Parging of rear porch, side of house, and step repair

Our 50 year old house was in need of repair. Specifically, the back porch, and the side of the house had lots of damaged bricks. The front porch had lots of cracks. Buildstrong Masonry did a fabulous job repairing and parging the two porches, and repairing all the damaged bricks. They did great work, in a very timely fashion, and most importantly, in a highly professional manner!!!! We highly recommend them!!!!

Rene was great from the initial quote through a number of revises and delays due to other work being done on my end.
Would use these guys for any further projects or repairs. Many thanks guys.

Tuck pointing, brick replacement, chimney

Buildstrong did a great job overall. They were able to match our brick and mortar on our 130 year old house very well. Brick replacement looks seemless. They worked hard to get the job done the way we wanted.

Pillar rebuild and tuck pointing

The folks at Buildstrong are very nice. They turned our jobs around quickly and the finished result is great. We have a 1911 brick home. I am sure we will be using them again.

Tuck Pointing around the whole house

I needed to have tuckpointing done all over my house (over 100 yrs old)
I had about 8 quotes and Rene's was the fairest. He was honest and told me my walls weren't that bad. The job was done within 2 days as I was on a time crunch. Definitely would hire again.

Chimney rebuild & post rebuild

I moved into my new home and shortly after had a leak on the second floor. Tried patching the roof - leak returned. Then replaced the roof and leak returned around the chimney. Decided to rebuild the chimney to sort out the leak once and for all.

The team at Buildstrong was professional and completed quality work. They took the time to walk me through options. The day the work was completed the workers on site did an excellent job communicating and explaining what they had found. Turns out the old chimney had been portly constructed without a cap which was letting the water inside.

They also rebuilt the pillar out front and it looks excellent. They did an excellent clean up job. Would highly recommend given the professionalism and reasonable price.

Repair brick divider

Excellent communication: From the very beginning of contact, Rene was responsive to all my emails related to needs and concerns. Responsive and reasonable: It was obvious that Rene had much experience in restoring and repairing brick. The very last detail of my needs for replacing bricks on the divider between my neighbour and I, on the second floor balcony, were considered. Workmanship: Joe and colleague came out to do the repair and were kind, considerate and responsive. The work was beautifully done. Affordability: I only needed to replace some bricks and add a capping. Before and after pics show the amazing work completed although I didn't opt for all the bricks to be replaced on my side.

Hey Val, thanks a lot! It was our pleasure and I'm glad that it went so smoothly and worked out so well. Great brick match and the addition of the stone on top of the wall will keep it from breaking apart for a long time. Thanks again for the kind words!

Concrete foundation repair

We had our exterior concrete foundation parged and some of the bricks tuck-pointed and Rene’s team did a great job! And on top the job was done quickly and cost-effectively! We are very happy with the work and would highly recommend Buildstrong Masonry!

Repair/Replace damaged bricks at Entrance of Victorian House

My wife and I are very happy with the repair work completed. Many bricks were crumbling and breaking apart and we needed a professional's touch. Rene (from Buildstrong) kept good communication through the process, completed the job quickly, and matched the brick colour and mortar nicely.
