Additionally, I would like to mention the caliber of workmanship and the courteous and understanding attitude of your employees. The work done by your people is of the highest caliber and the ''extras'' they have provided are deeply appreciated. We fully realize the effort put forth in cutting down the many bricks let alone all the additional work put into cleaning and tinting stained bricks to match the originals. No matter how frustrating the work was when things were changed in mid-stream your employees were courteous and understanding. All this just goes to show the top notch company you have built. We have not been bashful in telling the public how good your work and employees are and how pleased we are. Again, thank you for all you have done for our organization. Sincerely, William Melchior, Sec.

Washington Township, NJ Dear Andrew, This letter is a minimum due you and your firm as a thanks for the wonderful work done at Port Colden during the last two years of the exterior restoration. Your attitude and expertise made the project not only a success, but a pleasant experience for all involved. Your crew was knowledgeable and attentive to all the small details that an architect can focus on. The wonderful thing about our collaboration was that all sides learned something in the process about preservation and restoration. Your firm has a great give-and-take philosophy. We were particularly grateful for the ''gift'' of the four chimney/ventilation brick stacks, that the School Board had rejected from the budget as too costly. Having the chimney stacks completed certainly adds a huge amount to the understanding and interpretation of the historic building. Without your contribution, these might never have been done. It was a pleasure working with you, and we hope to repeat the experience on other restoration jobs in the near future. Sincerely, yours, John E. Bolt, RA
Philadelphia, PA Steve and Rob were both terrific workers throughout the job.

Danielsville, PA Dear Andy, Once again, Holly and I would like to thank you and your men for the terrific job you did in our attic stone wall and stone walkway projects.

When you gave us a date that you would be here to work, you were here. Jeff, Charlie, Mike and Jim were always helpful, always very hardworking and we feel have done n excellent job.

Reading, PA Hi Andy,

I want to commend you on the job you did on our church. Everyone who's commented to me has been very impressed with the quality of the job. I don't get in to the church very often during the daylight, (except on Sundays, when I enter and exit through the back of the Education building), so I don't usually see the front of the church except driving past. The day when I went out specifically to look for your work, I only found two of the three spots you worked on. (Which is a GOOD thing, as it shows how well everything is blended. I didn't have any interaction with any of your personnel (other than your visit to talk to our Board of Trustees), but I heard no complaints from anyone. The other thing that really impressed me was your coming in under budget. In my job, I have to deal with a lot of contractors, etc. and commonly have to deal with costs adders due to initially underbidding. You told us up front how you would bid the job (shading toward worst case rather than best case), and that's what you did.

I hope this will just be the first of many projects that you will be doing for us. Once again, thanks for a job well done, and we look forward to working with you more in the future.

Sincerely,

Dave Prine
Chairman - Board of Trustees
First Baptist Church
Lehighton, PA All work was executed by DeGruchy Masonry Incorporated in a professional manner with an acute attention to detail which produced a finished project of the highest quality.

Please do not hesitate to contact me at (570)-325-3611 should you wish to discuss this matter in greater detail.

Sincerely,

Kenneth J. Leffler-Office Manager
Zion United Church of Christ
Bath, PA Dear Andy deGruchy,

I want to thank you and your team for the work you performed on our church. The results are nothing short of spectacular. Our building was worse than we expected and when the bricks actually started to fall out of the wall, we knew we had to take action. You were able to fix all the problems with the brick, even when the existing mortar was completely deteriorated. We really appreciate your recommendation of the copper craftsman who replaced our gutters and other complex copper flashings. Watching him work was like going back in time. The scaffolding you erected kept the areas around the church clean and we never felt that our congregation was in any danger. The bricks of our church look completely different after you removed the decades of deposits of dirt and grit. We always felt confident that your repair techniques and expertise matched the age and historic value of our church.

We would be glad to speak to any of your prospective customers in the future about our experience with your team.

God Bless,
Michael Horn
Congregational Council (2003-2009)

We all enjoy seeing the final product. It is very nice to find a company that knows what they are doing and do the job as professionals. I enjoyed having the crew on this job! Thanks for your help.

Two years later a persistent water infiltration problem corrected:

To Whom It May Concern:

I am the owner of a brick home built in 1850. Since 1999 I've had a problem of water coming in through the bricks. This water problem covered one quarter of the original part of my house, and over eleven years was spreading from the living room to the dining room. Through the years I hired many experts trying to solve this problem. Local contractors, general contractors, three different restoration experts, engineers and well known Lehigh Valley architects specializing in restoring old homes in this area. All of them offered their solution to the problem after carefully studying the house. Each summer I started a new solution only to find the house returning to its original problem by spring. So many threw up their hands and walked away from the project, having run out of ideas of how to solve it. It has been a very frustrating, frightening and expensive problem and I was worried that I would never get this mystery solved. It was by chance, through yet another mason who worked on my house that I learned of deGruchy masonry. One phone call to the pleasant and knowledgeable person who answered the phone and an appointment was made for Mr. deGruchy himself to look over the situation.

