"Work took about one week during the hottest part of the summer. The old brick was matched so well I can't tell the old from new, and I didn't realize" how hard that part of the job would be. Care was taken that nothing on the house or landscaping was damaged. A new crown was pored on the top of the chimney. And water repellent was applied when the job was finished. I my opinion the job was done in a very professional manor, and I plan to have them do any masonry needed in the future.

"Job was not completed. Two stress cuts were to be made to prevent cracking. Slab cracked shortly after installation because only one cut was made. All attempts to" have the problem addressed have resulted in missed appointments without the courtesy of a call to say they were not coming.

Masonry exteriors

Generally considered the highest quality choice for home exteriors, brick and stone are also almost maintenance free and will last as long as the house, though some repairs may be needed from time to time.

Contractors say homeowners with this trait are the most satisfied with home improvement projects.

 If your home has clay brick, this cracking could simply be caused by moisture in the environment, says Pruett. (Photo courtesy of Brick Doctor Corp)
Masonry

Are the bricks on your house cracking and you fear there is a problem with your foundation? That may not be the case. Learn why your bricks may be cracking.

An indication of serious moisture being trapped behind masonry is efflorescence, which appears as a white powder or stain, says Rantanen. (Photo Courtesy of Jamison Home Services, LLC)

Even if your home looks safe from the outside, there are invisible hazards like moisture, radon and carbon monoxide you need to be on the lookout for.

Detergent soaking and low-pressure pressure washing (to avoid etching or swirling the surface) about $0.50-1.00/SF - ditto for the sealing. Minimum charge probably about $150. This is something you can easily do yourself if you are just a bit yard handy - rent a pressure washer (or use this job as excuse to buy one) - 1000-1500 psi one is all you want for this, a gallon of concrete/driveway washing detergent, a large paint brush for the sealer, and as much brick/stone/concrete sealer as you need for your area - could probably do yourself for about $0.50/SF. View a few online videos on how to pressure wash without leaving swirl or etch marks in brick/concrete.

This project with Mr.

I have used

before on flatwork and know he is meticulous so I called him for a solution to the small amount of water that gets into my basement with bad rainstorms. He verified with a level that my 1956 vintage stoop has settled so it is pitched slightly towards the house. Since I am not ready to tear it out,

Our steps were tragic-looking, that's why I needed to depend on a professional. The result is that I am beyond pleased with the quality of the work that Universal did today. Arti and

Jozo was able to match the new brick to the old brick perfectly. He built a tent around the fireplace to keep dust to a minimum and prepared fireplace remodel for a gas insert.

and his crew are outstanding!! They arrived on time and were friendly and respectful. They began the day by removing the original porch which then revealed another problem needing immediate attention. Our foundation behind the porch was not waterproofed nor was there any flashing between the wood and the brick or cinder blocks.

We called
Des Moines Masons Provider Name Locked
to get a quote on extending our concrete patio out into our yard. He responded quickly to our voicemail and was able to come out the same week. Once he was here, he made the suggestion of a flagstone patio to cover the existing concrete slab and extend it. At first, you would think this was an upsell, but when he gave us the quote, it was only a few hundred dollars more than the other contractors had quoted us to only extend the concrete. Well worth the cost if the aesthetics are at all important to you.
Once we chose to use
Des Moines Masons Provider Name Locked
for this project, he gave us the option letting him pick out the stone, or having us meet him at the stone yard so that we could personally pick it out. We chose it pick it out ourselves and
Des Moines Masons Provider Name Locked
was able to meet with us within a couple of days at the stone yard to pick out the materials. After that, it was only 4 days before they began work on the project that lasted 2 days. He has a good crew that was very patient with me as I asked questions about the work they were doing.
Des Moines Masons Provider Name Locked
was great in explaining to us how to care for the new patio and a timeline on when to take steps towards sealing it.
While I'm sure this wasn't a huge project for him, he knew that it was important to us and took the job seriously. Overall we are very happy with the work and would use
Des Moines Masons Provider Name Locked
for future projects.

This company did an excellent job installing and replacing old baseboards and quarter round on about 850 square feet of tile floor. They returned my calls for a quote promptly and kept appointments for estimating the job. A quote was provided in a timely manner and the crew arrived on time on the scheduled day of the installation. They went above and beyond and picked up extra material when I ran short and didn't charge extra for that service, which was awesome! The workmanship was excellent. They disposed of all old material and cleaned up nicely afterwards. The job was completed in one day and I'm very pleased with the beautiful results. I would definitely recommend this company and their installers. They are professionals and the service was terrific. Great work!

This was the second time

has performed stone work for me at my home. The company exceeded my expectations on every level both times from their price, quality of work performed and professionalism all the way from beginning to the end of our project. The finished project looks fantastic! Mr.

the owner of the company even sent his staff back to our home after the job was done to do additional clean-up to meet his expectations not mine. I was truly impressed and would highly recommend his firm to anyone needing these types of masonry services performed in the future. Best regards,
