Concrete front steps

I called Steve in the spring to replace our crumbling front steps. Once the weather improved and he was able to demolish the old steps, the construction of the form and pouring of the concrete went very quickly. Now it's July and we have very nice-looking, permanent steps that we are happy with.

Spalding and flaking bricks

I needed to replace some spalding and flaking bricks and some brick window sills with precast concrete as they don't deteriorate like brick.
Steve did an excellent job. It is obvious he has many years of experience in the area of masonry. He can also provide good recommendations on how to proceed. He is also reliable. If you hire Steve you will not regret it.

Garage Brick Replacement & Cement Repair

We have a patio on top of our garage that caused quite a bit of problems over the years. Water would go into our garage and get trapped between the drywall and brick layer. Essentially over time, brick just started to crumble. Due to the moisture, it created a provide ground for a bunch of carpenter ants to create their colonies. We got rid of the ants last year by removing all the drywall.

Long story short, Steve and Taylor came repair all the damaged bricks. As he started pulling the bricks down, he noticed that the joist (part of the frame) was completed rotten due to moisture and ants building their colonies. He was able to help replace the rotten joist, find the source of the leak and replace all the crumble bricks! Throughout the process, he kept in touch letting us know what's going on.

Additionally, we've looked at 5 different masonry on Homestars. He's the only one that provided a reasonable quote. I would definitely recommend him to all my friends.

Thanks Steve. Really appreciate the work.

No-Showed Twice (with No Explanation) for Small Job

Arranged to be home (at the date and time requested by Mason Restoration) for a small job on our front steps, but they never showed up and never gave an explanation. After we rescheduled and they still failed to show up I asked if they weren't interested or if something had come up, but never heard back from anyone. Weirdly unprofessional - maybe they just blow off small jobs? Very disappointing.

Bricking in a window in an older Semi-Detached House

They did great job of matching the older bricks and properly framing the the wall. Very clean work. Arrived on time and did as expected. Very satisfied with the work overall.

Brick Damage

I had very damaged brick in the back of my townhouse, I had many contractors come and turn the job down as there was no direct access to the back yard. The obstacle was that they would have to come across two backyards to get to mine in order to complete the job. Steve came looked at the job looked at the obstacle that was a head of him and agreed to do the job within a reasonable time frame. It was a challenging job as there was no direct access to my home and the height of the townhome was an issue too as that required more equipment that they had to rally over two fences. My neighbors were so kind in allowing them to use their backyard as a path for Steve and his workers they too played a huge part in this accomplishment.

Brick and parging repair

Brick column at front of house beside garage door was damaged when a delivery car crashed into it. Resulted in 6 cracked bricks, damage to the mortar, trim caulking and garage door frame and the parging. Due to the age of the house Steve was unable to match color of new bricks purchased so instead he removed the same number of bricks from an inconspicuous area of the house replacing them with the new bricks and then replaced the damaged bricks that now matched the front area. Job was done professionally and Steve and his crew were a pleasure to deal with.

Chimney and Foundation work

This is the second time I have used Steve's company. He and his team are a pleasure to work with.
Their work is solid and meticulous. They do not rush or skimp, they make sure it's not only fixed but also looks great. Very fine workmanship.
Steve gives you a quote and that is the amount you will pay.
Will definitely use them again.
You guys rock.
Thank you
