Default Where to buy in or around Toronto, Canada ?

Hey guys, how are you.

I am looking for firebricks and mortar mix to fix my woodstove.
/ Yeah, I know it's not an oven /

Can anyone give me a suggestion where I can find materials needed in GTA area? if you know more than one or suggest someone in particular let me know why

Thank you in advance.

Danny.

An ordinary brickyard or masonry supply should have both full thickness and half thickness firebricks, and some sort of high temp. mortar mix. Do a google maps search for masonry supplies, you should have a number to choose from.

GTA = Greater Toronto Area. I don't have an answer to where to get supplies.
It would be nice if there was a forum page that dealt with things like GTA, FB, KA etc KA seems to have two meanings Kitchen aide and King Arthur... reading can drive an unfamiliar person half crazy when you can't find the meanings of these abbreviations

Patene Building Supplies will have everything that you need. The web site says it's on Trafalgar near the 401.
If you feel like driving to Brantford, the owner of Venture Refractory will provide you with a ton of information, and have better prices than Patene to boot.

Danny,
Get in touch with CanuckJim on this site. If you're in Scarberia (sorry), he's not that far from you - Prince Albert, near Port Perry. He'll give you good sources.

And welcome to the Board

Has anyone compared all of these recently? I'm having trouble (without much effort) finding basic prices for stuff like fire bricks and cinder blocks...

It would be nice to get a comprehensive listing of where to buy:
- firebrick (I visited Alphatherm today - Elvis was very helpful and prices sounded good): about $1.79 per 4x9 brick
- refractory mortar - same deal - about $50 per bucket
- cinder block (no idea where best to buy these - they're $3 at RONA - seems expensive)
- Vermiculite or Perlite - Where does one find this?
- Concrete delivery or mix at home?
- stucco
