About Burke's Brick Work
My name is Eric Burke, owner of Burke’s Brick Work.I was born in Scarborough in 1990, and grew up in Ajax, Ontario. In September of 2011, I was offered my first job in masonry. I spent 3 years as a labourer for a residential crew, where I learned how to set up job sites, cut bricks and stone, tool the joints - basically every job duty except lay the bricks. In 2014, I left and joined the Union in Toronto for my apprenticeship. The crew I worked with was predominately doing industrial and commercial jobs, mainly laying blocks, and occasionally brick and stone. In 2016, I moved to Port Elgin, Ontario, where I reside now, with my wife, daughter, and dog. During my last semester in school, I decided to start my own business, and gradually I have built the business up, to what you see today. In 2018, I graduated from Conestoga College’s masonry program. In the summer of 2019, I passed the red seal exam, to become a nationally certified mason. I now serve Grey and Bruce County, taking on all and any masonry projects that come my way. From chimney rebuilds, and fireplaces, to new construction, and everything in between.I am eager to hear from you, and would be happy to discuss your ideas, on how I can complete the project of your dreams!
