We were very pleased with the manner in which Josh Dengler of Southpaw Masonry refinished our fireplace. He had good communication with us throughout the project and was attentive to our wishes regarding the style of the fireplace. He finished the refacing of the fireplace in two days, which was the timeframe he had suggested to us when he came to give us an estimate. He was professional and friendly while working in our home. We are pleased with the finished look of the fireplace.

Josh Dengler, Southpaw Masonry, worked with us to disassemble an existing gas fire place and a surrounding 9′ X 9′ flagstone wall and hearth and rebuild it in a new configuration. The objective was to remove the hearth and relocate the fire place at floor level, install a stone mantel, and provide an opening above the mantel for a 55″ flat screen TV.
Josh met with us to look at the job and consult with us about what we wanted. Our desire was to have the stone wall surrounding the fire place to provide architectural structure and an interesting rock texture which would be painted to match the room wall paint. We did not want the natural stone color to dictate the paint pallet for the room. Josh made several very useful suggestions about how the stone work could be done and the use of tile on the floor to give the effect of a hearth and ground the fire place.
The job was professionally done on a time and material basis and within the time frame Josh had estimated. The job site was kept as neat and tidy as stone work could be done. We are very pleased with the process and the results.
It was a pleasure to work with Josh on this project.

Josh Dengler at Southpaw Masonry delivered the highest level of craftsmanship we have ever experienced in home improvement. We were given Josh’s business card by a local stone and brick company while seeking a local mason to complete a hearth and surround for a gas fireplace we were having installed. Josh returned our call within fifteen minutes and was at our home within an hour to provide us with a quote. Josh was truly interested in designing a fireplace that would fit our needs and suggested using local, natural stone for our application. We knew early on that Josh was the best person for our project as he was passionate about his profession.
The design process was seamless. Josh communicated with us frequently to ensure our satisfaction. The installation took only two days and the finished product was breathtaking. Josh transformed our bland, cold family room into a comfy, warm retreat for us to enjoy for years to come.
We would highly recommend Josh because his puts his heart into his profession. He is down-to-earth and he takes pride in his trade.
