J. Burton stone masonry, natural stone fireplaces and fire surrounds.
JB Stone Masonry makes a wide range of styles of stone fireplaces, surrounds and hearths for local customers in Chester and Wrexham as well as for those further away across Cheshire, Flintshire, Denbighshire and the Wirral.
Natural stone fireplaces have a look that cannot be matched by other materials. We combine traditional stone masonry techniques with the use of machinery to create just the look you are after for your fireplace. We have the facilities to design and craft any size of bespoke natural stone fireplace surround and/or natural stone fireplace hearths. We also make customised inglenook linings. Whether you want clean simple lines or a highly intricate handcrafted design, JB Stone Masonry will create the perfect fireplace to provide a stunning focal point in your room.
Using natural stone for fireplaces, fire surrounds and hearths
As highly skilled stonemasons, we can design and make natural stone fireplaces that give a wonderful traditional look to your home or building. Our natural stone fireplaces are suitable for use with electric fires, wood burning stoves and gas stoves as well as fireplace inserts. We work with a wide range of stone types for our fire surrounds and hearths. JB Stone Masonry is a specialist stone masonry supplier so we hold a good stock of natural stone at our Wrexham yard, particularly limestone and a variety of UK sandstones including Cheshire red sandstone.
Every job in natural stone is different. Each stone is sawn from large quarry blocks to your specified dimensions and then handcrafted. Please be aware this can be a lengthy process so make sure you leave plenty of time from the point of ordering your fireplace, surround or hearth to the point when you need it installed by.
Stone is a natural material like wood and, like wood, has a grain. The colours and patterns of natural stone enhance the beauty of our products. You would be very welcome to come to our yard to see our selection of sandstones, limestone and other natural stones – please give John a call on Wrexham (01978) 664006 or email email@example.com to arrange a visit.
How does our fireplace design process work?
JB Stone Masonry will help you design a unique bespoke fireplace for your home or building. We provide a full measuring and design service for every stone fireplace and use the highest standards of skill and workmanship creating our fireplaces. We will rise to any challenge you may set us! We can usually reproduce whatever features you may envisage and we will advise you if there could be an easier and more economical way to create the same effect you are after. Hearths can be sawn to any size and thickness and we can also make round or curved hearths.
We are happy to come out to any customers located in Chester and Wrexham as well as further afield in Cheshire, Flintshire, Denbighshire and the Wirral. We will carefully take all measurements to ensure your new fireplace, surround or hearth will work with your room, fire opening and chimney breast and discuss all the ideas you have. Using CAD, we will design your fireplace then submit the design proof to you either by email or on good old fashioned paper! This way you can make sure you are happy with the plan and if not, give any feedback necessary to ensure you get exactly what you want. One of our fireplace design proofs is shown below. Underneath that are some photos of the actual fire surround.

A final bit of advice. Natural stone is a porous material and may stain. You probably wouldn’t let someone put a glass of red wine down on your new carpet so don’t let them put it down on your natural stone fire surround either! The good news is natural stone can usually be cleaned. All you need is a bucket of clean water and a clean sponge or scrubbing brush (but not a wire brush).
If you are located in Cheshire, Flintshire, Wrexham, Denbighshire or the Wirral and are interested in finding out more about our fireplaces, please give John Burton a call on Wrexham (01978) 664006.
