   We appreciated your professionalism and expertise

"Dear Paul, Tim and I could not be more pleased with our new fireplace - it looks fantastic! When we were considering the job of not only repairing our cracked firebox and exterior chimney masonry but also redesigning the interior wall, mantel and surround, we found the project quite overwhelming - thank goodness we found Custom Masonry Fireplace and Design!

In addition to being thrilled with the final result, we appreciated your professionalism and expertise throughout the project, from assessing the structural repairs needed to helping us sift through our many options to arrive at a design and materials that are in keeping with our home and surroundings. Your experience, exceptional work and attention to detail, as well as your friendly and helpful demeanor throughout the project, made your company a pleasure to work with. Tim can hardly wait for winter to arrive to light our first fire! We highly recommend you to anyone reading this testimonial, and will certainly pass your name to anyone we hear of looking for fireplace redesign or repair. "

   Paul was very professional in every aspect of his work

"Paul Walker, of Custom Masonry and Fireplace Design, was hired to modify and update our existing fireplace. Together with Paul's knowledge of fireplace construction and design we were able to achieve our goal. Paul was very professional in every aspect of his work, very polite, and always on time. By its nature, this type of work creates quite a mess, but Paul was always careful to completely cover everything that might be affected. Both my wife and myself would be pleased to highly recommend Paul Walker to anyone interested in fireplace construction and design."

   Guided us through to a fantastic finished product

"My wife Nicholle and I contracted with Paul to build an outdoor barbecue and fireplace. We had in mind a typical L-shaped island like we had seen at many of the home improvement stores and home design fairs up at the Del Mar Fairgrounds. Paul met with us, looked at our existing space, and custom designed something that was truly more than we had ever dreamed of. The best part of all was that it did not cost much more than those pre-fabricated ones we had seen at the shows. Paul and his assistant were punctual, hardworking, fast, and extremely professional from start to finish. He really listened to our ideas and guided us through to a fantastic finished product. We use our new barbecue and fireplace all the time to entertain, or just to have a quiet dinner outdoors. We really feel like we have more of a San Diego lifestyle now that we spend more time outdoors. It seems that whenever we have a get together with friends, the first fifteen minutes is spent listening to compliments on our new addition and how they wish they had something similar. It is really a great focal point, and probably the best investment we’ve made to improving our home. Thank you Paul! "

   Class A Operation

"Hi There, this is a quick note to let anyone know, if they have ruined their fireplace like I did, and rendered it totally useless..(Tried to remove some old ugly bricks, all it did was make a huge ugly hole). Made the call to Paul, he was out to my house, in no time and gave us a great price to take care of my not so handy DIY... Not only did he repair our fireplace, change the damper,mount a gorgeous mantel and created a beautiful rustic river-rock walll with the arched opening, that I wanted...They had all the work completed quickly and with out any fuss, and were a pleasure to deal with on every level.....Having this done, has given me a new sense of pride in my home, that was just not there before...What a "Class A operation", they receive our highest recommendation.

   Paul helped us get the look we wanted

"My husband and I are very pleased with the appearance of our new fireplace and how well it fits the size and look of our master bedroom. Paul's ability to visualize the fireplace before it was built helped us to design the fireplace with the proper proportions. Paul was quick and professional when building the fireplace while communicating all design decisions with us, which helped us get the look we wanted. Paul was mindful about the details and easy to work with. Guests and other building contractors that have seen the fireplace have all commented about the nice work that he did. "

It wasn't a fire place, but a work of art.
"When I came home from work, Custom Masonry was just finishing our fireplace as they promised. I walked in to the room and just couldn't stop looking at it. The fire place had turned out much better than I had anticipated. It was stunning. It wasn't a fire place, but a work of art. I look forward to enjoying our living room "center piece" for many years to come. Thank you Paul for being professional, timely, and talented."

   Chimney....focus point of our outdoor living space.

"We asked Paul Walker to look at our masonry fireplace after our chimney sweeper discovered that we had a chimney fire. Paul explained to us what the best course of action would be since the bricks of our almost 50 year old chimney are no longer made. His suggestions not only saved us money but also beautified our chimney. He worked fast but also paid attention to the smallest detail. Our chimney is now definitely a work of art and a focus point of our outdoor living space."
