Stone Patio

Two years ago Mace Masonry completed a front step and walkway project with which we were very pleased. Recently, Carl and his crew completed a second project involving removal of an old asphalt pad and installation of a larger stone patio. Carl developed a very pleasing design. Again, the crew was courteous and punctual; due to approaching unstable weather the work was completed quickly, short of the estimated time in a professional and competent manner followed by excellent cleanup. We have no hesitation in highly recommending Mace Masonry.

Chimney replacement

Bricks were crumbling just below the chimney and I put out a call for a number of estimates from different companies. I sent photos of the damage to these companies, but Carl came to see the damage for himself without bothering me and put in a detailed estimate. It was higher than I was expecting, but I accepted it because he explained how he was not just repairing the damage but preventing future damage. I delayed the work when my neighbour had someone working in the general vicinity and when the area was clear Carl sent over three guys to try to complete the work in a single day, minimizing the disturbance to my neighbour. Not only did they finish in good time, they did a superb cleanup of the ground below the chimney.

Chimney repair and rebuild

Carl and his crew rebuilt the brick chimney on our older house. Carl was easy to communicate with right from the beginning of the project and he and his crew were very capable and professional.

Exterior masonry work

Mace arrived and reviewed the situation, made a recommendation for the repair along with advice on how to make further repairs that was more economical than my initial consideration. They came on the appointed day, and got the job completed in the day. Much better than I ever expected for the project. We are delighted with their work and would absolutely recommend them.

Porch repairs

Carl and his crew did an excellent job and took their time to explain what was being done. We had the porch rebuild six years ago and that company did a terrible job but it was only in the last year we realise how bad the original job was. After Carl completed the job we had more questions/concerns and he came back twice to our house to resolve our questions/concerns. Would highly recommend this company. Thx Carl

Chimney partial rebuild

Carl and team did a great job of my partial chimney rebuild, despite the very challenging access above our sunroom. Courteous, timely, and great looking work. I feel very confident in the workmanship. Thanks Carl.

Carl Mace is a true craftsman

We had our basement waterproofed last year, and while that company did a good job, the one thing they would not do was to repair the portion of our driveway that they dug up beside our house. After speaking to a number of individuals and companies, we felt most confident hiring Carl. He understands not only how to pour concrete, but all of the underlying issues and concerns that come with having a driveway in an older section of Toronto. He was very careful to grade the slope away from both our house and our neighbour’s, as well as both of our driveways. He was always patient, no matter how many questions we asked. And he was open to suggestions on aesthetics. There was one disappointment: despite our repeated requests to have the new portion of the driveway match the original in the position of the cuts, his crew cut the slabs in a functional - but unappealing - way. When we brought this to his attention, Carl offered a sincere apology and a quite generous discount on the final invoice. Despite that glitch, I would have no hesitation in hiring Carl again or recommending his services.

masonry work on steps and replacement of two different types of damaged bricks

Aesthetically, the work was very good. I wasn't able to be at home when Carl Mace came by to draw up an estimate, so the initial communication problems could have been avoided.
Carl also took a look at our chimney. The work wasn't cheap, but it never really is with bona fide masons.

Q&A Q.What is the minimum/maximum amount a chimney flue should protrude above the chimney cap? A.You may be surprised to find that the minimum amount is 2"or 50mm and the maximum amount 4" or 100mm.(bare this in mind when getting a rebuild. only true professionals adhere to code) Q.Why do old buildings seem to be out lasting newer one's? A. There are a few factors involved, the main one is money (people are in such a rush to finish a project that their quality slips) but a big aspect is methodologies which are used, or not in a lot of cases! History has already shown us the way to successfully build so we should only be getting better!
