This was an extremely custom experience with a very happy ending. We noticed
Boston Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
signs around our neighborhood in West
Boston Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
this summer and were impressed by the quality of craftsmanship.
Boston Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
's proposals for our project were detailed and very competitive; he was very conscientious about the timeframe and budget for our project.
Boston Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
is easy to work with and made every effort to understand our preferences and concerns and find solutions; for example we wanted our new bricks steps to look like older brick (minus the crumbling mortar!) and we wanted the brick flower box to curve to meet the walkway (this required a custom granite cut). On several instances
Boston Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
worked beyond the outlines of the contract: cutting and hauling heavy blocks of concrete from the old walkway to our backyard so we could reuse the material, as well as transporting wheelbarrowfuls of excavated soil to the backyard.
Boston Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
was very helpful in finding a creative solution to manage the 3 foot slope between the front walkway and the driveway which is now a lovely combination of landscaped greenspace, granite steps and a flower box.
Boston Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
and his team are professional, hard-working,and personable; the job site was well-managed and tidy at the end of each work day.

's overall experience was very reassuring and the craftsmanship of the work speaks for itself, amazing.

After interviewing 7 different masons, and driving all around the region to look at examples of their work, we settled on
Boston Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
. I have to admit that I was a little skeptical because their price was on the low side. They were a lot less talkative than most of the other masons I'd spoken to. They listened and made suggestions when asked, but deferred to my preferences. We were concerned about finding someone who had experience working on old houses, would understand what we were asking, and do work that was consistent with the style of the property. We have a
Boston Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
era brick row house and I wanted to make sure that the work was clean and matched the existing stone and brickwork. These guys were great. Very professional. They showed up on time and worked from morning until late afternoon. An
Boston Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
, the uncle, was always on site to supervise the workers. The younger Bautisa,
Boston Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
, came by periodically to check on the work and answer questions. They were very clean and quiet. Mr.
Boston Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
was happy to explain the work as they did it. One of the more interesting challenges had to do with working around a massive bluestone that sits at the base of the front entry. There is a coal chute running through this stone (capped), which empties into the space underneath.
Boston Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
did not want to move this stone, both because of its massive size and because it is part of the house's foundation. The problem was that laying granite tiles over this stone raised the height of the walkway, which would mean that the granite stairs would have to be raised as well in order to keep riser heights consistent. He contemplated adding a thin
Boston Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
of granite to the front stairs, which didn't sound too appealing, but then he discovered some ultra thin granite pavers that would not change the height - problem solved. The other problem with that big bluestone was that it was cracked. This was not apparent until they began work in the space underneath. They added a steel reinforcement beam, buried into the foundation walls, to keep the bluestone from moving in the future. This seemed to be serious work, but
Boston Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
did not blink and did not add this as a new cost. We had one minor hiccup toward the end - a little miscommunication about how to handle some rotted bricks in the wine cellar - but
Boston Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
fixed the issue without argument or hesitation. The space looked even better with this last fix. It was a really pleasant experience working with them. We are very happy with their work - lots of compliments from our neighbors. We definitely recommend
Boston Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
and are planning to hire them again for more extensive landscaping in our backyard. We have already recommended them to neighbors.

I took many bids and found Mr. Mateza to be responsive. If I had any questions, he would clarify the situation. He is a local who has the experience to supervise the workers that he hires. I feel that he is a good manager and that I got what I paid for.

and his team were really great. He came out for an estimate within two days and stuck to his initial price. His team--
Boston Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
and
Boston Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
-- were great working until late at night to get the job done, since they knew that we were on a tight schedule. Also one more jobs popped up during the job-- a backsplash on the bathroom, which
Boston Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
was more than willing to do, despite the late hour. Very respectful of the house and also very careful not to damage our new hardwood floors which we had just installed. We are waiting for our cabinets to come in, and we will definitely use
Boston Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
team again. Very pleased with the experience.

It went well for the most part. The job looked very good and professional when it was completed. Unfortunately the existing vapor
Boston Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
was damaged during the work, and I was worried that the company that installed it would void the lifetime warranty. I held back the 25% of the funds until the warranty issue was worked out. This made the
Boston Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
very upset and at first he refused to complete the work. After some negotiation, he completed the work and I paid him once the other company confirmed that the warranty would not be voided. Other than this hiccup, the work was very good, and I'm happy with the result.

