Brick replacement and tuck pointing

We hired Daniel’s firm to repair and replace spalling bricks and decaying mortar in the north facing wall of our 108 year old home. Daniel and his team did a superb job. The workmanship and effort that they put into the project is quite evident and we are very pleased with the outcome. The work was completed efficiently and they thoroughly cleaned up the job site together with our neighbours’ property after the work was done. Throughout Daniel provided professional and courteous service and attention to detail as well as a follow up email several weeks after completion to ensure all was well with the work. We would certainly recommend the Stone Porch for any brick and masonry work.

Front Porch rebuild

Daniel McCaffery of the Stone Porch has done a great job with our front porch. Daniel and his team worked long hours, diligently, to complete the work. Daniel explained all elements of the job and suggested some excellent finishing ideas that we incorporated into the final result. The team is knowledgeable , polite and on time. I would recommend Daniel and his team 100 %.

Hi Bill. Thank you for reviewing our work. I am glad you liked the porch rebuild, and also the carpentry work that our associates at Duncan's Contracting did as well.

Chimney etc.

We recently had Daniel (owner of The Stone Porch) and his crew complete three simultaneous brickwork projects on our house in the Beaches: 1) the replacement of a 95-year-old chimney down to the roof line; 2) the capping off of an old, unused chimney; and 3) the enlargement of a window frame (involving the intricate task of removing and replacing bricks without cutting any edges). The end result was as close to ideal as one could want. It was apparent from the outset that Daniel has a deep connection to his craft. He's smart and thoughtful, and is able to explain the work process clearly to the client. The work order was clear and detailed and there were no surprises. We highly recommend The Stone Porch.

Thank you so much for the kind review. You have a beautiful Beaches home and we were very happy to fix up your chimneys and open the window rough-in.

So pleased with my new porch!

My porch was in bad shape, and I contacted a number of companies to repair or replace it. Daniel from The Stone Porch impressed me right away with his knowledge and suggestions. His pricing was very reasonable, especially since the scope of work he proposed was more in depth than other companies. We ended up going with The Stone Porch, and couldn't be more pleased with the results. The porch looks amazing, and is extremely sturdy. It was a real pleasure working with Daniel and his team and I highly recommend them.

Hi Joe. Thanks for giving us a positive review, and also for participating so much in the aesthetic decisions (I suppose that was more Melinda's role though). I would not have suggested the stone that you ultimately picked, so it is great that you visited the yard and made a thorough examination of what stone was on offer. The end result surprised me. You have a very unique finish with the Banas Imperial Black, and I am delighted that you like it so much.

Tuck work + foundation parging for my home

The Stone Porch did a terrific job of making my old stained brick look great again - and giving my deteriorating 100-year od foundation a better, weather-proof facing! They were timely, polite, communicative, respectful of my space and my neighbours. Thankyou, Daniel. I would recommend and/or have you back for sure. -- C

It was great working with you, C. I am glad we were able to identify all of the troubled spots and fight back the deterioration from water ingress. We would be happy to work on your home again.

Foundation wall restoration & more

Daniel and his team completed a few projects at my house in the Beaches, including restoration of 100 year old foundation walls. Communication was very clear, his pricing was very fair and the quality of work was even better than expected. I would recommend Daniel/Stone Porch without hesitation and i am already making plans to work with him on another project.

Thank you so much for having us on. There were a lot of projects there: foundation wall repair (interior and exterior), the window well, the blockwork, the cutout, the replacement of the floor. The crew and I were very happy to complete each project and then be asked to do another. You paid us a high compliment and we would be happy to return for future projects. We really appreciate the review.

New walkway

After meeting with Daniel we knew he was the guy that would fix our terrible walkway. It wasn’t graded right and we always had big puddles of water at the bottom of the steps, plus it was an eyesore! Daniel and his army of guys came in and two days later we have a new walkway that is beautiful! His communication was great, and he gave us a very detailed quote so we knew exactly how much to expect in the end. Would definitely recommend!

We really appreciate the review. There was a very narrow window within which the grading could work. I am very glad it worked out and that you and your neighbours enjoyed the final product.

Brick veneer on interior wall

Daniel and Justin did an awesome job with our interior brick work. They affixed the brick tiles and did all the grouting to make our HVAC returns look like an actual chimney! The guys were very professional and respectful of our space - would definitely recommend!

Thank you so much, Naumi and Laura, for sharing a positive experience. We enjoyed working on your house, and we think your choice of material was bang-on given the existing exposed brick in your kitchen. Thank you also for the delicious coffees.

New chimney, walkways, back patio

I have the highest praise for Danial mc caffery masionary. He made my home look a thousand times better. He built a new chimney, beautiful back patio, beautiful new walkway, also did front of house , my original walkway was over 50 years old. It was very thick & uneven. Daniel worked so hard removing it & regrading so I wouldn't need a side step he also repaired the stone work where I had the new backwater valve installed. He did a perfect job of matching the stones , you would never guess it had been disturbed. I am so happy with all the work Daniel did for me . If you want the best it's Daniel Irene Tonks Scarberough

Thank you for the positive review, Irene. We were very glad to remove that unnecessary step from the side walkway, and we are so happy that you like your chimney and your new landscaping. It was very nice working on your home.
