I have used Dan and his guys on a couple jobs at a mixed use building I own. Dan is easy to communicate with and clearly lays out costs upfront (which isn't always the case with construction people). I will definitely use him again!

Dan and his team have done multiple jobs at my Park Ridge, IL home. Jobs have included stone arch work, brick tuck pointing, and waterproofing. All water seepage has ceased. Brick and stone work has turned out beautifully. The team was always punctual and courteous. Sergio always had time for any questions we had. All this at a reasonable price. I would highly recommend FocalPoint Masonry to any of my friends or neighbors.

I cannot recommend Sergio enough. The masonry on our home had been allowed to go too long before we purchased it and required a significant rebuilding all the way from the windows up. As a result, we got to know Sergio well and he is a great person to work with when undergoing a project like we did. The quality of their works was excellent and Sergio knows what he is doing when works with old homes, which was particularly important to us. The price to the quality of work is excellent and I highly recommend Focal Point Masonry.
