"Fantastic Job on our Stone Piers!"

Richard and his crew were always on time, worked diligently and left with no mess. The stone pillars they constructed look great and really add to the value of our home. I would highly recommend them !

"Great Results, Personable, Expert"

I had E&R Schwarz Masonry Ltd. tackle the job of extensive repointing and brick replacement (reclaimed brick) on my century home. Richard Schwarz is very knowledgeable, providing explanations, suggestions and advice which helped tremendously in our decision making and planning. I found their work to be very good; the team was thorough, efficient and their clean up afterward was quite acceptable. I consider their work to be high quality and was very pleased with the outcome. As a result I would highly recommend E&R Schwarz Masonry Ltd. to anyone and would not hesitate to have them return for any future work on my home. Thanks very much Richard and crew.

"Highly recommended!"

Starting with the estimate and ending with the completed work, we were thrilled with E&R Schwarz. We had both of our chimneys re-done as well as a brick pier at the front of our house and they now look fantastic. Richard and his crew were very professional and their workmanship was superb. As an engineer, I was especially pleased to see the great attention to detail in the work. Thanks for the great work.

I had one chimney repointed as it was pretty much crumbling. Richard and his crew were there on time, were very considerate of my gardens, and did an excellent clean-up job. The crew did an excellent job on the chimney - it looks amazing! The price was very reasonable and Richard talked me through each step of the way. He took pictures to show me exactly what he was talking about and to show where I should be concerned. I have another chimney and when I need that one done I will definitely be calling E&R Schwarz Masonry Ltd. again!

"Service Excellence!"

Just when you thought this level of service did not exist anymore! Richard prides himself in a job well done and will not quote unless he actually gets on the roof of your home to assess the chimney. He will also take the time to explain everything to you and show you his concerns (at the time if you want to venture onto the roof with him!!) or explain them back on the ground! The quote was detailed, accurate and competitive. The respect for our home, our property and our neighbours was exemplary. It is with complete confidence and praise that I provide this review.

"Professional, knowledgeable, timely and effective"

We cannot speak highly enough of the service we received from E&R Schwarz Masonry Ltd. From the first time of contact to book an estimate until the completion of the necessary repairs to our “crumbling” chimney, Richard and his team demonstrated pride in their work. Richard was very knowledgeable presenting various options, creativity and a timeline for completion that was both realistic and achievable. Safety and respect for our property was evident as noted by the continuous cleanup of the area throughout the process. I would not hesitate to offer a reference or allow E&R Schwarz Masonry Ltd. to show others the work they completed for us. Thanks for a job well done and we wish you all the best in the future.

Our home is approx 50yrs. old & we knew when we purchased 9yrs. ago the chimney would need to be replaced. We had it patched 7yrs. ago but finally had it rebuilt. Richard and his crew were so professional. The brick matches perfectly! They protected our lawn, air conditioner and driveway. When they were finished you couldn't even tell anyone was here as the clean up was so thorough. The price was also very reasonable. This is a company that truly cares about their customers and the quality of their work. I highly recommend E&R Schwarz Masonry Ltd.
