Chimney rebuild

From fitting in our chimney rebuild job before it was actually scheduled, to taking quick action after asbestos was discovered, to picking the job up the day after remediation: Straight Up Masonry were fantastic. They did the job quickly and efficiently, with a minimum of disruption. Highly recommended!

Chimney rebuild

Tony and his team came to the rescue of my aging chimney. Brick and cement bits had been falling from above our deck. They were able to match the existing brick so closely that you would think it was original to the house.
Great work!!

Need tuck-pointing? Go with Straight Up Masonry!

Both my son and I liked and trusted Tony immediately. He's smart, friendly, and his business ethic fits his business name. Unlike so many in the construction business, Tony and his crew showed up on the date agreed upon and was on time. More significant is that they did a beautiful job. We recommend him without reservation.

Organized, Skilled, Conscientious, Reliable

We had a 130-year old chimney that had not been in use for over 20 years, and it was in need of removal. Tony and his two assistants were fabulous! This job turned out to be trickier than expected, because of the poor condition of the bricks and mortar. They arrived on time at 7:30 am, efficiently set up scaffolding at the demolition site, then began work. The task at hand was carried out expertly, and the clean up was perfect. The entire project was completed, including cleaned up, by 1:00 pm. We were impressed! This was our first experience with Straight Up Masonry, but we would call upon them first for any future masonry needs.

Hi DCW,
Thank you for the great review. The chimney removal couldn't have happened at a better time, it was very unstable and probably wouldn't have stayed standing another winter.
With a little planning, it came down in a controlled manner.
We really appreciate the business.

Fabulous Front Steps Repair

Repairing the mortar on my front steps seemed like a simple enough job, but somebody had already given it a go once and, though it looked okay, the repair didn't last. Very disappointing. I turned to Straight Up Masonry because of its many positive reviews, and now add my own. Very easy to deal with, showed up on time, did an excellent job, explained how their work would make a difference. Very satisfied and highly recommend. These guys know their business.

Excellent work

After getting quotes from several companies, we decided to go with Straight Up Masonry, and we are so glad we did. We thought their price was reasonable; Tony was great at communicating with us in a timely fashion and patient in answering all my questions; they arrived on schedule, did a beautiful job rebuilding our chimney, cleaned up completely, and finished on time. We couldnt ask for a better experience, and would highly recommend them for any chimney repairs you may need. Very thankful to the whole crew for a job well done.

Chimney Rebuilt and Replacement of Bricks on Pillar

I was quite satisfy with Straight Up Masonry in their work. My chimney was crumbling which needed to be rebuilt and the bottom bricks on my front pillar were deteriorating which needed to be replaced. Prior to hiring Straight Up, Tony was able to answer all my questions and explain to me so I would have a better understanding of the work involved. I was worry about my shrubs and tree in the front yard, but there were no damage. The crew made sure each time they left the driveway was cleaned up. After the work was completed, Tony sent photos of the new chimney. They did an excellent job that my brother-in-law has hired them to rebuild the chimney at his house.

New front porch construction

Tony and his team did an outstanding job building a new front porch for my home.
They worked quickly and efficiently and made sure everything was tidied up before leaving each day.
Tony was able to match the new stone to the existing older stone on the house. His attention to detail and workmanship is superb.
The completed job was amazing and far exceeded my expectations. I couldn't be happier!
I highly recommend Straight Up Masonry.

Window Sill Replacement

The Straight Up Masonry team replaced my crumbling brick/parged window sill with a new piece of limestone. From the beginning, communicating with them was fast and efficient. Tony took the time to answer all of my questions, the price was reasonable, and the job was completed when he said it would be.

Two gentlemen completed the project while I was at work. Besides coming home to a great looking new window sill, I wouldnt have even known they had been there. They carefully worked around my garden making sure not to damage my plants and left everything spotless. I would definitely recommend them and use them again.
