Gralak Masonry Contractors has proudly served Chicago and its near north and northwest suburbs since 1991.
We offer peace of mind, uncompromising quality, and excellent workmanship for those who own residential or commercial buildings made of masonry. We are insured and bonded.
We focus on quality in all that we do. Hear what our customers have to say.
Masonry units are any exterior bricks, blocks, stones, and tiles held together by mortar. Masonry, then, is used to construct buildings and other support structures.
At Gralak Masonry Contractors, we repair, restore, protect, rebuild, and preserve masonry.
Masonry services protect your building and your health
Water is arguably the biggest threat to your Chicago or suburban home or building.
At Gralak, we prevent water damage as well as deteriorating mortar and masonry decay. Therefore, we help protect what is likely your largest investment: your home, apartment building, or commercial office.
Additionally, our masonry services keep snow melt and rainwater where they should be—outside your home. By deterring the seepage of water into your building, we help avert the growth of mold and other microorganisms. These microorganisms often cause musty odors, and they can make you physically ill.

Our Clients Say
“Best tuckpointing and waterproofing in our neighborhood (Lincoln Park), they come highly recommended. They sealed/tuckpointed our cinder blocks , brick walls and windows flashings. Mr Gralak was chosen over 6-7 different contractors. Nobody is better then him. His workers are knowledgeable, friendly, neat -genuine masons. Five stars for them with the highest recommendations!”
“I can’t recommend Gralak and his crew enough. From the attentive and careful quote through the foundation repair and chimney rebuild they did for us, everyone was professional. They arrived when they promised and did the job in the time they said they would. I wish all contractors and crew were this conscientious.”
“We needed maintenance tuckpointing on our building’s graystone facade. We are in the East Lakeview area and I wanted to stay local with our choice of contractor. My visit with Gralak was a better, more comprehensive question-filled conversation than I had with the others. Their price was fair, the work was excellent and we’re set for years to come. I’d recommend them in a heartbeat. The owner was a phone call away anytime I reached out to him. That kind of service is hard to come by.”
We stand behind the quality of our craft. To that end, we offer the Gralak Guarantee.
