If you’re a Chicago homeowner or business owner, you know the value of keeping your property in top shape. One of the most important aspects of maintaining your home is ensuring that your brickwork stays in good condition. That’s where a reliable Chicago brick repair and tuckpointing company comes in. Here are some key points to consider when hiring a brick repair and tuckpointing contractor in Chicago:

1. Experience: Look for a company with years of experience in the brick repair and tuckpointing industry. Experienced contractors will have the knowledge and skills necessary to handle any type of brickwork repair or restoration project.

2. Quality of Work: Ask to see examples of the company’s past work, including before and after photos. A reputable contractor will be proud to show off their craftsmanship and the quality of their work.

3. Customer Reviews: Check out online reviews from past customers to get a sense of the company’s reputation. A high rating and positive feedback from past clients is a good sign that you’re dealing with a trustworthy company.

4. Pricing: Be wary of companies that offer extremely low prices for their services. While it’s important to stay within your budget, you don’t want to sacrifice quality for affordability. Look for a company that offers competitive pricing while still delivering top-notch work.

5. Insurance and Licensing: Make sure that the company you choose is properly licensed and insured. This will protect you from any liability if accidents or damage occurs during the project.

Prices were very reasonable and they were very responsive. Highly recommend!!!Michael AlexanderMichael Alexander ★★★★★ Our 1920s Condo building was in need of masonry work due to water penetration. Jakub at Jagra was extremely helpful in guiding us through our options and working with our timeline because of the approval needed. In the end we got a parapet wall rebuild that looks great and kept the original look of the building. They do amazing work and feel confident that we made the right decision with Jagra after going through multiple bids. Thank you!Deluiez TaylorDeluiez Taylor ★★★★★ Jagra was AMAZING! They completed our tuckpointing and roof replacement project on time, as specified and under budget! Jacob and his entire crew were a delightful partners!april lillstromapril lillstrom ★★★★★ We actually got 5 quotes from different companies for tuck pointing on our two flat (because it was a pretty big expense for us, and wanted to make sure we understood what work needed done) and we're really happy that we ended up going with Jagra. Jacob and Jacob are very responsive and easy to communicate with, and great about thoroughly answering questions. They checked with us at several points during the project to give us updates and ensure our satisfaction, and the team did a great job. I would recommend Jagra to anyone!Dave FredericksonDave Frederickson ★★★★★ Total professionals and did an amazing job on repairing my parapet walls.Chris KralikChris Kralik ★★★★★ Jagra was very professional and their customer service was top notch. They were attentive to questions and concerns and I'm very pleased to have a newly restored chimney!Stephen ShirkStephen Shirk ★★★★★ Jagra Corp just completed a large brick replacement and tuck point project at my work/studio building in West Town It's an old flat roof brick bunker built in 1890 and modified for various uses over the coarse of its life. The goal of my project was to make the building solid and sound. Do to the mismatch of brick used over the years, beautification would take a backseat. Jacob was prompt with communication, providing clear explantations and estimates. They were able to start the project a few days earlier than originally planned and finish ahead of schedule as well. The foreman and crew were friendly and did great work. They cleaned up the building and surrounding area when the project was done. Even though I explained that this wasn't a beautification project, the building looks better than ever expected and now it is good to go for years to come. Thank you, Jacob! I will be calling you again for other masonry projects.Response from the ownerThank you for taking the time to write Stephen. We're very glad to hear the project exceeded your expectations. Honestly, we're in love with the rustic-mismatched look, maybe your project can start a new trend! Steve GeisSteve Geis ★★★★★ I needed tuckpointing and some brick replacement on my house which was built in the late 1800s. Jagra assessed the job; provided a proposal and completed the project in the timely manner. The team was professional, courteous and very skilled. Their work exceeded my expectations.Response from the ownerThank You for the kind words Steve. It was a pleasure to be of service. Carol PorfilioCarol Porfilio ★★★★★ We are very pleased with the work done by Jagra. A prior owner of our home had painted our Chicago Common Brick which had caused extensive erosion and flaking. The prior owners had also “repaired” the mortar and bricks using FlexAll mixed with sand. (This is a common scam on homeowners in Oak Park!) The “repairs” were hiding major damage to a basement stairwell wall. Jagra assessed the damage and replaced our damaged bricks with a full pallet of new, well matched bricks.Jagra will not be the cheap option but they are wonderful to work with. They used vacuums when grinding out the old mortar to minimize the dust and left our home clean and safe every evening. Extensive repairs were completed in five business days by a remarkably hard working team.Response from the ownerWe're impressed by Your knowledge and flattered by the review Carol! Anyone in Oak Park who sees this review should be glad they did. (Beware Flexall)! Julie ZengJulie Zeng ★★★★★ The stubborn leak we have had for many years was finally fixed thanks to Jagra. This is a very experienced team with in-depth construction knowledge. They are capable of solving more complex issues such as replacing beams above window and door openings. I first saw Jagra’s work on Instagram and decided to reach