“They were great. There's a little piece of concrete where the house comes down and meets the sidewalk. There's a little triangular bit of concrete that needs to be laid down there to keep water from seeking down along the foundation. That's the part they did there. I'd give them an A+. They were very thorough. They needed to remove old material. They could have very easily just shorted the job and not removed much material that was coming loose down there. They were very thorough and conscientious in their work. It was great.”

“They might have done a little work on the chimney. Three sides of my house needed just minor tuckpointing work and one side in the back maybe needed a little more. It's a fairly basic, common type of tuckpointing—filling in a little bit. That was it. I'd give them an A+ overall.”

Review by
08/14/2017

“They did a pretty good job. I'm pretty happy with it. Nothing really stood out as being terrific, but I did feel like they looked over the house pretty well, and they found the areas that needed to be tuck-pointed, and they handled it pretty well. I'd give them a B+.”

Review by
08/14/2017

“They were amazing. They did excellent work. They did a great job. They were very honest. Did exactly what they said they were going to do when they said they were going to do it. And I would use them again in a heartbeat.”

Review by

“There was a little problem the second time the work was done, just recently. There was a little area that needed attention, and they came and took care of it right away. It was on a wall. I would grade them a B.”

Review by
08/14/2017

“Affordable Tuckpointing did a good job, and they cleaned the area up after they were finished. I appreciated that. They did tuckpointing over a garage door and a corner of the house. I'd give them an A+.”

Review by
08/14/2017

“It was average at best. They had to come back a few times to fix some mistakes they had made. It was tuck-pointing on a back wall. I'd give them a C. Their customer service was good. They did come out.”

Review by

Review by

“Affordable  Tuckpointing Pros were wonderful. It was months ago, I honestly can't even think back that far, that's why we were moving. They were very professional; they did what they were supposed to do. The gentleman who came out and did the quote was wonderful. Absolutely no complaints.”

Review by
11/04/2016

“They  did work for me last year, Craig's the owner. I had a very positive experience. His people are professionals and do very good work. They're mostly union guys and they did union quality work. Everything was good. They did masonry work and repointed my whole house, it's a historical brick house, and they did an excellent job. Everything was done in a timely manner, and everything's held up really well. They actually extended my warranty beyond what they originally said. So far, so good. Everything looks good. I'd grade the overall experience an A.”

Review by
07/08/2015

“They sound familiar. I definitely had a positive experience, no issues at all. They were great, they were quick, and they did a nice job. They're quick, they were affordable, they didn't leave a mess or anything like that, and that's the best thing I can do, if we need anymore work, we're definitely going to be hiring them back. They did some tuckpointing for us, the exterior of the home, little places here and there, we own a mobile home. I give them a B+. It's hard to say because they had so much work to do in little areas, there were some little pieces of stuff, here and there, it wasn't too bad, but for the most part they did a good job cleaning up, the dust got into the window areas, and that wasn't cleaned.”

Review by
07/08/2015

“They structured things, they were punctual and had good timing, and they got the work done in the time frame that they expected. There was an issue that came up when I inspected the job, and they came right back and fixed it appropriately. I had good responsiveness from the office. I think they clean things up pretty good. All in all, I was very pleased with the job. It wasn't just a tuck-pointing job—they actually had to take a part of the chimney and rebuild it. I’d give them an A.”

Review by
07/08/2015

“They were able to schedule me quickly, they were very thorough in their explanation of the process, and their price was very fair. They did some tuck-pointing on my chimney as well as a rebuild of the chimney above the roofline. I chose them because of the price as well as the speed with which they could start the job. Other companies weren't able to start until later in the summer. I give them an A-.”

Review by
07/08/2015

“They showed up, they had a reasonable price, and they did a good job. They did some general tuck-pointing. I'd give them an A rating.”

Review by
07/06/2015

“They did a great job, and it was all good. It was very good—I would say it was excellent, and I would use them again.”

Review by

“It was really good, and it was a nice job.”

Review by
07/06/2015

“I did use them at one time. They had to come back two or three times. They did some brick work for us. It took three times, and they knew that they had to come back to fix it. I would grade them a C.”

