Your home is an investment. Any changes you make to this investment—from changing doorknobs to restoring your masonry—will impact the value of your asset. Make the wrong choice and you might be out of more than just a few thousand dollars!
This is why, for any changes necessary, it’s important that you only go with a professional who’d know how to complete their project in due time.
With anything such as masonry, you can expect to spend a fair amount on just your restoration. However, just because this restoration is pricey, it doesn’t mean you have to spend a fortune on it.
There are plenty of professionals like Creative Masonry & Chimney who offer reasonable prices for a beautiful restoration project. However, if you’re not located in Connecticut, or simply want to do a bit of homework before you hire someone for your home; here are some things every homeowner should know.
If you’re getting a suspiciously cheap offer from a seemingly professional masonry contractor, run away! For any mason who has done work in the past, they’ll always charge a reasonable rate, at the very least. If you think the professional isn’t honest about their offer, ask for any references and designs they may have done. A truly experienced mason will be happy to offer photographs, evidence, anything to show the result of the work they’ve done!
Don’t make the mistake of thinking that all masons have the same level of talent, or the same skill set. Think of masonry restoration as a form of art restoration. You won’t hire an artist to restore a painting. You’ll hire a conservator. Always choose someone who has years of experience, an eye for detail and the right tools and techniques.
You can’t expect the job to be done in a day. With any such detailed project, achieving perfection takes time. So, find a mason who you’ll know won’t cut corners and will not rush to get the job done. Ask them about the materials (which can take a few weeks to obtain) and be realistic about the timeline.
