Ryan K. says, "I contacted Peter and is crew for a bid on building out a Pergola for my existing garage roof deck. I reached out to PorchFix because I had received other bids that seems extremely high. Peter responded promptly and asked for additional details on the project. I sent over a picture of a pergola that I was interested in his crew building out. He promptly sent over a bid with detail within 1 week which I felt was very reasonable. After agreeing on the contact his team scheduled a start date a few weeks out. He team started on the date they stated and actually built out the entire pergola in 1 day (where they estimated 2). The result was better than I had expected. His crew matched the design based on just a picture which I found impressive. Additionally the crew was very tightly and cleaned up and vacuumed. Overall verify happy with the work done and would use them again if a future project requires it."See more

Katie A. says, "Everything about working with Pedro was fantastic. He came to my home promptly and talked me through different options for my very old roof. I had six other roofing companies come out to give estimates and I knew as soon as I met Pedro that he was the person I wanted to work with. He is straightforward, direct and clear in his explanations of different options for repairing my roof. He understood about my budget and was able to offer an option that worked for me financially. The work was completed quickly and with great communication from Pedro. I've had a lot of work done on my 116yo house and Pedro is one of those rare workmen who is on top of everything, always on time, always communicating, and does excellent work. I cannot recommend Pedro and his crew highly enough."See more

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does brick repair cost?

On average, brick repairs will cost you around $500, with a range of between $350 and $600. However, be aware that a number of factors will have a large influence on this cost. First is the severity of the problem. Some brick repairs are as simple as applying new mortar — others require removing the brick entirely and fixing the substrate. If budget is a concern, contact several brick masons for cost estimates to find the best price in your area.

What does a brick mason do?

Brick masons, otherwise known as block masons or bricklayers, are professional builders of fireplaces, walls, houses and other structures using bricks or other rectangular blocks. Brick masons also work with terra cotta, concrete blocks and precast masonry panels. Part of their skill is working with mortar, which is used to bind the bricks together. 

What are the signs my stones or bricks need repairs?

The following are common stone and brick issues that will likely require a professional’s skills and expertise to fix:

  • Cracked bricks and mortar, including vertical corner cracks 
  • Brick erosion and degradation due to water damage 
  • Mortar deterioration
  • Bowed or bulging bricks
  • Spalled bricks, which are those that have chipped away or fallen off 
  • Efflorescence, or visible soluble stains on the surface

If you notice any of these signs, reach out to local brick or stone masons today.

Are cracked bricks a problem?

It depends. Sometimes, you might not require repair work — but you should still hire a professional to see if the cracks in your bricks are a serious threat to your home’s foundation and structural integrity.

Cracks (particularly larger cracks) can present a problem. If you have stair-step cracks or horizontal cracks, there may be an issue with your home’s foundation. Wider cracks can also allow water to infiltrate and cause damage from freezing and thawing. Insects can also enter wider cracks and cause more problems (and headaches).

Who do I hire for brick and stone repairs?

If you have brick and stone repairs that need to be done, search for masonry services near you. Masons are skilled tradespeople and specialize in building and repairing stone, brick, concrete, tile and other similar materials on structures. They work with these materials as well as the mortar that holds them together and are the pro of choice when repairs are needed. 

Hire the right mason based on the repairs you need — some masons specialize in working with brick, concrete, natural stone or other materials.

Does a deck increase home value?

A back deck may (or may not) increase your home’s value or attract potential buyers if you’re looking to sell. According to the Remodeling Impact Report: Outdoor Features, a new wood deck with an estimated construction cost of $10,000 recovered $8,000 for the overall recovery of 80%. Still, 9% of realtors suggested that home sellers should add a new wood deck before putting their home on the market, and 4% said this project has helped closed deals. 

The impact of adding a new deck will likely depend on its material (wood, composite, etc.) and where you live. For example, if you live in an area where people rarely spend time outside because of the weather, it’s reasonable to predict that prospective home buyers might not rate a deck highly on their list of must-haves when looking for a new home.  

When in doubt, consult with your realtor or a real estate expert to figure out if adding a new deck to your home is the right move to increase your home’s value. If it is, contact the best deck contractors near you to get free estimates and start planning your project.  

What does a stone mason do?

A stone mason builds structures like buildings, walls and piers out of stone. They may use natural stone, pre-cut stone, slabs or other types of stone to get the job done. Other jobs stone masons take on include laying walkways, curbs, pizza ovens and other structures or landscaping works. It’s common to hire a stone mason to perform certain parts of home building, such as an interior or exterior stone wall.

Can crumbling bricks be repaired?

Crumbling bricks, otherwise known as spalling bricks, can often be repaired. The process involves removing and repairing the damaged mortar, cleaning the surface and then also removing any damaged bricks to prevent the problem from spreading. Contact a brick mason near you to fix your crumbling bricks.
