The brick on our 130-year-old home needed to be repointed and repaired in places. I called Mario after speaking with a prominent contractor who specializes in restoring Victorian homes in Cabbagetown, as well as reading reviews of his work (and a recommendation) by the Cabbagetown Preservation Society. We were told he was the best in the city and a true artist. He proved that with the incredible work on our house. Inside of a week, our entire front face of our house was brought back to life - replacing individual bricks that were cracked or beyond repair, refinishing (and colour-matching) bricks that were crumbling, all while carefully colour-matching the mortar to match the existing, original mix. He and his partner are meticulous artists and the house now has a time-kissed look. Mario showed up exactly when he said he would and was incredibly clean and conscientious of our plants/gardens. They even washed the windows on the front of our house when the job was complete. If you're looking for a cheap and quick patch job, Invisible is not the company for you. If you care about restoring and preserving the look of your house for generations to come, do yourself a favour and speak to Mario. A true artist, deserving of a very sincere 10 rating. Highly recommended!
P.S. We reviewed ratings on Homestars before signing the contract with Invisible. The one (lone!) negative rating here was obviously an outlier, and not at all a factor in our thinking. You can't please cranks - and from the long list of positive reviews, and now our own experience, we can't recommend Invisible Tuckpointing Ltd. highly enough.

Stefan and Alex,
You are the quintessential 'Invisible Tuckpointng' customers.
You knew exactly what you wanted: a company that would match the existing bricks and mortar exactly.
When you searched the web and couldn't find that company, you decided to walk through city neighborhoods until you found it!
I'm glad we connected. Sandy and I loved you guys (and also the cat! :-)
