Fireplace (Linda Nehra)
As promised here are a few pictures of the fireplace. I wanted to let you know how pleased we are with the fine craftsmanship. The natural colour variation in the stone was highlighted by the excellent masons, who used the variation to our advantage. We have received many compliments on the stone work, and friends have told us it transformed our room. I would also like to say how nice the masons were to have around the house, and how well they worked together to complete the project.
Dry Stack Wall and Garden Area - North Saanich (Kiri)
Hi Gavin and Dennis,
I am so happy with your crew John and Joe, and with the work, and Dennis with your kind and patient manner! It looks great, and those 2 guys were amazing. I will certainly write on the website and when I've planted the garden beds in the spring, I'll send you a photo. So pretty! Thanks!
Custom BBQ Station - Sidney (Ken Summers)
This year I decided to put in an Outdoor Kitchen and after checking out potential masonry companies and on the recommendation of a stone supplier familiar with the work of local companies, engaged Heritage Masonry to do the rock work. This was a good decision. The work was completed by Gavin Chamberlain and his team very much to my satisfaction. Their work was competent and professional with careful attention to detail as pictures of the Outdoor Kitchen attest. We are very pleased with the outcome.
I have absolutely no hesitation or reservation in recommending Heritage Masonry to others.
Dry Stack Wall - Sidney (June Whitlow)
"I found Gavin, Dan and Craig to be highly skilled and painstaking masons who used their artistic and technical knowledge to construct a remarkable wall. They produced an amazing “dry stack” rock wall with a complementary beautiful curved stairwell. We have had no end of admiration from on-lookers and I am looking forward to enjoying their creation for years to come. Their design perfectly compliments our Tuscan-style home and we are delighted with their work."
Heritage Wall - Oak Bay (Mike Miles)
"Gavin, Craig and Dan rebuilt our 25 m long by 1.6 m high double sided front wall and four pillars in the summer of 2012. They did a grand job on this sizable project. We have received many compliments on the quality of the work and the efforts they undertook to preserve the character of the original wall in this heritage neighbourhood. Gavin, Craig and Dan were great fun to have around, worked diligently and kept the place looking tidy. The masonry work is of high quality and I would highly recommend "Heritage Masonry" if you need to undertake a similar project. Don't hesitate to drive by 645 Island Road in Oak Bay if you would like to see our lovely new wall."
Drystone Wall Restoration - (Johnny and Nadene Carline)
"We recently did extensive renovations on our rural property and as part of that we sought to have a stone wall built in the style of traditional English country dry stone walls. The first attempt did not come close to our expectations and as a result we were left with a wall that was too displeasing to let stand but too expensive to tear down and start over. Our general contractor then found us Gavin and his firm: Heritage Masonry. Though they would have undoubtedly have preferred to start from scratch (and we wish they had had that opportunity) they accepted the 'rescue mission' and carried it out with the utmost professionalism and vigour. They were extremely competent, paid attention to detail, were wonderful to deal with, and as a bonus charged a very reasonable fee. They will certainly get any future work we have of this nature and we would recommend them to any individual or general contractor who could use the services they offer."
Wall and Firepit (Stephen Melanson)
"Conscientious and hardworking, Gavin & Craig delivered a beautiful firepit and stone wall on time, on budget and with a smile. We are extremely pleased with his company's craftsmanship and would definitely use the services of Heritage Masonry in any future project."
Various Maintenance (Doug Harding)
"I am the Property Manager and Head Gardener on a 3 acre property and I have hired the services of Heritage Masonry to do various jobs in the past. I was very pleased with the excellent job that Gavin did for me and have hired him again this season. Gavin is a hard worker with great knowledge and a strong work ethic. I am looking forward to working with Gavin again this year."
