While most places in KC are booked through January, Carl was able to find time to come inspect my chimney and gas fireplace within days of contacting him. Not only that, he was early to my house and finished so quickly! Being a new homeowner and new to gas fireplaces, I had him walk me through how to light it and safety measures to take into consideration. Very happy with Carl's service!

Carl came out and gave a very thorough and detailed bid, consulted with me on what I needed vs. what I wanted, and was creative in coming up with a recommended optimal solution that minimized additional costs. His team did excellent work, and ensured the job was done to a high standard of quality. I'd recommend Carl Metz for masonry and will definitely hire his team again.

I contacted Carl because we'd been dealing with a leak in our ceiling after heavy rain. I suspected it was coming from some cracks in the chimney and some gaps in the flashing. Not an emergency - but still urgent.

Carl said he could make it by Wednesday morning. We were supposed to get some rain Tuesday night, so he made time to come out before it rained. Love that initiative.

I got home from work and he was up on the roof. I joined him up there and he showed me a number of other areas that could be causing the leak and took the time to caulk as many spots as he could find.

My point is, he didn't just come out to perform a task and collect payment. He came out to fix a problem. He took the time to explain what he was doing so I understood what I was getting charged for. He set my expectations appropriately and pointed out some other things that could still be causing the leak that were outside what he could accomplish that evening – just so I was aware.

A lot of guys would have rolled up to the house after it had already rained, hopped up on the roof and just done the couple of things I had asked for. Probably wouldn't have fixed the issue.

The task ended up costing more than I anticipated, but I definitely feel it was fair (about $500). For now, the leaking seems to have stopped and I have some other things I know I should address.

Thanks Carl.

We had some mortar coming up on our brick staircase -- enough that we were concerned to walk on it heavily. So we contacted Carl to ask if he could come take a look. He came out on Sunday, quickly went over the project with us and said he could probably fit it in during the week.

By "probably," he meant the next day! He showed up and got the job done extremely fast and it looks wonderful.

Great job all around.

Carl did a bunch of masonry work and tuckpointing on an old outdoor fireplace and some retaining walls at our house -- originally we called him to repair the fireplace because too much smoke was coming out the front but he ended up tackling quite a few other small jobs while he was at it.

He did beautiful work (and worked his butt off, without breaks as far as I could tell, for about 10 straight hours). Lastly, he did an amazing cleanup job -- masonry work is always a mess and things looked better when he left than we started.

For the last couple hours he also managed to continue working while very kindly answering about 300 questions from our four year old. :)

He was a total pro -- both my wife and our nanny said he was a delight to have working at the house all day.
