About Us

Builders Fireplace and Stone can assist you in creating environments that help build relationships and achieve a connection.

We believe that fire has played a central role in the lives of mankind. It provides saety, warmth, and nourishment. Today, many of our most memorable experiences are enhanced by sitting around a fire. We connect with our loved ones and find deeper meaning in our lives when we blow out birthday candles on a cake, propose to a future spouse, and celebrate with candle light dinners. Friends and family join us for cook outs around the grill and sing by a campfire.

We find comfort and joy around the hearth.

Builders Fireplace and Stone remains a local family-owned business. Since the year 2000, we have provided expertise in design and installation — along with the materials and craftsmanship for people to enjoy the warmth and beauty of a fireplace in their homes.

We offer a complete line of fireplaces, wood stoves, and firepits. We also have a wide selection of natural and cultured stone for indoor or outdoor applications.
