Basement renovation

Tony and his team were fantastic! When Tony came for the original quote he was very knowledgeable and professional. He also provided some excellent advice to keep costs to a minimum.
The crew arrived on time and started working right away. We needed 2 windows bricked in, one blocked in and a new window cut. Everything was completed within a day and a half. They worked well with our general contractor (he's keeping their name on file for future jobs). At the end of both days the crew cleaned up and kept the site as clean as possible even when they were working. The final cost was actually lower than their original quote!

They also took Covid 19 precautions and social distancing into account. Very important at this time! I highly recommend Straight Up Masonry.

Thanks you for the review.
Glad we could help in these difficult times. We are taking this very seriously so we thank you for limiting the trades on site while we where there.
I believe if the scope of work changes either way then the price should also do so.
Thanks Again
Tony and Crystal.

Repair masonry in older home

I contacted Straight Up masonry after researching companies on Line after my home Inspector recommended I needed a fix up . They had a reputable on line presence and were a well known and busy company. I made the right choice. They got back to me quickly and helped me identify what I needed done. they came out to my home without me even having to be there, and described to me in detail using photographs exactly what was in disrepair. The quote was reasonable and we set a date to do the work. The mason came to the house and was completely self sufficient- I just said hello and he went to work. The job was terrific and I’m happy that I thank ok the time to do the necessary repairs to my home. Thank you Straight Up!

Parging

The parging on our foundation was cracked and falling off. Straight Up Masonry came in and removed the old parging and reparged the foundation.
Price was very reasonable and work was carried out quickly on the date given.
Would definitely recommend!

Removal of stone facade & porch, rebuild of concrete door sill

We were in search of a company to demolish the stone facade of our home, as well as the stone porch and flower bed, and after much research we decided to hire Straight Up Masonry. They did a great job and were prompt on following up with additional work in a short time frame once we discovered that our door sill needed to be rebuilt. It was a very positive experience the whole way through, and it was a pleasure to deal with Crystal, Tony and crew. Excellent service, honest upfront estimate and a great result. We wouldn't hesitate to contact them again if we are in need of any stone or brick work in the future. Thank you Crystal and Tony!

Interlock & brickwork

This company delivers the highest quality of workmanship and the owners and crews are always a pleasure to work with.

This was the third project they've done for me. Although the job was smaller and pickier than the previous two, the work was done with the same care, on time and on budget.

Chimney Repair

I have a secondary chimney that was shifting and sinking and afraid it was going to collapse. After researching masonry companies recommended on Home Stars, I chose Straight Up Masonry and wasn't disappointed. Tony gave me a few options to rectify the chimney and after weighing the options and costs, I chose to repair verses removing (roof and eaves would have to be done if I removed chimney). Straight Up did some tuck pointing, replaced some of the bricks and installed steel lintels. Thanks to Tony, Crystal and the crew who all did an amazing job. Would highly recommend to family and friends!

Window Openings and Lintels in Brick Foundation Wall

This was our third project with Straight Up Masonry. They previously rebuilt our chimney and front porch pillars with excellent results in both cases. I've just had them back this week for some work to my brick foundation wall. I needed four rough openings cut into the brick foundation wall for new basement windows, steel lintels installed, and two old openings bricked up.

Their workmanship is always top-notch, their crew very skilled, polite, and respectful, this most recent project no exception! They reused bricks from cutting the new openings to fill in the old openings for a closer match and you can't even tell where the old windows used to be! It all matches perfectly, toothed in nicely as if my 100-year-old brick foundation wall had always been that way!

Great communication from Tony and Crystal, extremely responsive to emails and texts, great workmanship, fair price, crew is always extremely punctual, arriving at 7:30 am on the dot to start work, friendly and respectful of my property and that of my neighbours.

I'm running out of masonry projects that need doing, but if I think of any more, I would call Straight Up Masonry for a fourth time!
