Amazing work. Great service. Definitely recommend.

The brick column supporting the front porch of my house was on a lean when I bought the house, with the wood beam on the opposite lean supporting the porch roof. It was pretty precarious, to say the least.

I hired StraightUp Masonry to dig out the column, put in a footer and rebuild it to match the original bricking. They also installed 2 limestone slabs and new cedar posts on both columns. Tony and his crew were absolutely amazing. Very courteous, cleaned up everything afterward, and even repointed some of the brickwork above my front door. Definitely recommend these guys.

Brick repair

For some time, every time we had a heavy rain, I would find wap vvter in my basement, but not on the floor. We spent a lot of time trying to figure out where the water was coming from. We have also had some brick damage to the south side of our house, but this winter the damage looked to be severe. We heard about Straight Up Masonry through a few recommendations on FaceBook and called for an estimate. The contractor came to our house within a couple of days and explained exactly what needed to be done and also that these repairs would stop the mysterious water in the house. We received an estimate the next day, and within the next 10 days, the workmen arrived and the job was done in less than a day. The work looks great and all the people we dealt with from the office to the jobsite were friendly, knowledgable and professional. I would recommend these folks to anyone needing this kind of repair.

Tuck pointing

Estimate sent with highlighted photos of repair areas being quoted. Work done ahead of schedule. Great crew. Good natured about my dog eating part of a crew member's lunch :)

Chimney removal

We were very happy with our recent experience working with Straight Up Masonry. We needed to have an old chimney removed that ran through the middle of our house within the walls. Tony and his team were able to work with the other contractors we were using to accomodate us at the time we needed the work done. They were very efficient and were careful not to damage any of the contents of our house. The team members were all pleasent to have around and they carefully cleaned up after themselves and left the work area safe and clean for our young children to be around. We will definitely have them back again for any other masonry jobs we have. They were true to their quote (which was very reasonable) and the service was excellent.

Masonry repair

We were working with time pressure and a difficult family situation involving an elderly relative. Tony and Crystal and their team worked patiently with us through the process and were very responsive and accommodating. They were able to work independently and meticulously. They replaced a number of sills, evaluated for any structural issues and repaired several areas of crumbling brick and mortar. They worked hard to match the brick which is no longer available and took care in determining the mortar colour. Given the questions around structure there was ample opportunity for them to take advantage of the situation but they were very honest and gave the all clear with no additional costs. I would recommend this team in a heartbeat.

New foundation

Straight up Masonry built a new foundation for a basement entrance for us. The work was completed on time with the highest level of workmanship and professionalism. The workers were on time and cleaned up everything wgen their work was done. Cant say enough good things about Tony and his crew. Highly recommended.

Masonary

Straight up masonary is exactly like there name. They came when they said they were going to come. They did what they said they were going to do. Let alone that the work was amazing. As a contractor it is hard to find company’s to work with as easy as straight up masonary is. Will recommend them to anyone and will use them in my own business for many years to come!

Masonry work

Tony and Crystal were great to work with. Tony came out quickly to do an assessment and was able to tell right away what the problem was with the crumbling bricks at the back of our house.
The crew that came to the house was very professional and on time and explained thoroughly what the problems were once they opened up the back of the house.
The work didn't go over the estimate and they did a great job.
