We deeply appreciate every testimonial we receive, but there's something special about hearing kind words about our work from a professional as well respected as Warner Nelson, owner of Nelson Roofing in Chicago. Thank you Warner!

Most of our testimonials come from projects in the Chicagoland area, but John from North Carolina wrote us a note thanking us for our website! The way he put it made us laugh out loud.

It means the world to us that people outside of Chicago are finding our site to be a helpful resource. Thanks John!

I was driving through Lincoln Park this week and happened to look out the passenger-side window while stopped at a red light. I saw a mason working on top of what appeared to be a 20’-tall chimney (which itself was built atop a 50’-tall building) and fumbled for my camera to capture what I saw.

I had so many concerns about this mason’s safety that I parked the car, ran over to the job site, and suggested to the worker that he return to the job after he had the equipment needed to perform the job safely... Click through to read the whole story on our blog!

A client whose masonry home we repaired back in 2014 recently requested an inspection of a just-constructed home in the Bell School neighborhood that he was interested in purchasing for his family. The home was really lovely, the floors gleamed, the walls were pristine, and it had GREAT curb appeal. But closer inspection of the building’s envelope revealed a lot of short cuts....

A great testimonial from Ms. T. Brown, the Deputy Director of Family Matters in East Rogers Park!

Personal protective equipment are items worn to minimize exposure to hazards that can cause serious injury or illness. In the world of masonry restoration, our most common forms of PPE include hard hats, protective eye wear, face masks and respirators, work gloves, and steel-toed work boots.

During a recent project on the Magnificent Mile in Chicago, the men ground out and tuckpointed defective mortar joints on a very lovely and historically significant century-old fountain (see image). PPE on this project included full face masks with pink P-100 filters to avoid inhalation of mortar dust (a common cause of silicosis), long pants and gloves to avoid cuts and scrapes, and steel-toed shoes. The grinder held by the mason below has a safety guard installed over the blade to avoid serious injury, as well as a vacuum attachment to minimize the amount of dust released into the environment.

From senior project managers to laborers, every one of the men at AAA-1 Masonry & Tuckpointing, receive on-going PPE training. We all carry OSHA 10 certification, scaffolding certification (suspended, fixed and system), and maintain an impeccable safety record.

A big part of our job involves educating the public. Educating those who depend on me so they can make good informed decisions. Thank you for your nice words, Brenda!
