Alexandria mason restores tuckpointing and brick
This month, we’re spotlighting a review from member Norman West of Washington, who shared great details and photos of his brick repair performed by Edgar’s Masonry Construction of Alexandria, Va. Angie’s List reviews like this one are especially helpful because they include all the particulars along with great before and after photos, which let members know why you think they should hire or steer clear of a company. So the next time you submit a review, don’t spare the details or the visuals!
Here’s what West had to say about his experience:
"At 7:30 a.m. on the first day, I could hear the work crew entering the back gate and moving their equipment into place. During the course of the work, it was discovered that water was seeping through a mortar joint above the kitchen window, causing major damage to the surrounding masonry. Without informing me, the workers simply gutted out all the damaged interior masonry and replaced it – all three layers. All I could do was gawk at the before and after. I was absolutely impressed! I’ve been told I could be quite critical and direct, but I was speechless. They left the work area in better condition than they found it — the brick patio was spotless and everything moved back into place. They even hammered a couple of loose planks on the fence back into place! All done in four days!"
