Came out and gave us a quote. When he said they don't usually use rebar I had second thoughts but my husband said he thought he would do a good job. We had to go buy the rebar for him.
They showed absolutely no respect for our property. I thought a fern would be fine where it was but I guess it wasn't because they dug it out of the ground and threw it down to the bottom of our property instead of asking if I wanted it. When I said something they just dug a hole in the middle of the yard and stuck it in it. There was a branch on a tree that must have been in their way of walking but instead of tying it back or asking us to do so they chopped it of and tossed it on the ground. Since they were two days behind schedule for the pour we had to leave and when we came back we couldn't believe what we saw, there was concrete all over our house (windows included) They left concrete hand prints on the 4"x4"s of the deck. There was concrete splattered on our shed up to 20' away. They tossed boards on some of our plants beside our house instead of putting them on the other side of the walkway where there were no plants. The street in front of our house was covered with rock/concrete. Our arborvitaes lining the street were all grey from them cleaning out the truck. When the guy came to pick up the trash bin he was mad because they had rinsed out the truck and put the extra concrete in the bin. He was going to have a heck of a time getting out dried concrete chunks. When we complained about the mess he offered to come out for a couple hours and move dirt for us. No way do I want him stepping foot on our property and doing any more damage.
If the above wasn't bad enough he tried to charge us more money because it took them longer than planned. We had to contact him several times to get him to come get his boards, wheelbarrows, etc. Two weeks later they finally came and got the stuff.
A few months later we noticed several cracks in our brand new patio. Our old patio was cracked so we would have been better off keeping it. I wish I could include pictures to show everyone, you almost have to see them to believe the damage he caused.

is a true craftsman. He has published articles on building walls. I believe he was on a home improvement television program. Excellent workmanship. Can not praise him enough.

What a fantastic experience! From the first contact,
Merced Stone Paving Specialists Provider Name Locked
showed more professionalism and care for his work than any other local company we contacted.
Bidding Process:
Merced Stone Paving Specialists Provider Name Locked
took the time to come to our property, walk it thoroughly, discuss carefully what we wanted to accomplish, and prepare a written quote that addressed everything we needed. He was far above the others we contacted (all highly rated on Angie's List) with the care he took in this process. This project was treated as though it mattered, where with the other companies it was apparent we were small fish they couldn't be bothered with (one of which didn't even want to bid the project in person, instead asking for photos of the lot by email). I very much appreciated his approach and care for his profession, and also that he understood that people and relationships make the difference.
Work Product:

explained to us how the work would roll out, and it went exactly as planned. We had some small delays due to weather, but that's not something any of us can control, and certainly I'd rather wait on weather than waste materials and money trying to push things! He explained where they were at during different phases, checked in with us several times to discuss the progress and make sure everything was as we needed it, and even did a few extra small things (like planting seed and laying down straw) that we hadn't originally asked him to do. Everything looks great, it's ready for the building, and we haven't gotten to the best part...
Budget: This project came in almost 20% under budget. That never happens. I was expecting to hear about why it cost more than the bid.. and then he told me we'd be coming in a bit under instead! I know
Merced Stone Paving Specialists Provider Name Locked
took particular care to find places with the best prices for the materials needed, and really had ownership of the project and budget as though he was spending his own money. It's very rare for someone to care about a client's pocketbook in the way that he did with this project.
I am very, very happy with the service from
Merced Stone Paving Specialists Provider Name Locked
and would absolutely recommend

and his crew to anyone looking for excavation work.

The estimator provided an over-the-top quote. An hour after the first appointment he scheduled he called and said he was running late(obviously), he rescheduled, showed up 3 hours late to the second appointment. A week later I still didn't have any numbers. I wasn't going to use this guy but was curious about the price so I called. He gave me a quote for 3 times as much as the company I ended up using. This guy was a disaster.

I was very pleased with the way our
Merced Stone Paving Specialists Provider Name Locked
turned out.
Merced Stone Paving Specialists Provider Name Locked
was very knowledgeable and personable. We were throughly satisfied with the choice of materials. The attention to detail and workmanship were excellent. Another reason we hired
Merced Stone Paving Specialists Provider Name Locked
is that he uses his own employees and does not subcontract the work out. We found this to be a huge plus!

Buyer beware. Unethical contractor. Tried to charge us for work never performed and then abandoned the job when he was caught. Very poor craftsmanship. Stone was literally falling off the house after installation, and then he had the audacity to claim we tried to sabotage his work. You won’t get what you paid for, and you will likely need to hire another mason to complete his shoddy work.

Wished I had checked angies list before using this company. I am having the same problems as the other reviewer., late, doesn't come when scheduled and no calls. It took 3 weeks of me calling every few days before they delivered my last load. I do not recommend this co.
