By far the most professional and highly skilled company I've worked with.I had a chimney taken down and rebuilt from the roof line up. The most difficult part of the job was the pitch of the roof and how close my neighbors homes are next to mine, The crew skillfully put up scaffolding and took down a the damaged chimney and built a new chimney in the same day. My neighbors didn't even know they were there. Crews cleaned up afterwards and it also a pleasure working with Ed the owner in the contractual process. Top Notch Company! I will definitely use them again.. -
This company and its owner were a pleasure to work with. We needed some masonry repairs on our single family home in Lincoln Park and I called Edmar to give us a quote. Our chimney was in pretty bad shape—missing bricks and apparently a cracked concrete cap. Ed stopped by to check it out and told us that the chimney had to be rebuilt above the roofline. He counted the number of bricks needed, in addition to a new cap and replacement clay tiles. We got a great price and hired Edmar for the job. The crew that came out was very skilled and hardworking. They even tuckpointed a few areas around the house where the mortar was cracked and loose (without an extra charge). After a couple days, we had a brand new chimney and some fresh tuckpointing. I got more than my money’s worth working with Edmar and have recommended them to my neighbors. Thanks Edmar! -
I am a case manager who works with people with disabilities and one of my clients needed her roof repaired due to a big hole and her ceiling was starting to cave in. My client and her siblings, also with impairments, were so happy with John from Edmar and selected him right off the bat, even though his estimate was higher than the other estimate they received. Edmar wound up giving them a discount, which made the cost come down a bit, which made the client happy. Not only did John and his crew offer to fix the roof, they were able to fix other things in the home, such as putting in drywall and painting the ceiling to seal the crack, installing two new light fixtures and two smoke detectors, installing a new screen door and fixing an old garage door that would not close properly and covering some holes in the wall. We asked John if he could select/purchase the light fixture/smoke detector and factor the cost into the contract, which he was able to accommodate, which made it so much more convenient for the client, who would have needed help to do such. While the work was being done, the client kept asking John for other things that they wanted fixed, which he did even though they were not in the contract. The other things were paid for separately, but this goes to show the company's ability to accommodate people with disabilities who do not understand how these things usually work. As her case manager, I am grateful for his patience, sense of humor and treatment of them as any other individual and for not taking advantage of them, as others might have done in this situation (and have done in the past). In my opinion, he and his crew went above and beyond and the client is very happy with the work and plan to use him again in the future, as I would. -
Edmar Corporation did a great job fixing several problems with my 100 plus year old beautiful greystone. Edmar and his partner help me resolve difficult issues, and went above beyond to resolve the problems. Their price may not be the lowest, it was on par with many other quotes I received and in the end it was well worth the money spend. Ed's years of experience, integrity and diligence made working with him a pleasure. -
Our condo association will definitely be hiring Edward and his company again this year. They completed two projects for us, some tuckpointing and brickwork on one of our garages as well as replacing our front sidewalk. Edward came out with a quote quickly, arranged for the work efficiently and under budget. I have complete confidence in his expertise and work ethic. -
It's always frightening to undertake a project that requires dismantling the infrastructure of your home. Thus, it was no different with me when I asked Edmar to stop a leak that had ruined a bedroom. To do so, they had to remove the capstones of a parapet in the corner of my 4-floor townhouse. It require their building a scaffold to access the area and elevating all the materials needed for the repairs. When they were done, they had installed a waterproof seal, flashing, wicking -- all that had not been there before. With new mortar and properly sloped capstones (another improvement), they were done by 4pm. It was a one-day job! I'm very pleased with the work, the results, and the price. Give Edmar a try! -
The owner, Ed, was awesome to work with. Genuinely nice guy, honest and a true professional in his craft. We had some extensive masonry work done on our condo building and Ed's crew was on time, safe and took pride in their work. The results were amazing, some of the best masonry work I've seen. Ed and his crew are real experts in masonry. -
Edmar is the most professional construction with many skilled workers in Chicago area, as long as I know. If your priority is choosing a company you can trust, expecting the job done well without doubt, you should hire Edmar. If your priority is having done with least money, I don't think you need to call this company. There are many bad companies out there who know how to talk to you, but don't know how to work done. Especially, if you look for mason or concrete repair/rebuild, Edmar is the right place to call. My comment was from two times experiences in major repairs. -
Our condo association hired Edmar Corporation to do some much needed repairs on our building. It came to our attention that there were leaks on the ceilings of the top floor apartments, and we called a number of contractors to come check out the situation. Ed fit us in for an emergency quote the next day. This was a rare find as most of the other contractors we called didn’t even bother getting back to us. After taking a look at our roof, Ed explained to us how serious the job was and how the damage came about. The firewall and the parapet wall were both in really bad shape and needed to be rebuilt. The firewall and parapet wall were both crooked and the bricks were loose. To stop the ceilings from leaking, we needed to have the roofing redone as well. Ed was very thorough with explaining how the repairs were going to be done and after comparing a few more bids, we decided that Edmar Corp was best suited to handle our repair needs. They were able to schedule a start date pretty quickly and were flexible about working on Saturday. The workers were very professional and took great caution about ensuring the safety of the surrounding buildings and set up tarps to prevent debris from getting around. They got the firewall and parapet wall up in a few days, and were even able to match the bricks of the parapet wall to the rest of the building. Ed called and checked in with us every couple days and let us know where they were in the process. Our condo association was very happy with the work and highly recommends Edmar. -
Edmar is the best in the business. I’ve owned buildings in the city for a while now and I’m telling you there’s no one more professional and detailed than these guys. I’ve had them rebuild firewalls, fix decorative stones, repair damaged bricks and I’ve always been 100% satisfied. Most recently I hired them to powerwash and tuckpoint one of my condos and I couldn’t be happier with the results. It actually looks like a brand new building even though it’s over 80 years old. The owner of the company Ed Marciszewski is a really straight forward guy and won’t waste your time. He’s been in the business for a long time and knows everything there is to know about masonry and building repair in the Chicagoland area. I trust Edmar with all my repairs and will definitely continue to use them in the future. -
I haven’t been so excited in my live, the work is finally done! For the past five days I had a crew of 5 working on my 3 story building in Chicago. I have to admit it was neglected and in a very bad shape since no work has been done on it for decades… it’s probably close to 100 years old. It’s a brick structure, with 3 chimneys that had holes in it and every time it rained my basement was flooding. There are 14 windows with steel beams that needed replacement due to heavy rust, this also involved partial rebuilding of walls above those beams. My last problem was the wall section that sticks above flat roof surface, I think they call it “parapet wall” or something, which has disintegrated almost completely and basically required full rebuilding. I just wanted to say “Thank you” for all the work that was done on my house and recommend Ed (the owner of EDMAR) to everyone looking for a good mason. -
