parging at side of house

The brick around the side of our house needed some love. They parged and put in a curb at the walkway along the bottom to keep the water away. They came when they said they would and finished in a day. A+

Carport re-build

The two brick walls of our carport were crumbling and needed to be rebuild. Finding the right contractor was a challenge, some of them were very vague in what they were going to do, some proposed a fix that would not last. Tony from Straight Up Masonry took pictures of the carport and two days later sent us a detailed description of the work to be done and an estimate of the cost. It gave us much confidence to proceed with the job. Digging up the old walls was tough since they could not use heavy equipment. The people in his crew were very professional and dedicated and completed the work in a timely manner and within the budget. The masonry work was top notch and the site was restored and cleaned up immediately thereafter. Billing was done in stages as the work progressed. We were so pleased with the work done that we contracted his company again to install new limestone window sills.

Brick porch pillar replacement

I needed a brick porch pillar to be replaced since the angel stone was flaking off and the bricks were starting to flake. Straight Up Masonry responded with a quote and the final price I paid was the same - so no surprises. The work was done quickly and all the mess was cleaned up when they were finished. They did a great job and I'd hire them again for any masonry work.

Window Sills

Tony and Crystal are the reason I choose this company. From the very beginning they were both ready to answer any and all questions. Gave a very reasonable quote and completed the work exactly as stated. The crew was very professional and made sure all 'garbage' was removed before they left. Would not hesitate to recommend Tony and his crew for any masonry work that you would need. 10+.

Chimney removal

I needed an old chimney removed, and hired Straight Up Masonry to do the work. I found them pleasant and professional to deal with, they arrived on schedule and the chimney was down in no time flat. Granted, this project didn't involve building anything, but I was left with a favourable impression and would consider them again in a heartbeat.

New chimney

I needed a new chimney and obtained a number of quotes. This company was the most competitively priced. They came on the scheduled day, replaced the chimney amd left the property tidy. I had a number of follow-up questions about the quote which were answered promptly. Payment was easy and receipts were provided. It was hassle-free. The new chimney looks great. I’d recommend them.

Partial Chimney Rebuild & Tucking

I hired Straight Up Masonry to remove and replace the chimney cap, to rebuild the top 2 rows of the chimney and complete some pointing around my home. I called other companies prior to contacting Straight Up Masonry but none were willing to provide me with an estimate, as in their words, "my job was too small". Straight Up Masonry came out to my home then provided me with a written and detailed estimate. My job was completed shortly thereafter efficiently, ahead of schedule but more important in a workmanlike manner.
