Foundation repair

As daunting as it is to find the right company to work on your home, it feels great to know that you have found the perfect one for your job. From my first contact with Murphy's Masonry, I just knew that I was dealing with a reliable, honest and professional team.

My foundation was in such bad shape that the only proper way to repair it was to form with lumber and pour new concrete to the area. Mason's Murphy did an excellent job within a couple of days and now I am confident that I won't have to worry about my foundation for many years to come.

Masonry

I would recommend Murphy’s Masonry. The owner gave me a quote and in several days the work was done. The two gentlemen who did the work were fabulous. They were very neat and cleaned up after the project was completed. It was worth having this company do the masonry. Thank you.

Chimney rebuild

I had a crumbling chimney in need of attention. Murphy’s were easy to deal with. Good communication. They turned up when scheduled, got the work done with no drama, and cleaned up after they left. Chimney looks great, with a good match to the existing brick.

enlarge a window and rebuild brick chimney in a victorian house 130 years old.

Chris was prompt, reliable and did a great job.

He enlarged a kitchen window to allow for a new opening 80 x 50. It was a double brick wall and he installed angle irons on both layers of the brick. He matched the brick to the existing brick colours and mortar.

He also removed a crumbling brick chimney to the roof and rebuilt it.

He cleaned up after the job and was a very friendly and trust worthy guy. Fully recommend.

Front Porch - New Concrete

Needed to have my front porch removed and lay new concrete. The price was consistent with the other quotes. Murphy's was accomodating as they were going to start after about 6 weeks. We had requested that they try to fit us in before and they actually managed to start the job about 2 weeks later. They did a great job overall. The quality looks good, we'll have to see how it holds up. Taryn was great in terms of communication. Very transparent, what was quoted is what was delivered. The guys doing the job were good too. Very professional and highly recommended.

Completely Reparging Inside Basement Walls

I received at least 7 - 8 quotes from $2,000 - $15,000 to have my 120 year old rubble foundation walls reparged. So confusing! I had a company hired for $8,000, when he stopped communicating. That's when I did in depth research to know what was required to do a good job and what that would cost. I learned new parging will not stick to paint, so removing the old painted parging was crucial. Also a rubble wall is very sandy, so the bolted wire mesh gives the new parging something to attach to securely. Many companies were just going to reparge over the existing parging that still stuck without installing wire mesh. I realized it was a pricier job to have the old cracked parging removed, cover all the walls with bolted on wire mesh for good adhesion of the 2 - 3 new parge coats. I also had the parge mix dyed with a white powder, to have light gray walls without ever having to deal with the paint eventually flaking due to the moisture in any basement. Ruairi and Taryn were always a pleasure to communicate with answering all my questions, promptly and honestly. Chris, Tristan and Patrick were fun to interact with and did wonderful work. They went above and beyond what I expected! They were detailed in covering the furnace and water heater, disconnected my washer, dryer and even the laundry tub to move and cover ensuring proper coverage on the walls behind those items. A long, drain pipe bolted to the wall was delicately rehung away from the wall and bolted back in place. Chris asked me to look everything over to tell him where I would like any touch ups. They installed a new dryer hose and returned twice to ensure the reconnected drain for the laundry tub no longer leaked. This company treats you like you're part of their caring family!

Heritage brick restoration

We worked with Murphy’s Masonry to 1) tuckpoint the front of our heritage home and 2) repair our brick staircase. Getting the project done was not as smooth as it could have been, but they came back multiple times to address the deficiencies and to make sure the work was done properly.
