Business pours all types of concrete

Concrete and Fireplaces by Bernie is a division of B & J Supply, LLC.

The business has more than 30 years experience in fireplaces and mason work, including cement block, cultured and natural stones, brick and flatwork.

Bernie and Janice Schmidt operate the business. “We sell and install fireplaces and fireplace inserts to dress up your home and add coziness to any room,” Janice said. “We can do the job start to finish, including facing your fireplace and adding mantles, cubby shelves, or hearths to complete the look.”

They offer a wide variety of bricks and stones from which to choose, as well as multiple options for faces and doors on the fireplace unit itself.

“Our goal is to help create an inside or outside space you enjoy spending time and entertaining in,” she said. “Perhaps the backyard is a bit drab these days? Let us help you dress it up—just in time for those summer parties—with a new concrete space for that table and chairs, or we can build you a full outdoor kitchen and grill area. We also do brick paver patios and walk-ways.”

Concrete and Fireplaces by Bernie also does concrete slabs as small as underneath the new backyard garden shed, or as large as a new horse barn, and any size in between. That includes driveways, sidewalks and pathways.

Free estimates and provided as are realistic deadlines for completion. “We will walk you through everything from designing your dreams to making them a reality,” Janice said. “Our number-one priority is customer satisfaction.”
