I’ve had a number of masons work on my house over the past 10 years and Craig and his team are head and shoulders above the rest. From the initial consultations with the Heritage Committee, through to the end result I was impressed at every step. The planning, communication, quality of the work, the attention to detail, and the timing were all first rate. I’d give Edgewater my highest recommendation.
Our company contracted Craig and his masons to assist us with the “Big Dig 2” in Kingston’s downtown. The contract had to be completed within a very tight deadline, with many unknown structural/masonry issues only becoming apparent as the excavation occurred. Craig and his masons were able to mobilize quickly to our site to infill hidden coal chutes, repair historical foundations, or repair the building facades that were damaged during the construction process. His timely intervention in these matters allowed the finished streetscape to continue. Craig and his masons worked in less than ideal conditions with very tight deadlines, and yet they managed to complete the work on time without sacrificing quality of workmanship! I would highly recommend them to others in our team and look forward to working with them in future construction/reconstruction contracts!
Craig has lived up to superb recommendations of the heritage stone masonry staff at Algonquin College. Readily understanding the needs for architectural integrity of an 1856 stone farm house, Craig has done a masterful job in the reconstruction of walls, repair of crumbling facades, and final finish of mortar to stone. His trustworthiness, flexibility, and honesty make him an ideal candidate to have on site.
We are pleased to offer a recommendation for Edgewater Stonemasons, the work they completed for the City of Kingston Veterans Memorial walls, was executed with care, precision and a caring attitude. It was refreshing to see relatively young , highly skilled and trained masons representing the new generation of skilled craftsman. I appreciated that Edgewater utilized a blend of ancient and simple techniques to move the large limestone and granite units for the wall and combined these techniques with modern equipment.Their experience on the Parliament block restoration work in Ottawa has clearly prepared them for the challenges of both new and restoration masonry work. Without hesitation, we would highly recommend them for our project work and look forward to an opportunity to work together again.
