This Fall (2019) is the sixth time that I've used Wilkens for masonry work on multiple properties. The work is always superb, both technically and aesthetically. Bill did the latest job, repairing a flagstone walkway, concrete porch, brick wall and asphalt driveway. He was a pleasure to deal with, due his dedication to quality, attention to detail, and patience in clearly explaining every aspect of the work. Once again, the outcome was worth every penny. Thank you!
Totally happy with the work. The project included the Chimney (coursing, flue, and rain caps) and the Firebox, Damper, Hearth, and some additional brickwork. It took approximately 2 weeks.
The Wilkens team did a great job with a high attention to detail. I appreciated their honesty; and their team was very good to work with. The project took a bit longer than expected, however there are always surprises with renovations.
I would totally recommend Wilkens for your Chimney and Fireplace needs.
We used Wilkens Contracting a few days ago to close a couple of basement windows. The pricing was fair, service was done quickly and the end result looks very nice. We will most definitely use them again when we do our tuckpointing in a few years and we can highly recommend this company.
Frank and his sons completely rebuilt our crumbling chimney. They were hard working, quiet, polite, prompt and cleaned up perfectly. Their work is beautiful and it’s nice to finally be able to use our fireplace again.
Dealings with Wilkens from start to finish was very professional. Thanks!
We are happy with the work they did on our house. They came when they said they would and finished the work when they said they would.
Explained everything and were very pleasant
They took pride in their workmanship too.
We had used the services of Wilkens Contracting in the past and were always very pleased with their work.
Our home is over 100 years old and needed major masonry work including a pillar replacement and chimney take down. Their service and workmanship remains superb - the brickwork is like new!
All the staff at Wilkens were incredible but a particular appreciation goes to the work crew of Frank, Richard & sons for an excellent job.
We cannot recommend Wilkens highly enough.

We needed a complete chimney rebuild. Having used Wilkens previously for a couple of smaller jobs we called them for an estimate. They climbed up to inspect the chimney and provided a detailed estimate, unlike the other two companies who just eyeballed it from ground level and grossly overestimated. We were given an approximate two week window for commencement of the work, weather-dependent, and true to their word called the day before to confirm. They arrived promptly at 8am, worked steadlily all day and came back the next morning for a couple of hours to finish and clean up. We couldn't be more pleased with the work and the service.
From the quote to the work being performed Wilkens did an excellent job. Showed up right on time, took extra precautions to protect the neighbours plants and cleaned everything up. Wish all my projects would go this smoothly.
Will be using again in the near future for further brickwork.
I got a referral from Facebook with glowing reviews so came here to double check. Wonderful reviews so got a quote for four bricks to be replaced and tuckpointing in a bunch of places. They got to work and it was done quickly and beautifully. I have referred them to friends and they were happy as well.
I need more work done and won’t hesitate to call again! Thx for doing what you said you would do, did it very well, and for a reasonable cost.
