Chimney repair/replacement

Stephen's crew was fantastic and did an excellent job. My tenant is a contractor and confirmed this after the job was done. Stephen's crew left the property spotless despite the fact the old chimney was taken down creating quite the mess, and a new one installed. The neighbors were impressed as well when they spotted a worker taking off his shirt to wipe something down.
Stephen has been in business for over 40 years and his work is impressive and so is his communication and responsiveness. You will not be sorry to have chosen him. Excellent value for quality work.

Chimney repair

I had extensive spalling of bricks on top part of the chimney. Stephen from SMC Masonry visited for inspection and estimates and provided me with details as to what may have caused this and also suggested to rebuild the top section of the chimney.
His team did efficient job to complete in one day, and have also made a ramp on top of the cement slab to ensure the water runs away from the chimney as oppose to stay on top to prevent future damages.
Thank you so much for your professionalism and getting job done efficiently

Masonary Repairs

I was impressed with Steve, the owner of SMC-Masonary from my very first telephone call to him. This was followed up with an onsite visit to our home and follow up calls during and after the repointing of our home was completed. The whole process was completed within 8 days! His workers did a fine job and even did more repairs than our contract outlined. There was no doubt that customer satisfaction and trying to meet the high expecations of Steve were foremost in the minds of the workers. Offering a very competitive price and doing high quality work allows me highly recommend this company.

Chimney Rebuild

We bought a 30 yr old home and both Chimneys had extensive wear and water damage. Stephen and his brother came in, matched the brick and rebuilt them. They look brand new! They are extremely knowledgeable and hardworking. Thanks very much to Stephen and his great team!

Chimney Repair

We found SMC Masonry through Home Star. Stephan offered us a free inspection and quoted for the work during his first visit. He took the pictures and explained everything, needs to be done to fix the Chimeny.

On the agreed day, he showed up with four guys. They did an excellent job and fixed the Chimney. They also replaced the broken brick wall at the back of the house, which was not within the scope of work. Stephen also provides us some tips on how to insulate our basement.

I have one suggestion for them. In the old Chimney construction, few black bricks were used for shade, which they did not use during replacement. You can see in the picture, the bricks which they replaced are all red.

We strongly recommend SMC Masonry for any brick-related work.

Thank you for taking the time to write this review. When matching old bricks it is not always possible to get everything exactly the same. It was a pleasure to help you with your project and the little extra wall, well we did not feel comfortable leaving that for you and as we were already there we thought it just needed to be done.

Tear down the damaged chimney and rebuild

Before actually working on the chimney, they did shop around to look for the appropriate bricks for our chimney.
The work was done by four people, very professional and fast. Everything was cleaned and back to normal by mid afternoon. We are extremely happy with their service.

Chimney flu liner replacement

I had noticed a piece of the orange flu liner from our chimney had fallen off and landed on our deck. Originally I thought maybe the flu liner could be patched. After calling SMC Masonry, Stephen came by and explained what the problem was and what needed to be done to fix it. Him and his team showed up when he said they would and the job was completed in about 6 hours. Stephen took pictures of the before and after and I then realized the problem was much worse than I had thought. I am happy with the result.
