Looking for some help

Just wondering if there is anyone out there who want to do some brick work and restoration. I have an apartment building that needs some work, and since I dont do brick work I am looking for quotes.

If anyone is intrested send me a PM. I will reply to all PM's up until Friday, after that I will reply after the 30th, as the wife and I will be on our annual cruise.

Here are some pics of some of the work needed.

I know just enough about brick work to be dangerous......and to know that I shouldn't do it. I can say looking at those pics that is more than a simple repair. I learned long ago that actual brick is porous, and therefore should never be used in a place it can stay moist. At least one of your pictures show it with dirt up against it, which will trap the moisture in it, then let it freeze and crack/damage the brick.

Looks to me like there's some serious work needed to really make that a good long term repair, so plan accordingly.

You are absolutely right.... I too know very little about bricks, with the exception that when they fall on our hand it can really hurt. lol

I work full time for the company that owns this property, The current brick work is 25 years old, and we have done nothing to it since it was brand new.

I know this is no small job... I'm looking for some professional advice on the job, some quotes, and then someone to "get the job done"

That's a demo and rebuild, not a repair. I'd be more than happy to have a look at it and make some suggestions/quotes. I'll be up front though, we aren't cheap. Where is the job?

My wife thinks she's an extreme couponer now. She has this zip up file folder she carries with her now and she brings home every newspaper she can find to get coupons from. She signs up for everything online. I just went to put something in the linen closet to realize there was like 20 bottles of tide in there. For some reason I think this is costing us more then no coupons but whatever it seems to be a hobby for her now.

I understand it is a rebuild, and I also know its not cheap. The property is located in Barrie.

Do you do asphalt too.

I have another job, where I'm looking at repairing some pot holes on the property, where we are going to pave the area with hot asphalt laid in two lifts oh 50 and 40 mm. I am going to authorize this repair at a cost of 39,840.00.

If you do this kind of work and are interested, it might be worth your while to look at both jobs.

Let's have a look at it then. As far as the asphalt, we can do complete resurfacing, but not patching.

Just bought a house in Burlington. Winter was good. I got my work cut out for me here tons of pruning. Can use the Walker mower wont fit in the backyard and no where to park truck and trailer on lakeshore. I like the Maserati's the neighbor has.