out. The owner personally came to my house to do initial valuation. It turned out that our water intrusion was caused by structural problems around the window and door openings. He gave us a reasonable quote and was able to fit us in within a couple of weeks. The crew showed up on time and did proper protection around the house before beginning the work. The bricks were first carefully taken out, an old rusty beam above the window opening was replaced, and old waterproof flashings were replaced. The crew was able to preserve and reuse the original bricks. They also did a great job cleaning up afterwards. We have had several large storms following the repair and no leaks! We are very happy with the quality of the service and the result. Great team to work with.Response from the ownerThank you for taking the time to share Julie. It's always reassuring to hear about how our work holds up in this Chicago weather after a project is finished, we appreciate that! Cheers Juan GarciaJuan Garcia ★★★★★ Updating rating from 4 to 5 stars.I hired Jagra to rebuild two sandstone block wing walls that where starting to come apart in various places.Jakub took the time to answer all of my questions and explain the work that would need to be done to rebuild the wing walls.They were also able to work around my personal schedule when it came down to scheduling the job. The job was completed on time and as requested.When Taking into account all of the aspects that where involved in this project I am glad that I chose Jagraand would probably hiring Jagra again in the future.Response from the ownerFantastic to hear Juan, and thank you for details! You were a delight to work with. Miguel HernandezMiguel Hernandez ★★★★★ Jagra was able to take care of the work my home needed pretty fast and I am happy with the work done. Great communication from Jacob was a big plus for me. I would definitely look to hire them again.Response from the ownerThank you for the review Miguel. Looking forward to it! Lawrence MLawrence M ★★★★★ They were great and did an amazing job. Jacob and his crew were professional and efficient with their work. This company definitely knows what they’re doing. I will use them again in the coming future and would highly recommend because of the quality of work they put in.Response from the ownerThis is very complimentary Lawrence, thank You. Looking forward to next time. Chris PalmerChris Palmer ★★★★★ Jacob and team were responsive during the estimating and construction of the cement stairs and sidewalk. The finished product looked great and I’m very happy with the work after they completed it last week.emma kaplanemma kaplan ★★★★★ Jacob and Jacob of Jagra Masonry did a fabulous job on our home. Jagra tuck pointed the front of our home, replaced two failed window lintels, and made spot repairs on the rest of the exterior. They were very patient with our multitude of questions, and explained what should be done in the near and long term (very helpful if you’re a new homeowner and are trying to prioritize!) The masons worked quickly and neatly to complete the job. We would absolutely recommend them.Response from the ownerWe appreciate you Emma, thank you for taking the time to share your photos and the thoughtful review. Beric WesselyBeric Wessely ★★★★★ We hired Jagra Masonry for an emergency violation imposed by the City of Chicago. Jacob and team were extremely responsive and helpful. I received quotes from 3 other companies and while Jagra came in mid-price range / slightly higher than others...they're the ONLY company that found other issues with the condition of our building and masonry work that should be done. It's important to note - YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR - the cheapest guy is not always the best guy. I am so glad we spent more and received what we did in return. We ended up signing on Jagra for 2 additional jobs. All of the jobs were completed in a timely and professional manner. As we're a condo association, it's not an easy job to wrangle in all of the owners and get them on the same page. Jacob was kind and patient while we worked out things internally. He was very understanding about our financial situation and worked with us to ensure we were going to be okay long term. The work that they did was excellent - highly recommend!!!Tom HaleyTom Haley ★★★★★ We're very happy with the work Jacob and the crew at Jagra did on our home. They were quick, on time, thorough, and the finished walls look great. Jacob was also extremely detailed in the estimate he provided, and took the time to answer all of our questions. I'll definitely give them a call next time I need masonry done, and would gladly recommend them to friends or family.Renee BallietRenee Balliet ★★★★★ The Jagra Masonry team is great! They completed several project at my home including tuck pointing, new sidewalk, gangway sidewalk, and removal of old concrete for another project I’m doing. They were on time, meticulous, and great communicators,. Jakob was great to work with. He patiently took off my questions and concerns. Plain and simple, these guys do good work.Stefany RomanStefany Roman ★★★★★ I found Jagra Masonry on Instagram. I am so glad I did! I needed to redo the tuckpointing on my two flat rental property. I constantly found mortar on the floor and pieces of brick on the sidewalk. I knew it was time for maintenance. I contacted them to get a quote. Jakub was very professional walked me through the entire process of what the job was going to entail. He also made a couple of recommendations of redoing the front parapet wall because it was caving in due to years of deterioration. He also saw I was missing bricks towards the roof. Everything that we talked about in our initial walk through meeting was completed and exceeded my expectation. The workers were very clean after each work day. That's very important for me to keep my tenants and neighbors happy. They started and completed the job as on the promised date. I appreciate that Jakub followed up with me the day after the job was completed to make sure I was