Chimney repair

My chimney was crumbling so I had estimates done to repair it. I had two other estimates and decided to have Straight up Masonry do the job.
It was the right decision. Not only did they do a very good job on the chimney but also repaired the chipped bricks along my living room window for no cost at all. They did a fine job of cleaning up of the debris on our lawn. They also clean up the mortar haze on our pavers.
My contact person with the company is Crystal and she is a very pleasant person to deal with.
All in all they did a great job.... I will not hesitate to recommend them.

Well done!

Our house badly needed cement parging all around the base. We hired Straight Up Masonry based on the excellent reviews and were not disappointed. Tony clearly explained what would be done, when our turn came. We were happy the work was done a week before we expected. David and Nick were very professional, punctual, polite, pleasant, hard-working and they cleaned up nicely after the work was completed. This is the best our house has looked, since we bought it 5 years ago. Thanks, guys!

Chimney rebuild and sidewalk replacement

The entire Straight Up Masonry team (from Crystal in the office, to the work crews) did a terrific job with our projects. The sidewalk replacement crew suggested and implemented changes to the configuration of the sidewalk, which eliminated trip hazards making for a cleaner looking, and safer walkway. Couldn't be happier!

Professional through and through

I needed some last minute masonry work and found these guys online. They came to see the job before they sent a quote and Crystal was amazing to deal with. Everything was communicated to me and the job was completed as promised. Their professionalism was top notch.
If I have any masonry needs I will definitely come back to them.

Chimney Repair

A few bricks on the top couple of rows of our chimney were starting to flake off, along with some cracked bricks and a cracked flue that needed replacing. The starting date was delayed (due to border closures) while Tony was trying to find matching bricks. Two employees arrived on the scheduled date, erected the scaffolding, rebuilt the chimney, removed the scaffolding and cleaned up the site, all in one day. After an inspection, they also ended up replacing the top of both flues, as they were crumbling below the cap. I did have to do a small touch up on the chalking around the flashing, but other than that, the work looks great, the employees were professional and friendly, and would recommend this company

Repair Chimney breast

We were very impressed with the workmanship of David and his assistant Nicholas. They arrived exactly on time, were very polite, and were meticulous in taking out the damaged bricks and replacing them with well matched bricks. When the work was done they totally cleaned the debris from our property and also made sure the neighboring property was free of any dust from their work.
We would highly recommend this company. Ask for David to do your job!

Brick repair on 100 year old house

A neighbour had hired Straight Up for pillar rebuild and recommended them. My house had many decaying bricks, leaking around the top row of bricks (row lock) on the first story and a potentially bad pillar. If I recall correctly, my first enquiry via their website Contact page was not answered, but when I emailed directly Crystal returned my email promptly, Tony came to inspect and I had a quote the next day. A work date window was arranged after I made a 20% deposit. This was reasonable as they are booking 2-3 months ahead. Unnecessary work was not done- the pillar just needed bricks replaced. The crew was extremely professional, polite and competent. They arrived at 7AM and cleaned up and were gone by 3PM for 3 days. The work is good and as described in the quote. Communication with the masons, Crystal and Tony was excellent- I would hire Straight Up again and recommend the company without reservation.

Brick Chimney Stack Removal

We found the Straight Up employees to be very friendly.
Our crumbling brick chimney stack, which wasn’t being used, was removed and the roof rebuilt to match the existing roof.
The site was cleaned up and all debris was removed.
We highly recommend this contractor.
