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.

Brick Repair and Restoration

Today, finding a contractor that arrives on time, works diligently till the job is complete and does so with pride in workmanship is highly unusual. Even before the job had started he responded promptly with quote and answered all of our questions without friction. Carl, a young man, is an old-school man of integrity.

Kithcen Renovation

They removed an old chimney and patched up the bricks around some new windows. They were very fast and the work looks seamless. They cleaned up afterward and followed up with us to make sure we were happy with the work.

Unique Chimney Repair

Living in downtown Toronto, it is not unusual for houses to be very close together. My house is only a few feet away from my neighbour's and in fact, the roof lines almost touch at the top. When it rains very hard, water overshoots my neighbour's eves and into the side of my house. Over the years erosion had caused the bricks to deteriorate to such a degree that water was seeping into my chimney. My neighbor had done everything he could on his end, but the problem persisted on those few days when the rain came down in torrents. What to do?
Carl had a unique idea to place a stone sill on my chimney about two feet below my roofline and then mortar parge over the bricks above it. The theory being that the water coming off my neighbour's roof will hit the parged area and then drip off the sill away from the wall below it.
This was a very tight space to work in and scaffolding had to be erected in order to complete the work. As usual Carl and his team were quick and efficient and all cleaned up afterwards. The finished work was very neatly finished, despite the fact it's almost invisible from the ground to all but the very observant.
In the past, I had had other reputable firms tuck point the affected area with no improvement. I applaud Carl on his innovative thinking on this one!

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!
