Bill and his associate did a very good job in brick pointing, sealing and caulking on both the front and back of my rowhouse in Holmesburg. I would highly recommend him to my friends and family.

We were having difficulty finding a mason who would take our job: brick pointing and repairs of two indoor walls. Bill gave us a reasonable quote, kept in touch, and gave us updates throughout the process. He and his team did a nice job on all our requested work. He was always on time, polite, reliable, and in touch. I would highly recommend Bill and would hire him again if I have additional masonry needs.

Bill is a skilled brick pointer. I would hire him again if I needed his services. Polite and conscientious. Left everything the way he found it. Cleanup was thorough and amazing. Thank you Bill!

Bill Keown earns the highest recommendation. With every part of the job, Bill exceeded our expectations. He communicated well, was on time, cleaned up perfectly, was respectful and overall a good guy. Even our neighbors commented that Bill was courteous and respectful of everyone. And of course (ha), the brick pointing was beautifully done and restored our house for another 100 years. Thanks Bill!

Review by in Philadelphia, PA
I was placed in quite the predicament when the original Brick Pointers (Bonlla's Masonry) I hired cut out my entire back house out and then disappeared with my $ never to return. My house was at risk of collapse due to missing mortar and about 15 bricks taken out and off the top of the house. it was a nightmare. About 2 weeks after I was ditched I looked into HOMEADVISOR as seen on TV. This is where i found Bill. He is a great Pointer and so are his guys. He is fair to both his customers and his employees. Mr. Keown is a Decent Man with Decent Values. You would love the choice you made if you choose him. The weather will let you down before he does. If need be I would definitely hire him again and again. Thanks Crew!!! And sorry all this happened in the coldest of days. You all are troopers!

Bill was very courteous and respectful. He was on time and kept in contact with me whenever there was a change in schedule. He caulked a joint along the side of my house in the back. He did a good job. I would recommend him gladly.

Review by in Philadelphia, PA
I contracted Bill because of an issue I had with some crumbling mortar in the stonework of my house. Birds were getting in, and that was my concern. Bill did a very comprehensive job tucking and pointing all of the stonework around my entire house. In addition Bill repaired a few areas where some face stone has fallen from the house. The end result is that Bill exceeded my expectations, and made my whole house look much better. Very pleased with the appearance of the work, and no more worry about birds getting in either.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.