After years of experts going through my house from top to bottom, of course my expectations were low with this visit. Mr. deGruchy was at a disadvantage with me because I was skeptical before he even arrived. But within that initial 4 hour visit and inspection of my house Mr. deGruchy was pretty confident he found the problem and solution. Mr. deGruchy took the time to go over every detail of his study and followed up with written step by step plan. He answered all of my questions, as well as the ones I didn't know to ask. It was a big leap of faith for me, but one that I felt was worth a try. I am overjoyed to report that the water problem seems to be solved. The plaster in the house has been dry for three months now, during heavy rainstorms and thawing and refreezing of ice - the normal culprit that seemed to always bring me back to square one. Mr. deGruchy has installed a moisture monitoring systems in multiple areas of the walls and all readings are indicating that the moisture levels within the core of the walls have gone done. He will continue to monitor the readings himself for the next few months. I would also like to mention that his work staff was excellent. It was obvious that they have passion and pride in their work. Their main concern was always to do the best job possible and they exceeded all of my expectations, which were set quite high. I was impressed by their attention to detail, their love and knowledge of this art of restoration and their cheerful and courteous attitude. They arrived promptly each morning with a smile on their faces, were serious about their work and at the end of each day the work area was cleaned up and nearly spotless. They always made a point each morning to tell me what they were going to do that day, what they did the day before and what obstacles they faced and conquered. I have never met a more professional, sincere and honest group of men who you could see really loved what they do. Besides knowledge, which they obviously have, this attitude and work ethic is what sets the great apart from the mediocre. I am more than pleased, and yes relieved, with the work that has been done by deGruchy Masonry and I commend Mr. deGruchy for hiring and motivating an exceptional staff such as his. It is so rare to see such character in people today and it did not go unnoticed. I would highly recommend Andy deGruchy and his staff. I feel a great burden has been lifted in the solving of my water problem.

Sincerely,

Radnor, PA While everyone wants to believe that a stone house is maintenance free, after 90 years, this one needed some restoration. I was very pleased to have secured the expertise of your firm and the craftsmen that you had on the job. You and the team had just the right approach to handling each element of the job. We all enjoy seeing the final product. It is very nice to find a company that knows what they are doing and do the job as professionals. I enjoyed having the crew on this job! Thanks for your help.
Newtown, PA Andy and his guys do an even better job than they say they will! deGruchy Masonry replastered the interior of our c.1800 Session House which is on the National Register of Historic Places. This involved reattaching plaster ceiling and skim coating the ceiling. Also, removing and replastering, with lime plaster, badly deteriorated and water damaged interior plaster. Job was completed in approximately 2 weeks. Work is totally satisfactory. We would give deGruchy Masonry our highest recommendations. We will definitely continue our association with them.

Bethlehem, PA This was a big project that got bigger as it went along. The brick on the house had been neglected for years before we purchased the house and there was a lot of brick work that was needed. After talking with a number of people, including my neighbors and other people that were familiar with brick pointing, I quickly learned that this is something that needs to be done right. There is no doubt that Andy is an expert on repointing and on the use of lime mortars.

One of the surprises that was encountered during the job was that the reason for the tilted slates along the side of the house was there was an enormous tree root that went along the side of the house. Certainly a surprise and the crew removed the root and kept moving forward. We also didn't expect that all of the slates would have been in poor condition which is why we had to replace them with brick. Andy and his team were very good at thinking on their feet and making good decisions when problems would arise.

The brick pointing went very well and the guys were careful. It is a messy job but there really tried to keep the mess to a minimum. I wiped down the window sills and we had professional window cleaners come in after the job and virtually all of the residues are gone. Also, the group of workers is very solid and trustworthy. A pleasure to have working on the house.

One issue did happen and that was I thought that all of the necessary brick work was quoted at the start of the job but Andy later found that there was a large problem spot that he did not see when quoting the job. We worked this out but was not something that I had expected.

Andy closely inspected the job near the end and found some areas that needed improvement which they took care of and went above and beyond what was originally expected. A lot of this had to do with minimizing efflorescence and matching the mortar between the old and the new. Andy is a perfectionist which is a great asset when doing historic renovations. I know that Andy has already demonstrated his standing behind his work (needed a minor touch up at a missed spot on the chimney and was quickly corrected) which is reassuring.

Andy and his crew are definitely my go to guys for any project involving masonry.
Riegelsville, PA Totally satisfied with the professional workers and workmanship of the job. Just beautiful!
