Description

I am a certified chimney inspector and bricklayer mason. I pretty much do it all For chimneys I do cut and points rip down and rebuilds if needed. Install caps liners flues, And of course sweeps. I also do cut and points on stairs build walkways fix or build retaining walls, patios. Any type of masonry restorations, No job is to small for me from a crack in your foundation to a brick out of place. I am an owner operated business and have been in this industry for over 20 years. I don't think there's anything left that I haven't seen or couldn't fix. I do FREE QUOTES. And have the lowest prices around. I have property and liability insurance. Also, I am a licensed home improvement contractor. My license number is 200109 and is good until November 11, 2022. ...

Not only is Michael a THIEF but also a COWARD! I wrote a review back in May 2020 as he took our money & didn't complete the job. We filed a smalls claims court case & today was our court date. When I filed a complaint with Mass Attorney General office, he told them, he wanted his day in court. The SPINELESS, COWARD didn't show. What MAN doesn't SHOW HIS FACE? Since taking our money, there are 2 ad...

DO NOT hire Michael Alterio of MJMasonry! He is a scam artist. I agreed to sign a contract with Michael Alterio and paid him half upfront on 6/16/2021 with him promising to start the work that upcoming weekend. That began over 2 months of excuses and lies which became more and more far fetched as time went on. I eventually told him to return my money so I can get someone else to do the job and sin...

It went so well we asked him to come back to do a chimney sweep. Mike was communicative, prompt, fair and thorough. It was an absolute pleasure to do business with him- we HIGHLY recommend!!! Both services and visits went so well we plan on having him return (for a third time😉) to do a stone patio for us! I don’t think there’s anything he can’t or won’t do.... this guy gets to “Yes”... so refresh...

The last storm (2021/02/01) caused damage to the flashing / chimney interface. Mike immediately responded to our request for help and promised to repair the damage before the next storm. Well today (2021/02/06) it is all completed as he said it would be. He found the problem, corrected it and added a protective membrane to seal the chimney to the roof. It is a tidy job, performed well and I recomm...

We recently hired these guys to reconstruct a fireplace facade and hearth. While we have no complaints with the actual brick work, we found these guys to be so frustratingly idiotic that we wouldn’t hire them again even if they offered quality work for half the market value. I’m still not sure if our myriad complaints stem from dishonesty, laziness or genuine ineptitude on their end. I’ve dealt wi...

Really! You’re going to take a picture of the hearth base that wasn't even finished. I know it looks fine now! I was there to clean it up! You have the audacity to blame me for painting the inside of the firebox which is metal NOT part of the quote, it was a favor you asked me to do even after taking $1000 off the quote. You were well aware that we were coming in that day to shore clean the hearth...

He inspected the problem and returned the following day to repair the leaky roof before the rain returned. He shared pictures of the work that was done and provided a 10-year warranty.