Review by
07/06/2015

“They did work at my father's house. They covered it and tuck-pointed that. They came back out and fixed it, so they did a great job. I would give them an A. Their customer service was an A as well.”

Review by
07/06/2015

“I would describe the experience as positive. They tuck-pointed the things on my flat roof—whatever they're called. Their customer service was good. I would give them an A.”

Review by
07/06/2015

“I recall working with them, and they did a very nice job. It was positive. They did some tuck-pointing along the roof. I would tell my friends and family that they did a nice job. I’d rate them an A for their excellent work.”

Review by
07/06/2015

“I couldn't open my windows—they open out, and the sill had kind of tilted up. I don't know if it was from moisture underneath there, but Affordable Tuckpointing Pros came out and did a good job. I would describe their customer service as excellent. We're thinking about calling them back because we're having the same problem with another window. I would give them an A.”

Review by
07/06/2015

“I believe there was some work done on the pillars, in the front, so it was about a four-hour job. It looked good. The top of the wall was a bit of a curve like a wave, and the gentleman cut down some of that so that he could piece additional bricks to it and keep that curve pretty evenly balanced with the other as well. It came out very well, so we're happy with how it looks. I think there were two gentlemen that came out, and they were quite friendly. There was no problem understanding the details of the job. Later on one person came out, and I talked to him a little bit in Spanish, so we get along fine. I would definitely say it was a positive experience. I would give them an A- because I had to pick up a little bit of a broken off concrete around each site there, but they were phenomenal, there really wasn't a problem. It’s not an issue, I just picked up a little bit around there, that's all.”

Review by
07/06/2015

“After they left we found a lot of they did kind of a sloppy job and left a mess on our property and that was pretty dissatisfying. I didn't call about the mess. They offered to fix it but we had already fixed it by then. And then we called them because there was ice forming on part of the chimney and we were concerned and the guy said it's normal. But we still don't really know if it's normal because it's big chunks of ice coming from our chimney in the winter. I would grade them a C. There was a lot of debris in our gutters and marks on our gutter that can't be fixed. So they could have protected the side of the home a lot better than they did and cleaned up the mess that they made. And the tuck-pointing was a mess so there are a few issues with their work.”

Review by
07/06/2015

“They were great, really great. They actually did masonry work because we had brickwork that wasn't completed, and we were getting water at the house. They were able to scaffold, they did three sides to the house, and it was really, really, great. So he diagnosed it, he repaired it—quality workmanship. I would rate it as excellent. Outstanding service, the laborers were outstanding. I would give them an A+ in all dimensions. The office was fabulous, Chris, the owner, fantastic, and the laborers were great.”

Review by
06/30/2015

“They're right on with their pricing, they did a very good job, and they worked really good. There were a couple of spots they missed, and when I called, they came back and finished the job. They rebuilt a chimney for me and did some tuck-pointing on my brick home. I called them, and I liked the owner a lot. Actually, the owner came out and gave me an estimate, and I talked to him. He was booked up a lot with his work, so he promised the price that he initially gave me even though I waited until the spring to get the work done. I would give them an A; they were excellent.”

Review by
06/30/2015

“I thought they were very good, and they did an excellent job. They came out promptly, they gave a competitive estimate, and they were knowledgeable about the colors that they were going to be using; they even suggested some changes from what they had. They came out and did the job promptly, cleaned up after themselves—it was just an all around great job. I would recommend them to anyone. They did tuck-pointing on two places, and they completed both jobs on the same day. We got a free estimate, the board of trustees looked at all of them, and the prices were competitive. I think they had, by a smaller amount, a lower price, and they were able to come out sooner than the other company, so that's why they got the job. I would give them an A+.”

Review by
06/30/2015

“I love them. I had an extremely positive experience with them. They were on time, and they did the work like I requested. They just started and kept working until they were done. And they cleaned up after themselves, and it looks great. They took down about the top part of my chimney, salvaged the vintage brick, lined my flues, reconstructed the chimney and prepped the caps on, poured cap, concrete molding, that were on the top. I had three companies out to bid, they seemed like they were the most experienced, and they were in the middle of the pre-bid. I would give them an A+.”

