Refurbish Front Steps and damaged Masonry on House

We found Otto's Masonry on Homestars in September 2008 - we were looking for a contractor to refurbish the front steps of our 1950's bungalow. While other contractors would over-scope the project and propose major reno work, Otto was a breath of fresh air. He gave us a fair estimate and was able make the changes necessary, re-building our front steps and replacing badly damaged brick on the front facade.
We were willing to wait until this April to have Otto do the job. I highly recommend Otto's Masonry! He finished the job on-time and on-budget!

Front steps

Otto and his crew just completed our front steps in a "Halton" sand stone. We now have a front entrance to be proud of thanks to his skilled workers. This was a joint project with a neighbour and we found Otto very easy to deal with, reliable, and knowledgeable. He was on site daily and kept us informed at all times. I would not hesitate to recommend him.

Concrete and Masonry work

Otto has done a lot of work in and around my house from lifting a garage and pouring a concrete base to parging to pouring a new walkway between my house and my neighbours. He always is on time and does a great job for a fair price. He even comes back from time to time to check how his work is holding up after weathering. If there are problems that you might not even notice, he notices and fixes them. We are about to engage him in a major basement dig.

Parging

We had Otto's parge the side of our 90 year old house and were extremely pleased with the service. The original parging was extremely bubbly and uneven. While the job was much more time consuming than originally estimated, Otto's took the time to do a proper job and now the foundation is perfectly smooth. He even found a couple of other spots to fix up for us. Prices were in line with other quotes that we received.
Great job - would highly recommend!

Tuck Pointing and Parging

We required extensive tuck pointing and foundation parging, Otto's team was prompt, reliable and did exceptional work. Otto was excellent in following up with us on a daily basis and keeping us informed as the work progressed. We are extremely pleased with the results and would use Otto's again or recommend without hesitation.

Front porch & patio rebuild

Otto's Masonry did a wonderful job demolishing, redesigning and rebuilding our flagstone porch & patio. His price was reasonable, the job was started on the day specified and Otto was on site daily. He and his crew were skillful, pleasant, realiable and respectful of our property. They took great pride in the work and produced a very beautiful, high quality job. Otto is extremely professional and the nicest tradesman we've ever worked with. He ensured our 100% satisfaction. We highly recommend his services.

Front Steps of my home

Otto and I spoke when it was too cold to pour concrete. He promised I would be his first job and came more than once to see if the snow was gone and whether he could give a proper estimate. They started a couple of days ago and the job is finished, reasonably priced, and exquisite. They cleaned up and so many have already complimented us on how lovely the entrance looks now. Thank you Otto and your workers.

Built two brick columns, cleaned and pointed a semi-detached and installed a couple glass block windows

Otto was recommended to me by an ex-condo site supervisor who is now a part-time contractor and stay-at-home Dad. Otto gave a good price, was very straight-forward and reliable and did very good work. Since then, I have recommended him to several people and have been thanked by them for introducing him to them. He just did another small project for me and he was punctual communicative and gave good value. He asked me to review him here and I do so gladly. Keep up the good work Otto!

Addition foundation

“Otto and his crew are great! I am a GTA contractor and have been using Otto's Masory for many years. Prior to that I went through many incompentent and expensive masonry companies. Otto is a hands on owner with a wealth of knowledge about the industry, and he communicates that well to clients. Otto is an incredible problem solver and is attentive to details. His pricing is more than fare for the sevice and product he provides, and thats why I use Otto's Masonry exclusively and recommend them to all my clients and fellow contractors (when you find someone good you stick with them). Thanks Otto for always coming through for me”
