Year after year, season after season, the weather is beating your property. Rain storms, frost, wind, snow, you know the deal. The first line of defense against the brutal elements is your building's brick work. So, it's important to keep your property protected with the best in the business.
Customer's garage was slowly deteriorating from the bottom, so they asked us to repair the damage, also to prevent rodents from entering the property.
Evanston Masonry rebuilt the garage column to look like new again!
Above your windows and doorways, there is a structural member supporting the weight above it (the Lintel). If you see cracks in your walls coming from this area, you'll need us to replace the Lintel. If you don't, you may run the risk of moisture penetrating your building and creating even more damage and/or corrosion later.
Customer called with concerns of a family of mice entering their stairwell under their corroded picture window. Also, the lintel on the same window (pictured, left) was allowing water to enter the home.
Evanston Masonry rebuilt the customer's balustrade (pictured, right). The window was replaced with glass blocks to allow light and to give the stairwell an amazing new look! Rodent problem, gone.
Customer's window was allowing water to enter the property seeping into the interior walls (pictured, left).
Evanston Masonry rebuilt the customer's lintel (pictured, right). The window is now water-tight!
On flat or barrel-shaped roofs, the Parapet is what the roof is attached to. It starts from the roof and is built upward as a short wall. Over time, moisture penetration can cause this part of your building to "tip" or lean. We can coordinate with either your roofer or our roofer to ensure that your Parapet is secure for years to come.
Here, Evanston Masonry rebuilt all of the second floor masonry and replaced all of the lintels complete with the appropriate flashings. All of the problems were solved and the property was left with fabulous curb appeal!
Whether you are selling your home, or are a proud new owner, you may want to give your basement walls a different look. Just make sure your foundation is sound to avoid problems later.
Rebuilt the bottom 14 courses of the chimney in the basement.
Rebuilding Multi-Unit Frontage
Keeping our workers safe!
Dewey Ave., Evanston
This project was a total upgrade. We replaced defective lintels, rebuilt a section of parapet wall and replaced the front entry balustrade, power washed the frontage and all stone trim, tuckpointed the building 100% and replaced all windows. Now it looks as nice as it was the day it was built.

Corroded I-Beam & lintel
Here we removed the entire 100 foot long, four story frontage which consisted of a twelve-inch wall (3 full wydthes of brick), removed all of the vertical and horizontal structural steel while temporarily supporting all of the concrete decking. Following the demolition our crew installed all new structural steel, brick work, limestone and new thermally insulated windows. We set up a temporary heating system, worked through the winter and came in on schedule much to delight of the nursing home owner.
