Wilkens Masonry is now in Hamilton!
Masonry in Hamilton compared to masonry in Toronto
Restoration masonry is both a uniform trade and an extremely varied endeavour. One of the main variables is that, from town to town, city to city, era to era, the masonry materials used in building homes can be very different. Hamilton and Toronto are very similar cities, so it is common to find the same materials had been used in the construction of the city’s original homes . Many of these homes date back to the late 1800s. Most of the bricks in Hamilton are the same as Toronto’s, standard Ontario-sized. The mortar colours found are also the same as well as the construction designs: stone foundations with brick construction on top.
Making the leap from Toronto to Hamilton
Wilkens Masonry Contracting has been based out of Toronto since 1977. As we have grown as a company, it seemed logical to expand. Hamilton has over 500,000 people and an extremely old selection of homes which will consistently require masonry restoration including brick replacement, repointing, parging, chimney repair/ rebuilds and much more. Attaining the appropriate materials is essentially as easy as it is in Toronto, and brick matches for almost any home can be found.