Review by
06/30/2015

“It did end up working out in the end, but I had some challenges with them. There was some damage done, one of my windows got scratched, and we don't know how it happened, but it wasn't there when they started the job but it was when they left. They agreed to replace the glass, and when I sent them the bill, they didn't want to pay it. Other than that, they, on the final days, they cut half of a tree, they cut half of the branches off of a tree, and I don't know why, in our backyard. He told me that he'd replace the tree if it didn't survive, I'm not planning on landscaping anyway so I didn't bother, but the job itself was fine, and they really did make good on what they agreed to do. I wouldn't necessary right a review for them that was terribly positive, but it wouldn't be all the way negative. I would give them a B. I won't likely use them again.”

Review by
06/30/2015

“I did have a positive experience, by and large. If there's one thing I felt they could really improve on is returning their messages to customers. I called several times, there was no answer, left in the message, I never did get any response, so I just felt like it was no, there was no, return call coming my way. Eventually they did call me, get the work done, the work was satisfactory, so there's no issue there, it was just communication. They did some tuckpointing on the chimney. I think because she was able to give me a quote fairly quickly, actually the same day I called, and I thought the quote was pretty reasonable, so those two factors made the decision easy for me. It was at my daughter's house, I wasn't actually there, I have no reason to say it wasn't good but I'd say good. I would give them a B.”

Review by
06/30/2015

“It was a good experience. I like that they were able to come out quickly, that they were thorough in their work, and that they had it done quickly. They tuck-pointed the entire house. I looked at several companies, and after speaking with the owner, I felt like they would do a good job. I would give them an A grade.”

Review by
06/30/2015

“They were clean, they worked fast, they did the job properly, and they matched my brick perfectly. They did the chimney. We were trying to get two or three bids, and they seemed more reasonable and maybe a little more knowledgeable than the other company. I would give them an A+.”

Review by
06/30/2015

“They did a good job. They're quick at getting an estimate to you, they show up on time, the workmanship is really good, and their follow-up is really good. They did some brick repair, actually brick replacement, in the boiler room. I chose them for their responsiveness and prices. I would give them an A.”

Review by
06/30/2015

“It was an excellent job. I called them, they came in, they were on time, and they did the job. The experience was fine, I was really happy with it, they were affordable, they did a good job, they cleaned up well after themselves, and everything was done. They would be an A.”

Review by
06/30/2015

“I didn't really get to meet them very much, but I thought they did a good job. They had to tuck-point my concrete building that I own. It’s a commercial building, and it needed a tuck-point, so they tuck-pointed all the way around. They're more reasonable. They get an A.”

Review by
06/30/2015

“I wouldn't recommend them to anybody. They didn't do the job and I now have to hire another tuckpoint company. They were suppose to tuckpoint my whole house and I got bricks falling out in some locations that they didn't even address. And they said our house has to be sealed when they didn't even address all the tuck point. I would not recommend them to anybody oh an enemy. I found them on Angie's List, I would grade them a D.”

Review by
06/30/2015

“Their price was the best, they did some tuck-pointing on a building for me. It was the side, front of the building near the windows. I chose them primarily it came down to price. I would grade them a C. Well after they did the work there was some effervescence showing up in their joints. That means sodium was coming through in their mortar mix.”

Review by
06/30/2015

“I had a positive experience. The price was reasonable, they were on time, etc, etc. They did tuckpointing the chimney. I would give them a B-.”

Review by
06/30/2015

“They scheduled me very quickly, and the prices were reasonable. They tuck-pointed some bricks on my second story. They were located in my town. I think they’re grade-A.”

Review by
06/30/2015

“They were personable, showed up on time, and got the job done. It was a success. They bricked up a window I pulled out. It was a local company. They’re an A by me.”

Review by
09/25/2014

“The guy I dealt with was nice, he was a nice guy. They did some brickwork on my chimney and he cleaned out the chimney. I'd give them a B-.”

Review by
09/25/2014

“Well, they were on time, they did what they said they were going to do for the price that they quoted. They did tuckpointing. I'd say a B.”

Review by

“They messed up a couple of times and they had to come back and fix it. They did brick. I'd give them a B.”