happy with their work. I will be using them in the near future for my other properties. Jagra Masonry did an exceptional job and I highly recommend!Response from the ownerWe're glad you found us too Stefany! Thank you so much for your kind words. Christina SlatonChristina Slaton ★★★★★ Jagra came recommend to us by a neighbor when our three-flat needed roofing and masonry repairs. Jakub was very helpful and easy to work with. Our building needs extensive repairs, and he walked us through which issues to prioritize. His crew worked quickly and efficiently. We will definitely use them in the future.Candace OdiliCandace Odili ★☆☆☆☆ Contacted this company last August through their Instagram to get an estimate. Sent them pictures of the damage facade of our 1886 building via text but did not receive any information back. I reached out again via their Instagram account a month later and was left on read. Not sure why? Maybe it's because of who I am and where I live that I was treated so unprofessionaly. Luckily we were able to find another company who came out and do the work quickly.Response from the ownerWe're sorry to hear this Candance, at the time of your inquiry we were in the process of integrating a new social media and customer manager (you can see why). We are glad your project was able to get completed otherwise, and would hope to get the chance to make up for this in the future. Dean ThanosDean Thanos ★★★★★ Working with our very tight schedule, Jagra responded quickly with an on-site visit and prompt follow up with a proposal clearly stating the work to be performed. They welcomed questions with straightforward explanations.Jagra started work in a timely manner and the Project Manager kept us abreast of how work was progressing and brought structural issues to our attention so they could be addressed.We were impressed by Jagra’s thoroughness with the window lintel replacements. We appreciated the expertise they offered in identifying mistakes made by a previous contractor, remediating them, and replacing the lintel L-beams properly. They reseated our decorative terra cotta tiles to sit flush and even with one another. Our front entry door now looks superb, as the tiles are flush and have the proper wicking ropes to move moisture away from the building.Jagra kept the work site clean, safe and secure through out the project, which was located on a high foot traffic street. The crew was courteous to our building residents.It was wonderful to have Jagra’s help in handling the case from our city inspector. They provided detailed pictures and proof of work to us to ensure the case was closed without additional fines.The BadWindows were broken in the process and then went unfixed for months. While we understand it is hard to find a subcontractor, this might have been prevented simply by covering the windows with a mover’s blanket during the grinding process.There were several spots where the grout was not color matched as promised in the statement of work; gray concrete color does not match the existing beige grout tint. Other spots were not acid washed and still have the appearance of smeared grout.5ive Star5ive Star ★★★★★ I used Jagra in a bit of a pinch as my parapet wall was in bad shape on my rental. Jacob came through and did a great job. The job was speedy and well done. He even coordinated with the roofer. Very satisfied with Jagra’s work and would use again.Lisa WentzelLisa Wentzel ★★★★★ Jagra team is excellent. Our 1873 home was incorrectly patched over the years and needed a complete tuck with new parapet wall rebuild with knowledge of limestone mortar and brick replacement. They worked hard, clean, on time, communicated well and charged fairly without being overly pushy.El CastilloEl Castillo ★★★★★ I worked with Jakub via texts and photos of my job site. He was able to assess the situation, coordinate his crew and get organized in a week. Contract was handled via docusign, invoices prepared quickly, and payment via Zelle. OMG if only everyone would work this efficiently. Quality of work was excellent, crew was pleasant and friendly.Jorge JuarezJorge Juarez ★★★★★ Very Professional and great customer service.I will definitely use them again for all my masonry needs.Jacob and his team provide top notch quality of work.Alex LieuAlex Lieu ★★★★★ We had a parapet wall rebuilt and other areas that needed tuckpointing. Jagra came early each day and finished the project within the time frame they communicated. They also communicated well and responded to my questions and concerns.Teresa GlodzTeresa Glodz ★★★★★ I am very satisfied with the quality and service. I receive the estimate very quickly. The team show up as promised. Highly recommend.Erin BraceyErin Bracey ★★★★★ Pick Jagra Masonry EVERY TIME! An 11/10From start to finish, the Jagra Masonry team has done an outstanding job: fairly quoting our projects, realistic on time to complete and materials needed, are extremely efficient in demoing and rebuilding of each project, completing in the time promised and leaving the work site better than they found it. Our business is located in an over 100+-year-old Chicago common brick building and you can't tell where the historic building ends and the 2022 updates begin.  We have completed multiple commercial coded projects such as exterior/ interior wall rebuild, lintel/ support structures, front entry creation, parapet wall rebuild, etc. within the last 2-year and have continuously gone back to Jagra Masonry because they don't disappoint. Can't recommend this business enough!Erin BraceyBracey PerformanceCOO | Co-FounderDaniel GoldmeierDaniel Goldmeier ★★★★★ Jagra does fantastic work!

Decided to pour cement stairs when it was raining. Came out unlevel. Bad communication. Said that it would be fix. 2years later nothing. I fell upset about this company and saw other bad reviews describe my experience. I saw so many good reviews that's why i have them a try too.Alton Bell II, EAAlton Bell II, EA ★★★★★ They did a great job on our wall repairing and replacing the brick and tuck point!Fe HoFe Ho ★★★★★ js_loader
