Stone Veneer Fireplace

My wife and I are beyond thrilled with the fabulous job that Bernd did!! His work is absolutely masterful and he is so professional in everything he does, right from the first email response onwards. Bernd is a man who keeps to his commitment around time and craftsmanship. We feel so privileged to have had him build our fireplace and it surpasses what we thought was possible. We are lucky that we chose Bernd to create this for us and will now enjoy spending lots of time living in this room with our stunning fireplace. Anyone who gets Bernd to work for them is in for a treat. Thank you so much Bernd for creating a fireplace that we will love forever.

Hi Dan & Linda,
Thank you so much for taken the time to write such a "glowing" review. It was an honour and a pleasure to work for/with you. Like I've said in other responses, I am very fortunate indeed to deal with customers such as yourselves in most cases. Life is just too short to have it otherwise. I'm at a stage in my professional life where I pretty much pick and choose and my choices are beneficial for both, my customers and myself. I wouldn't want it any other way! Not that I'm not doing my very best on any project, I do, but you're bound to make that little extra effort in a situation where everyone feels comfortable and appreciative. Thank you for your trust in me and for all of your help :) Enjoy!

Amazing work. We are thrilled with the fireplace. Bernd is a perfectionist and a really likeable guy.
We will definitely go back to him for any stone work in the future.
Thanks Bernd for making our family room updated and beautiful.

Bernd was very maticulious, a craftmaster that would be hard to find.
gate was completed two years ago and it looks like it was just finished.
He was such a perfectionist that his work stood the test of time.
highly recommend him for any masonry work

Fix gaps and holes in 25 year old retaining walls

Bernd is a master craftsman. I needed lots of different patches and fixes to our retaining walls. He came by my home twice to review the job and then did an outstanding job matching the mortar and integrating the fixes to make the wall look just as it should. He was honest with me at all times -- he could have done the job in the rain or cold -- but called me regularly recommending we wait till the climate and conditions were right to do the repairs so they would last. Very appreciative of his professionalism and quality work.

Thank you for that Lois and for taking the time. It has always been my belief that every customer, every job, deserves the same consideration and my full attention to detail. No matter the size of the project! I like to think that I give all of my customers full value for their money and more. We do go the extra mile!

Reface Old Fireplace

Bernd from B&B Masonry was contracted to make our 25 year old unattractive wood burning fireplace the centerpiece of our home. He made the trip out to our home before the job started to give us his expert advice which was greatly appreciated. He was meticulous is his work, ensuring each piece of stone looked perfect, the photos show the outstanding quality of his work. He worked hard to get the job done in a timely manner and to top it off he always tidied up after himself! We love our new fireplace and can't wait to enjoy it this winter with family and friends.

Thank you very much Michael! I very much enjoyed creating the "centrepiece" in your home. It's always something special when I'm given the freedom to carve out of stone the vision that's in my head and make the customer happy and proud to present their new focal point. It was not an easy stone to work with and it required time to make it look the way that you can see it now. But here too.......I love a challenge! Makes life interesting and my profession worthwhile. Enjoy! Thank you again.

wine cellar

I met Bernd (B & B Masonry) this year while he was at one of my job sites, dealing with one of my sub trades.
I am a 35 year contractor, with over 100 houses and commercial projects completed.
I know average work, and I know good work.
Bernd is the best mason that I have ever had the pleasure of working with. (and I have known many over the years)

Our first project together was a wine cellar.
It was quite complicated with many corners, cabinets, and glass walls to contend with.
We talked about what I wanted, and what he suggested, then he went to work.
It became obvious, that he didn't need any assistance or direction from me, but he still gave me the courtesy of daily comments and suggestions.
Bernd created the perfect "vintage, stone, wine cellar".

Our next project was stone facing on the side and front of one of my houses in the British Properties.
They were very difficult stones to work with, and I actually had one mason decline the job, because of the difficulty.
It is not an exaggeration to say that he cut and chiselled more than 90% of the stones on two or three sides because they were not perfect for what he wanted.
It is the best stone work that I have ever had on one of my houses in all my years in the business.
We have had customers, tradesmen, contractors, and other masons come by to look at it.
Bernd is that good.

Besides being the best mason I've ever met, Bernd (and his assistant, Danny) both have good work ethic.
They keep their work area organized and clean.
They worked well with my owners, with me, and with the other trades on my job site. (not always an easy thing)

WOW! That's quite the review Tim and very much appreciated. Thank you so much for taking the time out of your busy schedule. I thoroughly enjoyed working with you in creating the work that you were so detailed in describing. And you would know how much detail means to me :). All of our work is important to us and so are our customers. We don't play favourites and treat everyone equal and with the same attention for detail. Still, once in a while an unusual project comes our way, one that has that added degree of difficulty, such as this one. And I love a challenge and I believe that I met it head on! Everyone is happy with the outcome, including and foremost, the owners. Thank you! I consider this a real feather in my cap. Looking forward to the next project.

Custom Wine Cellar Installation

We hired B&B Masonry to install stone for a very high-end wine cellar project of ours. Bernd and his assistant worked quickly and efficiently to complete the installation and the finished product was beautiful. The homeowner client was so pleased they hired B&B Masonry to complete other stone installation on the exterior of the home. We would highly recommend this company.

Thank you so much for your appreciation. It was a pleasure to create the stone background for this exquisite cellar in which, no doubt, many happy hours will be experienced and enjoyed whilst sampling the grape. Oh to be part of that in this very unique way. Thank you!

Excellent Craftsmanship

While looking for an experienced Stonemason to resurface an existing brick wall on our home, we came across B&B Masonry after reading the excellent reviews on Homestars. Bernd and his team fit us into their busy schedule and did an outstanding job, using a beautiful cultured stone facing which has greatly enhanced the look of our home. We were thoroughly impressed with Bernd's attention to detail and his craftsmanship - in fact, we have already recommended him to two friends of ours looking to do similar projects in the future. Thank you Bernd - it was a pleasure working with you.

Excellent work by Bernd

Bernd restored our old brick wall and coordinated the appearance perfectly with the existing brick even when using new materials. The result looks better than I could have imagined and came in under budget. Also, he and his assistant were so pleasant that I was sorry to see the job come to an end. They have my strongest recommendation.

Appreciation such as yours makes it all worth the while for us. Thank you so much David. It was a pleasure working for you and Nancy. The view of English Bay and the North Shore only enhanced this :). I have the good fortune, and training, to be able to count versatility as one of my strongest assets. I find it pleasing when I have the opportunity to work with brick in an environment that consists mainly of wood and stone. So thank you again and we are looking forward to connect again soon.
