What Services Do Masons Offer?

Masons specialize in a variety of residential and commercial projects involving brick, stone, or concrete. At Jamar Masonry & Restoration, our experienced team offers a range of services, including chimney repair and replacement, tuckpointing, brick restoration, lintel repair and replacement, and chemical cleaning for brick and stone surfaces.

In Chicago, where extreme weather can take a toll on buildings, brick and stone masonry remain popular choices for their durability and resistance to rot and insects like termites. With minimal maintenance, these materials can last for years and are less prone to swelling, denting, warping, or splintering compared to other construction materials.

Our wide range of services

meet your needs

While masons typically work on new construction projects such as laying foundations and framing, they also play a critical role in repairing aging buildings and homes in Chicago. At Jamar Masonry & Restoration, we offer a wide range of services to meet your needs, including:

  • New construction assistance
  • Layout, framing, sheathing, and roofing services
  • Cutting openings in walls, ceilings, and floors
  • Tear-down and rebuild of chimneys
  • Erecting sound barriers for homes and buildings
  • Enhancing the thermal mass of your home to reduce energy consumption
  • Tuckpointing and repointing brick surfaces for improved aesthetic appeal and structural integrity
  • Trust Jamar Masonry & Restoration for all your masonry needs in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs.

Tuckpointing & Repointing

Pointing services, including tuckpointing and repointing, are critical for maintaining the structural integrity and aesthetic appeal of brick surfaces. At Jamar Masonry & Restoration, we offer both services to help you protect your home or building.

At Jamar Masonry & Restoration, we understand the importance of timely and high-quality pointing services. Ignoring damaged walls can lead to bigger structural and engineering issues, resulting in significant costs down the road. Trust our team to provide expert tuckpointing and repointing services to help you maintain the value and integrity of your home or building.

Repointing involves

Repointing involves removing damaged mortar between bricks and replacing it with fresh mortar to shore up the walls and restore the surface to its original engineering strength. Weak or missing mortar can lead to water damage and other structural issues, making timely repointing essential.



Tuckpointing, on the other hand, is primarily an aesthetic service designed to enhance the appearance of brick walls. The process involves altering the appearance of the mortar joints between bricks, making them appear smaller, and applying colored mortar to give the wall a cleaner, more cohesive look.


Popular Choice

While tuckpointing can improve the structural integrity of brick walls, its primary purpose is aesthetic. However, it remains a popular choice among homeowners who want to streamline their home design or create a smoother looking surface for exposed brick.

Our Chimney Services

Chimney Repair Services In Chicago

Don't take chances when it comes to repairing your chimney. While it may be tempting to save money by hiring amateurs or attempting repairs yourself, it often results in incomplete or sloppy work that may require starting over again. This can be costly in the long run, and may even put your safety at risk. Trust the job to a skilled mason who can guarantee a job done right the first time and save you money in the long run.
In Chicago, chimneys endure harsh winters, strong winds, and industrial pollutants. This can cause significant wear and tear on your chimney, resulting in damage to the bricks and structure. A professional mason can restore your chimney quickly and economically, often with simple repairs such as repointing, tuckpointing, or replacing missing bricks.
When you choose a professional masonry service, you can be confident that your chimney repair will include attention to the smallest details. Services may include replacing the chimney cap, installing or repairing dampers and fans, repairing or replacing chimney crowns, installing chase caps and covers to keep moisture and debris out of your factory-built chimney, installing or replacing chimney liners, and maintaining the firebox and smoke chamber. For more extensive damage, we also offer complete chimney tear-down and rebuild services.
Don't wait until it's too late. Contact us today for a consultation and see how we can restore your chimney to its full potential.

We're Skilled

Lintel Repair

At Jamar Masonry & Restoration, we know that lintels are an essential component of your building's structure. These steel frames provide the necessary support for masonry around doors and windows, ensuring the walls remain sturdy and safe. Our expert masons can repair or replace your lintels, providing you with peace of mind.
Many lintels in Chicago have exceeded their expected lifespan and require replacement to avoid catastrophic consequences. Damaged lintels can cause masonry to collapse, weaken the wall structure, and fail to support the intended load. At Jamar Masonry & Restoration, we offer lintel inspections to evaluate the condition of your lintels and recommend the best course of action.

We're Experianced

Lintel Replacement

While lintels are primarily used to provide additional support where necessary, they may not always be load-bearing. If your lintel is strategically placed and crucial to the structural integrity of your building, it must remain in place. However, if it is not load-bearing, it may be removed without compromising your building's safety.
If your home or office currently has a lintel that needs replacement, building codes in your municipality will likely require a new lintel to be installed. Failure to do so can result in costly structural damage within a few years. Investing in a professional masonry service upfront can save you money in the long run and ensure your building remains safe and stable. Trust Jamar Masonry & Restoration to provide the highest quality lintel repair and replacement services.

Brick & Stone Chemical Cleaning

Chemical cleaning of brick and stone can provide a stunning transformation to an older building or home by revealing its original colors. Due to Chicago’s industrial pollution, every building is affected, and regular cleaning and maintenance are required to restore the curb appeal of your property.

Fortunately, there are many environmentally friendly chemicals available for the job. Masons can help you select the right chemical for the job, which is then applied to the substrate and allowed time to set up. Unlike sandblasting, this process does not strip the skin of the brick or stone, preserving the masonry’s structural integrity.

Power Washing

Power washing is another option for removing algae growth, stains, grime, mold, and other pollutants, making it ideal for regular maintenance. However, loose or improperly applied mortar cannot withstand the pressure of power washing. Therefore, it's essential to schedule repointing services if the mortar is crumbling.

In summary, Tuckpointing and masonry services in Chicago can help you maintain your brick and stone, increase your home's curb appeal, strip off layers of grime, restore your brick and stone, and boost your property's value.

Brick & Stone Cleaning

How often should you get your brick and stone cleaned?

The frequency of brick and stone cleaning can vary depending on factors such as the location, climate, and level of pollution. In general, it is recommended to have brick and stone cleaned every 1-5 years, with more frequent cleanings in areas with high pollution or exposure to natural elements. It is important to have regular inspections to check for any damage or erosion in the joints and address it promptly to prevent further damage.
