The 6 Gralak Principles

Just as bricks or cement blocks have six sides, Gralak Masonry Contractor abides by six Core Principles that guide our company:

Personal Consultations

When you schedule your appointment with Gralak Masonry Contractor, you won’t meet with a random salesperson or a hired assistant. Instead, you’ll meet directly with Owner Radoslaw Gralak (pronounced RAD-a-slov GRAY-lak). He’ll personally inspect your home, multi-family dwelling, or commercial property. He’ll also be able to identify the root cause of problem areas and estimate costs.

Pride in Workmanship

We stand behind the quality of our craft. To that end, we offer the Gralak Guarantee. Additionally, we keep every worksite clean and tidy.

Proficiency in Masonry

Radoslaw has passed a rigorous exam as a supervising mason, and our company is licensed as a masonry contractor certified by the city of Chicago. We have proudly served Chicago and its nearby suburbs since 1991, which makes us one of the most experienced masonry contractors in the Chicagoland area.

Passion for Our Trade and Excellent Teamwork

You will not meet a masonry contractor or team more passionate about his trade than our owner, Radoslaw Gralak. Furthermore, Gralak Masonry hires one of Chicago’s most motivated and experienced teams. Plus, Radoslaw’s enthusiasm is contagious. Our team is very collaborative, and we work well together.


We focus on quality in all that we do. To that end, we have maintained an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau since we applied to the BBB nearly 30 years ago. Additionally, we have received the following awards:

  • Chicago’s Pulse on the City Award (2017) for Excellence in Customer Satisfaction
  • Best of Chicago Award in the Stone Wall Builders category for 2014.
  • Angie’s List (now Angi): Super Service Awards (2010 and 2011), each a distinction only 5% of companies achieve.
  • See Gralak Masonry Score on BuildZoom; we rank in the top 5% of Illinois licensed contractors.
