Home About Us

Sidl Masonry Heating is a family owned business on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. We specialize in Austrian masonry heaters, wood fired bake ovens, and decorative concrete.

Our Austrian masonry heaters and wood fired bake ovens are each individually designed and calculated to ensure the most efficient combustion and heat distribution is provide.

Carl Sidl first learnt the trade of building masonry heaters in Nova Scotia from Austrian stove builder Ernst Kiesling. In 2011 Carl spent the year working with various stove builders such as Thurner, Müller and Marvo in both Austria and Southern Tyrol and in 2012 attended the Austrian Tile Stove Association (Kachelofenverband) master course in Vienna, Austria.

In 2014 and 2015 respectively Carl attended decorative concrete training from both Brandon Gore in Arizona, Nevada and Keith Crewe in Vernon, British Columbia. These courses have provided Sidl Masonry Heating the knowledge and skills required to fabricated decorative concrete counters, sinks, tables panels and more. Due to concretes density and thermodynamic properties, it works as a great median to store heat within and therefore is often used in the form of concrete benches surrounding our masonry heaters.
