We carry both class B and C masonry licenses (license #MC6627-4) issued from the City of Chicago, Department of Buildings. These licenses permit us to legally perform concrete and brick work, as well as obtaining permits when needed.
Due to a lack of enforcement, approximately 9 out of 10 contractors performing extensive masonry repairs in Chicago lack a class C license and are not adequately insured.
As an educated consumer, do your due diligence before hiring a contractor because, unfortunately, not all contractors share our commitment to the profession. Don’t assume or take a contractor’s word for it, demand to see the physical license and make sure it has not expired. If the contractor can’t produce a current license, continue your search for a licensed masonry contractor in Chicago.
