New Home or Building Construction
When you make the choice to use brick for the exterior for your home, secondary building or business – you’re making a great decision as there are few other materials available that can match the resiliency, ageless look and maintenance-free characteristics associated with. It can also be used as an accent piece on new structures as it meshes well with other building materials such as wood, vinyl, stone, stucco, and metal to name a few. Also, unlike wood, which requires painting/sealing or staining, no costly and time-consuming treatments are needed to maintain its look and integrity. It is also superior to vinyl which can fade, crack and potentially leak depending on the climate. The versatility and distinctive look of brick makes it a perfect choice for many different types of buildings.
Hearth and Chimney

Whether it’s a traditional shade of red or a more modern painted brick look, we can design and create the hearth of your dreams. Brick is very versatile when it comes to indoor fireplaces. It is also one of the most common materials used for the outdoor portion of your chimney. It can also act as a major design feature for your home.
Brick Repair and Restoration

Whether you have an old chimney that is showing signs of wear or a crack in an exterior wall, we have the experience to assess and fix these problem areas and restore them to their original appearance. When a restoration project is needed, it’s very important to choose a skilled mason to complete the repair.