Review by

“They were efficient, neat, and quick. I’d give them an A+.”

Review by
09/25/2014

“The owner genuinely cared about the service. They tucked and they did some tuckpointing and they did realignment of a chimney. I chose them just because of the reviews. I went off the reviews. I'd probably grade them as a B.”

Review by
09/25/2014

“They were fast and they cleaned up after themselves. They did —it's a brick building and they did the outside walls. They got a very high rating and I'm sure they were priced competitively. I guess I'd give them an A; I don't have any complaints.”

Review by
09/25/2014

“Affordable Tuckpointing Pros was really good. Chris was wonderful. He came out when he said he would, and he caught an issue by our front door that we hadn’t noticed. I would definitely recommend them. Everything they’ve done has been A+.”

Review by
09/25/2014

“I used Affordable Tuck Pointing. They did a fine job. The only issue was they did the job in the bitter cold of spring and it was not very pretty but they did the work. I would probably give them a B. I would recommend the company.”

Review by
09/25/2014

“The overall service and quality of work was excellent. It was window lentil replacement and brick repair. Masonry repairs and tuckpointing. They get an A for excellent.”

Review by
09/25/2014

“They did the job. They did it on time more or less. They did about three feet of new brick around the perimeter of the bottom portion of the house. I would grade them as a B.”

Review by
09/25/2014

“Affordable Tuckpointing Pros did two buildings for me. I used them three times last year. They do the work in a timely manner, they have the right manpower there, and they are willing to come out and discuss any inconstancies that may come up throughout the job, which is very key for me. They are very good; they deserve the best rating—A+.”

Review by
09/25/2014

“It was fine, not great but positive as opposed to negative is the best way to say it. Well, I mean, it was positive, no, it was one notch above neutral, so, positive range. They put a wood burning fireplace in, they replaced a couple of chimney's liners and did some tuckpointing. They finished the job. I would grade them a C+ or a B-.”

Review by
09/25/2014

“They did a great job. They were very straightforward about how everything was going to work, they showed up on time and really demonstrated a lot of professionalism in doing the work. They retuckpointed almost all of the foundation of our house. We just liked the person we met better than the other people we met. I'd give them an A.”

Review by
09/25/2014

“Well, they basically, actually came and did more than what they said they would do and didn't charge me any extra and I was very pleased with the work. Got no real complaints whatsoever. Little hard for them to match the color of the mortar in a couple places but, you know, that's—when you 're tuckpointing parts of a house that's 50 years old, that happens I think. So, I wasn't too concerned about that and it looks good. I'd give them an A.”

Review by
09/25/2014

“I'm not really happy with them, because it was an interior job and they ran over the grout or whatever between the stones—they ran over all my stones. I hand wash them all and they knew that to begin with. Then when I called them, they came out and didn't do much of anything, so then I called them again and they never returned my call. So, I wouldn't recommend them for interior work. I’d give them a D.”

Review by
09/25/2014

“Timeliness, they cleaned up after themselves quite nicely. They did all of the work that was requested. I just was pleased overall with the experience. I had tuckpointing repairs on the brick work on the outside of my house. This was my first time using them. I would use them again for additional services. I would give them a B. I would recommend them to my friends as well.”

Review by

“We're about to re-hire them actually, so yeah. They did what they said they would and they were decently priced. Looks good. They rebuilt a structure on our roof, the staircase, stairwell goes all the way up to the roof so it's got the door structure on the roof and that needed to be completely rebuilt and they did that. We liked the owner, he seemed knowledgeable and also the pricing was better than all the rest. I'd say A.”

“What I liked about my service from Affordable Tuckpointing Pros was that they took care of everything without me really having to be involved, and they got the job done. They fixed part of my chimney and put a new cap it. This was my first time using them, and I might use them again for additional service. The scheduling was a bit difficult, though—it took a long time to get the schedule to work.”

“Oh, it was the best. You know, the professionality of the worker and the price was awesome and the, you know, the workmanship and I couldn't ask for more. They ground and tuckpointed a wall for me about four feet high, maybe 30 feet long. I chose them because they were local. You know, being a local company I knew they were affordable. They come highly recommended. Oh, I'd give them an A+.”
