Today is Micro-, Small, Medium Enterprise Day.

Small businesses are not only the backbone of the local St. Louis economy, but they’re also part of the global economic fabric. Today, June 27th is a day designated by the United Nations as Micro-, Small, Medium Enterprise Day.

Massey Tuckpointing and Masonry, a WBE-owned, family-owned St. Louis business, is part of the local, regional, national and world’s economic engines. In addition to employing 10 Missourians, Massey Tuckpointing also does business with many outstanding local retailers and service providers. By doing business with local small businesses and hiring locals for the majority of their business needs, they keep money and talent in Missouri and grow the local economy. We are proud of our work, reputation, employees, and contributions as a small enterprise.

Since 2017 and after a declaration from the UN, Micro-, Small and Medium-sized businesses have celebrated this day in recognition of their work in local and global economies. These micro, small, and medium-sized companies generally employ fewer than 250 persons, and are the backbone of economies worldwide and play a key role in developing countries.

According to the United Nations and data furnished by the International Council for Small Business (ICSB), formal and informal Micro-, Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (MSMEs) comprise over 90% of all firms globally and account on average for 60-70% of total employment and 50% of the world’s GDP.

The UN General Assembly, recognizing the importance of micro-, small and medium businesses, decided in 2017 to declare 27 June the Micro-, Small and Medium-sized Enterprises Day to raise public awareness of these enterprises’ contributions to sustainable development and local economies around the world.

Massey Tuckpointing and Masonry will continue to deliver superior tuckpointing services to St. Louis and St. Louis Metro customers and businesses. We look forward to contributing to the local, regional, national, and global economies. Please support small businesses whenever possible. Small businesses create jobs and have a great incentive for keeping their money and spending local, too.

Remember our Fallen Heroes.

Massey Tuckpointing & Masonry, a proud St. Louis company with veteran employees, family members, and friends, want to take a moment to remember the brave men and women that paid the ultimate sacrifice to protect us all. Please take a moment today and remember why we celebrate Memorial Day.

“We highly recommend Massey”–T. Texier

“Denny and Bill from Massey (Tuckpointing) did an outstanding job repairing our fireplace. Their work was neat and the finished product looks great–the bricks even match the color of our 60-year-old original bricks. We highly recommend Massey Tuckpointing & Masonry!”–Thomas Texier

Do Creosote Logs Work?

Have You Ever Wondered If Those CSL Logs Work?

Many of our St. Louis tuckpointing and chimney cleaning customers have asked us about the effectiveness of those advertised creosote logs, and their effectiveness in reducing or eliminating dangerous creosote buildup in their chimneys.

The simple answer is, yes. A recognized chimney cleaning industry organization, The Chimney Institute of America, say they do, but there’s more to the story. Sole reliance on a creosote log to clean your chimney thoroughly is not wise. A creosote log is not enough to ensure a safe season of using and enjoying your fireplace. While a creosote log helps remove some creosote, there’s still creosote left behind.

Creosote, as many homeowners already know, is a dangerous sticky, flammable substance that attaches to your chimney’s walls and chimney flue. While creosote chimney logs can help, they’re no substitute for a professional chimney inspection and thorough cleaning. While the log can help dehydrate the creosote and make it fall off easier, only a professional chimney inspection and cleaning can remove creosote to optimum levels.

Creosote is not the only concern when it comes to your St. Louis chimney or fireplace. Animals, debris, bird nests, missing mortar, damaged flue liners, damaged or missing chimney caps, loose bricks, etc. can also lead to dangerous and costly chimney issues if they’re left unchecked.

Don’t take chances with your home or your family’s safety, book a professional chimney inspector and chimney sweep for true peace of mind.

The professional tuck pointers, chimney repair pros, and chimney sweeps at Massey Tuckpointing & Masonry have been serving St. Louis and the St. Louis Metro customers for decades.  We know how to make sure your chimney is in optimum condition and working safely.

Call Massey Tuckpointing & Masonry and schedule your professional St. Louis chimney inspection and cleaning. We are ready to serve you.

“Lifesavers!”–D. Cowser

“Lifesavers! – Needed last min tuckpointing on my chimney to pass a local presale inspection. Massey was able to fit me in with little notice, and they came out and did a quality job. When I needed extra copies of lien waivers and receipts for the title company, they came through at a moments notice. Spring was wonderful to deal with and always got back to me when she said she would (which is rare with contractors these days). THANK YOU MASSEY!!!!!”–D. Cowser
