"It went badly. The coupon was for $99 worth of Masonry work for 4 hours. We needed some tuckpointing done on our home, and the guy comes out and takes a look and he gives us a $8000 price tag for the work. I asked him to do 4 hours worth of work and he said that it didnt work that way. We had to call Angieslist to get our money back. In addition, it took about 4 calls for them before they called us back, and that was for the original estimate.

"We are undertaking an extensive exterior renovation of our c.1927
Revival and badly needed masonry restoration represented Phase I.
This was our first experience with a provider found on Angie's List and we were very pleased. I received a very prompt response to my initial request for an estimate and in comparison to other quotes we obtained,
was most in line with the extent of restoration we felt necessary as well as within our budget.
The work began within a few days of our having signed the contract and continued daily until completion. I was especially impressed with the crew's punctuality and how respectful they were of the jobsite. They tidied up the work area everyday before they left.
I was also impressed by how well they were able to match the color of the new mortar to that contained within the existing grout lines. They also cleaned up the unsightly repairs where the previous homeowner had attempted to repoint sections of the brickwork himself years ago.
In summary, if you're looking for quality, old world craftmanship, I would strongly recommend
Handy. It truly was a pleasure dealing with
, his son
and the rest of the crew.
I am hoping the next phases of our exterior renovation go as well as the masonry restoration did.

and his colleague showed up promptly, and worked steadily until job was done. Cleaned up at end of each day and when job was finished. Repaired areas look better than they have in years. Very nice job!

"In 15 years of working with contractors I have rarely met such an unbalanced, aggressive, unprofessional contractor. I was very clear with Mr. Ramstack what we were looking for in terms of quality and scope. The masonry building we were restoring had interesting brickwork and style that we wanted to highlight and restore. Although things started well, they quickly began to fall apart as I had to repeatedly show Mr. Ramstack the mortar joints he had failed to tuckpoint, as well as other shortcomings in his work. Initially he worked very hard, but within a few days began to complain about the time it was taking him to complete his work.
At one point, he became beligerent and aggressive with me as I sat in my car. Although I am a relatively big guy, he refused to back away from my car, challenging me to get out so that he could try to "fight" with me. He eventually backed down when I pulled out my cell phone camera and began to record his ridiculous antics.
I was unable to get him to complete the work as agreed upon in our written contract. He demanded payment in full, without having completed significant parts of the job including chemical wash. I was forced to retain an attorney to settle with him. I paid him in full, despite the incomplete project, so as to not waste anymore time with such an obviously incapable and incompetent contractor.
I have documented the shortcomings of his work extensively for the record. I have seen his beat up truck in other neighborhoods we work in, including the

Heights and Bay View.
I wouldn't recommend this guy to spackle a nail hole.

"It went great. We were in a time crunch with an estate house sale and the repair had to be done by a specific time. The job was done right away and we were very happy with the results and within 4 days of the closing too. I would recommend this company to anyone who wants a prompt professional job and a good price.

gave estimate & did work promptly. He was courteous & professional. Near end of the project, he recognized he needed a different-shaped stone. Rather than "rush" job and install a substandard piece, he came back the next day & finished with the correct material.

was extremely helpful and professional through every step of the process. He provided accurate estimates while we were still in escrow which helped us negotiate repair credits with the seller. He provided us with expert advice which helped us make decisions on how to best proceed with the work that needed to be done. My handyman noticed additional areas in need of repair and

added the additional work with no problem. He emailed before and after pictures of the work completed on the roof. We're very satisfied with the work completed and will definitely work with

again.

"The ad said clean, inspect for safety, replace logs if necessary. All the guy could do is clean. He said he could not inspect for safety, he could not replace logs and did a louse job cleaning the soot on the fireplace. He did not bring the tools necessary to remove the glass so I provided my own. I had to go the hardware store to get some replacement screws that he stripped. I was ripped off and could have done what he did very easily myself. I would never recommend them to anyone.

"Excellent workmanship, work ethic, and drive to exceed expectations! We got WAY MORE than we paid for! I would hire

and his work partner

again without hesitation. He was the only contractor in the area with the credentials and willingness to strip lead based paint from the exterior of our house to restore the beautiful creme city brick underneath. The lead abatement was a messy undertaking and involved essentially wrapping a curtain around our entire house and
Milwaukee Masonry Contractors Provider Name Locked
suggested scheduling it while we were on vacation which worked out perfectly. We came back a week later and the abatement was complete and we were able to see the beautiful brick underneath!

There was one last room in the back of the house that still had wood siding. Per his suggestion, we had the siding removed and replaced with vinyl as opposed to repair/repaint. When
Milwaukee Masonry Contractors Provider Name Locked
noticed there was no insulation underneath, he added it. He also had all of our electrical in that area moved underneath the siding so the final look was much more finished.
When casually talking to him about water seepage in our basement, he made it part of his clean up and replacement of things like the downspouts to make sure everything was draining away from the house. Because the abatement was messy, he brought in soil and also corrected the grade around the perimeter to make sure water was draining properly. Plus, I everything got mulched which was a big perk and timesaver for me! Since all of his extra efforts, WE HAVE HAD NO WATER SEEPAGE INTO OUR BASEMENT! He easily could have just put everything back the way it was, but he went above and beyond in this and so many other ways. Now, I don't have to find another contractor to resolve that issue.

also called me a couple months later to see how the basement was holding up as far as leaking. Again, this was simply out of concern. It was those extra calls throughout the process and after that made him so easy to work with.
