Construction Services within Quebec
  1. Construction of masonry heaters, cookstoves and ovens from foundation to chimney top, in new or inhabited residences.
  2. Construction only of the refractory core, with back- up for the client or mason who would face the core, build the chimney, install the cast iron doors, and prepare a foundation. This allows the auto-constructor to be assured that the complicated refractory core is built correctly with quality materials, while still allowing scope for expression and saving on the facing and chimney work.
