10/10

This was not a big job but timing and skillful execution were important. Guy Bowman reviewed the job in advance and the crew arrived on the assigned day well prepared for the tasks. One of the items was to cut channels into block walls at the edge of the playing surface of squash court walls. we paid a fair price for very good service.

The flue tiles in our 27-year-old chimney were cracked and falling apart. Guy Bowman explained that stucco around the chimney did not breathe like brick does, hence moisture trapped inside damaged the flue tiles during annual freeze and thaw cycling. The rebuild was difficult due to limited space, but Bowman Masonry Restoration Ltd erected a scaffold and did a wonderful job. They demolished the old chimney and rebuilt a new one with brick. The chimney looks great and there was no damage to our property or our neighbour's. I would strongly recommend Bowman Masonry Restoration Ltd. They are courteous, competent, efficient and reliable.

Chimney rebuild in downtown Toronto to replace reclaimed bricks that were chipping. A job very well done - no surprises on scope of work or quote. Would highly recommend Bowman.

Bowman masonry did an excellent job for me. They completed my project in a timely manor, worked safely using scaffolding and tie-offs, and left a clean work site. I found the them to be very professional. I would use them again.

Bowman Masonry Restoration Ltd. completed a rebuild of 3 double chimneys on our house. This was a big project that they completed with great attention to detail, keeping the site clean and doing quality work in a timely manner. We were very impressed by the detailed brick design which matched the original artistic brick layout that was originally used. All of the people involved in the work were very respectful and considerate and great to interact with. I would highly recommend using Bowman Masonry.

My house on Palmerston Blvd in The Annex is over 100 years old and had holes in the chimney. I'd called another chimney company whose name I got from HomeStars. I was going to go with them but decided to get a 2nd quote.

My 70-year old roofer with a world of experience told me to call Guy Bowman. Excellent trades typically recommend one another.

Guy's quote came in a fair bit less than the first quote probably because the first guy gets a commission and factors that in. Guy's quote was also more detailed.

His crew was super-polite, friendly, knowledgeable and considerate of the property, both inside and outside. Everything was covered up to ensure nothing got damaged.

I've already referred a neighbor to Bowman Masonry and hope to use them to rebuild a garage on another property.

Many companies were not interested in our restoration project, but Bowman was willing to take it on. Excellent service from the whole family. On time, tidy and great work. Highly recommend them!

Guy Bowman did an amazing job on rebuilding our old almost unusable fireplace with a Rumford fireplace. They demolished our old hearth and rebuild the entire thing, including a new liner and a Rumford fireplace which gives us amazing fires (easy to light and maintain). Their work included a beautiful natural brick fireplace surround and hearth which look so great that we decided not to tile it. Guy was always pleasant and on time and budget! I highly recommend Guy and the Rumford system.

The Chimney looks great! They did a great job of matching the bricks. Also, the finishing touches are well done as well. The crew was professional and left the site very clean. We would highly recommend them.

Guy Bowman is the best. He made sure to get the job done on time and he personally came back to make a small alteration when a measurement was in question. The guy is also pretty slick with a masonry saw.
