Tulsa Stone and Brick Works owner Randy Sissom at a work-in-process job site featuring an outdoor fireplace and patio.
Owner Randy Sissom began doing business as Tulsa Stone and Brick Works in 2001. The original company, Tulsa Brick Works, originated 50 years ago by Randy’s father, was solely in residential housing. Today, Randy’s focus is in outdoor custom masonry applications that include fireplaces, patios, kitchens, brick and stone mailboxes, planters, chimney repair, brick and stone repair, block masonry, waterfalls, retaining walls, koi ponds, and some interior fireplace remodeling. Tulsa Stone and Brick Works uses manufactured and natural stone and brick. When you visit a job site, you’re certain to appreciate the craftsmanship and attention to detail.
If you want to create the perfect outdoor living space, an outdoor kitchen is an essential element. Randy and his team provide total construction for outdoor kitchens complete with electric, plumbing, carpentry and any other service that may be needed. You may consider an option that might include your current grill or one of the several built-in models of natural gas, propane, and charcoal grills offered by Tulsa Stone and Brick Works. “Whatever your ambition, we can help make it a reality,” said Randy.
A lot of character is added to an interior or outdoor fireplace with the inclusion of a solid wood mantel. “All of our wood mantels are 100 percent solid timber,” said Randy. “Much of it is reclaimed and is more than 100 years old, providing a unique touch.” Tulsa Stone and Brick Works also imports exotic woods from around the world, and their stock changes quickly. Call to inquire about current inventories.
An outdoor living lifestyle is significantly enhanced with the addition of an outdoor fireplace. They bring warmth to chilly evenings and add character to any backyard landscape. Each fireplace is custom-built and handcrafted.
Tulsa Stone and Brick Works provides a turn-key service. You’ll receive unprecedented craftsmanship and will find Randy and his crew friendly and convenient as they provide all materials necessary to completing the task. Whether your project is small or large, you’ll receive Randy’s undivided attention.
For your safety, Randy suggests that you always request general liability and workers comp certificates prior to having any work done. Be sure the certificates are in the name of the company that will be providing services. No one wants to be caught in a dispute between your contractor and his subcontractors when you have already paid your contractor in full.

He has completed beautiful examples of his skills at the Linnaeus Teaching Garden in Tulsa, including a stone memorial arch for Walt Helmerick and a brick memorial arch for Tulsa Garden Center gardeners. If you visit the Tulsa Garden Center you’ll also see a beautiful outdoor fireplace and kitchen that was created by Tulsa Stone and Brick Works.
“We stand behind our work and provide a one-year guarantee on every project,” says Randy. The company is licensed, bonded and gladly provides insurance certificates upon request. “We currently build more outdoor fireplaces, kitchens and brick mailboxes than any company in the state,” Randy added. Tulsa Stone and Brick Works is a dealer for
Cal-Flame, and quotes on any project are always free. If you have an idea of what you would like to do, Randy will gladly offer his experience and advice to help make it a reality at a price that won’t break the bank.
