Replaced bricks and window sills

Forgot to leave a review after the job was completed, so I'll write one now.

I chose this company because Steve gave me the best quote. Very happy I did because Steve's experience was invaluable in fixing a crack in the brick wall on the side of my almost 100-year-old home. In addition, they replaced some bricks and two window sills (brick ones replaced with limestone). They were also kind enough to seal the gap between the wall and foundation. It's been almost a year and one harsh winter later everything looks solid.

Very professional and courteous - showed up on time, finished in a day, had a nice chat about the life of a stone mason in Toronto.
Very happy overall, would definitely hire Steve again.

Tuck pointing of brick up the side of our house

Steve gave us a competitive quote and was detailed in his description of what the job would entail to repair our masonry. He and his son came out one Saturday morning in June to repair a couple of large cracks that ran up the side and across the front of the brick/stone on the exterior of our house. In a short time, it was looking like brand new! He even kindly offered to put some caulking that we had on hand up along a small space at the top of our porch roof where we had a wasp next last year to help us avoid another wasp issue while he was up there. Thanks for a job well done! I would definitely recommend Steve to anyone (and already have done so).

Front Steps

We had front steps that were crumbling and a vestibule with cracked tile,Steve came and examined everything and made some suggestions, and we decided to take his advice, we had some delay because of the heat and then rain, but we now have a front entrance to be proud of, thank you to Steve and Tyler.

Concrete front steps

I called Steve in the spring to replace our crumbling front steps. Once the weather improved and he was able to demolish the old steps, the construction of the form and pouring of the concrete went very quickly. Now it's July and we have very nice-looking, permanent steps that we are happy with.

Spalding and flaking bricks

I needed to replace some spalding and flaking bricks and some brick window sills with precast concrete as they don't deteriorate like brick.
Steve did an excellent job. It is obvious he has many years of experience in the area of masonry. He can also provide good recommendations on how to proceed. He is also reliable. If you hire Steve you will not regret it.

Garage Brick Replacement & Cement Repair

We have a patio on top of our garage that caused quite a bit of problems over the years. Water would go into our garage and get trapped between the drywall and brick layer. Essentially over time, brick just started to crumble. Due to the moisture, it created a provide ground for a bunch of carpenter ants to create their colonies. We got rid of the ants last year by removing all the drywall.

Long story short, Steve and Taylor came repair all the damaged bricks. As he started pulling the bricks down, he noticed that the joist (part of the frame) was completed rotten due to moisture and ants building their colonies. He was able to help replace the rotten joist, find the source of the leak and replace all the crumble bricks! Throughout the process, he kept in touch letting us know what's going on.

Additionally, we've looked at 5 different masonry on Homestars. He's the only one that provided a reasonable quote. I would definitely recommend him to all my friends.

Thanks Steve. Really appreciate the work.

No-Showed Twice (with No Explanation) for Small Job

Arranged to be home (at the date and time requested by Mason Restoration) for a small job on our front steps, but they never showed up and never gave an explanation. After we rescheduled and they still failed to show up I asked if they weren't interested or if something had come up, but never heard back from anyone. Weirdly unprofessional - maybe they just blow off small jobs? Very disappointing.

Bricking in a window in an older Semi-Detached House

They did great job of matching the older bricks and properly framing the the wall. Very clean work. Arrived on time and did as expected. Very satisfied with the work overall.

Brick Damage

I had very damaged brick in the back of my townhouse, I had many contractors come and turn the job down as there was no direct access to the back yard. The obstacle was that they would have to come across two backyards to get to mine in order to complete the job. Steve came looked at the job looked at the obstacle that was a head of him and agreed to do the job within a reasonable time frame. It was a challenging job as there was no direct access to my home and the height of the townhome was an issue too as that required more equipment that they had to rally over two fences. My neighbors were so kind in allowing them to use their backyard as a path for Steve and his workers they too played a huge part in this accomplishment.
