Wayne came out to inspect whether my chimney was leaking, and he did a thorough assessment of that siutuation. When it was determined that water was coming in from some bad caulking, I eventually decided to go with Mikway. I'm satisfied with the work (no leaks so far), and Wayne was very friendly and professional.

We hired them to fix a brick wall and downspout to prepare our home for sale, while looking at that he looked around the home and suggested other areas that needed attention. Since we were selling, a home inspector would likely comment on the areas that would need to be fixed. We saved time (and likely money) getting it all done ahead of time. He kept price and quality in mind and would definitely would use again and refer to others for the quality work.

Wayne was knowledgeable, courteous and thorough. He also kindly accommodated my schedule. He did an outstanding job. I highly recommend him for this and similar work.
Description of Work
Our basement egress window had multiple cracks and needed to be replaced. However, the window was 50+ years old, nonstandard size and required masonry for the custom job. He came recommended by Well Experts and US Waterproofing who also uses him.

This was planned for early May but delayed to the end due to weather. Everything seemed to be going according to plan until a hairline crack appeared. The sod was never installed because Wayne could not find good sod in the area. This was 10 days after project was finished. Wayne came the next day to fil the crack and extend line in the patio. Unfortunately, the repair is very obvious in the otherwise beautiful patio. Considering the amount paid we expected a better outcome. The original estimate was $8860, Final cost was $12058. We had to pay to have the a/c disconnected and removed. Wayne offered to split the cost. Unfortunately, this was during our first hot spell. This was not included in the estimate. When I asked about the a/c unit, Wayne said that they would suspend the unit leaving us with a/c. Wayne originally offered a refund of $450, but several days later came over to tell us that he decided against doing this because he "worked hard" and "was proud of the job " he did. In addition, we told him to forget the sod.
Description of Work
Removed patio and two sets of stair/stoop. Replaced with new patio and two new stoops. One step down from patio to back yard. Two flower pots were constructed and sod was to laid.

Everything went well. The area was cleaned up everyday and they were mindful of not interrupting our daily routine. The workmanship was superior, they didn't miss a thing, any joint that needed cleaning out had all the loose mortar removed before re-pointing. After pointing, all the bricks were cleaned up and it looked great, really gave the house a nice face lift. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Mikway, they have all the right equipment and know how to use it.

After completing the work, Wayne suggested that we should get a stainless steel chimney insert, which after some research and talking to other professionals, is pretty much a scam, and additionally would require undoing the work he had just done on the chimney. The bigger reason for the low grade, however, was because we also had him look at our front steps/porch and asked for a quote on repair or rebuild, since Wayne had previously rebuilt our neighbors, and she has pretty much the same house. Off the cuff, Wayne quoted $17,000. We delayed another year and then contacted a highly-rated mason on Angieslist, Hynek, and his quote came in less than half of that. Needless to say, that was much more in our budget and the work was done expertly and on time.

Wayne did a great job removing and rebuilding our chimney. The team was prompt and worked early in the morning to avoid the heat of the day. They did a very nice job, and also recommended a roofing company to redo part of our roof that was right next to the chimney. They worked well together. The job looks nice and gets comments on by neighbors and the old owners. We would highly recommend him.

Still waiting for a chimney damper to be fabricated, but otherwise the job went smoothly and reasonably quickly for all that was done. They were also able to start the job one week earlier than originally estimated.
Description of Work
What began as a service call for tuckpointing turned into a much larger job: the chimney had to be rebuilt, there was leaking down the chimney to the basement, and the gutters needed to be replaced. Decided to have some exterior painting done at the same time. The crew was polite, prompt, thorough, and very professional. The workmanship was very impressive. Not only did they perform the work as discussed they were exceptional in the manner in which they cleaned up at the end of each day. I would recommend without hesitation.

Wayne is the owner. He came out right away and took a look at it. He quoted me a price and explained to me what needed to happen. He was amazing. He used the same old brick. He took the old brick and used it. He went to the city and picked up the material that he needed to better match my house with no extra charge. He got it done on time. When he was done, he asked me to tell his guys that they did a good job. He is really professional. He rebuilt my chimney for me. Other people that were working on my house were really impressed with his work. The only thing bad was that he was a pushing me to do something that I didn't want to do. He is definitely a keeper though. He is meticulous as well. He really cares about the work he does.
