What I Do
Clipper Masonry specializes in chimney repair and restoration: including mortar tuckpoints, total repoints, replacing mortar washcaps, complete teardown and rebuilds, using state-of-the-art restoration and dust control tools. Whether your mortar joints are deteriorated or your entire chimney is compromised, call me for a free written estimate of your chimney's current condition and my recommendation for repair.
While brick restoration and repair is a big part of my annual work, it by no means encompasses all the services I provide. I have a great passion for the art of stone masonry -- whether it be mortared stone walks, patios, walls, floors, fireplace and woodstove surrounds, hearths or veneers. Please click on the stone section to see some examples of my work using various stone types and stone-laying styles. If you would like to see some of my work up close, I have built some stone panels at Cascade Stone Supply in Burlington.
In addition to repair, restoration and stone, I enjoy the rhythm of brick and block laying, from brick veneers, surrounds and hearths, to block walls and manufactured home skirts.
Finally, indoors or out, I love to lay tile -- whether it be stone, slate, ceramic, or glass for floors, walls, wainscots, backsplashes, tub surrounds, showers, fireplace surrounds and hearths.

"Clipper Masonry was definitely the right choice for my chimney rebuild! Ben, the owner, does all of his own work with professional style and superior craftsmanship. Not only is he honest and dependable, he also has a delightful personality. Make the best choice for the best price and see for yourself!" Nancy B., Bellingham
"Ben, of Clipper Masonry, did a great job re-building the chimney on my 1924 Craftsman style house! He was on time for the bid/estimate, was completely done in less than a week and did a great job of cleaning up after himself. He was willing to answer all questions about the re-build process and knows a LOT about the restoration of old chimneys. I would highly recommend Ben and his company, Clipper Masonry." Ken E., Bellingham
"When we were looking for a chimney mason who could tell us what was wrong with our chimney, a brick and stone supplier recommended Ben at Clipper Masonry. Ben had the expertise we were looking for. His analysis was thorough and his approach was customer-oriented. He took time to answer all our questions and to educate us about chimney construction and chimney failure. He didnít over-sell; the bid was very affordable and he stuck to it without cutting any corners. We are completely satisfied with our chimney rebuild and relieved that our problem was solved. We highly recommend Clipper Masonry." Nancy T., Bellingham
