Whether you’re planning a new project or re-imagining an existing structure, NLF Masonry can help from the inception of the design through to and beyond the project’s implementation.
Form Follows Function
The inherent beauty of brickwork bonds, arches and textural finishes provides the perfect backdrop for any architectural design.
By incorporating traditional masonry techniques into the framework of the modern masonry industry, NLF Masonry is able to provide design and craftsmanship that is unique and understated.
A Narrative Building Element
More than any other building material, the diverse textures and patterns of natural stonework offer insight into the history of any building.
Used as an accent, decorative feature or the substance of a wall itself, stone has the ability to transform a space with a lasting resonance.
Revitalize Your Property
From repointing and brick replacements to full-scale masonry restorations, sourcing of the best available heritage masonry materials is the first step in achieving a durable, attractive repair.

Exterior Masonry Projects
Our century-old brick house was in need of a facelift. Nate was able to source old bricks that matched the existing ones that were crumbling. He chose the perfect color of mortar to enhance the brickwork. Nate and his crew worked hard for a week to repair the front of the house. He tarped around the area to keep all the dust contained so it did not impact our garden or our neighbor’s and every evening everything was left clean and tidy. Nate is knowledgeable, resourceful and efficient. His work was completed in a timely manner and the quality is outstanding.
Restoration Of The Exterior Brick Front Of A Century-Old House
I required restoration of my exterior brick work from a home renovation that involved the moving of doors and windows. All work was completed very quickly and to the highest standard. Competitive pricing.
External Masonry Repairs And Restoration
Complex work in cramped quarters and requiring all equipment and materials to be carried through the house. Carefully done and very obliging and considerate of our property and the neighbors. I could not be more pleased. Beautiful work and highly recommended.
Foundation Wall Underpinning And Repair And Chimney Brick Repair
Great work done in a timely manner. And the price was better than all the other quotes I received. Very happy with the service and results.
Chimney And Brickwork
Nate repointed and replaced bricks as necessary on three walls of our house (built-in 1897). This included rebuilding several window arches. He also replaced many cracked stones in the foundation as well as the lintel for a basement window. Finally, he ordered and installed 9 heritage stone window sills, replacing rotted window sills. He was very professional and the quality of the work was fantastic. Nate has great attention to detail and he shared our passion for restoring the house to its original state (or better!).
We have a cottage that’s over 90 years old and despite the many patches over the years, the chimney was in desperate need of repair before it fell apart and there was water coming in where it met with the roof. When I spoke with Nate, showed him the pictures and explained the situation he was very confident and knowledgable about what needed to be done. He was able to provide a quote quickly that explained where and by how much costs may change depending on variables that inevitably arise in a project of this nature.
