Basement repair

Our “new” old house had a basement that was not usable for storage. It had mud floors and walls in some areas. We asked Otto’s Masonry to come and build brick walls on two sides of the basement and fill in some holes in the floor. The crew was available earlier than expected and worked hard to get the basement cleaner and repaired to a usable state. They worked very quickly and even came back on Saturday. The crew was very pleasant to have around and they were all very hardworking. I would definitely recommend them to a friend. I am so happy with the results of the job!

Tuckpointing and concrete “stone” repair

Otto’s masonry was recommended by a friend for tuckpointing. We were pleased with the quality of the work and found the cost to be reasonable given the incredible amount of labour that went into the job. Eckhard was diligent, hard working, kind, trustworthy and did a wonderful job on our “concrete/stone” repair and tuckpointing. High quality work for an affordable price.

concrete work

The team from Otto's Masonry was led by Jon Baxter. The entire team was professional, considerate and hard working. From the moment I contacted Otto's Masonry they were quick to come out and evaluate my job. They subsequently sent us a detailed and honest outline of the scope of work and the cost. They scheduled the job and completed it in a timely manner. There was transparency and communication throughout the job. The work they did is magnificent! I am beyond happy with the outcome. We will be contacting them again for tuck pointing and will not even bother to look at other companies as I trust them to do the work they outline. I cannot say enough about the integrity and quality of workmanship. Thanks to Jon, Taryn and all the crew members who worked on our project.

Amazing Work - Reliable, Reasonable and Really nice to work with

Our original GC (Robert Comelli) did such as horrible job of our concrete - multiple (3 or more) full thickness cracks within MONTHS of pouring. It was NOT done to code. Looked horrible also.

We called Otto's to replace it. They did an amazing job. They showed up on time, did a very thorough job, finished on time. They even corrected some of the many mistakes made by our GC which were not originally contracted for.

Brick repair and masonry

Otto's Masonry did some brick repairs and tuckpointing for us. They were prompt, professional and courteous, and easy to work with. They came highly recommended, and we're happy to recommend them as well.

General tuck pointing

We have an old East York home that is showing it's age. We contracted Otto's and they were a pleasure to work with from the start. Getting the quote was easy and the person who did the job was on time, professional and very friendly. He consulted us throughout the work he was doing and ensured that we were happy before he left. I would recommend Otto's.

Chimney repair

I made the mistake of letting a crew of misfits driving around in a pickup fixing chimneys remove the loose bricks on my chimney and parge it (which apparently is illegal). Consequently each passing winter water got in, froze, expanded and loosened more brick to the point where chunks were falling on my gas fireplace during windy days in spring.

Otto's crew did the following:
- Break down 14 courses of brick
- Rebuild chimney matching bricks and mortar as close as possible
to the original
- Install a new chimney cap and new flues
- Reinstall original metal cages

They worked quietly, efficiently and were done in less than two days.
My chimney looks amazing and will no doubt restore some value to my house. I would recommend these guys for good, prompt communication and getting the job done right.

Repair of stone wall

I contracted Otto’s to repair some major cracks and flaws in a stone retaining wall on my property. Of four contractors contacted they were the only ones who responded with an estimate. Their work was prompt, very professional and well within estimate. We are very pleased.
