Frequently Asked Questions

Do you charge per square foot or by the hour?
North Shuswap Masonry charges per square foot; this insures we will complete a project in a timely manner. We only charge hourly for demolition or repair work.
Does your price change depending on the type of stone I chose?
When a product is chosen, and regardless of the type used, the price per square foot is the same. If a customer chooses natural rock or natural stone veneer, the square foot price will be higher. Our per square foot price is all inclusive; should the customer choose to supply the materials, the per square foot price will be less.
Do you offer any type of guarantee or warranty?
Yes, all our work is guaranteed.
Can you repair existing stone work?
If we are called upon for repairs, Gunnar will make every effort to match the existing work. However, we cannot guarantee work someone else has done.
My house currently has vinyl siding, I'm considering going with a stone veneer. Is it possible and how long will it last?
Yes, it is possible and stone is a good choice. It is maintenance free, adds to the insulation value of your home, and once applied properly will last a life time.
I have an old brick masonry fireplace, can it be changed to stone?
Yes, stone can be applied to anything. Brick or concrete however, is the best as it has the strongest bond; though if you choose to use natural stone, there must be either angle iron or a concrete base for support, whereas cultured stone does not need any extra support.
Do you work out of town?
Yes, we do travel - depending on how far we need to go, we may charge daily live-out.
What types of payment do you take?
We accept cheques, cash, e-transfers, Visa and Master Card