Very punctual, professional, knowledgeable of reversing two sets of doors. Started early and finished at end of the day. Advise to put everything on paper so he can follow and provide cost estimate. We will use him again in the future.

We have an 1864 brick row house - 3 stories and a garden level basement. we've been renovating the place incrementally, and this year we were focused on insulation, beginning from the basement up.
Boston Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
came out to provide the estimate and oversee the work. We wanted to replace the front and rear doors to the basement to stop air leakage. This required not only new doors but work on the frames. Replacing the front basement door so that it was air tight required some creativity because there was a floor drain sitting inside the basement behind that door. I wanted the drain moved to be outside and in front of the door at the base of the steps leading to the basement. Sub-contracted masons had to rework the bottom step to move the drain, which meant pouring some new concrete. The masonry work was functional but not particularly pretty.
We also wanted to replace the windows to the back basement wall, which is exposed to the back garden, and insulate the wall. Because there was very little space between the outer brick and the drywall (making it difficult to insulate), we decided to reframe the wall in order to be able to use
Boston Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
insulation. As it turned out, this was a good decision because the window casings had to be completely demolished and rebuilt too. We also had them replace the rear basement door leading to the garden.
The other major part of the project was renovating the front entryway to the house. The old entryway was a plain wood structure with a
Boston Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
glass transom and a glass stormdoor. We wanted the entryway rebuilt with a decorative facade, a new stormdoor, and installation of a pair of antique, lead stained glass windows that we picked up at a New England Demolition and Salvage in New
Boston Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
. We weren't sure how they were going to install the stained glass, since the windows were very old and the lead was pretty soft and brittle. They (Rogerio and
Boston Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
) did an excellent job on installing the windows and creating the new entryway facade (no small feat because the building itself is a little crooked).
There was quite a bit of other work to the entryway. The last genius who owned this place painted over the brick in the entryway and we wanted that removed. A lot of other contractors that we've talked to wouldn't touch this project, but
Boston Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
's guys brought in a high pressure water hose and got almost all of it off. The last big thing in the entryway was the front door itself. It is the original 8 foot tall, quarter sawn oak door (you can see the tiger stripes) with a glass look-through. A lot of damage had been done to the door from repeated changes of locksets, and the entire door needed refinishing because the shellac was peeling.
Boston Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
's guys completely refinished (sanding, staining, polyurethane) the entire door and repaired the old lockset holes so that they are invisible. They installed a really nice new lockset that we picked up and the door looks beautiful now - lots of compliments from neighbors.
The whole project took considerably longer than we anticipated. They started the work in October 2012 and didn't finish until February 2013. Part of this was due to unforeseen problems on their end (events which were understandably out of their control), and, of course, winter weather. They were always responsive, but often unable to come to the house on the days originally promised, which required flexibility on our part. In any case, the length of time was the biggest shortcoming. However,
Boston Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
was consistently responsive whether I called, emailed, or texted. Everyone was very polite and friendly and clean. Overall the work was well done. I wasn't terribly impressed by the sub-contracted masons, but anything done with woodwork was excellent. When I noticed small imperfections,
Boston Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
and his guys made no bones about fixing it to our satisfaction and repeatedly asked how we felt about the work.
Boston Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
also was thorough about fixing problems. After finishing the back basement wall, we had a big rainstorm (sideways rain) and I came down to the basement to find a puddle of water in the room leading from the new wall.
Boston Concrete Repair Contractors Provider Name Locked
surmised that it was likely due to improper caulking on a first story window above the basement, allowing water to run down the inside of the wall. Nevertheless, he reopened the newly finished wall to inspect the insulation and the wall. In addition, he caulked that first story window (not in the contract), and also went out and bought and installed a downspout extension (no charge) to ensure water wasn't soaking the outer wall. He left the wall in the basement open until I was satisfied that water wouldn't come through. Sure enough, we got hit by another big rainstorm shortly after and no water came in.
I will rehire them for future work.
