Carl and his team from Artistic Masonry Co. did an amazing job on our front stoop. When the original plan of replacing the brick structure got turned on its head (they discovered the original marble stairs beneath it), Carl and the team pivoted from the original plan to restore the stoop to its original form and beauty. We're honestly amazed with the results. This was by no means a straightforward...

PGW wrecked about three feet our old flagstone sidewalk when running a new gas-line into our house. Since my kids kept falling into the hole, I knew that I had better act! Carl was great to work with. He got the project done in one day, and he and his guys were very professional and cleaned up after themselves when they were done. There was one spot where PGW had spray painted a slate stone and th...

This is not what happened. Here is the actual story: This gentleman called me and asked me if I would consider doing a small patio for him. I explained that we were booked until late summer and that we weren't doing estimates at this time due to our backlog. He then explained that he was a disabled veteran so I agreed to make an exception and that I would try to stop by on Saturday but I couldn't ...

Working with Carl and his workers was very easy. Carl explained the things that he felt that I should know about the work. We scheduled a time and Artistic Masonry showed up exactly on time. They told me when they would start and stop and how long the job would take. Carl and his workers were very courteous, worked hard, and cleaned up after they were done. They moved some items in the basement th...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
My basement walls were resurfaced. The walls were prepped to remove loose or deteriorated masonry. They then applied a bonding agent and parged the walls with new cement with a sponge texture. They then applied Drycon cementious masonry water repellant to the walls.

This is the fourth project we have reached out to Carl about. So that says quite a bit about what we think of their work. He has repointed our brick front and rebuilt the stoop. He has built a cement walkway and a simpler fix of filling in a mortar joint between my and my neighbors house as we had yet another water infiltration issue. Carl and his crew are always professional and the work is alway...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Parged the foundation walls and built a brick wall. We were having water infiltration issue and decided it was time to get the foundation walls fixed. the walls were crumbling to the touch in many spots and each rain brought in water at the rear. There was no moisture protection ever done by the original contractors. In the south wall where we have half a crawl space, we had a brick wall built to close off part of it. Originally there was drywall, but we wanted something nicer and sturdier. We also in the space next to that wall had a cinder brick wall done along the rest of the south wall. This one is in the utility closet space. To do all this, the dry wall and carpet needed to be removed. The walls needed to be parged, and the brick wall built.

Carl and his team provide exceptional service and quality work. They communicate about scheduling, offer fair pricing, show up on time, and clean up when they leave. This is the second job I hired Artistic Masonry for and the work has been excellent both times.

From the initial meeting and estimate, through project completion, Carl Yockey managed all the details personally. The work needed, schedule, payment requirement, etc., were all thoroughly explained and completed by Carl and his terrific workers. No surprises. I would highly recommend Artistic Masonry, Carl Yockey, and his crew for any masonry work needed.

Carl was wonderful as well as his staff. He was prompt in providing an estimate and explained what needed to be done to achieve a dry basement. The original french drain and sump pump were no longer removing water. The walls were lumpy, bumpy and crumbling into the original pipes. He smoothed the walls and reparged the surface of the walls. He removed the concrete where necessary, replaced the lin...
