Outdoor Stone work on House

WOW! How lucky we were to connect with SMC Masonry. Our project was on a time crunch and Stephen and his crew swooped in and literally saved the day. At the time we did not know that Stephen was a Red Seal mason; but so happy to learn he was. Our project ran into some hurdles but that did not stop Stephen and his crew from from more than fulfilling our vision. Stephen and his crew were so easy to work with; very knowledgeable and approachable. Even though this was a very small project in the grand scheme of things by the end Stephen and his crew were like family. We would recommend SMC Masonry to anyone and everyone. The level of work exceeded our expectations! Thank you so much SMC Masonry for adding to our home and becoming part of our story.

Front Walkway

Stephen and his crew were wonderful. He listened carefully to what we wanted and made suggestions where his expertise was needed. Stephen was gracious and kind, as were his crew, to take on a labour intensive job of redoing our flagstone walkway during a rushed race before winter set in. They took their time and did the job as it should be done without missing the crucial steps but maintained the time frame they told us it would take them, even if it meant staying late and returning on the weekend to do the final touches. We were lucky to have found them on Homestars and would definitely recommend them!

Stone Walkway Repair

My stone walkway needed repair, and Steve was recently recommended to me by a friend. Once I contacted him, he came around to see it and the job was done within a short time frame. Even though it was a small job, he found time to fit it in. His pricing was reasonable, and he with his assistant did a great job. I would definitely recommend Steve and SMC Masonry.

Chimney Restored

I don't think anyone wants to do a chimney restoration, but when it comes to preserving your house's value and keeping water out of your roof, it becomes a necessity. SMC Masonry impressed me for a couple main reasons. 1) Their work is overseen by a Gold Seal Mason and our crew was led by a Red Seal Mason. 2) Stephen took the time to visit the site before providing the quote, and he provided a thorough explanation of the options and what the job entailed each time we communicated. I am by no means a masonry expert, so I appreciated that he was willing to take the time to educate me in a respectful manner.

The quote (amount shown included tax) was in the mid-range of what I received on Home Stars, and later research suggested that it was right in line with industry standards. The work was completed as described and within the promised time frame despite some rain delays. They were also flexible about receiving payments when I exceeded my bank's 24 hour e-transfer limit.

The job site was cleaned up well overall, but I had to wash our recently painted deck afterward. I would suggest to anyone having similar work performed to do the following. 1) Tarp your deck if you have one. 2) Move or cover any plants near the house (particularly fruits and vegetables). 3) Shut off your air conditioner for the day and put your A/C cover on it. Hope that helps.

Thank you very much for your kind review. We did do a thorough clean up however dust will always tend to settle after the fact. Your chimney came apart in my hands with no need to touch a hammer so it was very much in need of rebuilding. The mortar had disintegrated and turned to dust. It is always a pleasure to take care of our clients and receive a review that affirms our efforts.

New Window Sills

I hired Stephen and his team to do some brick work on my home. The response from their team was above and beyond (located bricks that where no longer being made & found the perfect match). Stephen and his teams knowledge and expertise stood out far greater than any other quotes I explored. As a result, I was extremely pleased with the work they completed along with an additional repair they noticed and also completed as well.
Great work and happy customer.

Excellent work and attitude

Very professional and clean. Did a beautiful job on three different chimneys, and we are very satisfied with the work done. The team had an excellent attitude, being pleasant to work with and cheerful. They cleaned the site up at the end of the job, and we were very satisfied with the entire experience.

Stone work

Our bungalow needed a face-lift and we chose SMC Masonry. Stephen & his crew were fantastic to work with from start to finish! There was a slight issue that needed to be fixed after they completed. No issues with returning and correcting. Highly recommend SMC! We have had so many compliments! We just love how our house looks now. Thank you Stephen & all your SMC crew.
