and delivered on budget.
