What Our Customers Are Saying

Rob, thank you for the excellent work at our 6-flat in West Rogers Park. The rebuilt parapet walls are beautiful. Our building looks better than it has in probably 80 years. We appreciate how well you explained our building's condition, and discuss how best to restore it to its original state of pristine integrity. We are very appreciative of your company's work—it has been well worth the investment." D. Rosenberg
West Rogers Park, Chicago

Brent, your quick response and your team's expertise are the reasons why we keep coming back to AAA-1 for this kind of work. Really appreciate it!" N. Lagerfeld, Board President
Mansions of Leland Hall Condominium Association, Chicago

AAA-1 Masonry & Tuckpointing completely rebuilt two parapet walls — 283 feet — for our condo association. We were worried about the large limestones that needed to be removed to do the work, but they did not break or damage a single stone. Mirek the foreman and the crew were on time, friendly, professional, and cleaned up after themselves each day. I didn't receive a single complaint from the owners of the building about the crew or the project. Our structural engineer said the work was exceptional. My contact Frank Kruk was great to work with. Thank you for everything!" M. Mesinovic, Property Manager
4300 Marine Drive Condominium Association, Chicago

Dan and Luke were amazing to work with! Communication was clear and consistent throughout the project, and they were willing to go above and beyond to help us perform water tests to determine the source of water penetration in our condo building. Would happily work with AAA-1 Masonry & Tuckpointing again." J. Pellino, Lake View, Chicago

Extraordinarily pleased and happy with AAA-1 Masonry since the first point of contact. Called in and was set up with an appointment for a proposal promptly. Alex was very knowledgeable, informative and detailed in explaining what needed to be completed. The work was completed by crew chief Joe and his team did an excellent job! Will definitely recommend and stick with AAA-1 Masonry for any other work needed for my home!" F. Gonzalez
Portage Park, Chicago

One of the best masonry companies around. I have used them many times over the years as a property manager at many of my buildings. They just completed a large project for me in the West Rogers Park area that lasted multiple weeks and the crew couldn't have been better. They were on time, friendly and cleaned up after themselves. I didn't receive a single complaint from the owners in the building about the crew. The work completed on the parapet walls was exceptional and the building looks fantastic. My representative Brent Moore is knowledgeable, responsive and knows the business. If you are looking for a great team to work with contact Brent and AAA-1 Masonry & Tuckpointing. I highly recommend them." C. Blatt, Chicago

Rob, the work is truly beautiful. Please tell each of the gentlemen on the crew how grateful we are for their great skill, highly conscientious work, and unflagging courtesy. Bravo to the crew! Many thanks." J. Brennan, Ravenswood Manor, Chicago

Thanks for your great work on this job—everything looks terrific, and the work was done better than on time, done neatly, with minimal disruption, and the design of the brick looks phenomenal. We couldn't be happier and I am so glad we worked with you on this project." S. Goldenberg
Lakewood Courts Condominium Association, Lakeview, Chicago

We have received extensive positive feedback about the quality of work at our Church. Your team came in, minimized interruption, conducted the work professionally and with quality, and then broke down and cleaned up with no evidence that they were ever there! We are looking forward to the next phase of the project and cannot wait to continue working with you again." W. McClain
Pilgrim Lutheran Church, Lakeview, Chicago

I had several critical brick issues affecting our home through deteriorated bricks. I had many roofing and tuckpointing companies attempt to fix this issue with no success. When Dan Kruk evaluated the same areas, he identified the issues and presented a solution. He welcomed and answered all my questions. The company's coordination was excellent! The masonry team and materials arrived as scheduled, work was performed with respect for my time and property, and they even repaired damaged areas on the chimney and other areas without hesitation. I am very pleased with their service. Now the weather elements stay on the outside of my home where they belong." Gwendolyn Carr, Oak Park, Illinois

Rob - thanks again for all your help and guidance today. As a first time owner and HOA co-president the advice was much appreciated!" B. vonHalle
1714 W. LeMoyne Condominium Assoc.
Wicker Park, Chicago

Two tall brick privacy walls needed to be fully replaced and an additional wall required significant masonry work. Robert throughly assessed this project and determined what was needed, even beyond the masonry work. He searched extensively until he found bricks that so closely match my house they look interchangeable with the original bricks. The crew was a pleasure to work with, clearly took pride in their work and cleaned up immaculately. I have received many compliments from our friends and neighbors regarding their craftsmanship. It is fun to sit in my patio and enjoy my new beautiful walls thanks to AAA-1 Masonry." P. Northrop, Hyde Park, Chicago

