Chris did a great job of building a set of front stairs for my 3 family in Somerville. He had to step in when I hired another mason that neglected to find out if a permit was necessary for the job and the build was held up for a month. Chris of Top Design squared away the snafu with the city, got the permit and built a beautiful set of brick and stone stairs. He was professional and does great work. He was quick and even fixed a small problem with s brick edging leading to the stairs that was not part of the contract but would have made the final job look unfinished.. not necessarily the cheapest but his prices are in the ball park without being over the top. Definitely fair pricing.

I highly recommend Top Design Masonry and Construction. We had a 70 year old chimney in need of repair work. The top 8 layers needed replacing, a new Flu was installed, other portions were repointed, 2 interior fireplace bricks were replaced and the outside was cleaned to remove the remnants of an old fibrous plant, along with acid washing to clean the entire chimney. The chimney now looks amazing! We could not be happier with the results. Chris O'Reilly and his team were professional, friendly, worked with us and were genuinely engaged in delivering a top quality result at a very fair price. All the work came with a 10 year guarantee also. I would not hesitate to use them again and am recommending them to our neighbors who have asked for their business information.

Top design masonry and co rebuilds my chimney. My old chimney needed to be taken down and a new one needed to be put in. Chris from the company was beyond helpful, he listened to exactly what I wanted and did as he said. Overall a very professional team and would highly recommend them When I first spoke to Chris he was quite prompt and responsive and thatâ s what drew me towards the company. After he came round he gave me honest feedback and a very competitive price. I got all the necessary paperwork which I needed. The service could not be faulted.

"The project was completed in two days, on schedule. The crew they show up on time, but they finished the project on time and were willing to reschedule a quick repair to damage from a neighbor. The completed project is a great improvement!

5.0 Stacey H. Dorchester Center, MA

I hired Top Design and Masonry Construction to re-point and waterproof my fieldstone basement. Chris gave me a really good price for the job and promised my satisfaction and a professional job. Originally Chris said the job would be completed in 2-3 days; however, it took 7 days of labor to complete with the 1 worker he had for the job. I rate them 5 stars, because not only does my basement looks wonderful-brand new, but Chris worked with me to ensure I was satisfied and all of my preferences were addressed. His worker, Alex, was very professional and respectful and also worked hard to complete the job to my liking. It's an A+job and well worth the wait for the results!

5.0 Sarah P. Quincy, MA

I am extremely happy with the work carried out by Chris. He was very easy to deal with and did a great job. He was extremely professional from the get-go. I would highly recommend the company. He came out on time and completed the work to a very high standard. I would be very happy to recommend him.

1.0 Victoria G. Reading, MA

The work that was done was very good.. BUT. Chris is the most unprofessional contractor I have ever had the displeasure of hiring. He came out to give me a quote for waterproofing and repointing work I needed to be done in my basement, then when I hired his base on that quote, he revealed that the quote he sent me was only for HALF of the work we discussed, and he was talking with his team, to get me a quote for the rest of the work. He never presented a contract or statement of work to sign at any point, and I never received a receipt or invoice--only the original (half) quote. Despite that, I paid him for the work his laborers preformed anyway, and he has been blowing up my phone 3-to 4 times per day because he is impatient to get his money and cannot wait for the standard time a banking transfer needs to clear--and somehow thinks I can wave a magic wand and make it go faster for him.

Top Design Masonry repaired my retaining wall. The wall looks great and Chris was very responsive to my emails and phone calls. I would hire them again.
