Today we finished to chimney that needed to be plastered. Plastering is a great way to fix a chimney that needs to be rebuilt. when done right, plastering is effective and durable. And saves on cost.
On March 17th we start a driveway installation. With this driveway, Unilock stone was chosen. Most contractors install pavers and stone on a sand & gravel base. But here at G.H. Erickson & Son this is not a lasting process when sand is used. For a driveway to hold up, it must be done with a concrete base. When done right, it will be completely maintenance free. Please examine the following pictures to see from start to finish how a quality driveway is installed using stone. Feel free to contact us for more information.

Tuckpointing is a great way to repair damage to a masonry surface. The largest problem with Tuckpointing is getting it done right. One way is that after grinding the joints, it must be washed out. If not , dust from the grinding will keep the new masonry from adhearing.
We had to come Chicago for some equipment and decided to stop at the shore. Beautiful day!! Chicago does have a lot to offer. It was extremely busy there because that week there was a event that took up about 5 city blocks at the park. It's amazing that they can have some type of order with that many people in one location.
We are rebuilding a chimney in Havana, Illinois this week. I stopped in a local hardware store and they are closing soon. It's sad to see local hardware stores closing. A lot of the large home improvement stores have sure affected smaller stores. But for anyone that owns a small hardware store, thanks for stay open!!!
