Pioneer Masonry Restoration Company has been in the facade restoration and waterproofing business since our founding in 1957. In this time we have completed over 15,000 projects throughout the Pacific Northwest, Alaska, Canada, the Czech Republic, Romania, China and Russia.
We have built the most skilled and experienced team in the business. Most of our key personnel have been with us for over 20 years; many for over 25 years. We believe this broad base of experience in all phases of façade restoration and waterproofing give us the knowledge to approach our work with skill and confidence.
We also believe we have developed a reputation for quality work, customer service and for approaching our work in an ethical and professional manner.