Their professionalism and reliability are impressive. The office staff has been great to deal with and project manager Chris Teng anticipated issues and offered good solutions." J. Fishman, Pilsen, Chicago

I can’t say enough positive things. I engaged AAA-1 to perform tuckpointing and masonry repair on a 100+ year old graystone. I was very happy with their professionalism and high quality work. I am grateful for the responsiveness of the project manager, Dan Kruk, from the proposal process through execution, and the highly skilled masons that made this experience exceptional. The work and positive experience was worth every penny." L. Sanabria, Ukrainian Village, Chicago

I wanted to let your company management and owners know that I am extremely pleased with the results of AAA-1's work on my building. I fervently wish that I had been able to contract AAA-1 from the beginning and avoid all of the headaches that I had to endure." B. Bushemi, Albany Park, Chicago

Owner Robert Reese loves his craft and it shows. He's thorough, knowledgeable, and easy to work with. His crew squeezed in our emergency work and demonstrated great craftsmanship. 10 out of 10!" M. Cappozzo, Lake View, Chicago

Great experience with your company in waterproofing and maintaining my masonry house in Bucktown. Dan was always responsive, easy to work with, knowledgeable, and excellent with planning, execution, and results. Quotes were reasonable, work was done in a timely manner, and budget was respected. AAA-1's experience and expertise gave my family peace of mind. Thank you!!!" S. Hoxie, Wicker Park, Chicago

Your crew did a fabulous job on our home and left the work area cleaner than when they started!" M. Jurichko, Evanston, Illinois

My property management company uses AAA-1 for all our larger jobs. They use top notch materials and do top notch work, with excellent fit and finish. Our roofer even commented that they do the best work. If you're looking for cheap and dirty fix this may not be the company for you but if you're looking to treat your masonry buildings correctly and hope to get another 100+ years out of them then Frank is your guy." J. Shintani, Lincoln Park, Chicago

Rob was so helpful in helping me understand the job of repointing our brick walls and rebuilding our brick. Jerry and crew did a fantastic job of extracting old mortar and repointing the masonry of our 2-story building. We received compliments from our neighbors on the work that was done and how clean the finished work looks. We love it as well. I was impressed with their professionalism and high-quality workmanship. I would recommend AAA-1 Masonry to anyone." R. Briatta, Elmwood Park, Illinois

I was impressed with AAA-1 Masonry from start to finish. They completed a rebuild of the parapet wall on our 100-year-old condo building. We talked to many different companies but AAA-1 was the most professional, ethical, communicative, and comprehensive by far. Frank and his team really know old buildings. They were able to re-use a lot of the original brick, choose the right mortar and match the colors perfectly. I’m so glad we went with them." N. Hand, Andersonville, Chicago

Thank you, Frank, from the bottom of my heart for your quick attention given to my chimney repairs, and thank you for your honesty. I will certainly recommend you to my friends." T. Bacso, Lakeview, Chicago

Wanted to drop you a line to say how beautiful the brickwork looks! Oscar and I are very pleased. You and your firm do such great work! We would never go anyplace else for our masonry needs." L. Orellana
Edgewater Glen, Chicago

Robert is a true professional and working with him has been nothing but a pleasurable experience. He is extraordinarily knowledgable about his craft and has a sharp eye for all things masonry. He was careful, measured and reasonable in his diagnosis and proposals and he was responsive to our questions and concerns." A. Groden, Glencoe, Illinois

In addition to the neatness of the work, I was really impressed with how immaculately tidy they left everything. Not always the case with contractors, I can assure you! I'll be mentioning that in my recommendation on Facebook..." H. Barnfield, Wrigleyville, Chicago

Many thanks to Chris and the team for a job well done." E. McManus, Lake View, Chicago

Dan is literally the most professional contractor I've ever worked with. His team did a full parapet restoration (inside and outside brick) of our 9 unit condo. They were very thorough, careful in the work, and considerate with setup, clean up and follow up. They even checked in with each resident post-work to resolve any concerns or issues. I would fully recommend AAA-1 as highly as possible." Eric S., Lakeview, Chicago

Just had our first board meeting since the parapet wall work - everyone was VERY pleased with your team (professionalism, quality of work, attention to detail, follow through, etc). I wanted to personally thank you again for being such a trustworthy and professional partner." E. Sugar, East Lakeview, Chicago

AAA-1 Masonry did exceptional work. Our project manager, Brent, worked tirelessly with our condo board. The project was completed according to our contract and the work was of the highest quality. I can recommend AAA-1 Masonry without hesitation." E. Downs, President
Cambridge Briar Condominium Assoc., Lakeview, Chicago

