I got a number of quotes for re-pointing our chimney. Majority of "masons" said that the chimney should come down and be re-bricked. Aitalia gave us an actual quote for re-pointing, which is what we needed, which was a third of the cost of other companies' estimates to re-build it all. They showed up on time (early) on a Saturday and were done by noon. It was clear they took pride in their work as masons and I was very happy with the quality of work. I would recommend this company for masonry expertise.
