The Best in Masonry and Concrete Supplies for Toronto

Fireplace Products

A chimney flue liner is described as a clay, ceramic or metal channel that is installed inside a chimney designed to protect the chimney walls from heat and corrosion. A chimney cap is like a small roof over your chimney. It will prevent animals from entering your home, keep the moisture out, and protect the roof from burning embers that could result in a house fire. Bernardi Building Supply offers clay liners and caps. A fireplace damper is a metal frame that shapes the throat of the fireplace and has a hinged lid to regulate the draft. It can also close the throat when the fireplace is not being used.

Concrete Products

There are many ingredients that come together to form concrete. There are pre-mixes and self-mixes and pros and cons to each type. What you need depends on what you’re doing and it’s a good thing that Bernardi Building Supply understands all about cement. The basic ingredients include Portland cement, lyme, sand and water. Portland cement provides strength but can crack when cured due to shrinkage. Lime provides bond strength and flexibility. Sand adds volume and reduces the chances of shrinkage as the cement dries. Water makes the mix easier to work and activates hydration, which is a chemical reaction that hardens the cement. If you add calcium chloride to the mix, it will improve cold weather pouring. Bernardi Building Supply carries all the necessary ingredients and has knowledge of the proper mixes for your every need. We also carry all the necessary concrete tools for your project.

We carry an extensive supply of products to shape and reinforce concrete. Rebar, short for reinforced bar, is defined as a steel rod with ridges used in reinforced concrete. Wire mesh operates under the same principle and serves to strengthen the concrete. Sonotube is a company that makes forms for concrete. This is the most cost-effective way to create round columns for buildings, entryways, structural columns, light posts, and other structures. There are different grades of Sonotube forms and with our extensive knowledge and experience we are able to advise you on the correct one to use for your project.

Do you want your concrete to be tinted a different colour than the usual grey? Well, Bernardi Building Supply can help with this request too. Working with Davis Colors, Bernardi can offer a variety of mortar colors, which can be mixed into the concrete mix. We will be able to offer our expertise about this process and will work with you to provide customer satisfaction.
