Comments: The team at Black Horse Masonry do excellent work. Every aspect of the job, from getting the quote, demolition and rebuilding of my chimney went without any issues (except Tacoma weather) Tara at the front office did a great job keeping me in the loop on the status of the job as we faced many rain delays. Would highly recommend.

Comments: The team at Black Horse Masonry do excellent work. Every aspect of the job, from getting the quote, demolition and rebuilding of my chimney went without any issues (except Tacoma weather) Tara at the front office did a great job communicating the schedule and what they needed in terms of temperatures and dry weather. She never left me wondering if they were going to get to the job. The crew on-site were very respectful of the property during demolition and rebuilding of my chimney. They cleaned up every day and did not cause any property damage. The new chimney looks great and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. I highly recommend this team

Review Date: 02/26/2020 | Author: Frank M., Tacoma, WA

Comments: Outstanding guys. It takes a while to get on the schedule, but it's worth the wait. Very knowledgeable about codes and doing the right thing. Price is right, value is great. Our project was restoration of a historic chimney and fireplace in a period piece home. Communication between office and field staff is a little shaky but nothing that can't be overcome.

Review Date: 12/07/2019 | Author: Stephen D., Kirkland, WA

Comments: Very knowledgeable about fire codes. I wanted to do something that I didn't know was not per code. A different contractor recommended this action. As soon as I discussed my plan with Isaac, he told me it was not per code. They did a great job repairing and resurfacing our fireplace. They also repaired the mortar on both of our chimneys. Great work. Friendly crew.

Comments: Tara contacted us quickly and scheduled our project without delay. Isaac exhibited great skill and knowledge with his work and gave us confidence that we had selected the right company to do our work. Black Horse Masonry is a small family owned business and they pride them selves in delivering service, service, service.

Review Date: 06/16/2015 | Author: Barbara K., Bonney Lake, WA

Comments: Well oiled machine! Black Horse contacted me quickly, bid quickly, got me on the schedule and showed up exactly as they said they would. Couldn't ask for more. Excellent fix of a 1960's brick wall, including replacing several random bricks, tuck-point, mortar, caulk, and acid wash/clean. Turned out perfect.

Review Date: 05/12/2015 | Author: Gavin T., Tacoma, WA

Comments: We hired them for a chimney tuck and point, during busy season. They were prompt and able to schedule us in despite our rigid time requirements. They did an excellent job! Isaac was great and between him and Tara we felt very well taken care of. There was a few minor communication breaks, but overall we are very happy!

Review Date: 05/18/2014 | Author: Rebekka J., Tacoma, WA

Comments: Our project ended up going in a different direction than we had planned. Had to stop our project due to extensive damage to brick and mortar of chimney. They worked with us on every aspect of the options including refunding payment not used. Willing and help ful to help with the next step of our project.

Comments: Worked with Isaac and Tara to get a service scheduled for my chimney. They were upfront and honest about the work needed, and finished the work in a timely and efficient manner. Issues they discovered along the way were communicated to me immediately. I highly recommend them for any masonry work that anyone might need for their home!

Review Date: 11/30/2013 | Author: a Neighbor, Kirkland, WA

Comments: On time, and professional. Our chimney was in good condition and clean. Did not try to sell us a cleaning we didn't need.

Review Date: 10/19/2013 | Author: Tuan N., Renton, WA

Comments: Little miscommucation in the beginning but excellent customer service helped with recovery. On-site person was very thorough, took the time to explain what he was going to do and what he did. Also did a little extra by realigning my gutters and resecuring them to my roof without any extra charge. Chimney looks amazing.

Review Date: 10/01/2013 | Author: a Neighbor, Tacoma, WA

Review Date: 09/16/2013 | Author: Carey H., Seattle, WA

Comments: very knowledgable, easy to work with, had good recommendations for projects related to the fireplace

Review Date: 07/14/2013 | Author: David L., Seattle, WA

Comments: very pleasant to work with, very good communications, work promptly done as arranged

Review Date: 06/17/2013 | Author: Clay S., Seattle, WA

Comments: Friendly, knowledgeable, and prompt service. They also dropped the price considerably after inspecting the chimney and discovering that we didn't really need a full cleaning. Given that they could easily have just gone ahead with the cleaning and I wouldn't have known the difference, that speak volumes as to their ethics.

Review Date: 04/18/2013 | Author: a Neighbor, Puyallup, WA

Review Date: 05/09/2012 | Author: Lisa I., Puyallup, WA

Comments: We asked black horse to take down our chimney. They did a great job at an awesome price! They even took some debris that we had to the dump for us. We would definitely recommend them to our friends and family.

Review Date: 01/15/2012 | Author: David H., Bellevue, WA

Comments: Kudos to Tara, Issac, and the rest of the Black Horse team! They were great to work with: on time, on budget, professional expertise, and most of all...personable to work with!

Review Date: 12/28/2011 | Author: Greg C., Seattle, WA

Comments: Polite, accurate and quality work. Very happy and would use again.

Review Date: 12/05/2011 | Author: Robyn S., Seattle, WA

Comments: I can't really comment on the quality of their work, but this company came out, inspected my chimney and informed me that it was unsafe to burn in it. They did not charge me for coming out, nor did they pointlessly clean my chimney. The technician offered suggestions for me and left an estimate on a chimney rebuild. I appreciated his thoroughness.

Review Date: 11/22/2011 | Author: Ruth D., Puyallup, WA

Comments: The guys from Black Horse Masonry were always on time, courteous, finished the job on both chimney's in a reasonable amount of time (in spite of the nasty weather) and were more than helpful explaining what was going on each day. We would most definitely recommend them and will call them again in the future. Nice guys, great job!

Review Date: 11/17/2011 | Author: a Neighbor, Tacoma, WA

Comments: After the inspection, it was deturmaned that my chiminey did not need to be cleaned. The inspection was free, so no cost to me for a lot of peace of mind.

Review Date: 11/14/2011 | Author: Edwin B., Puyallup, WA

Comments: Very professional! Reliable! Excellent workmanship! This is the type of professional you can depend on.

Review Date: 11/07/2011 | Author: Bob M., Auburn, WA

Comments: Issac arrived on time and inspected my chimney to see if it needed cleaning and told us it did not so we were not charged for something we didn't need. He also pointed out that we would need a re-caulk around the neck on the roof in a year and offered to set us up with a reminder for next year. We were very impressed with the way he treated us and informed us of a possible problem that we could have on our roof. Two thumbs up plus for Black Horse. I'd definitely would recommend them to anyone!!

Review Date: 06/09/2011 | Author: Kathy V., Lakewood, WA

Comments: I would hire Black Horse again anytime, and would highly recommend them to others. They went out of their way and over extended the customer service to make sure we were satisfied and happy with the work. They were also helpful and informative in a way that I did not feel any sales pressure.

Review Date: 03/16/2011 | Author: Dennis P., Federal Way, WA

Review Date: 09/01/2010 | Author: a Neighbor, Federal Way, WA

Comments: Professsional, on time, courteous and knowledgable. We weren't sure what repairs needed to be done or what was wrong. They explained what should be done and hopefully no more leaks.
