"This company provided me the lowest estimate and Mr.
and his staff promptly returned my phone calls. In
this day and age, I appreciate this small courtesy. The company was very accommodating to my schedule, as I had scheduled vacation time so that I could be
when the work was done.
The short story is that I purchased a home over a year ago that was built in the early 1950’s. I concluded that the previous owner(s) had not had this type of maintenance done since the house was built. As a result, the mortar around the window sills had significantly deteriorated and/or washed away. There were also several noticeable cracks in
the outside brick wall due to the lintels expanding, contracting, and rusting away. Mr.
and his crew cut away
the mortar, removed the bricks, chiseled away the old mortar from the bricks, replaced the old rusted lintels with new ones, and then put the bricks back in place with new mortar. His crew also added mortar to several spots to seal some long cracks in the brick work. They also did some work on the chimney to add new mortar to several places where it had deteriorated on the chimney as well. This was a two day job, as I had this work done to nine windows, three walls, and one side door. After all the work was done, they came back on the third day to wash down the areas where they worked with detergent to wash away some stains and a good bit of dust.
I considered this a positive experience. The crew came to work exactly when they said they would, did exactly what I agreed to in the estimate. They also removed and hauled they need to work around two windows and a door. The
crew was able to get to several second story windows without much of a problem. They also addressed some issues
with a garage wall even though I had specifically said to leave the wall as it is, because I was considering having the window removed and a door placed in the wall at some point in the future. I would also like to comment that they did a decent job of cleaning up all of the areas outside where they had been working.
My only negatives were that they did not put several shutters that were taken down back up as securely as I thought they
should have. I went back and did this myself so that the shutters were secured to my satisfaction. I also noticed after the crew had left that there was a larger gap between the side door and the brick and mortar of the outside wall than there had been previously. In some sections this gap was roughly1/4 of an inch and big enough for bugs to get into and nest. Again, I made the decision to address this issue myself with the caulking/mortar sealant from the hardware store to close off these gaps. I want to be clear, that since the final bill came to the exact amount of the estimate, I choose to address these issues myself. I concluded that these issues were outside the normal scope of a brick mason and probably outside their normal duties. Since they did some extra work on the garage wall, I figured this was a break even situation.

"It went great. The work was done within a week of my initial call. My neighbors who have a much better view of the chimney than I do watched the work in progress and had only good things to report about the team and the result. I would not hesitate to call

for any masonry work.

"AWESOME work! We have two massive chimneys that were ready to collapse. The house was built in 1897 and I don't think anything was done to those chimneys since! Because it needs roof work as well, I first asked roofers to give me a price. One was more than the cost of my car and others wouldn't touch them. I thought we were going to have to eliminate them altogether which would compromise the ascetics of the house and render the fireplaces useless forever. I called several masonry firms and again, one didn't want to touch them. They are very tall and the slate roof is very steep; this couldn't have been an easy task.

was the quickest to respond; he came out the same day that I called to take a look at them and had the estimate to me very quickly. The amount he charged to restore them was much less than it would have cost me to have a roofer remove them!! That was a no-brainer decision. The work was completed in one week including assembling and disassembling scaffolding (technically two weeks, but the weather was uncooperative after the scaffold went up). The guys worked very quickly! Everyone was super nice, very polite, etc. And, most importantly, the work is better than I could have hoped for! The chimneys look brand new.

"No doubt about it,
Pittsburgh Masonry Contractors Provider Name Locked
and his crew are the BEST. My brick was hard to match in color and texture, but
Pittsburgh Masonry Contractors Provider Name Locked
was the only contractor to meet with me in person while doing an estimate, and then he stopped by again to show me the brick he got to closely match my existing brick, even prior to me hiring him. The work done by his company exceeded my expectations. The chimney looks great. He additionally recaulked the flashing. The job was done in one day. After completing the job he enclosed the chimney in plastic wrap since he was expecting rain that night, and had someone come over and remove it the next day. Since I now have found someone that can do good brick work, I will be hiring him again to do more brick work and my front porch and driveway wall.

"Ed provided a very competitive price for cleaning the brick on our 89 year old home. The brick had never been cleaned and was very dirty. It now looks 100% better. Ed was able to work us into his schedule sooner than he at first indicated, which was good. What I especially liked was that Ed worked with me to not be too aggressive with the cleaning, because I didn't want the expense of having to repoint the brick. His work was excellent.

"The job went very well. I contacted
Pittsburgh Masonry Contractors Provider Name Locked
Fisher and he came out to give me an estimate within a day or two of me calling him. He called me back with the estimate the next day and also provided me with a written estimate via email. We had had several other concrete repair companies come out to look at the job. Some wanted to try to do do the repair without replacing the concrete blocks which were crumbling, and others wanted to tear the entire porch down and replace the whole thing.
Pittsburgh Masonry Contractors Provider Name Locked
's proposal for repairing and replacing the concrete blocks, as well as sealing all of the cracks so that future water damage would be prevented seemed like the most reasonable proposal, and it was also the most cost effective.
He came out the following week with his crew and they completed the entire job within a day. The quality of the work they did was excellent, and the porch looks great. I would not hesitate to use
Pittsburgh Masonry Contractors Provider Name Locked
again for any future work, and I would highly recommend them to anybody who needs masonry work done.

"Contact with
Pittsburgh Masonry Contractors Provider Name Locked
Fisher was delightful and prompt. He did the proposed work in a timely fashion and made a dramatic impact on the visual esthetic of the home by being extremely conscious of detail. He blended the work well to the existing structure. He exceeded my expectations and was thorough and neat.

"I initially reached out to Masons in October 2013, and like many of the other providers I contacted
Pittsburgh Masonry Contractors Provider Name Locked
was booked through the end of the season as Winter started early and didn't let up. However, unlike all of the other providers I reached out to they actually called me back in the Spring to check in and see if the work was still needed.
Pittsburgh Masonry Contractors Provider Name Locked
came out to give the estimate as scheduled and the price was right in the range I was looking to pay (another provider refused to do the work unless they did the whole house - a $13,000 quote!). Their scheduler -
Pittsburgh Masonry Contractors Provider Name Locked
, I believe - was extremely courteous and called to let me know when the crew would arrive. They showed up on time, did an excellent job, and were very, very clean. They even made sure my neighbors closed their windows because of the potential mortar dust!
They repaired 2 window lintels and pointed all the bricks up from the lintels wrapping around the side of the house. No more leaks into the house and it no longer looks like my house is shrugging. I cannot recommend
Pittsburgh Masonry Contractors Provider Name Locked
and his team more highly, and will definitely use them in the future.
(They even offered to fix a crack in the sidewalk at no cost! Seriously they are very, very good!)

"Called
Pittsburgh Masonry Contractors Provider Name Locked
the service provider April 28th 2014. Gave me price the next day. Good price and said okay. To my surprise the job was completed May 2 Friday and the next day came back and removed the forms on Saturday. What a beautiful job. The folks on my street said I have the nicest house on the street. Ha! .
