We highly recommend
to anyone who is looking to perform
-pointing or repair to their home!!!!! When you call them they do respond back in a timely manner (email or phone) We were fortunate to deal with
one of their project managers and he was professional, knowledgeable and punctual. Our First project was properly aligning limestone bricks on top of our home and deck with proper flashing and ropes underneath. Then we
-pointed one wall and our deck in addition to spot
-pointing on another wall of our home. Finally we decided to seal some of the upper bricks of our home . More recently, they continued to spot
point one wall and do more sealing of our bricks (since they are very porous). We will continue to use them for future services, because they take pride in their work and it shows. We are pleased with all of our projects and they beat everyone's price, I know because I called at least 10 other masonry companies!
When you are frustrated with your leaks or want to beautify your home, we highly recommend that you are reach out to them.

The chimney was in severe need of rework.
It may be due to the severe winter, but I was finding small pieces of a crumbling capstone and
Chicago Masonry Contractors Provider Name Locked
-pointing in my gangway.
When I finally was able to see the condition of the capstone (which had actually shifted too) I saw that it had deteriorated quite badly.
They were quick to respond to my quote request and came out to assess what repairs were needed.
I liked that I was offered two possible options with no hard-sell.
I could have gone with a repair or a rebuild.
But in consideration of the condition of the chimney, I chose to rebuild the chimney and replace the capstone.
Once I made the decision, I was put on their service list, and they came out a few days later.
They called before arriving for the work, and did the work while I was out.
When they left everything was cleaned-up very nicely.
In fact I wasn't even sure that they had shown up until I went up on the rear deck to get a better look at the chimney.
I was very pleased with the work which they had done.
Good communication and explanation of the service options, excellent workmanship, and cleanliness of the site on completion.
I am quite happy and would have no reservations in recommending their services.
Kudos and thanks to the owner

I contacted this company because of a leak in my unit. My initial contact was fine.
Chicago Masonry Contractors Provider Name Locked
was responsive and we scheduled a time so he can take a look at the leak. The first meeting went fine. He came out pretty much on time, took a look, and told me what he thought was the cause. He wanted to take a look at the unit above me to determine the exact cause of the unit. My neighbor was not available, so I told him I would talk to my neighbor, and schedule a new time with him. He said that works, so I figured he would come after I talk to my neighbor. After talking to my neighbor, I contacted
Chicago Masonry Contractors Provider Name Locked
to schedule another appointment. This time thought, he was not responsive. During a period of three days, I called him 4 times and texted him 4 times, and didn't get a call back. Finally, I was able to get in touch with him and scheduled an appointment for 10am the next day. When the day came, he didn't contact me that he wouldn't show up, and he didn't respond to any calls or texts. I understand being busy, but if you're busy and cannot accommodate me, he should be honest from the beginning instead of ignoring 6 phone call attempts and 5 texts. Very unprofessional. I can't speak for the actual work because he didn't show up to do anything.

As you can see from the list above, we had a number of projects that weren't urgent (no crises), but were parts of our house that were at the end of their useful life.
Working with
Chicago Masonry Contractors Provider Name Locked
and his crew were great - from quote through completion,
Chicago Masonry Contractors Provider Name Locked
did a good job of following up and keeping in touch on the different parts of this project. Everything was done as well as we could have hoped; things were done quickly (much faster than I had expected, in fact) and his crew did a good job of cleaning up after themselves. We were having a baby around this same time and they were also able to work around our scheduling needs. It was nice to have a single person to work with on this range of services rather than having to hire a bunch of different people for each project and manage them all individually. I highly recommend

and

I am a community real-estate investor buying homes in disrepair to resale but before i found
Chicago Masonry Contractors Provider Name Locked
's Masonry and Roofing it was a small investor nightmare for me trying to find a contractor that did great work and was reliable to start and complete the assigned job. Well i founded KMR to be an exceptional contractor their crew was focused on their work and didn't waste my time which made me very happy we all know that time is money. Upon completion of my roof they really cleaned their work area i was impressed. The site foremen was courteous, friendly and very professional i was pleased with KMR services their prices were fair and they did a great job on my roof. i "Highly Recommend" them and would refer them my friends.

No call, no show twice. I spoke to
Chicago Masonry Contractors Provider Name Locked
on a Weds to set up an appointment for the following Monday at 12:30PM. On Monday at 2:30, I still hadn't heard from him, so I called. He said that he was injured on a job, something about a bee sting, and that he had put me at the wrong time (or maybe he forgot to write down the appointment, it really wasn't clear).. .BUT he would be in the area tomorrow (Tuesday) around 2:30. Nobody is perfect, and mistakes happen so I agreed. Again, no show. I wasted my time waiting around without even the courtesy of a call to cancel. Very disappointing and I will certainly not waste any more time with these guys.

Ironically, we hired R&C to prevent possible leaks through our parapet walls, but it was after their work that we got several leaks. R&C performed the work in September 2012; the following January, we had new leaks in the top unit directly beneath the area where R&C had removed the flashing and tuckpointed the parapet walls.
When we informed R&C about this by phone, they at first denied the leaks were related to their work and blamed them on an old leak we had in a separate location via an HVAC pipe. (Soon after, our HVAC technician fixed that leak by patching the HVAC pipes in the roof.) But when R&C showed up and saw the new leaks, they then told us they would repair their own work, without admitting any blame. This would have been fine—but this year we've had yet more leaks in the same exact location. Again, this area never leaked prior to R&C's work. We once again called R&C, who came out, looked at our parapet walls, and told us the walls looked fine to them. This time they blamed the exteriors of the parapet walls, saying water may have entered that way.
Exacerbated, we called several other masons and roofers to assess the problem. All 10 of them told us the same thing: R&C had done a poor job. One roofer called the work "amateurish." These people told us that, when R&C removed the flashing, they simply exposed decayed brick that let in water and they did not sufficiently rebuild or tuckpoint the parapet walls to prevent leaks.
We don't think these companies were telling us this just to drum up business for themselves. In fact, the roofers said they could not do the brick work and that we would need masons to take care of it. And again, all 10 of these professionals had the same negative assessment of R&C's work.
What makes this even more upsetting is that, when R&C first removed the flashing and saw the poor quality of the bricks, the company charged us an additional $3,000 to repair them, bringing the total cost from $3,500 to $6,500. In the end, we spent $6,500 to get new leaks we never had.
To fix the problem once and for all, we had to find a professional company that actually knows what it's doing. That clearly isn't R&C.

has exceptional professionalism. He was honest about his scope of work, punctual, and responsive to my calls. Also, his pricing was better than 2 other bids I got for the project and he threw in a small area tuckpointing for free. I would definitely use his company again for future projects.

As this was my first experience in this area, I thought it went really well. I had done a lot of reading on relining chimneys and I think
this company just gives you a real good gut feeling about them.
From the day of contact, and I mean over several months they were so reassuring and professional. That's from the office worker to the workers that actually did the job. Its like you have known them forever.
We had to work from the yard next door and you could not tell they had been there. In fact my neighbor asked if they showed up because they left no signs of being there. Everything was cleaned up
