Why hire a masonry contractor

There’s a lot more to fixing up your home’s brick walls than cleaning up cracked mortar – a lot of different issues can pop up, from efflorescence to bulging brick. You’ll need the right skilled professionals (i.e., bricklayers or masons) to deal with each of them. Doing it all on your own can be overwhelming, which is why we recommend hiring one of our masonry contractors. They’ll take care of every detail for you, from start to finish, and ensure that everything meets your needs, budget, and desired aesthetic.

Your Personal Assistant

A dedicated Renovation Advisor is assigned to your project. Your Advisor will be there to schedule appointments, help you understand quotes, provide you with a Verification Report for each contractor, and support you until your renovation is complete.

What to ask a masonry contractor

Before the work begins, it’s important to meet with potential masonry contractors. It’ll give you a chance to chat about your project and get a feel for them as a person. If you find that you get along better with one contractor versus another, trust that gut feeling – it’s a good sign! That said, we still suggest asking them at least some of the following questions to better understand what kind of work you’ll be getting into.

What can a masonry contractor do?

Bricklaying and Stonemasonry

Whether you’re working on a home addition or simply repairing your masonry, you’ll need someone skilled that knows their way around brick and stone. Bricklayers and stonemasons can help with these types of projects – they specialize in building walls from the ground up!

Brick Repointing

While brick and stone can last over a century, mortar needs to be redone every 25 years. Over time, mortar gets damaged and cracks, allowing moisture to seep into your home and eventually causing the wall to fail and collapse. A mason can repoint your mortar joints to keep your exterior in good condition.

Bowed or Bulging Brick Repair

After winter has ended, you may notice a large bump in your masonry. This phenomenon is called bulging brick and it occurs when water seeps in through mortar joints and swells, forcing the brick to jut outward. A qualified mason can fix it to preserve the wall’s structural integrity and prevent collapse.

Heritage Building Restoration

If your home or building is in an older part of town, your masonry project may need to comply with local heritage bylaws. For this, we recommend hiring a skilled mason with experience in heritage restoration as the work is meticulous, sometimes requiring that each brick be installed in a specific order.

How much does a masonry renovation cost?

A mason’s rates will vary based on their experience, qualifications, and services offered. Beyond that, the cost of masonry work will largely depend on the type of project and how many labour hours are needed to get the work done. For example, repointing is going to be a lot less expensive than having lintels or ledges installed. Masonry projects tend to range between $30,000 for low-budget projects and $48,000 for high-end homes

    What are the risks of working with cheaper masonry contractors?

    When hunting for a masonry contractor, you’ll notice a large variation in rates. And while this can often be explained by the individual’s profession (i.e., bricklayer vs mason), sometimes it’s a warning sign. While it’s great to save some money, it’s not really worth it if the work isn’t done well. From badly mixed mortar to poorly installed anchors, a lot can go wrong!

    Avoid crumbling mortar, collapsed walls, and bowed brick and instead hire a qualified masonry contractor. It’s worth the investment – it’ll protect you and your home!
