Window Openings and Tuckpointing

Jim and crew gave us new through wall openings for our new larger front door, front window and new back patio door. They did everything while we were there...three kids...minimal dust and disturbance and a total pleasure to be around. Honest, hard working and professional. They matched the old bricks with new, installed new stone lintels, poured a concrete sill for patio door and cleaned up the drywall at the new openings so the window and doors crew just popped the new units right in. We ended up getting them to do tuckpointing on two facade since they had scaffolding up already.

stalled house project...reach restoration to the rescue

In the depths of despair following a messy break up with a general contractor over the holidays, I called up Jim to see if he could help restart a stalled house project. He readily agreed and I discovered previously unknown skills offered by Jim and his crew. He has done masonry work for me in the past but the current house was cedar and cement board clad. Jim and his crew set up a 30 ft scaffolding to correct the previous contractor's work and suggested solutions taking into account the performance of the entire building envelope. He brought in his preferred roofer to do some complicated sheet metal flashing work and in many ways acted like a general contractor. I appreciated his attention to detail and the versatility of his staff. In addition to exterior cladding in tongue and groove cedar and cement board and batten, he rough framed my rear deck, installed fence posts, fixed drywall, waterproofed roof penetrations and poured concrete for my sump pit. Well done guys!

Column rebuild

We have worked with Jim and Justin and team before. They rebuilt our chimney in 2016 and this time we had another challenge for them. We wanted to rebuild our brick column supporting the front porch canopy. As it required proper support we had no other names in mind than Jim and Justin from Reach Restoration. We called them up and they said they’ve done this many times and would ensure all structural aspects of the job are verified by a civil engineer. The job was done quickly and professionally.

Big Job Beautifully Done

Our house is constructed of cement block covered over with brick and we had two elements to the work - cut an 8.5' hole in the family room north wall to fit a three-panel door and enlarge a window to make a door in the office.

Jim, Justin and team did a fabulous job. Jim provided an excellent explanation of how the work was to proceed, updates as they went along, and advice when issues surfaced. They arrived on time, did the work as scheduled, and cleaned up at the end.

We are very happy with the result.

Thank you for your kind review. Understanding by viewing your yard that you were an excellent gardener and knowing the new door would create direct access from house to your garden made the installation more than just another project.
Best Regards
Jim and Crew

Restored facade and interior exposed brick of 1890's Victorian

Jim and team were truly unbelievable. The professionalism and quality of workmanship was unlike anything I have seen. Our house was painted a terrible brown colour and had areas that were almost completely deteriorated. Teamwork from Horizon Restoration (Blair) and Reach Restoration was unparalleled. Just take a look at the photo comparison. Jim was even able to match the original styling of the brick placement at the top. It was also a perfect colour match! People that live on the street cannot believe the change. The next door neighbour is especially happy that the houses are matching now :)

Tuckpointing, parging of foundation, replacing window sills

Jim and his team did a fantastic job restoring part of our semi-detached Victorian house, performing complete tuck pointing of one wall and replacing window sills, with remedial work elsewhere. Jim was very responsive throughout and extremely professional. Extra work was recommended and the communication around this was very clear. The clean-up was excellent. I would highly recommend Reach Restoration to anyone considering similar work.

Garage Retrofit

Jim and his team completed repairs to our detached garage in July 2017. The original structure is approximately 80 years old and had weathered significantly. An addition to the garage had also started to shift away from the main building. After a thorough review of the site and our budget, we agreed on a remedial scope of work. Reach Restoration executed the project as discussed and with exceptional communication throughout. I work with trades in my profession and would rate Jim as the best mason that I have met. His knowledge and interest in the subject are second to none. It was a true pleasure to work with him ...and we have already recommended Jim to friends and family.

Semi-Detached in Leslieville - Great Work

To echo the below review from BAR in Toronto, we were the other side of the semi-detached that Jim and his team did a few weeks ago. Jim was friendly, professional, and extremely knowledgeable about the work that we needed done. He and his team were quick, did very precise and detailed work and cleaned up perfectly. Jim even replaced some bricks and hand-painted them to ensure they blended in perfectly! Jim answered every question I had via email and text and put us at ease through the whole project. It looks great and we were so pleased to work with JIm - I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for expert brick service.

Leslieville semi detached

Jim and his team did a fantastic job on our leslieville semi. We had a lot of issues with our mortar/bricks and they did a fantastic job fixing that and some crumbling bricks as well as some missing bricks. They also replace the old window and door sills with new granite. Very nice. Highly recommend this company!!! Thanks Jim.