The AAA-1 staff did a great job repairing the loose bricks and caulking the concrete step and even the door sill. Thank you!" J. Sharpe, Evanston, Illinois

I want to commend you and your workers for the excellent job they did last week. They were all so professional and the job site clean up was great." C. Corrales, West Town, Chicago

I would never have another masonry company touch my building!!! :-)" L. Briatta
Wicker Park, Chicago

Mark and I couldn't be happier with the work done by AAA-1. In fact, our entire experience was rather like a fairytale. We appreciate your exceptional expertise, and thank you for your integrity and conscientiousness." Janet Dembski

Just checked the alley parapet wall and met some of your crew who were finishing up for the day. Man do they do great work and are making fantastic progress! Thanks!!" Bob von Halle, President
The Gaertner Condominium Association, Lincoln Park, Chicago

The quality of your crew is excellent but what I prize the the most is your willingness to work within our budget to identify and address the most critical areas of our building before they create a more expensive problem. You have been an excellent partner in maintaining our building in peak condition." M. Howell, Board Member
South Hyde Park Boulevard, Chicago

I am extremely satisfied with the entire project. Owner, Rob, was a pleasure to work with and the work crew was terrific — punctual, polite and terrific attention to detail. Diligent management of change orders and fair pricing. I would not hesitate to recommend." Dave D., Lakeview, Chicago

I would never do brick work in Chicago without talking to you first." D. Seidman, River North, Chicago

Seriously, thanks for the care taken and clean up your crew provides, I only wish all of our contractors did the same!!" K. Walsh, Treasurer
Santa Maria Condominium Association, Oak Park, Illinois

Thank you for the excellent workmanship on our project! Thank you, also, for your team’s professionalism and meticulous attention to fixing any issue that they found. Our many neighbors were very complimentary. It was clear that your team gave us the same effort and attention that they would have given to their own property." Joshua Mou, River West, Chicago

You and your crew are great, and I can always trust that it’s being done right!" Aimee Michel, Community Manager

Ms. T. Brown, Deputy Director, Family Matters
East Rogers Park, Chicago

I am proud of the work that your men are doing, and we agree your approach is the best path forward." Warner Nelson

A special thanks to Dan and his crew who did quality work in a timely fashion; were friendly and accessible; protected our building and courtyards as much as possible; and cleaned up thoroughly." Mrs. Lynise Dziedzic, Treasurer
Sheridan Shore Courts Condominium Association, Chicago

I have dealt with many contractors, or folks who claim to be contractors, over my years. You are one that I will always trust." Jeff Oechel

Thank you for doing such a nice job at our house with the new chimney. I really appreciated the fact you provided a clear list of tasks to complete, arrived and finished on the days you said you would, and communicated exceptionally well throughout the entire process. It was refreshing to do business with such a nice and thoughtful person as yourself." Dave Seidman, Chicago

My heartfelt gratitude to you and your dedicated expert crew of masons. Your performance over the past two months reaffirmed my belief that your team was the right choice." Mrs. Susan O'Connor
Glencoe, Illinois

Hats off to you, Rob, and your team of expert masons. You corrected and repaired my aging masonry building, making things look like new and more importantly water tight. I no longer worry about the next big rain storm. The men were so professional, put me at ease, and left me without any clean-up." Mary Ross, Elmwood Park, Chicago

As always, I enjoyed speaking with you yesterday, and I continue to feel that I learn something new every time I speak with you! Thank you." Brenda Teaster

Lakeview, Chicago

Alex and his team did an amazing job. The work was beautifully and meticulously done and they matched the brick color very closely to the existing surrounding bricks. In addition, we were in a huge hurry and despite their 4-6 week backlog, they were able to fit us into the schedule right away with an opening that came up. I would highly recommend AAA-1." Jennifer Seuring, Roscoe Village, Chicago

The compliments keep pouring in. These are not just ordinary masons; these guys really put their hearts and souls into this project and the results prove it." Jerry Skowronski
Facility Manager, OTTO Engineering, Carpentersville, Illinois

From beginning to end, I felt Rob's crew knew what they were doing. They were fantastic — clean, diligent and trustworthy. I felt they cared about the end product and took an interest in pointing out issues so I could decide how to handle things. I have referred them to many." J. Wingren
Lincoln Park, Chicago

They were prompt and professional. The wall looks beautiful. I cannot see the difference between the wall that was tuckpointed and our neighbor's wall." Sue Levins
