I hired Otto's Masonry to reopen and refurbish an old fireplace in our living room.
Otto was very prompt in his response to my request and was able to visit my house to estimate to job quickly.
The job involved locating the old existing fireplace, tearing out the lath and plaster wall covering it, tearing a part of the floor to pour hearth and closing off the chimney.
Otto's crew spent two days working on the fireplace. They were extremely punctual and clean. Their workmanship was excellent, the attention to detail was great.
Once the fireplace was opened it came to our attention that the opening and the hearth would have to be moved over by a foot to retain symmetry within the room. The crew was able to do this without a pushing the schedule and increasing the cost.
New hearth was poured as well as well as a pad for an ethanol burning insert.
Chimney was reinforced and closed off as the ethanol fireplace does not require venting (clean, modern, eco-friendly solution).
Overall the crew did a great job with an immaculate finish.
Well done and thank you!
