Daniel McCaffrey is a licenced home renovator qualified in masonry restoration, concrete technologies, unit masonry laying and masonry construction. Daniel began his apprenticeship at age 12, repairing and restoring field stone houses in Bruce County, Ontario. As a high school student in Toronto, Daniel spent summers working on landscape construction projects in the Beaches and East York. After high school, Daniel worked on commercial and industrial concrete construction projects with Polymeric Engineering, under the guidance of Bruce Armitage, P Eng.
At age 24, Daniel undertook an environmental studies degree at U of T. Unable to work full construction seasons, he summered in residential brick and stone renovation and restoration projects, and continued full-time in this field after graduation, studying the Ontario Building Code at George Brown College, concurrently. He broke out on his own in 2014 and has not looked back. Daniel applies his specialized masonry skills to all hardscape construction projects, delivering an attractive and enduring product that few 'landscaping' companies can rival.
