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
In addition to being thrilled with the final result, we
appreciated your professionalism and expertise throughout the project,

work and attention to detail, as well as your friendly and helpful
demeanor throughout the project, made your company a pleasure to work

an intricate design
Fireplace Design was a pleasure
to work with. My fireplace had an intricate design and they were detail
oriented, well organized, and conscientious. I have completed numerous
home improvement projects and worked with many Contractors. I would
recommend Paul Walker and his crew to anyone."
professional in every aspect of his work
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."

through to a fantastic finished product
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

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.

worked daily until it was complete.
Thanks Paul, I love my fireplace. All the best! "

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. "

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."

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."
Here are the pics of the fireplace and chimney. We have not had a fire
yet, but will be looking forward to it this fall and winter. We love
the way it came out and can't thank you enough. We will happily be
sending customers your way should the opportunity come up.
Take care. "
