INITIAL INSPECTION & QUOTATION -
Its our job to provide accurate answers to ways in which masonry deteriorates over time and how it relates to your building. We are comfortable working with Architects or independently to find solutions relating to years of neglect or previous poor repairs using incompatible materials.
TRADITIONAL MATERIALS & TECHNIQUES -
We prefer to use materials like hydraulic lime mortar, historic brick and stone in ways that are sympathetic to the host masonry and function similarly as those past on through time.
FOCUS & DETAIL -
Buildings that have stood over a hundred years and are considered to be in exceptional shape have many things in common. The skilled masons who built them understood their materials and how they related to the environment around them. We have studied these same principles and are applying them today.

FRONT FACADE RESTORATION -
We have the experience and capabilities to record, dismantle and rebuild a brick facade. Salvaging all usable masonry and often combining it with reclaimed or new Ontario size brick sourced from England can provide a bridge to the past and breathe another century into the buildings front appeal.

MASONRY CLEANING -
Cleaning either brick or stone requires a sensitive approach and an understanding of the materials and products on the market. We currently are working with a hot steam/water system that can remove years of carbon or layers of paint. Cleaning the brick or stone allows us transition the new or reclaimed units into the wall without notice. If done correctly, masonry cleaning can add new life to a brick or stone facade.

HERITAGE REPOINTING AND TUCKPOINTING -
All Masonry will eventually deteriorate, especially at the mortar joints. Repointing masonry units with the correct mortar and quality workmanship is one of the most important procedures performed on historic buildings. We can match joint tooling and profiles, including English tuckpointing, found across Toronto.
