"It is with deep satisfaction that I recommend Grady’s Painting and Plastering & Construction. Mr. George Grady is a skilled craftsman. He was hired to correct long neglected and extensive masonry and window issues on a large, beautiful Presbyterian Church built in the Civil War era in Philadelphia. The property was neglected with only minimal maintenance performed over the last 40+ years. The building was in severe decline and in need of stabilization and restoration on many fronts. Cracked ledge plates were chipped out and reestablished, internal walls damaged by leakage were broken out and repaired, brickwork was repointed and in severe cases reestablished to original strength and beauty. Leaks around the base of the building were addressed to stabilize deterioration of the foundation. Large rotted window sills under beautiful stained glass windows were restored after significant masonry reestablishment due to water damage under the rotted out sills. Broken and missing stained glass windows are in the process of repair and replacement. The process started with new metal frames cast by Mr. Grady. The new frames will hold clear painted replications of the original stained glass, also crafted by Mr. Grady. Regular windows all around the church and manse were also repaired and restored. Roof leaks were accurately identified and repaired. A sagging plaster ceiling has been torn out and restored. All this work was done by Mr. Grady alone or with an occasional helper. He worked with care, expertise and respect for the original structure. The results far exceeded our expectations and have injected new life into a building on the brink. This building, owned by the Presbytery of Philadelphia, now houses a new urban ministry in a newly gentrifying area of the city. We are happy to have had the good fortune to be connected to Grady’s Painting and Plastering & Construction by Service Magic."

They have cut back heavy overgrowth in back yard, trimmed lower tree branches, removed and graded our back porch area and installed new bricks where needed, built a brick path from the patio all around the back to the front stoop; they will do some bathroom upgrades; some electrical work. Reuben and his team do it all AND clean up after themselves! 5+ rating absolutely."

"Ernesto and his team did a excellent job in replacing our damaged deck with a new stone patio. Not only did the end product turn out beautifully but Ernesto quickly resolved unforeseen issues that only became apparent when the old deck was removed. He kept in constant communication and updated us with the job s progress. His team kept their tools organized and cleaned the area daily. Despite the constant rain Ernesto s team continued with the project whenever the sun would allow and they were able to complete everything in less than a week. I m truly impressed by the company s work ethic and have have already recommended them to friends and neighbors. Thanks again Ernesto for during such a great job!"

"American Exteriors and Masonry was great to work with! Carmen and Nina came through with every expectation and beyond as well as Ashley! They were all wonderful when you reached out to ask a question, make a request, or voice a concern, very quick to respond or came to the house to check it out same day! From the beginning their customer service is right on target being very responsive and taking quick action. The whole experience was very positive from negotiating price to work in progress to completion. They will work with you to get what you want reasonably. We had 3 projects: replacing a large 2 level deck, flagstone steps and walkway and installing a 2 section patio. Their crews specialize in decking or masonry so these guys know what they are doing. Any concerns or challenges, they consult with you making recommendations or coming up with alternative solutions so you can make the decision. Everyone including the crews were polite, cleaned up and finished work in a very reasonable amount of time. Most of all, we are very happy with how the deck, front steps and walkway, and the patios turned out, just beautiful! We highly recommend American Exteriors and Masonry for their quality work, wonderful customer service and great home improvements we are extremely happy with!! "

Uses for Masonry

Stone, bricks and manufactured bricks and block are used in masonry construction. It is applied in the full exterior finish on buildings or to create accent areas as part of the design. Concrete block is commonly used to construct the foundations of building. It is also used to build retaining walls in landscaping. Overall, it is a versatile and interesting material for architectural design in siding, fireplaces, patios and walkways.

  • Bricks. Brick is made from fired natural clay. It comes in hundreds of colors and a variety of finishes.
  • Stone. Hard, less porous stone is the best option for masonry construction. It lasts a lifetime and is available in numerous styles.
  • Manufactured Brick and Stone. Cement, natural aggregates and iron oxide pigments are used to manufacture realistic brick, block and stone that is much lighter in weight. It is available in hundreds of decorative finishes.

Pros

  • Masonry is non-combustible and therefore fire resistant.
  • Exterior walls withstand decades of inclement weather, extreme temperatures and U.V. rays from the sun.
  • Masonry offers superior soundproofing, blocking noise better than any other building material.
  • Your home is termite-free since there is no wood for the vermin to eat.
  • Masonry does not rot, which means a significant reduction in mildew and fungus between the exterior and interior walls.
  • Concrete block stores heat so your home stays warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer, reducing the cost of your energy bills.
  • Masonry is recognized as a "green" product since it does not deplete natural resources such as timber.
  • Insurance companies offer a discount on home insurance premiums because masonry provides increased security, fire and termite protection.
  • There is virtually no maintenance involved, and your masonry will remain intact with minor repairs for decades.
  • Due to the fact that homes built with masonry are maintenance free and high quality, they have a better resale value on the real estate market.

Cons

  • Masonry costs more than other building materials and due to the weight, it has higher delivery costs.
  • Brick and block construction needs time to fully dry between intervals, which increases the building time and labor costs.
  • Masonry is a form of "wet" construction so it cannot be done in extreme high or low temperatures or it loses structural integrity.
  • There is a risk for settlement with this type of construction, causing cracks in the mortar and masonry materials.
  • If the mortar between the masonry is applied haphazardly it leads to problems inside the cavity wall that allow dampness to enter your interior walls.
  • Masonry is a porous material and therefore prone to molding and damage from ice expansion in humid climates.
  • Masonry is very heavy and increases the stress load on the foundation of your home.

What can I expect during the masonry work?
