Porch and Steps

Otto and his team did amazing work fixing a covered porch and stairs. The porch was above a cold storage and was leaking so they covered the porch with a waterproof membrane and laid stone on top. They also poured new concrete for steps and covered the steps with the same stone. They were communicative, reliable and the quality of the work was fantastic. The final cost was consistent with the original estimate. I would absolutely work with them again and would highly recommend.

Re Pointing and Grading

The time between calling for an estimate and having workers on site was about a month. The works were fast and efficient.
Everything was completed in a timely and professional manner as per the estimate.

Time will be the ultimate test but right now all parts of the construction/repair look great.

Porch, stairs and walkway repair

My experience with Otto's Masonry has been positive, from beginning to end. A lot of the mortar had fallen out of my mom's stone porch, and some of the stones were coming away, especially the ones holding the railing. I also had them cut back and reface the flagstone walkway that jutted into the driveway. The mason, Mario, was very experienced and kind, and I was really happy with how the job turned out. The porch, stairs and walkway feel safe now.

New concrete steps!

The concrete steps for our 1981 built house had started crumbling, and we needed a major fix. Otto provided a competitive quote. The project was much more involved than we had imagined and we were impressed with the team's approach and obvious expertise. At one point there was a (several day) rain delay due to the weather and they kindly installed wooden treads to out existing steps to make them safe while we waited  for the weather to improve. Throughout the work, which took almost 5 days, the team was pleasant and happily responded to any of our questions. Otto operates with integrity and stands behind the company's work.  We would highly recommend.

Tuckpointing and parging

I hired Otto's Masonry to help repair a damaged brick wall on my old house in downtown. They were extremely responsive and professional from the onset, and the work was top quality. Additionally, the team was friendly and did a fantastic job cleaning up each day. Highly recommend.

Resurfaced front porch and steps

We got to see Otto's Masonry's work first hand because our next door neighbour hired them for the exact same style job. After seeing the finished result, we were so impressed with the quality of their work that we hired them the next day for a similar job. In a nutshell, they removed the old wrought iron railings and then cut and lay Banas coping and flagstone over the existing cement porch and steps. The work by the crew was first rate in terms of craftsmanship as well as being aesthetically pleasing in the design and layout of the flagstone.
They were neat, clean and did a very professional job. I would not hesitate to hire them again for any future stone projects.

Excellent work by a professional company

I had my front porch repaved and Ottos Masonry did a fantastic job. Otto, Jermaine and Alan were knowledgeable, easy to work with and excellent masons. They were a pleasure to deal with as was John and Marie-Jo. I would highly recommended them. I have received many compliments on my porch!

Chimney rebuild, waterproofing

I have gone to Otto twice in the past year for 2 different masonry and water proofing jobs. The stone masons were respectful, worked hard, put in long days, and cleaned up their area well. The workmanship is amazing. Highly recommend!
