Chicago Violation Repairs

Masonry and Tuckpointing Chicago

Crown Roofing & Masonry will correct city violations and pull correct permits.  If you happen to get a letter from the City of Chicago or from the Village or Town that you live in regarding a building violation, give us a call and we can assist you in repairing the violation. A violation typically requires a permit to be obtained and the masonry work must be completed prior to your court date. Sometimes plans will need to be drawn up by a licensed architect or engineer or a report may be needed.

Crown Roofing & Masonry can take care of everything needed in order to remove the violation from your Chicagoland building. We guarantee the repairs will reasonably match the existing construction. Contact Us today for a free estimate with an experienced Chicagoland Masonry professional.


Most people are not aware that when a building owner receives a violation, two different cases are opened simultaneously. The court case typically requires an attorney to show that the work is complete. This is the time that a fine may be received, or the case may be continued or dismissed. There is also the case with the Building Department. The city wants to ensure a licensed professional performs the repairs and pulls the necessary permits. If the court case is dismissed, or closed, it does not guarantee that the Building department removed the Violation from the building’s records.

Crown Roofing & Masonry has many years of experience dealing with these types of violations. If the court case was dismissed because the work was done, but no permit, if required, was pulled, then the next time a contractor goes to pull a permit for your building the same violation will appear again. A new permit will not be issued until the old violations are taken care of. The next time a violation is given to the building, these old violations will appear again.

When a court case is opened for a new violation and the inspector notes that the old violations either were not repaired, or a permit was not issued for the repairs, then the court case will either be re-opened or the old violations will be added to the new court case. Higher fines will more likely be given at this point.

Typically the Building Department will want all the violations to be repaired under one permit. Crown Roofing & Masonry can help with that. We are not only licensed as a masonry contractor, but also a General Contractor. If there are violations for the interior of the building and the exterior, then a General Contractor License will be required to obtain a permit with all violation repairs stated on one permit.


When you contact Crown Roofing & Masonry, we will consult with you on-site to determine whether tuckpointing or other techniques will be beneficial to you. If tuckpointing is the right strategy, we will clean and prepare the surface before putting in the new mortar to fill the gaps. Tuckpointing is highly effective at improving the condition of your property.
