Great job!

We recently hired NF Masonry for a small brickwork patch job. Niall was very courteous and professional and a pleasure to meet. We would not hesitate to use this company again or refer to others. Thank you!

Re-building part of chimney

If you are looking for good trade-man to fix your chimney, with knowledge, experience, quality work, good price, then Niall - NF Masonry, is the one you need to call. He is straight forward man, very easy to talk to, reliable and his most appreciated and valued quality is his honesty.
He came as promised, with good matching batch of new bricks (hard to match 30-years old ones) and even-though the brutal weather last week, he (with his helper Alan) finished the same day.
Clean work, no problems, everything we asked was explained and done.
We are very satisfied with the result and he deserves much higher then 10.
Thank you Niall and all the best, because you are the best! Viera

Chimney repair

I called Niall back in April to repair my chimney that had bricks spalling and cracks. He personally came to see the chimney and told me what he need to do, made some suggestions like adding a rain guard to the flue and provided me with a quote very quickly. Some other companies that I called either didn't return the call or asked me to send them photos and sent me quotes based on those photos. Out of everyone I called, Niall was the only one that gave me a sense of comfort that he could do this job appropriately. The summer was busy and we did not get around to calling Niall back until September to give him the job. Niall was very good at returning my call, told me he would call me a few days before starting the work, and would honour my original quote. Niall and his assistant showed up, did a fabulous job and stayed late so they could finish the work because it was going to rain the next day. They did a great job cleaning up and removing all debris from our property. All in all…Niall is super pleasant and does great work. I would recommend NF Masonry to anyone without any hesitation.

Chimney removal

Niall and his young assistant Adam were prompt and very professional in completing the chimney removal project at my Beaches home. He is great at communicating (provides such a prompt reply and is patient to explain the work process if you have any questions), keeping the promise regarding the job date (very reliable), and keeping the price at the more reasonable than his competitors (fair).
As many reviewers have said, the workmanship is great and his team pays a great attention to details. He took photos and shared with me too. The chimney was not used by both myself and my neighbor and it was logical for us just to remove to prevent future hassle (some areas were deteriorating and chipping). Prep. and cleaning take as much as time as the job itself if not more. (i.e. scafolding) The removal was done in a couple of hours. Including the prep and the clean-up, it is a day job. Just one note for those who love their flower bed, and edible gardens near the job site. Cover them *completely* to protect during the very dusty stone and brick cutting work. Contractors (I have had 4 different contractors this season for house reno. for egress window cutting and chimney removal) do not know the debris and dust of the cement/brick falling from the cutting site and roof actually ruin your flowers and plants. They all got weak and dying. Other than that you will get a clean and professional job that neighbors complement if you work with Nialle and his team. Highly recommend

Chimney rebulid beautifully done

Niall contacted us, visited, and gave us an estimate in 24 hrs.

A chimney for a fireplace recently converted to gas had spalling, cracking and needed a new cap. To keep it matching the other chimneys, it needed corbelling and also brick that matched the type used in the other chimneys.

Niall did a great job with a beautiful result. He was very easy to work with, efficient, and extremely skilled.

We highly recommend NF Masonry.

Chimney Repair

Many thanks to Naill and his assistant Adam for doing a very good job repairing our chimney at our home in East York, Toronto. They replaced the two flues and capped the chimney so no water or animals can get in. Although it was quite expensive for the amount of time it took them to complete the work, they were very thorough and tidied up completely, and I highly recommend Naill because of his swift response, knowledge and professionalism.

chimney rebuild, tuck pointing, cleaning brick at front of house

Niall is very courteous, professional and knowledgeable. He did an excellent job rebuilding my chimney and tuck pointing where needed. I am still in awe how he was able to clean the brick in front of house. I don't know how he was able to remove the black substance and concrete left by the water-proofing contractor. It must have taken hours. Last year when I had someone lay pavers in front of house I asked about removing this and was told it was impossible. When Niall was leaving he went over with me what was done and asked if I was happy with the work. I am indeed happy.

Expert Work, On Time, As Promised!

I did my homework and obtained 3 quotes; Nf was the least expensive but that's rarely the reason I select a contractor. From my first conversation with Niall, I felt I was in good hands. I received a quote, my concerns and questions were answered quickly and the work was done in the time frame promised. Niall took the time to bring some brick samples to ensure he had the right colour the day before the work was scheduled to be done. He arrived, the work was complete on time and it was done beautifully! Thanks to you and your team Niall!

Chimney rebuilt

We were getting our roof done and the roofer said our chimney was in bad shape and needed to be rebuilt. We asked for quotes and NF Masonry came and met with us personally and explained the scope of the job, cost, etc. Niall came on time the day of the work was to be done and I have to say we were thrilled with the job he did. He and crew were efficient and finished the job very quickly, cleaned up the area and left. Although we didn't go on the roof to see the job, our roofer said that whoever did it did an amazing job and he asked us to give him Niall's number to refer him to other customers who needed their chimney done. Thank you NF Masonry !!
