The Cost of Masonry in Edmonton

There are a number of factors that determine the cost of masonry. A definitive range may be difficult to put together, since an on-site inspection and consultation is necessary for a more accurate estimate.

However, you can check out the table below for an overview of the average costs for certain kinds of masonry work. Note that these include costs for material and labor.

Company/organizationCourse length
Repointing$14-$28 per sq ft
Bowing repair$30-$60 per sq ft
New brick installation$30-$60 per sq ft
Ledges$480-$750 each
Lintels$960-$2,400 each
Plastered foundationaround $7.2-$9 per sq ft

As you may have noticed, the square footage of a project is a key factor in determining the costs. Of course, the necessary materials to be used for the project also play a role.

Masons also charge labor by the hour. Expect to pay around $144 per hour for labor for experienced ones.

With over 30 years of experience in the masonry industry, Scorpio Masonry’s excellence is tough to beat. They have an extensive portfolio of commercial, multi-family, and restoration projects that will surely impress you.

Their portfolio boasts an impressive scale of projects. These include restoring the Federal Public Building and work on the Alberta Culture Building, among many others.

One of their most recent projects include the Alberta Legislature stairs. The project gallery details the entire process from start to finish.

We’re impressed by how they’ve landed such large-scale projects so often, each project unique. This proves that they can effectively adjust and cater to whoever their clients are.

It’s not all about corporate or public projects either. We do also like how they apply the same expertise and care to private residences using state-of-the-art equipment and practices.

As such, it’s pretty much expected that they’ll gather numerous awards over the years. These include recognition from the prestigious Masonry Design Awards held every four years in Alberta and Saskatchewan.

Between the two provinces, they’ve received the Presidential Award, along with 12 other Awards of Excellence, 18 Awards of Merit, and 6 Honorable Mentions.

They received these awards for their work on the Real Time Control Building, the Aga Khan Garden, the University of Alberta Botanic Garden, and the Edmonton Brewery District, just to name a few.

And while it may be undeniable that they are the best when it comes to masonry design and quality restorations, it’s still evident how much attention they put into other aspects of their work.

This has been noted by numerous past clients who say they appreciate how clean the team leaves the worksite after the project. From this alone, you can easily see the degree of professionalism they bring with them.

Pros

  • Impressive portfolio
  • Does restorations as well
  • Multiple award and recognitions
  • Over 30 years of experience

Cons

  • Not as known for residential and smaller-scale projects
  • No online estimates

Client Testimonials

“Very happy with the service provided by Scorpio Masonry. Their estimator and bricklayers demonstrated professionalism in keeping us apprised at each stage of the work, sought our input at appropriate moments, and ensured the work site was clean after the work was complete. We are excited to have our brick looking like new again.”––Richard R. 

Awesome to work with

“Hauled some equipment from the Richmond BC yard to Edmonton AB yard!

Better than imaginable

“Great workmanship, clear communication, honest price, locally owned business. The owner, Amer puts lots of care in the work that he does.  Doesn’t get much better than Stone Solutions Inc.!

Highly recommended for anyone looking for stone work.”––Yannick Mahé

Meticulous, clean, efficient

“We had Stone Solutions do the cultured stone on our 4 car garage. The two man crew made short work of the job. They were meticulous, clean and efficient. Very impressed. They left the work site spotless. All excess mortar was removed from the surfaces, the area was swept and garbage removed. Pricing was very competitive. We will use them again for our remaining stone work.”––Samantha Kluthe

Met Exteriors has been serving Edmonton since 2008, specializing in stucco and stone application for both commercial and residential clients.

They have a wide range of services on offer. These include brick work, stone work, block work, and the related services and repairs for each.

We think their portfolio of external commercial improvements and designs is impressive. Among them are their work for various shops, restaurants, and apartments in Edmonton, Leduc, Jasper Plaza, and Sherwood Park.

These commercial projects include signages, siding improvements, natural stone accents, architectural elements, and restoration of soffits and fascia.

Their residential projects are just as varied, each looking really polished. If you’d like to improve your home by adding pillars, feature walls, or chimney repairs, we think they’re worth giving a call.

Speaking of residential projects, we really like their modern approaches to design and materials. 

They offer tiered plans for 3D exterior renders of your house showing various materials. This is helpful, especially if you’re still undecided on what material to use.

Another innovation they have on offer is EIFS, or External Insulated Finishing System. We think clients will appreciate it since it’s designed in a way that could help lower heating and cooling bills. 

It’s also worth noting that a lot of their clients contacted them for help fixing damage or addressing emergency issues in houses. Since they specialize in stucco repairs, they’re a top choice for insurance claims and repairs.

Many of their past clients told us that the company’s team arrived quickly when they got called in for an emergency repair assessment. Incidentally, they’ve been called in for water damage and stucco repair jobs.

And lastly, if you are more of the DIY type, we should also note that they sell various stone products.

Pros

  • Modern materials and practices
  • Top choice for insurance claims and repairs
  • Specializes in stucco repairs
  • Large portfolio of commercial projects

Cons

  • 3D exterior renders may be a pricey addition
  • Not BBB-accredited

Client Testimonials

Impeccable service

“I had an emergency stucco repair job needed so I called Met. Ercan came over within an hour and assessed the damage.  He came out with his team the next day and not only addressed the issue but also helped fix some minor stucco issues.  I highly recommend this company as the service was impeccable!”––Justin Cenaiko

Fair price

“One of the best home improvement decisions we have made was to pick Met Exteriors as our stucco contractor.  Ercan and his team did a great job in responding to our phone calls and e-mails, and executing the renovation plan agreed upon on the stucco of our house.  We are satisfied with the  quality of the stucco they have applied around our house, the workmanship they have put from the removal of the old stucco to the proper application of the new stucco exterior, and the fair price they have provided us.”––Mike Bolilia

Rocker Masonry Ltd. is among the region’s leading masonry specialists, and it’s no wonder. The company has been booked for numerous commercial projects across Edmonton and has testaments to its expertise all over the city.

The projects include their work for 1700 Keen Crescent, Karo Building, Parsons Center, and Village at Summerside, just to mention a few from their growing list.

It’s understandable why they get booked for such projects because they also specialize in elevator shafts and firewalls as well. 

While they’ve been proven to be great for commercial projects, we think they’re great for private residences as well. This is because they cater to clients in need of chimney rebuilds, or just about any block or stone work needed.

Many of their past clients have remarked on the quality of their service. They cite that it was always a pleasure to have them take care of their masonry needs.

We like their fair pricing for the quality they have on offer. This was also a consensus among the clients we polled.

And finally, to make it easier to get projects underway, they are open to addressing cost inquiries online through their website. Again, that’s appreciated, as are the quick responses to quote requests.

Pros

  • Plenty of commercial experience
  • Specializes in elevator shafts as well
  • Offers chimney rebuilds

Cons

  • Focus is on commercial projects
  • No mention of length of warranty coverage
