With over 30 years of experience in jobs ranging from chimney rebuilds to old home restorations, Bowman Masonry Restorations is the crew to achieve the brickwork of your dreams.
For the love of brickwork
Incorporated in 2005, and in business since 1981, Bowman Masonry Restoration Ltd. is now in its 37th year of serving the Southern Ontario area. Guy Bowman, owner, became interested in masonry after apprenticing with a family friend. He grew to love the intricacies of brick and mortar, discovering how fireplaces work, and how to improve their design.
Bowman puts extra emphasis on the final valuable product, the resulting fireplace, hearth, or piece of masonry work that the company completes. Rather than focusing on the dollar figure and profit at the end, Bowman’s ultimate goal is happy clients, resulting from well-done masonry work. Bowman and his crews instil a depth of quality of work and craftsmanship that sets them miles apart.

Bowman Masonry Restoration specialises in creating and designing fireplaces that are efficient and elegant. Guy is passionate about improving the fireplace situation in Toronto. One of the highlights of Bowman’s wheelhouse is the Rumford fireplace, designed by Count Rumford in the 1780s to correct smokey Victorian fireplaces. Whether you are seeking a refurbishment of an old fireplace or the creation of something new, Bowman is ready and able to help you with any sort of masonry task.

Bowman has high standards for fireplaces. They must work, the fireplace must draw properly, and it must be something the client will love and want to use.
In addition, they must be safe and designed with zero compromise to any applicable building codes and fireplace standards, to ensure that they are safe to use for years to come, used often, and with as large or small a fire as desired. Of course, the fireplaces must look good, aesthetically, to add value to the clients’ homes.
As one of the highlighted builders for Rumford fireplaces in the province of Ontario, and having worked with one of the largest architectural restoration companies in Ontario for historical restoration, Bowman Masonry (WETT certified) produces quality products with a professionalism and efficiency that is unparalleled.
