So happy!

Our house was badly in need of a new front landing and a step to the side door. A&A Masonry came to the rescue. We consulted with Maryanna and she found our preferred interlock, even though it was late in the season. I received an email a day prior to the expected installation. The date had to be changed due to inclement weather but Justin always responded quickly to queries and kept us posted as to the eventual installation date. Bill and Thomas arrived when they said they would. They were professional, accommodating and very pleasant to work with. We had a discussion about whether to keep part of the old edging or replace it and Bill was ready to hop in his truck and get the necessary pieces, if we chose to go with all new curbs. In the end, we kept some of the old curbs but I really appreciated Bill's willingness to step up, if need be. The side step was a huge, solid, heavy piece of slate and I was impressed how the guys worked out a way to move it into place. It was also reassuring how well Bill and Thomas worked together, there was never a discouraging word between them. We are really pleased with the results, I would unreservedly recommend A&A Masonry and call on them for any other masonry work. Thanks, guys!

I will be passing along your praise to Maryanna, Bill and Thomas...they Love hearing feedback like this! The guys do work well together and are very crafty when it comes to having to figure out how to move some big heavy objects!

Best regards,

Driveway Catch Basin Rebuild

I received a fair quote from Hayden to rebuild a catch basin at the bottom of my sloping driveway. He was prompt in responding and managed to squeeze in this job before the season ended (November). Other contractors initially contacted refused to take the work, so i was happy they were able to accommodate my needs to rebuild the basin before winter. I dealt with Domenic who completed the work over a 6 day period. Domenic was not only extremely skilled and experienced in completing the work but was also accommodating and patient in walking me through the work, explaining the approach and discussing various options and answering question. He took his time and did not cut any corners. It was the equivalent of taking a Master Class in masonry (for which i learned a hell of a lot over the course of 6 days). He was polite, professional and I would not hesitate recommending him to anyone needing brick or masonry work. End result, the rebuild is far superior than what was done by the previous contractor. This basin is rock solid, which means i will probably not see him again! Thanks Domenic and Hayden for the excellent work and experience!

I am beyond happy!!!

I can’t recommend Jonathan enough! He was so amazing he fixed a terrible job I had before on the purging my house and he cleaned up all the bricks. he noticed other cracks in my house that needed fixing. I had him do so much work on my house and he went above and beyond on everything. If I ever need anything else I’m only coming to him. If you need someone you can trust to fix the foundation of your house or the bricks on your house he is totally that guy to do it. It would give him 20 out of 10 if I could. You won’t be disappointed.

Foundation repair and Brick Tuck Pointing

I went onto the HomeStars website and requested work to be done on my 100 year old Semi-detached home. Within hours, I received a few emails and filled out my contact info with them. Haizel from A&A Masonry called and we spoke about the details of my request for a masonry company. She understood all the terms (need to put in grout, parge the bottom of house...) that I was saying and set up an appointment.

Haizel Gura came to my home and talked to my husband regarding the scope of work (I had an appointment suddenly come up). She gave my husband her business card and said that if I had any questions, she would come back to discuss them with me.

Haizel is a wonderful person to work with. She took pictures of the brick work and foundation, explained where repairs were needed and gave me a verbal quote right away (I needed info for my mortgage lender). Once in the office, a written quote was sent by email and I reviewed and signed.

Joe from A&A called to set up a work schedule. Apparently, quite a few people are renovation their homes but he was able to fit us in - YAH!!!

Tara and Kurt came on a nice sunny day and started work. My home is 2-story and very old, plus they had to replace most if not all the mortar between the bricks and not just putting cement over the cracks in our foundation but found that it needed repair as well so we had to increase the scope of the work and I authorized the increase in costs. The next day it rained but they came out anyway hoping that it would let up. Now THAT'S dedication to your craft. It didn't stop but they were hard a work the next few days in the cold and windy weather but they finished and did an excellent job of matching the existing mortar (what was left of it) and cleaned up each day so that somebody would not get hurt. AND it came with a 5 year warranty on the brickwork.

I highly recommend A&A Masonry for any concrete or masonry work. It was a good experience all around from the HomeStars request to the end of the work.

Kudos to the very nice people that work at A&A Masonry.

Garage Floor Repair

After being unsuccessful for several months in finding someone that could and would help us with our garage floor repair, we found A&A. We had a pretty tight timeline and they were able to get the work done. They were very responsive...followed up with us before, during and after the job to make sure that everything was done to our satisfaction. Everyone involved from Dominic who did the work and Haizel who helped get the job co-ordinated were a pleasure to deal with. Can't say enough great things about the quality of Dominic's work...he did a fantastic job and we are very happy with the overall result.

Concrete Steps Repair

Needed to remove and replace concrete steps in front of house. Company was very responsive during the quoting process. When it came time to do the work, Dom did a great job in explaining what will be done, answered all my questions and did what he said he would. Very happy with the results. Can't complain about anything.

FRONT STEP INSTALL

Several years ago, I hired A & A to re-do my front step(s) with stone (tile) and a large bottom landing. The job looked fantastic and was completed without any issues. Unfortunately, the area I live in has a high water table, and the ground really freezes up and expands- usually in February. As a result of the freezing, the bottom risers on the bottom stair(s) fall off, almost every spring. This is where A & A blows every company out of the water when it comes to customer service. Each and every year since the install and/or the problems with the risers started, they have re-attended my address and re-installed the risers without ever making the comment," Your warranty has expired." I have never been charged for any service and/or product replacement!!!!! That is a customer service standard that I have yet to see anywhere- especially in the trades. This summer they fixed the bottom risers again, and the job was super clear looking. Plus, they may have solved the problem this time around. In addition, because their strong customer service commitment and work ethic, I hired them to fix a retaining wall in my backyard, which consisted of armour stone. Their workers did a fantastic job. The standards are very high.

I highly recommend A & A !!!!!

Excellent Chimney

We needed to have our existing chimney replaced and we found A&A on Home stars. They did an excellent job replacing the chimney and we receive many compliments on it. We also had them do tuck pointing and repair the parging over the stone at the base of our house. I became discoloured and they came back and fixed it with no problems. Much appreciated.

Porch Concrete Repair

We had a porch done by Patterned Concrete over 15 years ago, topped with natural stone. The natural stone has been repaired once before but after 3 years needed further repairs and work plus some additional work around the porch area. From Hayden who came out to do the assessment to Joe who coordinated and Tara who came to do the initial work A&A Masonry was outstanding - professional and high quality work. We had minor incident after the work was done and after a call to Joe, Jon came by to do the repair and just did an awesome job - responding quickly and taking care of things. Excellent work and a great team that stands behind what they do. Thank you Joe, Tara and Jon!
