ARROW MASONRY RESTORATION is a small outfit located in Eastern Oregon that specializes in old masonry restoration and repair.  We perform work on both commercial and residential structures located  in eastern Oregon and Washington utilizing years and types of experiences that date back to around 1959.   
In addition to repairing and cleaning old masonry structures, we also do a wide range of services to maintain and protect our customers' existing masonry structures from future damaging water intrusions.

We also work with older materials such as glass block, glazed tile units, concrete masonry units, modular brick and all other out-dated, now-specialized materials.  Refurbishing adjoining windows and doors is a specialty of ours too.


                              When quality and professionalism are important, we will be there for you.

    This website was built at the requests of our potential customers located in Eastern Oregon and Washington State as a repository-of-sorts containing pictures of masonry projects dating back over 50 years showing our work in the masonry trade that gives them a general idea of our experiences and the qualifications gained from them. 
    Arrow Masonry Restoration is the only masonry restoration contractor currently operating in Eastern Oregon and Eastern Washington State and listed in the Oregon Preservation Contractor's Directory.  We are fully licensed, bonded, insured and qualified to give you answers to your masonry questions as well as excellent results for your masonry needs.  We welcome your questions and comments.

    Our outfit is small, but designed specifically to take care of the needs of local and surrounding clients who need work done on their masonry structures such as repair, restoration and small-to-medium-sized custom masonry projects around the business, farm, ranch or residence.  

   We also specialize in chimney repair and rebuilding as well as cultured stone.  All of our work is unconditionally guaranteed.

     In general, chimney repair is the majority of work requests we receive  from homeowners and businesses because chimneys that are over 20 years old and still being used are in some need of repair.   
   The dismantle/rebuild procedure requires the old deteriorating chimney to be dismantled and replaced with a new structure consisting of high-strength mortar, galvenized metal reinforcement and new masonry materials to replace the old soft, imperfectly fired, unreinforced, "Salmon brick" chimney.  Professional restucturing of old chimneys also help prevent deadly chimney fires. 

   Pictured below are just a few examples of local chimneys we have dismantled and rebuilt to not only restore their structural integrety and prevent water intrusion/damage, but to improve the overall appearance as well.
