J&J Masonry Fireplace and Masonry Restoration Specialists

Masonry Projects

"Staycations" are becoming an increasingly popular way for families to spend their down time. The idea is simple - rather than sitting in traffic to get to your place of peace, let us bring this place to you.

In addition to fireplaces, we also specialize in wood-fired pizza ovens, outdoor kitchens, timber pergolas, stone patios, harvest/stone furniture, wine cellars, bars and much more.

Allow us to completely transform your outdoor living space into an area of tranquility and relaxation.

Testimonials

Just a little note to thank you so much for the incredible stone work you did on our front pillars and stairs. In today's age, it's nice to see that there are still some tradesman who take pride in the work they do and have it reflect in their workmanship. We'd also like to commend you on your professionalism and craftsmanship and the final job has exceeded our expectations.

Sincerely, Brenda & Martin

In the summer of 2000 we had our basement renovated. This included a gas fireplace with decorative stone surrounding it.

The stone work was done by J & J Masonry. We were so happy with the workmanship that when we found ourselves in need for a mason to do our pool shed, J & J Masonry were the first people we thought of. In one day they were able to finish the stone work and left us with a beautiful pool shed for all our neighbours to admire. J & J Masonry are the first people we would call for any masonry work we need and are also the people we would refer to family and friends.
