indoor fireplace brickwork

Can't say enough great things about SMC Masonry .. Stephen and team were incredible. They quoted quickly on the work and insisted on an in-person assessment, during which time they gave me the piece of mind in knowing that we had the right materials, and passed along some great education on options for proceeding. Not only was the price exceptional, but they stayed on an additional day to really ensure the work was at it's best. They thoroughly cleaned the space, more than I would have expected and went the extra mile to help my family create a brilliant space. I'll be hiring this team for life and I won't even looks for quotes elsewhere. They are craftsman and care deeply about every detail of the work. Refreshing to see and encouraging that the world still has genuinely good people who care and are committed to more than cutting corners to increase profits. Again, can't say enough good things. True craftsman and good people!!

Chimney repairs

Overall, I was pleased with the work from Stephen and his crew. The work included knocking down the top ~10 rows of my chimney, and rebuilding it with replacement bricks as well as repairs to the flu liners and a new cap on top. Communication with Stephen was good for scheduling and planning, and he was informative in our discussions. The crew was prompt, the work was done quickly and clean-up was good as well. However, about a week after the project was completed, I inspected the work and already saw some cracks in the concrete cap they built. I informed Stephen and he came back to do repairs without hesitation, so that was good service. But by putting another layer of concrete over the top, I do still have some concerns on quality over the long term. I waited about 6 months before posting this review since I wanted to ensure the repairs are holding up, and it's looking good so far. I'll inspect it again in the spring... we'll see if it still holds up through a season of fireplace use and the associated heat/cold cycles. I'll post an updated review if I see any issues.

Thank you for your review. From time to time we do have issues with the concrete capping and this is associated with very warm temperatures that tend to dry materials quicker than they have the opportunity to cure. I know that Dan was on it immediately to take remedial action which I am certain will suffice. Please be assured that we stand by our work and any issues will always be taken care as soon as possible.

Rebuilt chimney

My chimney was starting to crumble above the roof line. Stephen came out right away to look at it and let me know it would have to be rebuilt from the roof up. After Stephen found a matching brick we scheduled to have him do the job. Stephen and crew arrived as scheduled and in one day, removed the old chimney and put up the new chimney. Very professional to deal with, did great work at a reasonable price. I would not hesitate to recommend Stephen if you need brickwork done.

Thank you so much for your kind review. As you are aware it was a great challenge to find brick to match your home. We did eventually manage to do so. The guys were very happy with the end result.

Chimney Repair/Rebuild

I contacted SMC Masonry in October, after being let down by another masonry contractor. Stephen responded immediately and came to look at the job. It was late in the season, but he was able to match the brick and scheduled the job for November 20. Stephen and two of his employees arrived as scheduled and proceeded to do the required work. The job was completed in one day. The crew cleaned up completely when done. The workmanship was excellent and I am very happy with the finished product.

Chimney Rebuild

From outset to completion, communication was prompt, clear and consistent without any ambiguity or delays. Stephen assessed the damage to our existing chimney, and explained in a way that was easy to understand what the situation was and what the rebuild would involve including timeframes, materials and labour. The quote was fair and reasonable and not inflated like some other companies were. Stephen was able to source the same brick for the complete rebuild of the chimney. Stephen's team worked quickly, efficiently, and seem to have left our property cleaner than they found it. An absolute pleasure to work with.

Chimney Repair

Needed chimney bricks repaired and top redone. Stephen and his crew were very knowledgeable and explained what needed to be done in detail. They arrived when they said they would and had repairs completed when promised. They cleaned up the whole site when done.
We felt very comfortable with them and their work. Stephen even pointed out some areas of the roof that need to be looked at and recommended adding downspout for better drainage on roof. We appreciated his eye to detail. Wish he did roof repairs too. Thank you Stephen and team!
