About Chimney Work

We have dedicated crews who focus only on chimneys. Every chimney job is accessed using properly constructed scaffolding which complies fully with provincial safety standards. All our masons and labourers have completed Working at Heights training, and they maintain their certification yearly. Being able to access every chimney safely requires many components and equipment which are hard to source and costly to buy but we have the right equipment available in our job trailers and plenty more at our main compound.

The most important part of a chimney is the cap. A chimney is a hole in your house to vent out, but it is also a place where water and weather can get in. Because of this, the installation and maintenance of the chimney cap is of crucial importance. We always install a two-stage cap. The basic cap is made of Arriscraft stone, installed with the proper overhang and a drip edge. On top of that, we add a custom aluminum cap to create an impermeable surface that prevents any water infiltration. We seal around the flues or vents with a heat-resistant caulking that resists cracking despite the Canadian weather extremes.

All our chimney jobs are fully guaranteed.

Our chimney services include:


Rebuilding and reconstruction


Repointing and repair


Rehabilitation and restoration


Chimney caps and copings

I hired Stonehenge Masonry to repoint the exterior of my stone foundation in 2020. I liked them so much that I hired them again in 2021 to repoint the rest of the foundation after I removed an old deck. Shawna did the first job and led the second job. The work has held up very well over the last few years (I'm a little late writing this review!). I won't hesitate to hire them again in the future!

May 2024, I had Stonehenge Masonry replace two bricked window sills that had broken, cracked and split bricks with Indiana limestone sills. These came in 8 foot lenghts that were cut to fit in perfectly. My experience with this company's workers that I dealt with from start to finish were A+. They were professional, courteous, explained the work to be done and left a clean work site when they were done. Neighbours even expressed how nice the front of the house now looked.
