Foundation re-parging, Repair concrete corner, Repair brick mortar joints, Re-caulking around the house
I contacted Three Little Pigs to assess and repair the concrete corner of my foundation, re-parge the foundation wall with a much more solid/stronger finish than what the builder originally provided (which had crumbled/broke off), as well as to repair several severely cracked mortar brick joints (tuck-pointing) around the house. I also had them re-caulk all my windows, doors, and brick-flashing.
After emailing some photos and description of my issue, David came out the next day to assess my situation in person. He was friendly and extremely knowledgeable, educating me on the differences between the more stringent provincial building codes versus the lesser GTA codes, which had caused the problems my house had. He was able to advise and recommend long-lasting solutions (drawing from the differences in standards), and did not recommend things that weren't necessary. David was also very patient in answering my numerous questions.
Chris who performed the masonry work was very professional, friendly, and skilled. His finished work is amazing, as he paid attention to small details (color matching for tuck pointing, making sure not to miss any areas that could be a concern, grinding hard to get areas of the foundation for parging, etc.). We had lots of different spots where the mortar between the brick had cracked, and he did not rush or skip any of them. He also put up scaffolding to access the 2nd and 3rd floor patio/balcony, rather than going through the house, in order to keep it clean for us, which we really appreciated!
From start to finish the whole process was very stress free with constant communication throughout from Barbara, David, and Rob (including late in the evening and the weekend!). Chris and other crew came everyday to work on the house, and the company made sure I was happy with everything before "finishing" the job. The work was done efficiently (a few days) and at a very high quality (very big difference from what the builder provided). The Three Little Pigs is a real masonry company with real masonry experience and knowledge, which really show in both their recommendations and workmanship. They also stand behind their work, and provided me with a 5 year warranty on the parge and 10 year on the repaired foundation corner and tuck pointing work, which gives me additional peace of mind! If you want peace of mind that things are done properly and strong, I would highly recommend TLP. Thanks to the entire TLP team!
