5TCB MasonryTCB MasonryReferred by a neighbor. Otto called back right away, came out the following day. Gave a very reasonable estimate, told me to hang on weather was getting colder. His crew came out next business day, did a fantastic job. Beat the weather and I couldnt be more happier. Thank you Otto and Lisa.
5TCB MasonryTCB MasonryThe brickwork foundation under our porch was falling out and some of the surrounding mortar was missing. Mr. Otto’s team made it look good again. Mr. Otto oversaw the work, making sure the work was done well, that the variegated colors of brick were placed aesthetically, that the original antique bricks were used as much as possible, that the new additions would blend in, and that the new mortar used would as closely match the original as possible. On a personal level, it was clear that Mr. Otto respects his wife, and I heard him require one of his young workers to speak respectfully when talking about their own spouse. I had heard what the worker had said, and the worker’s comment, although clearly not intended badly, would not help the relationship over time. Hearing Mr. Otto mentor the younger man and hold him to a healthy workplace standard impressed me as much as the handiwork did. Mr. Otto is someone to respect. I honestly wished I had more brickwork that needed tuck pointing so I could hire TCB masonry again.

Otto Szilveszter came to my home the same day that I called TCB, and he was immediately able to give me a very fair estimate. A few days later, Otto and his crew arrived to fix the problems. They were very courteous and professional, and I could not have been happier with the quality of their work. All of the bricks on the top third of my 70 year-old chimney had to be replaced, and I especially appreciated that Otto made the effort to find bricks that perfectly matched the existing chimney. As a homeowner it has often been difficult to find contractors whose work truly exhibits a caring attention to detail, but I was so pleased that Otto and his crew delivered the quality work that was promised. Once the job was completed, Otto''s wife Lisa made certain that the job site had been thoroughly cleaned and that all work had been completed to my satisfaction before accepting my payment. TCB proved to be a well run business that I would highly recommend.
5TCB MasonryTCB MasonryI have an over 70-year old stone wall that was in disrepair. Stones were broken to the point that we were afraid to power wash any longer. The cap on the wall had almost completely disintegrated. All of the grout had to be replaced along with some stones. TCB had all of the work done within 3 days despite the rain. It is beautiful. The workers were always on time and were very respectful. Neighbors walking by have commented on how beautiful the wall now looks. It has certainly added to curb appeal. There is more work that we are going to have them do next year on our chimney and the side walls of our drive way which are also deteriorating. their work looks great!
5TCB MasonryTCB MasonryI called TCB on Monday and left a message requesting an estimate to replace my old basement windows with glass blocks. Otto returned my call within 15 minutes. He came out on Tuesday to give me an estimate and I was lucky enough to have the glass blocks installed on Thursday. The guys did a great job. They put down tarps to cover my carpeted stairs and on the basement floor. I love the new windows. I did not get a chance to thank the two guys personally, so I would like to have Otto thank them for me. I would definitely call TCB again for any future repairs. Thanks again Otto for a job well done!
