We are a masonry company that specialises in the restoration and conservation of older buildings in Toronto. That may include a single brick replacement or a full facade rebuild. We aim for our work to be seamless and period correct.
We draw on years of experience of working in the commercial heritage restoration industry in Toronto. That experience of overcoming problems and establishing solutions in restoring Toronto' most renowned buildings has given us a wealth of knowledge to call upon.
Masons no longer ride up to the door in a horse drawn cart, however one thing that has stayed the same is how we deal with masonry. The building is still standing and in relatively good shape. There is a reason for that. The masons who built them knew what they were doing. When we approach a restoration we simply follow in the footsteps of the original craftsmen. We use the same materials and the same principles in bringing the exterior back to life.
Toronto Masonry Restoration is a newly established heritage masonry company that services the city of Toronto. Our projects mainly consist of Victorian and Edwardian brick restoration projects. We work in older neighbourhoods, on older buildings such as the ones found in cabbagetown. We are currently looking to hire a labourer who wants to learn restoration skills.
Your duties will include management and preparation of mortar, a variety of brickwork and stonework and general assistance to the mason on site. The work can be physically demanding so being able bodied and capable of lifting 40kg is required. We place an emphasis on a positive and safe work environment. We don’t adhere to the old school construction ethos. The ideal candidate will have a passion for masonry and the desire to grow into an independent tradesperson.
Being a small company, you will have the opportunity to learn and apply new skills regularly. Our general work hours are 7:00am to 3:00pm Mon-Fri however, with this being the construction industry, those hours may change depending on the weather and the individual project schedules. All of our projects take place within the city limits. The candidate will be required to make their own way to and from work sites.
This job will challenge you both physically and mentally. The work you do will hopefully last a lifetime. The satisfaction and appreciation in completing a good job is hard to beat. If you enjoy being outdoors and working with your hands in a positive work environment then this path may be for you.
