"Mr.
's crew showed up on time, completed the work (including sealing all the new caps) and cleaned up everything so you'd never" know work had been done. Then Mr.
figured out a way to avoid purchasing a new gate to the utility patio (the old gate had just had three bolts that fell out of the old holes in the brick). He got a local
to make brackets that allowed us to reuse the original ornamental gate. A comparable new gate would cost $400 at least and the repair was done for $120. I'd guess the gate as it is now reinstalled will last longer than the house. lHighly recommended - whenever we need masonry work in the future we'll be calling
. And incidentally the
/gate installer
was great and if you need anything like metal gate/fence work done Mr.
can probably get him to help.

"The provider,
& Sons sent me an automatic reply when I first wrote for their assistance. After that, I never heard from them. Twice" I wrote back to them through Angie's List and they never bothered to reply to my messages. My last one said if you are not interested, would you please let me know. I never heard from them. I cannot do business with people whon don't have the common courtesy to reply, even if they are not interested in my job.

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.

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.

I am a perfectionist to a fault, as any of my prior contacts will tell you.

It's clear that
Sycamore Masons Provider Name Locked
loves his work. From the very first (and prompt) returned phone call, his care and craftsmanship shone through. He listened to what we were looking for and was engaged and interested in our project. Before he arrived (promptly), he had walked around the neighborhood to get a sense of the surrounding architectural styles. He helped us decide on a design that would harmonize with our neighborhood overall, our ca.-1900 brick row house in general, and its particular brick and stone work in particular. Then
Sycamore Masons Provider Name Locked
recommended specific brick and stone companies so that we could match our materials in person, which was important to us, and look at locally sourced as well as imported stone. (He matched the tinted mortar on his own!) Aesthetically and practically, the result was fantastic. Walking up and down our steps is, as
Sycamore Masons Provider Name Locked
had said it should be, "a mindless delight": They're so even and comfortable that you don't even think about what you're doing. There's literally no need to "watch your step." Also,
Sycamore Masons Provider Name Locked
communicated clearly and consistently throughout the project. We're delighted. People stop us on the sidewalk to compliment our steps!

Owner came with an estimate within 48 hours of call. Work was completed in a couple of days. He stayed on site supervising a team of 5 guys. Everyone was professional and friendly. He was good about answering all of my questions and explaining the process.

It took 2 phone calls to get in touch with the company. I called on a Thursday afternoon and left a message (call was not returned). When I didn't hear back I called again that next Monday (June 22) and spoke with
Sycamore Masons Provider Name Locked
about the needs of the property (we are at a Homeowners Association in
Sycamore Masons Provider Name Locked
, MN--we have 3 buildings for a total of 17 units). Our buildings needed an assortment of brickwork repair done in the fronts of the buildings. He thanked me for calling back and explained that sometimes the work gets too busy to call people back when they leave messages (I told him I understand).
Sycamore Masons Provider Name Locked
made an appointment for 5:30pm to come down on Wednesday, June 24 to bid out the work. He was there on-time (ahead of time by 10 minutes) and did a great job in detailing the work that needed to be done to each unit. He explained terminology, took measurements, pictures, etc--very thorough! We took about an hour to walk through the grounds and make notes.
He asked how many bids we were getting on the work and I told him we were hoping to have at most 5 companies. He then lamented on a woman who had called him for work awhile back and that his company would be her 11th bid--so he declined to bid her property's work. After that he asked when I would like the bid by; I asked to get back to me by Friday,
Sycamore Masons Provider Name Locked
3 at the latest as our Board was going to review bids and move forward that following week. He took down my e-mail and said he would most likely have the bid to me by June 26th.
We never heard back from him.
Sycamore Masons Provider Name Locked
was friendly and seemed knowledgeable. However if you are able to get in touch with him to get him for a bid I would caution you on what the customer experience is like once hired if this was how my experience went with no services performed.

They were on time and quickly went to work. When they were finished they cleaned off the roof, gutters and drive. We're very pleased with the results. The team that came out was professional and pleasant. The estimate for the work was right on target. I would not hesitate to call them again.

Everything was perfect. We had many spots on the house, including areas that are 3 stories above ground level, that needed to be repaired - everything from pointing up to replacement of bricks; repairing surface cracks in the stucco, etc. It was one of those "little bits but all over a big house" jobs. There was no doubt that the men doing the job knew what they were doing. They were here ahead of time every day so they could start promptly on schedule. Mr.
Sycamore Masons Provider Name Locked
was in daily contact so we knew exactly what was happening and what to expect. Despite their working on every surface of our house, having to remove bricks from all entry stairways, and requiring scaffolding there was no disruption of our lives while work was being done. The workers were cheerful, considerate, efficient and skilled. Cleanup after the job was complete. I really can't think of anything negative to say and I would certainly use them again. I chose to "N/A' the price rating only because I have no comparison point, but to me the service was worth the price.

(one of the 2 owners) and his 3 workers arrived when he said they would. When the existing steps were removed, they discovered a large hole and rotted wood in the foundation where the back of the steps would come flush with the front of the porch of the house. They cleaned it out and put in a number of concrete blocks and sealed them.
Sycamore Masons Provider Name Locked
charged a fair price for the additional unexpected work. He stayed until he felt he could leave the men on their own and returned toward the end of the next day. The 3 men were good workers, genial, and did the work in 2 extremely hot and humid days. The results are solid and beautiful. I would highly recommend them.
