Outside brick work on house

I phoned a number of Masonry Contractors for an estimate to have a small job done on the outside of the house. Tony came right over and I had an faire estimate from him the next day.

Tony came to do the job on the day we agreed on and had the job done to my liking. He was able to match the old brick and the house looks in great shape now.

I will call Tony if I need any more work done and will recommend him to others who need masonry work.

Tony was first to contact me- arrived on time, and finished the job perfectly and at the price he quoted. The brick work on our house looks brand new thanks to Tony. I would highly recommend him.

Straight Up is an apt name for this company. Tony came through with exactly the work agreed on and at a very reasonable price. The work was carried out with impressive skill and attention to detail. I would not hesitate to hire Straight Up for more great work.

Resizing of window opening

A new kitchen is being installed - the kitchen window needed to be resized and the hole left from the old exhaust fan bricked up.

Using reclaimed brick from the house Tony did a very neat job.

He also cut to size and replaced the original stone sill so the window opening matches the other windows on the back of the house.

Tony arrived when he said he would - the job was completed quickly and he was pleasant to deal with.

I was so pleased with the work that I have asked him to look at doing a larger job on the garage.

Relocation of a door and window and related brickwork

I needed a front door and window relocated for the purpose of symetry during a renovation. My sister recommended Tony from Straight Up. The
problem, finding a matching brick was near impossible, so Tony had to save as many of the existing bricks as possible. He did. Long story short, the door and window are now properly spaced and the brick work
matches perfectly. They look like they've been there since the house was first built. I couldn't be happier. Straight Up Masonry was, guick, reliable, resonably priced and most importantly, highly skilled and competent. I highly recommend them to any and all.

Build masonry retaining wall in garden

Tony and Decky removed an existing retaining garden border made of cedar and built a new concrete brick retaining wall. They removed the old material, excavated, poured a concrete base and built a very attractive brick wall that follows the natural curve of the garden and the different levels of the garden. They did it on time and exactly on the estimated budget. Bricks and mortar look excellent. I was very impressed with their workmanship and professionalism. I would highly recommend them
